    Subsoiler

    Im looking into a subsoiler. We have a very packed area that needs to be striped and tilled, then replanted with grass. Was woundering if running a subsoiler first would be the first pass before the tiller. I think there were a lot of critters about in the past. Very bumpy and seveal low spots. It would be a shame if I had to get more toys for my new toy!

    A subsoiler works best when the ground is dry. Will your low spots every dry up?

    I have some packed ground that is very heavy and it can stop my 4520 with R-1's in its tracks if I have the subsoiler all the way down. Is this heavy clay?

    I have a subsoiler for my 1026 and it works great. I use mine to break up soil before using the loader to remove it.

    Were new to northern OH so I dont know what type of soil we have, never broke ground yet. The low spots dry out as far as we can tell. Last rain they filled but went down slow, very wet now with spring rain on the way We were told that the ground had drain pipe, havent found them as of yet.

    Talking about subsoiler.
    I plan to use one prior to plowing my garden. I used to do the garden with a walk behind rotor tiller. The max depth I could get with this was six inches. I have the garden plot now at the same site for almost 30 years, and now that I have a tractor that can do such things, I want to rip the ground open and use my new plow to turn it over deep to soften everything up.

    I also plan to use the subsoiler and a middle buster to create a ditch to put sewer and water in for my motorhome. I want to create a full hook up for it, and to be able to use it as visitors quarters when not in use. I feel that the subsoiler and middle buster can create a ditch deep enough for mild frost protection of the liquid lines.

    Has anybody ever made a ditch like this with those appliances?

    It's fairly straightforward cutting in a shallow ditch with a middle buster, just proceed as you would imagine, it may take a couple of passes but you'll get there. You might think about pulling in your waterline and conduit by attaching it to your subsoiler and going nice and slow. I've never done this but have seen it done and I think if you check everythingattachments.com they have a video demonstrating it in the subsoiler section. It worked really well in the application I saw (1" waterline).
    I might add, first pass to break ground then follow your cut to pull in the line, have a buddy on hand to feed the line, it was easy.

    Yes I used one to put in a field drain tile by the house to drain water away. It does take several passes.
