A question we get asked often is “hey were starting to build paver patios now so what should we invest in first a bobcat or mini skid steer”. In this video we talk about the versatility of the machine we chose for our company, but that doesn’t mean it is the right decision for every company. Its important you really look at what services your company is going to offer and focus on before purchasing a machine. You can get the same attachments for a full size skid steer and a mini skid steer. We discuss the options of buying new or used equipment, being mechanically inclined, warranty on machines, etc.
Our company started with a very used Ditchwitch SK500 and then a few years later we bought a very used Bobcat 763. Both machines did what we needed them to do but they also came with a lot of repair bills so that is something you need to plan for if purchasing used.
We hopes this helps your decision for your newly started hardscape company.
