    It'd sure do the trick. Versions are in use around here all the time due to the construction boom. Quite common for trenching through asphalt for all the dang new traffic signals.

    People use excavators and backhoes out here if trenchers can't do it.

    Yeah, what I meant is there are no rocksaws.

    OK... now I get it. :)

    We're both up early this morning. My coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

    The rock saws are fairly common out here, though only a few of the larger landscape companies seem to be able to afford them.

    And when these toys don't do the job for cutting through the lava and basalt, then the blasting crews come out. The first time around blasting really took me by surprise. I was working at a site just across the street from where they were excavating for a new housing tract with my nose down into my work. The warning signals didn't mean anything to me until I heard the KABOOM. Man, I nearly jumped out of my skin, and then noticed the big yellow cloud rise up into the air. Oh yeah, that be cool! Now when I hear those warning "tones" I'm a bit more prepared.
