underground cable, irrigation heads

Just getting started with aeration. Does anyone have problems with cutting the underground TV cable or damaging irrigation heads with ride on aerators? Any comments appreciated.

Make the home owner flag all irrigation heads and have them be responsible if they didn't mark one.

Yes very realistic they could be damaged. I guess the best thing to do would be to make a "one call" to mark utility lines to relieve yourself of responsibility. The customer shall be responsible for marking heads. TV and communication cables can be VERY shallow. Make it very clear you will not be responsible for damage unless all the above is done.

Call your cable company and discuss it in general with them in advance. You can be sure--neither the customer nor the cable company wants that cable cut. I am pretty sure the cable company charges big bucks to fix it.

My neighbors across the street snagged theirs with a roto-tiller few years back--it wasn't pretty.

If you call and have the lines marked it's not your problem if you hit it.

I was putting a fence post in in heavy clay. I went right through my cable line without feeling it.. I was 3 ft from where he marked it lol
