    The pool job I used 10' sticks of 1" grey PVC for high voltage. The utility poly is great if you can find it. It's the same stuff as verizon uses. It is not UL listed for conduit so legally you would have to use a UF cable inside but it is much easier than PVC. It's better than irrigation poly because when some landscaper digs it up he thinks twice about hacking at it with a spade because it's bright orange.

    Its absolutly no different from pulling sprinkler pipe , bell ends go to the back , glue and twist the pipe , and pull , use a chinese finger . You can pull the pipe right away . i pull for 5 or 6 electricians , they love the plow . As far as the wire , under 100 ft , fish tape , over 100 ft the string asd shop vac work as long as you up size the string to a small rope and use some lube .

    I have a 36" blade that came with my DW 350SX. Same mounting holes as a 410 or even a 250. I never tried to use it, way too much blade for those machines.
