Hi, new to this site. I have always loved heavy equipment and I love operating skidsteers every chance I get, which isn't very often. I would like to find a part-time job that would allow me to follow my dreams and operate a skidsteer loader 2-3 days a week, eventually getting enough experience where I could start a part-time skidloader business. I guess my questions is do landscape and/or excavating companies actually hire part-time operators. I would work for next to nothing or maybe even free. I need experience and want to run skidsteer loaders. That's my dream and passion. Sounds a little weird, doesn't it? Any assistance anyone could give me would be great!
