NOP.. Unless i want drive that to full time job instead of my truck.. I would have to leave a heck of alot earlier thats for sure..

I would lease or rent just for the winter.. I mainly do grass cutting in the green season and a bit of landscape and light sodding jobs so no real need and cant park it anywhere.

I want to be able to drive this from job site to job site so i can recover the cost of the unit and make a bit more money as well as have something to do removal of snow from the site's when required..

Think about this, look at the way the skid steer operator is dressed and then look at the loader operator. Skid steer "Cold, no heat", loader "Warm, with heat and radio". Have spent may a night in the loader with jeans and a t-shirt. Thers no way you would get me to run the skid steer for more than an hour without a good warm up break.

Crash

I was in a bobcat this spring for my Full time job Home Depot and i was claning out the snow from the garden center to get read and our store rented a bobcat and on the last day i drove it. I was so hot i had to wear a short sleve shirt in there.

You can get a Bobcat, Case & JD, Cat all with heated cabs. Thats what you would get.
I drive a lil john deere tractor for a guy now and i have to wear layers of cloathing and my toes freeze hands as well even in gloves it has a soft cab on it but the wind still gets in. This year he has got a bigger machine and its got no cab at all.

Next year i would like to get into snow work for myself and if my full time job wont allow it i will figure out what to do then.
