I know it cant be all that hard, I've done it before and thats all Dad used to do. Course its easier with 2 or 3 guys, it is alot harder on one..
Well its hard work to me, I much rather sit on the yanmar and dig trench, but after about 30 minutes you get a crook in your neck from looking at the offset boom.

Oh well I've done everything alone. might as well finish it alone.

I was just messing with in that first part, I think you've spent to much time on the machine, time to head back for a little ditch ***** action..

And I get ya, but it can be fun at times, add a little challenge to it is what makes it fun..

I thought the secret to removing a section of sidewalk was to cut it with the diamond saw in each crack, then get under it with forks, lift and do your work, then put it back like a patiostone, and hope no one notices? That's what I do.

Why would you core drill a sidewalk JR, core drilling is where you cut a circular hole in the concrete. Do you mean use a horizontal drill (Bore under)

Riverwalk everytime I want to save a piece like that I end of chipping the edges, now if I don't plan on saving the concrete it comes out perfect, go figure.
