    Have any of you plowed through asplalt before? I ask becuse there are times when my ability to bore is limited. If they are going to re tar soon anyway we have cut the tar and buried, but its a pain. On guy I talked to said that he pulles trough tar with his dingo, just not sure about that one....

    I guess you could but you would need to torch it up a bit to soften it up.

    I would still much rather break it first

    A Ditch Witch 410SX will go through asphalt pretty easily if it's not too thick. You just have to run it slow like I see a lot of novice operators doing.
