Another method is reversing the leg direction and putting it against the face, in soft ground that plug's the drill steel a bit with holes on its perimeter would be chosen.
Drilling and Blasting is the controlled use of explosives and other methods such as gas pressure blasting pyrotechnics, to break rock for excavation. It is practiced most often in mining, quarrying and civil engineering such as dam or road construction. The result of rock blasting is often known as a rock cut. Higher velocity explosives are used for relatively hard rock in order to shatter
