    This will take the better part of a day and only look half as good

    I know. Seems like I'm missing something but nobody has them for rent here. At least that I've found yet. I've got emails in to Ditch Witch. Maybe they can help locate.

    I'm guessing by the time you rent 2 machines and put in all the time/labor seems you might come out ahead hiring an irrigation company, plus a better end result. Keep your guys busy by having them onsite and help in any way they can and let them observe how a plow works so maybe in the right situation in the future they will be familiar with it.

    This might be key. For standard irrigation work, there isn't much justification for burying the sprinkler zone pipes a foot-and-a-half down, so the rental equipment wouldn't need that capability.

    I hired an irrigation company to come out to my residence last summer. All they did was pull. They pulled 4000 ft of 1inch poly, and 500 ft of direct bury 14-2 wire. Took about 5 hours total. I timed him, a 200ft run took like 5 min.

    Got a quote back of $495 to show up and $95/hour per man. Said they would send 2 men and expected no more than 2hrs. Seems high. We use $175,000 bucket trucks and show up at an hour travel and less than that per hour. I know the 410 is expensive but its not like Im renting it.
