The huge leach field required really was bad news. The digging in this area is terrible at best and would surely put plenty of wear and tear on our beloved backhoe. We’ve learned that properly sizing tools to a particular job saves both time and money in the long run. Besides, I love any opportunity to run different equipment.
I’d love to tell you that a huge excavator made quick work of our trench requirements but crappy digging is crappy digging. What would have taken several days with our backhoe we did accomplish in just one, very long day.
A dig like this is a one person job so Amy was on the backhoe running the material coming from trench through our screen so we had clean fill later to work with.
