This is a hurry-up build that I did 15 years ago when I needed a digger. It will go 17 feet down, will handle 24" bucket. I made a 12" bucket for tile repair work. The whole thing was scratch built with parts I picked out of scrap piles. This unit is pull-type, as I didn't have the time to make it self-propelled. It works well and will dig in hard ground/rocky stuff, and keep on digging. very strong for its size. Hope this gives an idea of what you can think up and build with old stuff.

That's awesome. There's been several places on the farm I could've used that
