I have a friend who works for the power company where I'm working. He was telling me about two tools that are used in conjunction with one another to hand dig holes for power pools when access is restricted for a drill rig. Apparently sometimes they have to go up to eleven feet deep for larger diameter poles.
Anyway, one of the tools is basically a long handled spade and the other is a tool that can scoop up what the spade breaks apart. I've never actually seen these items in use but I'm wondering if anyone here has and knows where to find them, online or otherwise. Also, if there's more than one option, any recommendations...?
I have some deep holes for piers, 18" in diameter that I need to clean out and they're fairly inaccessible to redrilling.
