Here is a video of my Vermeer M147A.  It is a Cub Cadet 149 base.  Vermeer purchased the stripped down cub cadet 147's and 149's from IH and modified them with a small trencher.

That is cool. Just need a blade on it to cover the ditch. Thanks!

It works great in sand!  Luckily the soil around here is pretty loose.  Harder soils would be nicer so the trench would not cave in so easy, but the cork screws do a nice job of moving the soil to the sides.  The cylinder on the side strapped to the tractor is for lifting the plow which I have off currently.
