Hello to all. I am a newbie on this site and I have a few questions for all of you experienced diiggers. I am looking to get into the backhoe business with my own dump truck, trailer and backhoe. I have been in the retail business for a while and it stinks now that the economy has taken a dump. I have enough funds to pay for all of my equipment so I will not have any payments. I plan on getting insurance to cover myself. The big question is, is it worth getting into this type of business. I know that you have to work at anything that you do but I want to know about the money and the profit margins. I would like to hear all thoughts.
