Hey guys here's a little background. I'm 20, I am a sophomore in college. I mowed lawns for the last 4 years and made a killing doing it. I even contemplated not going to college, but eventually my parents convinced me and I'm now a pilot building time, and I'm hoping to fly for a charter airline upon graduation. Anyways, I terribly miss mowing and working outside with equipment. I def. have the desire to get back into the business but I want something that will allow me to work year round but not keep me in town (like mowing lawns would.) I want the freedom to travel and schedule my own jobs, so I'm thinking about a skid steer/Bobcat (or CAT) business. What kind of prices can you charge? I know it differs by the area, but what's an average hourly charge? Also, I ideally it would be me and only me working with one skid steer, one trailer and one truck. (I have none of the three, as I sold my truck and trailer for school, BIG MISTAKE!). Anyways, what kind of advice would you older guys have for this 20 year old. Thanks. Chandler I should also add that I work 40 hours at the airport doing cargo and fuelling planes for airlines and GA aircraft. So, I would want something that gives me the flexibility to work my business during the weekends and while not at school and my full time gig.
