    I had to do a double take on this one, found this on a TX irrigation co's website..

    I would have given up after 1 hour god forbid 2 hrs... I would have bored a new hole!!

    I also see a brand new shovel in the picture, hence the label hasnt even worn off. Not a good sign of a seasoned irrigator.
    You can learn alot by looking at a mans shovel.

    That's how I sometimes felt when jetting a pipe under a sidewalk, where tree roots were involved.

    I always take the D-Handle off those shovels and put a straight wood handle on..

    I like me a D-handle, at least for wood. Good for tight quarters.

    I also like the short D handle for tight quarters.

    That kid's a trooper! :clapping:

    I just happen to be sitting in on an OSHA safety seminar tomorrow. This pic is wonderful. :laugh:

    I agree on the tight quarters but im not a fan of the jarring you get
    when your beating you shovel on some rock hard dirt.

    That's why they make picks and mattocks and gloves.
