Well, the dump bed cost $5000 to have it welded back on...and I was only making $15/hr (that one wasn't really my fault, though).

Shoot, you haven't begun to make expensive mistakes until you're running heavy equipment. Especially if you're doing snow removal.

3 gallons of diesel? $500 of paper? You're barely getting...

The smaller your hands, the easier it is. It helps to be a little bit limber, too.

That said, I'm 41, 6'0", 185-ish, flexible as a 2x4, and managed to do it at least twice (that was 2-3 years...

I would second this opinion. I've been in the trades almost 20 years, and I've seen the regional brands come and go, usually on the lower-end tract homes. On the better homes, the national brands...
