Kind of a neat machine. Crew is drilling under a couple of nearby creeks for a water line. Haven't talked to them, but I did glance at the machine from a distance while they were gone.

Did a quick search and found a few pictures of various machines and this:

I only see three or four guys here and they're using something about like this:

Punching right through the turf, no trench.

Pipe extends up to the surface at both ends of another one they did down the road. I'm guessing another contractor will be in to dig down to the water lines and make the connections.
