Piping under asphalt

Just wondering whats the best way to get 2" pipes under asphalt driveway?

Emailed a boring company (we-bore-it) and they wanted $23/ft which wouldve made an install $2500 for boring.

We're in Deltona FL, just north of Sanford FL

Driveway is about 12 feet wide, but I have to go under 4 different times. (Part of the driveway is a circle, so I have to get some pipe into that middle area and continue through)

Depending on the soil and the size of the machine, you can push up to 4" steel pipe without any problem. Make sure you have a chain welded to the pipe so you can pull it back out. Shoot I've posted pics pushing 2" sched 40 pvc unde 4' sidewalks with a 3,000 lb mini ex on the forum before. Last year about May I did. I think.

Why four different times? Show us a map, we will come up with a better idea, like one bore with multiple pipes inside.

Pushed this sideways with the mini the other day







Depends on the soil and the size of the machine but it can be done.
811 first though.

I'm surprised you're so insensitive Boots. They're called little people.
