Thanks

I am looking forward to it. I have done irrigation repairs for the last six years as an add on service for the total home maintenance business. But with the ongoing drought the irrigation side of things has really blossomed. I turned down a lot of install work last year due to the hassel of renting equipement and finding qualified labor. I have decided to streamline and do just irrigation. Irrigation work has been really good here as well. I truely believe this is the right move. Thanks again for the input.

Oh, and so as not to offend the O.P. I bought a new trencher last year. Except I did not buy Toro.... I didn't even know that Toro makes trenchers. I bought a Ditch Witch..... in 35 years this is only our third Ditch Witch walk behind. She's a badass digging machine.....

so far so good

Yes that is the back fill blade. I is super easy to attach. It is really cold here today so I only played with it for a bit. But it seams to work pretty good. Definitely better than doing it with a hoe. Lol. I think some raking would still be in order after use to finish the grade.

Will it push as much as my backfill blade?

be careful what you wish for

I'm going to revisit the unanswered question I posed about a Pipe Piper I found on eBay, that I was sure was going to have possible operation issues. The question was, "What's wrong with this machine, compared to it's factory-original configuration?"













the memory-jogging picture was this



I'll start the Jeopardy clock rolling.......
