You heavy equipment guys might appreciate this

Got done with my ripper set-up for my mini skid.

Works way better than I expected. I took into an adjacent field and was able to get it almost all the way down for maximum depth. The machine lugged a bit, but not as bad as I thought for a stupid 27 horse Kohler motor. One of these days I'm going to swap in a 33 horse generac and make the sucker hum.

If I got into to super compacted conditions I figured I could take off one or two of the rippers. The whole idea though is to break open the ground before I use a tiller.
