I'm going to be digging up the top 6-8 inches of an 18 square yard plot (41"x48') of lawn grass (easement strip between sidewalk and road). The 3-4cuyd volume will probably load as 4-5cuyd. There is no place on the property to place it. It needs to go. It has a high clay content.
I could make 8-10 15mi round trips to a business that will take it for $20 per pickup truck load, which would be a lot of extra brute somethingoranother. I like digging with a shovel, but not the hauling and unloading etc.
What are the options to avoid pickup trucking it away myself, but still claim to be king of the neighborhood el cheapos??
It's easy access. Are there tiny excavators that could it, with that and the hauling for essentially the same price as getting hauled?
