Excavating basement by hand to increase the utility room size. We did this by hand with the aid of a half inch Black and Decker drill, a boat winch, a hand cart purchased at Princess Auto and a ramp. We managed to remove about 15 or 20 cubic yards of dirt in two days. Of course the little John Deere Utility Tractor came in handy to move the dirt away from the house. I welded a nut on the winch where the handle goes and put a socket on the drill. Most of my cellar was just crawl space so our excavation increased the usable space by a substancial amount.
