Looks cool, never seen it in person though, my question would be, how far does it blow the spoils away?? You need them pretty close to the ditch to backfill

I think you use a vac to get rid of the loose dirt. I'd just have one of my guys do it the ol fashioned way with a shovel and a wheelbarrow.

Something like that is used to set poles in mud and on the beach after you bore the hole with the truck.

Those are great for potholing where you have a vac truck and a compressor trailer.

Yeh I saw a Con-Ed crew move like 30 yards of dirt once in 10 minutes with one of thse and a vac truck. It was amazing. It's why I want to buy it. Even if I only use it a couple times a year.

I just checked out some demos on You Tube. Looks pretty cool, but you will also have to have a vac truck and large air compressor.
