As I have mentioned several times since I have been a member of this forum. Im starting a small side business. So far the only jobs I know I will have lined up will be some construction debris removal contracts. Naturaly the equipment of choice for that would be a skid steer. But I personaly have alot more seat time from a backhoe loader. Ive run a few skid steer/CTL's, but am nowhere near as confident in my skills on one. Though my seat time has been VERY limited. Maybe an hour or 2 total. I was thinking maybe something like a Kubota L48. With the backhoe off, the size of the tractor and a skid steer will be pretty close. Though the tractor will still be a little longer, I doubt there would be anywhere the skid steer could get that the Tractor couldn't. Naturaly the versatility of a machine like the L48 is very attractive. I also don't mind being "the guy with the grapple bucket on a tractor" doing the debris removal, as long as its getting done.... Any opinions?
