Attachment for burying cable

Recommended Posts

BDSchmidt
Has anyone created an attachment for the rear end of a Sovereign style tractor that will dig a trench of sorts and bury cable? I have seen pictures of a couple that have been homemade but they were on three point hitches. It doesn't seem like it would be that hard. I'm only looking at getting down 6-8 inches or so and top soil by me is pretty soft. I want to bury cable TV wire, invisible fence wire, maybe some irrigation pipe. Just wondering if someone has already done this so I wouldn't have to start from scratch on the design. Thanks for any input!

I made one using the coulter from a Brinley plow. it worked for my one time deal. But coulter bent when I changed directions. One from a farm plow or disc would work much better I put a tube behind the coulter to put cable in ground

Check this out---planning also to run power to my goat shack and figured to fab something like this for my HB212 with hydro lift. I think this would be easy to make and easy for Alice to go the 18" deep. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ntj0YLrcng&feature=related

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
