My home irrigation system has a PVC water pipe that runs under a driveway apron that is about 15 ft wide. Somewhere along that 15 ft length, under the driveway, this pipe is leaking. I want to replace it with a steel pipe to avoid this happening again. Since the Rear PTO of my JD 1025 spins parallel to the ground, I was wondering if there is some kind of parallel-to-the-ground auger that I could fit on this PTO to cut a path under the driveway apron for this steel pipe? Anybody have experience with that?
In the alternative, I am thinking about the possibility of using my Artillian Forks, or one thereof, to push the steel pipe underneath the driveway apron, assuming I can get a stable-enough connection between the pipe and the Fork to take full advantage of the power of the tractor.
I know there's a lot of suggestions on The Web about using a water hose forcefully squirting water to cut a path for this pipe underneath this concrete, but I'd like to avoid that mess if possible.
Does anybody have any experience in this kind of chore? Any suggestions appreciated.
