Hi all, I’ve been operating my part time business as a 1 man band the past 2 years handling snow and ice removal as well as lawn care. My primary account is the company I work full time for. I’ve been able to keep up and punch in at 6, however this year my full time gig expanded and went from 4 medium size lots to 7 medium lots. I’ve also got very strong leads on another 2-3 accounts. All locations are within 1 mile.I need to add equipment this year to make it happen and trying to make the smartest choice between a skid loader or another truck. Option #1 adding another truck. Pros: Smallest investment, cheaper operating cost, ability to throw salt. Ability to add a 2nd lawn care rig and bid other properties. Cons: I’ve already got 1 business truck and 1 personal truck. A 3rd truck would not benefit me personally or make my business any more profitable in the off season unless adding another lawn care set up. Option #2 adding a skid loader Pros: more productivity working the skid and truck together as a team leading to potential bids of other properties. Equipment could be used during summer months to turn profit. Adding a piece of equipment I do not already own to expand services. Cons: most expensive, higher operating cost, and I’m in the middle of skid loader country so finding jobs 1-2 guys could handle in the off season might be difficult due damn near everyone but me owning one. Any thoughts or advice on which way to go?
