Quoted for ultimate truth..

Assumption is the mother of all screw ups.

We did a job a few weeks ago, commercial job at a hotel. We were pulling pieces of concrete out of ground that weighed over 150 pounds with the 1820 and there was no dirt it was all rock under the 2 or 3 inch layer of dirt.

Im fairly certain my boss had wished he did a little more exploration before he gave them a price.
