I'm looking for something like an EZ trench, except in a pull behind. something like a 2~3" wide x 5~7" deep trench for conduit, pvc, etc.

Any such animal?

Thanks.

I don't see why you couldn't use a single bottom garden plow, maybe modify it a little bit if you want.

This is what we use to install the underground wire for our dog fence, if you added a coulter back to the front it might cut deep enough for a irrigation line.

the cutter on this is a piece of angel iron that was heated and bent and then the corner is sharpened.

Well my first post did not work? But Chuck is onto something. A Cultivator knife or Shoe would get you down the 7" your looking for if attatched to the knife section he is using. The Depth control wheel might be needed to keep it from digging to China?
The Kunz Till-Ease 543 is a cool piece of equipment, that is pricey but I want to build something simular to use in place of a conventional plow.
The pictures show the shoe options, and the shoes are available at the local Farm Supply store.

Hey guys, long time since I posted but I wanted you all to know that your idea worked & worked rather well. I have some extra 3/4" plate that I cut & contoured (yes, I cut it with a Milwaukee circular saw, straight cuts) & welded a couple little pieces of angle at the bottom of the ripper. That part is absolutely necessary to keep the thing in the ground else it picks up the rear end on after a few feet & you lose traction.


Thanks!
