[TowerTalk] Fwd: Digging Hole

I saw someone using a arbor. There are rather large sizes available. I  don't 
remember who used it for digging all holes for his antenna. I think it was  
on the Heights Tower's site. Unless the holes has to be square but can be round 
 that may be the way to go.

Some backhoes( larger ones only I think) have a hydraulic  telescoping arm on 
the outer limb.  This allows the backhoe boom end  to be positioned at the 
center of the hole to be dug and the outer arm can  use its telescoping 
member to go straight down to dig the dirt.
Without  this feature the outer arm is at an angle that makes it difficult to 
get  the dirt out without bumping into the side of hole.
I would ask the backhoe  excavator to use this type.

I just did this used a  small backhoe 12" bucket 4.7x4.7x5.6 got difficult 
the last 2.5ft. down  3.5x7 is going to be tough not a lot of room to move 
around in. You might  want to go bigger just for ease.Good luck N1KGP  Martin
