One of the posters wisely noted that "niches equal riches". I thought about that when I helped my brother for a day with a niche he has for his paving business. It is a small business mostly driveways and small parking lots. He did some work at a golf course and they wanted him to quote redoing the cart paths, which apparently most paving companies don't care to do. He came up with the idea of hauling in the blacktop with compact tractors and dump trailers which turns out to be a less intrusive method than backing in dump trucks or having them turn around on the turf. Or bucketing in blacktop with skid steers. Pretty cool little job, requiring lots of coordination with 20 pieces of equipment, but it did not require closing that part of the course or cause any damage to the turf. By the way the budget for the project is $50k per year for 5 years. While it is not lawn renovation related, it is a good example of a niche that exists. What started the dump trailer program is we do volunteer work on snowmobile trails and built a couple of them from salvaged dump boxes over the years to haul in gravel on problem areas of the trail. Another little niche I found was removing the berms in a horse arena, the horses kick the dressage to the perimeter walls of the arena. A customer who has me till her garden and mow the paddocks asked if there would be a way to remove the berms and level it out. I had built a hydraulically controlled depth control roller for my box blade some time ago which worked pretty well, so a couple of hours with some recycled cutting edge, plasma cutter and welder and came up with an wing that bolts under the side of the box blade with a depth control wheel from my sod cutter. The idea was to pull the berm away from the wall so there is room enough to box blade it away and meter it out. First time out and it actually worked pretty well. She was happy and her husband was thrilled as he had been digging it out by hand and trying to drag it around with the arena leveler. I have a video but I cannot load them onto this post. Hoping there are some other niches this group is willing to share, being niches there is a limited market for them but your operation may already have some less mainstream equipment that may be adapted for them.
