About ten years ago, I had a son that had just gotten out of the Marines
and asked me if I needed any work done.  I tasked him with digging such a
hole.  It was 4ft X 4ft by 6+ ft deep.  He dug it alone and hauled away the
dirt to another place on my farm by wheelbarrow and it took him right at 6

was with an electric company auger ;)
