You can start your own business, work for yourself and earn quite a bit of money, if you have a tractor to use and a trailer to pull. You can also rent a tractor on a trailer at the beginning of your business, at your local rental yard, and ask for a special discount, since you will be renting more than once. This will give you a good feel first, to see if you like the work of the tractor. You can search multiple places for the best deal and then ask for an even better deal, there’s nothing wrong with that.
Once you have access to a tractor, there is plenty of subdivision work, construction work, road grading, just about anything you can think of, to use with a tractor. You could contract with some companies that build houses. They should generally always be leveled with a tractor before you start building anything. Other houses on large lots, or even acres, such as 1, 2, 5 and even larger lots, need a tractor to level their large yards and keep weeds at bay.
Many houses in the west are like this, especially in the desert areas. Fall weeks grow so fast that most houses need tractors to remove all the weeds from their land and make it look clean again. You can make a tractor service flyer that you can hand out to landscapers, construction companies, real estate agents, and more. Then you can do some advertising in the local newspaper. Make sure you have some nice signs on your vehicle too, to get more customers. It also doesn’t hurt to have a great advertisement on the trailer you use to pull the tractor.
Most rental shops charge a minimum of $200, just to rent a small tractor and trailer, so you know you can make money targeting the right customers. Horse house owners are also in a good place, as pens for horses and other animals need to be cleaned regularly so that animals don’t get trapped in their own environment. Which means they need to be cleaned all the time, and you’ll get repeat business with that. Many new home lots must be cleared of weeds before a new home can be built. Other homeowners like to weed regularly and will be your regular customers. And then whatever sides, or different jobs that come up, you can tackle them, if you think you can handle the job.
