    What Kind of work can be done with this machine that will make money? I can get a heck of a deal and if there is any profitable work I really dont want to pass it up. I would appreciate the help.

    Great little 4 ton mini They are tough, Worth charging 50 to 60 a hour. They would be popular with plumbers. Hope this helps

    I would land some work before buying a machine, but that's just me. A 331 is a popular size across the board, you can get that size machine just about anywhere. I'm not a fan of Bobcat minis, I think there are better machines out there in comparable size classes, but if you get a good enough deal just go for it.
