    is it possible to market and offer tractors services and keep it busy full time. I recently sold my masonry eqpt. but still have my Kioti tractor and would like to work SOLO for a change but still earn a little money!

    Its very hard to do. I have enough trouble to keep mine busy two days a week. Depends on what attachments you have. My tiller is the biggest money maker. My shop built backhoe (if I ever get it finish) will be in a big demand do to its small size for little jobs. Brush hogging is always good. Most important is snow removal. The real money maker if its snowing. You have to have attachments to keep it busy year round.

    If you got a good rep you can have plenty of work. I have a good rep for mowing, mulch and little projects. Not many people know that I have a tractor now. But I got a good rep from the people who know I have it.
