    I'm new to the field and I dont have landscaping experience.I'm thinking about leveling yards,busting and hauling concrete,and drainage.Can you recomend other things I can do with rental attachments aside from landscaping.The main thing is keeping the machine running enough to make payments year round.Thanks.

    i would say if you are wondering if there is enough work to make the payments you need to be renting for a while longer. renting is not a bad way to go. it gives you the ability to have the perfect machine for whatever work you are doing. after a period of time you will know what you need and can get it then. mini skids are great but as a stand alone piece of equipment to pay the bills i'm not sure how it will do.
    good luck,

    Lawrence, you mention you are trying to start out on your own. If you're in New Orleans, there must still be lots of clean up work. Get your name out letting people know that you're willing to do ANYTHING labor oriented. Once you get a list of odd jobs and customers, word travels fast and THEN you can choose what you want to do. Get the name out first though and the phone will start to ring.
