    Thanks man. The first guy I worked for doing irrigation showed me how to keep things neat but now I take it even further. I just love the reaction I get from clients when they see the destruction and come back in a few hours and it was like we were never there.

    What did you decide on?

    we have the mt, with the plow, trencher, bucket and boring attachments. i really like the boring and bucket (within limits). i think the trencher is under power and so is the plow. but i'm asking it to do a lot more than its designed for.

    i'm pushing for the 410, have been for 2 years now.

    410 is the way to go..

    My boss and I spent 2-3 hours this morning trying to bore under 2 walk ways. 5 total man hours... Those bores would of had us under there in minutes...

    I still don't get why the riser was not brought to sub-grade so the septic guys could easily pump it every few years. :dizzy:

    I didn't bring it to grade because it is unsightly and the septic guys won't go in there and clean it the way we did anyway. The cover is about 6" deep if I need to go back in and clean the silt again. It is the norm to have the covers below grade weather it be septic or dry well.
