For the most part I'd rather be in rock than dirt.


Explain. Why would you rather be in rock? Plus, if you get into shallow bedrock in my area, they have to go from driving to drilling. And that slows down progress.


Well yes sir.
Most rock I can drive pipe through. If not I can drill it quick enough. Apost drove 3 foot into rock will hold till the end of time. In our black clay you better be driving em 5 to 6 foot..
Edit to add...everyone is scared of rocks I can charge more

Thanks. Only a few times have they gotten into "shelf rock" on my farm. They drill. But goes faster when they can drive.

Till you drop half way off the ridge the shelf rock is only about 1-3 inches below the surface. And that doesn;t address the places where IT IS the surface.

Bed rock right on top of the ground is normal here. Farm Fence has seen it. I would much rather have exposed bedrock than 2 feet of dirt then rock. That's as rough as it gets

Fence's place was paved by the Good Lord. Only place there's any dirt is where he feeds cows. I guess everybody needs a mud hole. Lol
