Not to mention a sore body. It took me years to learn to pace myself once the season began.

Check the spades at Forestry Suppliers. Nice selection of top notch digging tools in my opinion.

That whole outfit is a class act. You can order Lincoln Moisture Meters from them, too.

Used to buy only Razorbacks and Zac Tools trenching shovels, till i found these:

Link is for the 3" flavor, they come up to 5" wide which matches up with our riding trencher very nicely.

Yup that is it. I own about 15 of those bad boys, but have never used one. I like the wooden long handled sharp shooters.

ha, trust me I would much rather be on the business end of a shovel than the business end of a computer all day. It is cheeper to hire a laborer than it is to hire someone to run a company.

Between permits, plans, as-builts, inspections, accounting, bidding, "my tire is flat," it's a full time job.

I wonder how this all steel with the serrated edges would work? Not sure its available on this one. They say two models but don't say which two.
