That's Cool Simple Idea! That would male a good trencher for laying cable or electric conduit too. The adjustable hieght is great. I may have to steal that Idea From You.

Used it to dig a small trench for the electric dog fence last year , it's just an old backhoe tooth weld to a 2 x 2 x 1/4" tube

great tool to have
just had a friend sub soil my garden and also made him rip to the corner of my yard (low point) to help drain the garden.
last time he did my garden he did not rip to the corner of my yard (five years ago) and the garden did not want to dry out.
so just don't do the garden without ripping to a lower point away from the garden or you can end up with a wet garden.

That is a nice simple idea.. the best kind. Well done! How deep can you pull it? I was thinking about making a small ripper out of anhydrous knives. My soil gets very tight after heavy rains. ...Greg

Use a different mounting with a hinge bolt & a softer shear bolt. When you hit something the soft bolt shears off (hopefully), allowing the arm to swing back! ~~ grnspot

The shear bolt has to be small enough & soft enough to shear when needed! ~~ grnspot
