I know that stuff is pretty tough..

if you can wet it a few times a day or two, then rent a 410 its worth a shot.... you need a 2 inch line you said?

Mighty soft material if a backhoe can dig it out. Guess I'm just spoiled on limestone and quartzite.

Busted the drive gears on two of 'em before. Looks like it might work in milder digging conditions like what is shown.
Trenches are thin so multiple ditches may be required.
