1. Smaller pilot bits make more accurate holes, but use a larger pilot bit in sticky clay conditions. 2. Bore slowly! Do not try to push the machine too hard. Use the hand winch and let the bit do the work. Pushing too hard can get you stuck and cause the stem to divert off path. 3. Make sure the entrance trench is long enough for the drill stem to flex down to the depth of the bore without binding the stem. 4. Do not advance the bit into the bore until you have a steady constant water flow out the bit. 5. When using the surface boring guide, make sure it is as close to the start of the bore as possible and is firmly secured and does not move. 6. Do not bore past your destination. Measure the length of the bore first and only bore that far. SEE VIDEO
1. Honda engine dies after boring- The Honda power units must stay completly full of oil or the oil alert system will kick in and kill the engine. 2. Pilot bit gets stuck- Don't bore to quickly and swab the hole often.Use a larger pilot bit in sticky clay. If you get a kink in your garden hose while advancing the machine forward, your water supply will shut off and you will get stuck- monitor your water pressure gauge and make sure the pressure doesn't drop, likewise if the pressure goes way up that means you are boring to quickly and may be clogging the pilot bit water holes. 3. Won't start- There are 2 on/off switches(on the motor and on the handle)make sure both are on. Top the engine off with oil.Gas? 4. Hole caves in in sand or loose soils- Use the "swivel attachment" to pull back your installation while back reaming back to the destination.Call for details.
