A couple things:

They make a tip for a pressure washer that you install on a pipe and they make a tip you install on a pipe and drive under driveway with a hammer.

What kind of soil? Rocky? Sand? Clay?

If you want to bore a 2" sleeve, you will need to rent something. I would not want to hammer anything that big under a drive. You could prob find someone to bore it for about $250-400

You seem to have answered your own question.

Best of luck to you.

Yeah, a two inch sleeve would be a *****! Not sure why he needs 2" for a few cables.

call around to some rental store and see who has a piercing tool (mole) for rent. If not then cut the drive.

Big sledgehammer and a 20' piece of black steel pipe. That's how we used to do it in the olden days.
