    Thinking of buying a pt2460 to dig footings for a large steel building. Would this be a wise choice for such a large job?

    I have dug several trenches that were 4' down in clay/shale soil that were 150' plus in length. And that was with a mini hoe. So it is very doable. Obviously, you should not buy a PT2460 if that was all you wanted it for though.

    While you might want to elaborate on what you mean by large, i.e. what size, and how deep the footings need to be, I agree with Ken, if this is the only task, there may be better choices out there. e.g. I know someone who bought a used telephone company truck, used it's large auger and put in piers very quickly, but he was only doing 30" diameter piers, and he had a bulldozer to level the building pad first.

    All the best,

    If that is all you are going to use it for, I would rent a mini excavator for a few days, or a weekend.
