    I have a ditch witch drill a fairly small one 920 series but it is too big for most of my jobs in the city, we use it when we get out to jobs with 300 foot lines and then I want to know everything before I bid. I do blind sweeps I bust out the Ground penetrating radar and put a lot of hours into it. I have never hit anything and would like to keep my record intact but plastic is used more and more and I know the day I slack off on the locates is the day I go down.

    You should talk to some horizontal bore forums and see what they have to say.
