Hoo boy!  I went through that too...  Thought I was a big shot that
couldn't dig 3 holes..  I had a backhoe out here for another project and
asked him to dig the holes...  $1,200. bucks worth of concrete later, I
had tower bases!  Boy, will I ever dig in the future!  Those scoops are
ok for width, but the hole ends up WAY too long!
