I totally agree. My truck in particular is completely useless. I'm not ruling out the purchase of a skid steer or a Dingo, however there are other things that I feel that need to be included in the price that should go with it: F450 or F550 dump and an equipment trailer. Yes I could tow the skid steer in the dump trailer with my truck, but I think the only way the skid steer makes jobs efficient and profitable is tow the skid on a trailer with a dump truck and then tow the dump trailer with my truck to jobs. One dumping apparatus goes to the job full of material, one goes empty and they leave the opposite or both full of ripout. There are other pieces to the business puzzle that are also taking financial priority for me. I need an enclosed trailer to keep all of the landscape equipment in BAD. It is a rolling toolbox that if sized and set up correctly, can be dropped at the job site and has everything we will need. I can't tell you how many times a truck leaves for materials or to go dump and while its gone "hey wheres the (insert name of tool here)? Oh its in the truck that just left" or "oh we didn't know we would need that so its at home" So thats a pretty big priority for me on that end of things right now. If I do stay in this business, a Dingo will certainly come with time and I think that would be more productive for us than a full size skid because we work in a lot of tight spaces and smaller yards. As with everything though, I can sit here all day and speculate what would work and what wouldn't and then I could get a string of jobs that comes along that leads me down a different path. I know its important to plan but sometimes when you don't have HUGE amounts of working capital its hard to make some of these bigger purchases and then have it sitting there on down time in between uses. If I bought a skid steer and only used it a couple days a week then it probably wouldnt be making any money on the investment so it wouldnt be worth it. And at this point in where I'm at, I'm not even close to having the kind of work that I could even justify using such a machine 2-3 days a week.
