My youngest (14) spent most of one day doing a grand job digging out... the digging is all finished now, thankfully all I managed to dig up was a flowerpot Oh and just over 60 tons (7 skips) of soil, concrete and other garb.Wow would love a go in the digger!:lol:
Thats a hell of alot What do they cost a day?Oh and just over 60 tons (7 skips) of soil, concrete and other garb.
Honestly you need to hire one of these mini jcb's at some point in your life, even if it's to dig a hole then fill it in then maybe dig another hole they rock just like a boys toy is supposed to
When I went to SpeedyHire they quoted £180 for the weekend or £220 for the week, I'm glad I took it for a week, I had to take it for another week after the slab was done.Thats a hell of alot What do they cost a day?
SpeedyHire let me have one with no questions, 5 mins getting used to it and off I went, luckily i kind of knew where the mains elec, water and gas ran in so I was not to concerned with hitting anything, I nearly filled my pants however as I noticed I had snagged a blue water pipe :wow: fortunatly it was an offcut that had been buried.you were helluva lucky boy.....in 2 ways...when we did our monobloc we werent allowed to hire one as no one would hire it out to you....and secondly and more importantly....the live main supply to the house was only a few inches below the surface before we started and luckily we were diging it out with a spade and cleared the way around it ...if we had been using the digger it would have knocked the supply out to quite a few houses.
nice job thou.
