    Not for me. Digging anything other than to replace a turf head can involve jackhammers or backhoes. Bring that kid to Hawaii and I can probably make it so he will never touch a shovel voluntarily again.

    Strange, we use them for digging footings under cabins, cleaning valve boxes out, post holes, excavating for leak repair, etc.

    It took a while to get the oldtimers to give er a try but once they see how much easier and cleaner a shop vac is, they are sold.

    Last I knew, OSHA does not regulate the activities of teens in their yards.

    :clapping:thanks, and it works quite well, but have to kinda comb thru the grass to keep getting granules down deep in the turf. it does take a while to get enough out to not cause a burn, etc

    Right now I would enjoy being a monkey on a shovel, just digging and digging and digging. The office and phone and emailing and scheduling really gets to me right now.
    Low of 22 the other night had my phone ringing off the hook. Thought it was going to melt or sort out.
