I am preparing a business plan for small business loan, and I would like to get your experience in cost of maintaining of skid steer. What kind of expenses should I expect daily/weekly/monthly/yearly? What kind of equipment/tool is "MUST" and can't live without when using skid steer on job site? (for emergency or cleaning or whatso) Would greatly appreciate your respond to this thread! Thanks!

I can tell you for sure thet you will need a grease gun with lots of grease. You can also figure doing an oil change with fuel and oil filters every 200 hours or so ( ~$100) . I don't know what conditions you will be working in but tires should last about 500 hours or more, tracks would last about 800-1200 hours. Tracks cost about $4000 a set. You also need to figure on hydro filter changes. I would go to your local dealer and they should be able to help you the most.
