Tile plow

I needed to run power to my chicken coops. It was suggested to just run the wire inside of 3/4" water line. I did not need it very deep in the ground. So I made a tile plow attachment for the back of my 1025. With me (200#) sitting on the back feeding line in ground it worked pretty well.

What a way to show off your lack of rocks. 馃槢 Around here, every trenching project ends up looking like I'm putting in an irrigation canal by the time I get the subsurface boulders pulled out.

I did the same thing for driveway lights, only I put in direct bury cable.

That's how it's done. I've put miles in that way. The other thing you can do is put a tee on the end and attach it to the base of the subsoiler, lay the pipe out and pull it in. You can do it alone that way.

I bought a set up like that and it worked great (could not set on it). I wished I would have made one, but I was in a hurry.

Nice Teamwork.......though your in the wrong seat.

How much waste on the starting end ...or did it not drag once you got going?

Did you tie off starting end?

I did the same for direct burial ethernet cable to my shed and power out to my flagpole. Leaves a bit of a mess, but sure beats a shovel.

I've seen some where a coulter or disk was put just ahead of the subsoiler. This sliced the sod, which prevented the subsoiler from tearing it up in chunks.

I left it a foot past the electrical box just in case. It did not pull the line at all once we got rolling. I was actually pushing the line into the ground to make sure it stayed down. Once we were rolling we covered 80feet in under 5 minutes.

Hey that thing is pretty cool, didn't know such an implement existed!
That is really cool! I had not heard of a tile plow so I looked it up. Those are pretty slick, too, but your adaptation of the principle is genius.
