I have been told here that regular trenches like a Dingo need special teeth for pavement. Ditch Witch says they have a 50 hp model that will do the job. $700 for the rental. About 100' total to be trenched.

Opines anyone?

Rent a walkbehind concrete cutting saw. It will give you clean lines unlike that trencher you are trying to rent. Then dig by hand and install your pipe. The clean lines from the concrete saw are going to make the patch of a pavement look a lot cleaner when you are done.
