Here is the opposite of the big backhoe featured in this post. This past week my water line was dug up by this diminutive backhoe.

Whereas the big one would move a lot of dirt with every scoop of the bucket, this one is more of a precision instrument. The operator was carefully following the old line, avoiding a gas line, but not so fortunate with a second water line running up to the landlord's house (it being pvc, it didn't show up on the finder). It almost looked like a toy, kind of comical in comparison to the big boy toy.. But it sure beats digging by hand.

I could use a thing like that in my yard!
