        What are You talking about? An Ames true temper long handle shovel measures 53 1/2" Handle looks about 3" proud of ditch. My hoe has a 24" bucket ,a little more ARSE ROOM. I believe He has a 12" one there. NO BIGGEE ON 50" DEPTH WITH THAT SOIL
        I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

          Was just wondering, the depth is not obvious from the pic. Looking more closely I can see the trench is not that deep at all, I guess frost going deep and freezing the line in not a worry where you are.
          Where I am a service will typically be minimum of 8 feet and the requirement is any trench over 5 feet requires cutting back the walls to maintain a 5 foot wall. The cutback will be at a 45 degree angle in loose soil and 30 degree in hard compact soil. If cutback is not practical then temporary protective structures are to be built to protect against sloughing of the sides and being buried alive. Less depth than 5 feet does not require this.

            The frost line around here is 4ft. The tractor belongs to an independent excavator we hire out for such jobs. They bid the excavation, line hook up etc. We do the inside work.

              So, the excavation contractor is also a licensed plumbing contractor?

              The water service and "line hook up" is the plumbers work in IL.

                You bet! We have a contractor's license as well as the plumbing/excavation company. We even use them on sewer line work.
