I didn't go out until about 1130, got 10 done. Found out the stander doesn't fit through one of my gates. Only one it doesn't fit. Bleh.

Yeah I was thinking about doing that. I could just go back and load up the old 32" WB but that's not very convenient. Can't fit both mowers on the 5x8. Hopefully she will let me put in a larger gate, it's a great account.

Spent all day yesterday putting in some drainage pipe for a couple customers. Soil was damp and easy to work with. Anyone have a good tip on how to dig under sidewalks? We had to extend a sump pump line under a sidewalk and it was a PITA digging under it.

I used a backhoe to push a pipe under a sidewalk once.

Also a pressure washer will work. Just dig down and the blast away letting all the dirt and rocks wash back towards you.
