I guess I lucked out! When I was getting ready to install my new tower (90ft
Rohn 45G) I had a son that had just gotten out of the Marine Corps and
wanted to earn a few extra bucks! I pointed him in the right direction,
told him that I wanted the hole 4ft x 4ft and over his head! He never even
flinched <G>! Guess the Marines had taught him well because in less than 4
hours, he had a perfect hole dug and had also hauled away all of the dirt
via wheel-barrel! All this with just a spade, shovel and 3-pound coffee can!
BTW, he hit water at the 7ft level so everything here in Iowa is well grounded.
