    my concerns besides the lack of weight for digging would be getting the clay to fall out of the smaller buckets. i have a 12' bucket i rarely use because the clay hangs up in it too much.

    didn't think about that. they've ordered one for my to try out, I told them a 8" bucket because I'll mostly use it for tree holes and 6" drain lines... but I figured if i like it I'd get another bucket. I'll have it in a couple of weeks and will of course shoot some pics and review. just wished someone else had one so I knew what I was getting into.
