    I'm coming up there next week to do a product demo.

    I need to secure an auger unit with a 9" blade in case we have to do some pre-drilling...

    The rental places are all saying "no dice"

    Anyone?

    TIA,

    Where at specifically? And forgive my ignorance - what exactly do you need to drill? Is this something that would normally be mounted on a tractor/bobcat/etc or like a 2-person hand-held type thing?

    What rental places did you try?

    I know quite a few builders/contractors, but it depends if you're going to be close to any of them. You could be 2-1/2 driving hours away from me and still be 'in the Seattle area'.

    Thanks guys.

    We'll be on the N end of town, on I-5 btwn 175th and 205th - looks like they call that the Richmond Highlands area?

    I MAY need to pre-drill the soil on a jobsite if our foundation meets refusal.

    My company has helical, torque-driven foundations that we will be demo'ing for a contractor up there.

    The soil blow counts are a little high - 50/9, so I want to be able to pre-drill if I have to.

    So I'd want to be able to drill that 9" auger down about 10 feet...

    Hertz Equipment had a 9" auger on a Bobcat, but I need two extensions to get it 9 feet down...

    e-rock, any of your friends up for this?

    Sorry -

    I don't know anybody doing any work over there. Or anyone with the ability to go down 10 feet for that matter.

    I will ask around and see what I can find out about rental places that may be able to hook you up. I'll let you know if I find anything out.

    Good luck,
    Eric
