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.

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.

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.

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.
