Re-planted into new hole dug out earlier with mini hoe. Moved 17 bushes which only took 20 minutes including digging new holes.

Digging very large and deep hole to bury large cement slab (same size as coffin). Slab was so heavy I had to push with forks into the hole.

Cutting down side hill for new garage. Cut down to 10 feet below top of hill, which was about maximum reach for mini hoe. Used the bucket to rip downwards, which worked very well.
