    Always after....its inefficient to dig a hole twice. The way we do it is this...
    I flag they system & pull the zones. My guys dig the bores, we bore. They your done with the machine until its time to run the pulls down. You can get a typical 5-zone system pulled in 30-45min.

    Agreed, the puller will also displace the grade some if you run over a open trench

    what puller do you use?

    I can see 30-45min of accumulative. But for setup of zones and prep work a couple hours.

    I run over my pulls basically after each pull / the area it's done working it so I'm not wasting time later to do this.

    Exactly, crazy to dig a hole then drive thru it filling 1/2 back in.
