    Many people have said the same thing, more have changed their minds than have not though. The 18/24 volt vacs have lots of power, 15 to 20 min run time and there is no mess.
    i do see your viewpoint though

    Went back to the site today.

    The hole is the same and hasn't been touched.

    It's roughly 10' around and probably 14 or 15 deep. There is a lot of water in there. Look at the shovel on the left hand side sitting up.

    Crazy kid

    The locator guy told me he was 2' away from hitting the gas line and power line on one of the sides

    At first I thought .. why in the hell does this kid have so much stress he needs to dig a hole this big.

    As I met the wife today in this lake front 3 mill++ property with an easy 1 mill yacht chillin I found out why. The strive for absolute perfection from a parent to a kid .. I would have dug the hole too
