Looks like it could be handy, I just know how well it'd work for a 10 ft slab though. Sure as h*ll gotta make sure that auger bit is straight otherwise you'll constantly just be knocking dirt back down.

All it is is a little doo dad that you can attach a 3/4 inch electric drill to and a garden hose, and you add 4 foot sections of 3/4 inch pipe with a drill bit on the end. Unless you are just doing a sidewalk or something, its a muddy job and its hard on my labourers back. I sometimes get my boots dirty watching him......
I'd like to see a picture of this

Also J sometimes when we push a pipe through and it wont go I just use our plate compactor on the mini to drive it through. I don't know if you have one or have the need for one but it is impressive what they will drive.
