    I was pulling some pipe today and the blade hit something and banged around a bit so I went back to check and my foot sunk in about 8". we dug it up and found that the cesspool cover had shattered. So I had to take an hour to go to the cement plant to get a new one. So it turned an otherwise good day into a sh!tty one.

    In the PNW plastic risers to grade are required to avoid just such fun! :rolleyes:

    Lucky that you didn't sink in 8 FEET! Or have the machine fall in.

    Something is very wrong if the water level is right up to the lid.
