So after returning the Ditch Witch I still had about 100 feet of trench to hand dig. I had some little helpers to assist in cutting through the top 15 inches.
One was a little Angry Bird:).
However, after several hours of work we only cut through several inches of the top soil.
So, I had to go back to plan A.
But when I went back to the rental place the Witch was gone. All they had was the Bobcat. So I had to make do.
Unfortunately I did not get any pics of the BC working. I can tell you that I did not like it as much as the Ditch Witch. Surprisingly, it did not have the power the DW had.
Once I returned the Bobcat, I ran over to my friends and borrowed his tractor to drill some post holes.
I used Quikcrete’s Post Mix to set my posts.
This post is for the “Ranch Style Main” setup coming of the pole.
These two hold the house main!
Still even with the Bobcat trenching and John Deer Post Hole Digger, There is plenty of digging.
(Even the surgeon came over to help:)
More to follow…..
