Mini backhoe service


LawnSite Member
I use to run a rental company and have since moved into doing (light) landscaping, and lawn care service. I still have from the rental business 2 mini backhoes (a terramite t5c and a dig it 198t) both with low hours and well maintained (with a small 8" bucket and a 18"). Is there a market for a mini fel/backhoe work out there? I have (in the past) done some little jobs, but never thought of moving it into a business (I do NOT wish to explore digging graves...I know good work but the thought just freaks me out. ).

I am willing to invest in a small (perferably 1 ton) dump truck if nessary but, do not want to buy other equipment (at this time) to do this business.

How would one go about marketing this business???

There's a guy that advertises in the weekly paper for mini backhoe work (ad even has small graphic of a mini backhoe).
In big bold text it says $85 per hour. Mentions driveway, walkway and patio demolition.
