Ok well I was talking to a guy today and he was complaining about getting a mini ex from RSC rental and he said they lied to him, Well naturally I asked how? he said that on the paper work it stated that the machine had 9foot of reach and he had dug a 7 foot deep hole (maybe deeper) and he couldnt reach the bottom. I said well just because it has 9 foot of reach doesnt mean it will dig 9 foot deep. he said well how deep will it dig then? I said well apparently if you couldnt reach the bottom of a 7 foot deep hole than it has a max digging depth of right at or under 7 feet. His reply was Oh, well thats bulls#it, Your lying, if it has nine foot of reach then it should dig nine foot deep. So was I right? I think I am right I just want to make total sure and go off of just what I think.. Thanks..
