    Anybody making money with thier SCUT? Doing what?

    So far I have been given a bottle of vodka, a stereo, more tomatoes and eggplants than I know what to do with, all for doing odd jobs to help out. Is anybody using these to make some coin?

    I run adds on Craigslist for supplemental cash. I actually do very well. I fill the void between the landscapers and the larger custom farmers.

    I have 2 neighbors that have already asked me to plow snow for them this winter. That wasn't an intent when I bought it but if I can cover a few payments a year and get out of the house for a bit during the winter at the same time I'm up for it. I may have 2 more asking fairly soon too.

    I do a little of everything. Dirt work, tilling yards and gardens, mowing, driveway grading, and shredding overgrown weeds and what not. Pretty much general small tractor work, just whatever they need done.

    All of my side work I do pays for my tractor. I mow lawns with it, brush hog, loader work, aerate lawns with it for work, and more. I really like the tractor and seems the perfect size for all of these things.

    Do You Need Friends...???

    Do you need friends...buy a pick-up truck! Need still more friends...buy a trailer for that pick-up truck!! If those aren't enough friends...buy a 1025R!!!

    I personally never had any intention to make money with my 1025R. But it has had unintended benefits via doing favors and volunteer efforts. It was a bear of a winter last year here in NE PA. So helped neighbor plow driveway. Did some minor FEL work clearing a culvert and pulling out dead shrubs. Hauled on trailer and spread roughly 30 yards of mulch for a local organization that works with mentally challenged folks...a volunteer effort. Mowed a 5 acre field several times. And the latest and currently on-going, dug ten holes (42" deep) for concrete piers, excavated for concrete pad and graded all for a 60 foot handicap ramp for an (very nice) elderly man...again a volunteer effort for Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).

    So far...a bottle of Jim Beam, a $50 gift card to a local restaurant, a $25 Home Depot gift card, and hunting privileges to some prime property. Certainly not expected, but nice gestures in appreciation.

    Regards,
    Mike

    I had a 28 x 26 shop built back in 2009.. The contractor used a 2305 with a backhoe and loader to excavate for the entire foundation.. After all of the digging, he used it to bring in all of the gravel before the concrete was poured.. I was stunned at what the guy did with a machine that size in the short amt of time it took.. Granted he was a very experienced operator.. Thats why I bought the 1023.. After seeing what the 2305 could do, I knew there was no way I needed anything bigger.. Based on the cost breakdown of the shop, I figure that guy made about $4000 for two days of seat time on his 2305..
