What is everyone doing or using to bore under concrete sidewalks, slabs, parking lots etc. ??? Type of equipment? Brands?

Thanks for any input.

That link supplied doesn't seem to mention the Borit tool, which is a relatively inexpensive way to go. I've only used mine once so far, but it worked beautifully, though I know it won't work in all conditions. If you search this forum for "Borit" you'll find a bunch of links, or you can check out their website, www.borit.com.

For short sidewalks 5'-6' we just use the pipe and nozzle method. For longer bores we use an old Borit set-up on a good right angle drill but usually keep those bores to 15'. If it's a long bore (usually for large pipe) we contract it out.
