    After 8 years of doing general mowing, basic landscaping jobs, and snow plowing I am looking at getting a skid steer. It's main application would be in the winter for snow clearing. I have a large number of homes extremely close together. I plan on putting a 7-8' wide blower on a skid steer that would have high flow hydros and a 2 speed tranny. I am curious what other type of work I could get into with the machine come summer. I use to have 4 guys that worked for me but have scaled back down to being a solo operation. I'm just trying to figure out if i'll be able to find work to keep the machine busy all year long. What types of jobs would be feel suited for a solo guy?
