    Hi,

    I want to make a trench to plant young trees (they have about 6inches roots).
    I have about 2000 of those to plant so a subsoiler would help a lot.

    I've used a subsoiler on my 1023E (which I promptly renamed my F-Stuff Up Bar). They work great if you want a thin, semi-deep trench cut in soil. I used a Frontier PS10.

    It does a great job cutting straight through terracotta drainage pipe too.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I thought the ps10 was too long for the max height of the 3pth.

    How much clearance does it have from the ground when at max height?

    It was only about 3 or 4 inches off the ground with the 3PH all the way up.

    I have dug some nice trenches with my middlebuster on my 1026R. I bought it from Omni to use with their Transformer hitch

    Same here. The middlebuster has many more uses than the subsoiler, and if you really want a skinnier trench than what the middlebuster will make, just make a blade (or buy one) that mounts to the middlebuster frame like these: Subsoiler Points

    I bought a nortrac subsoiler from northern tool. About $100-125. I thought that the angle of the subsoiler would draw it into the ground but my soil was hard in spots. I welded a peice of flat stock to it to hang 8 suitcase weights on. With that kind of weight it will bury the ripper tooth all the way down 1-2'. I added a peice of conduit bent at a 90 deg angle lay in wire for an invisible dog fence. Worked great, maybe a little too deep. A friend used it to bury power wire 1' deep for 200' to his shed.

    I planted 2500 trees on my hunting land, the subsoiler probably would work if you had someone following you dropping the trees in. We used a special tree plow that 2 guys ride on behind a tractor. It was available from our local soil and water conservation district ( where I bought the trees as well). The tree plow had a set of corn planter style wheels on the back to close the furrow, something that the subsoiler wouldn't have.

    Tree plow behind the jd3010 but I think the 1025 would have pulled it.

    I can take pic of the subsoiler mods if you are interested.
    PAST: 13' X738, 87' 318, 72' 140 (wish I still had all of them)
    PRESENT: 1025R, H120 FEL, 60D MMM, 47" QH blower, Case 52" tiller, FIMCO Sprayer, Ballast Box, Subsoiler, springs & hooks
    FUTURE: Forks, Cab, Quick Hitch Blade
