Wow, interesting to see how yall do it down there. Here, 95% of guys vibrate the line in. Works great, and is sometimes a big selling point. Most customers assume I'lll trench up the lawn, but I vibrate it in and run my tracks over and they get home from work and can't even really tell I pulled lines everywhere.

This is trenched in with a rock saw, and we installed heads with a jack hammer. It is solid limestone, you cant pull pipe in our area. That is why it looks like white powder on each side of the trench.

Ah wow, did not realize that. Regardless though it looks like you guys do some nice work. I enjoy looking at other peoples irrigation work! There are times that here in Kansas it would almost be nice to have the rock setup like that! Depending on where you are in the state of course

I would love to see a system installed using a pipe puller. I have honestly never seen a pulling rig in C. Texas.

Vermeer Ride on. We are in an area that we encounter rock on every job. We do not have to use a rock saw on every job, but all of our chain trenchers have a "shark" setup. We also have a jack hammer on every truck.

The guy with the phone is operating the Calsense2000 controller. It can be completely controlled with a smart phone.

Nope, most of the time we are working off specs developed by a landscape arch.
