Saw this mentioned in a New York Times article this morning. Sounds like it
would be an interesting tool to bury cables between a shack and a tower. or
radials. Anyone seen one of these in action? Almost sounds like they are
proprietary to Verizon: 

"Verizon has developed a special knife that uses pressurized air to slice
through lawns so fiber optic lines can be buried. The tool cuts through
grass, but does not break sprinkler pipes and gas lines."
