I need to rent one as well. Need to dig trenches for a 5 ton geo theramal field. Need one big enough to use a wide bucket and get down 6 feet.

Around here Home Depot rents little Kubota TLBs with trailers that can be towed behind an average SUV. A friend rented one and I thought it would be totally useless but it actually worked very well and was a lot more powerful than I thought it would be. It would dig about 6 feet and worked fast. Best part is no float fees and it was cheap for the weekend.

It is always good to have friends with a backhoe on hand. Not always the best idea to rent one to move dirt.

Best way to deal with the remnants of a situation gone awry.

Call your favorite well driller and have vertical loops installed.

Thats very expensive here since bedrock is less than 10ft down.

Wells are typically only used where you cannot go deep enough with trenches or the home owner doesn't have sufficient real estate for a field. Neither are a problem here. Backhoes are considerably cheaper than $700k well drilling rigs.

But the trench method is cheaper and can be installed by the homeowner:

yep cheaper, diy, just as effective as expensive deep wells, and closed loop is simply the best where available

If you have space I guess it is a non issue, I'm biased but vertical loops are more efficient. Mini excavator is perfect for these, we have done these als.

mild use

Jason - here in NC we have something called Rain and Heavy Down pours where water comes from the sky and not from Mr. Mullhulan and draining the good old Colorado dry.

Hee hee. I currently have some run off issues as I am on the down slope of a street. The water currenly bypassess my front trench (which has filled up with dirt over the last 30 years) proceeds down my drive way and washes part of my property into a nerby feeder creek not to mention the feeder creek is not as deep as it once was. So I need to move some dirt around before all of my side yard ends up where the feeder creek.

Just minor property stuff.

JL,
Home depot around here does not get that heavy into equipment. The biggest thing they have for outdoor is maybe a walk behind bushhog or a 3 inch chipper. I wish they would rent something bigger.

I can get a mini with a blade and a bucket for around $250 a day but was trying to get something bigger and faster or pay someone 250 to do the work that already has the backhoe.

be careful what you do to the streams esp if youve pissed off your neighbor.
