    I used to get $125 hr for my single axles plowing for a local municipality. I never understood why they pay so cheap. I do better on residentials with pickups. But its better to keep the trucks and employees busy then have the trucks sit for a couple months.

    Just our DitchWitch...I've never used the mini bobcat for it...but hear it's possible...just never seen one in action! We use the mini for misc stuff...doing stone under decks...going places too tight for a full sized Bobcat. It doesn't get a ton of use...but is handy to have around...

    Yeah, its possible, we do it with a full size bobcat :weightlifter: Is the ditch witch just a vibratory plow?

    That sucks about your truck but atleast you were okay..

    Never seen a vibratory plow used for anything other than phone, cable and gas.. Next time we do an irrigation, if we use a bobcat with trencher, I'll get some pic's and video for ya. A trencher is a bitc# to use though, to much shoveling. If it was my choice we'd just use a mini excavator...
