So we needed to dig a trench at camp to run conduit for solar panel cables.  My dad gave me the idea to make a plow to pull behind the tractor.  I made this "middle buster" plow out of 8"x8"x1/2" angle some flat bar with some hole drilled in it  and a piece of 6" pipe to get the curl on the end.  I made it to be able to bolt onto my three point draw bar.  It worked out well and the trench was actually the same width as a spade shovel making it easy to clean the trench up if needed.



Here is video of it in some soft soil/clay.  It really ripped the sod up good.

     :thumbs:      Glad it worked out for you.   Even if it didn't it still looked like some good seat time.    :thumbs:      Rick
