Outdoor Lighting Cable Burying Machine?

I have been in the landscape lighting business for a long time and can't find a good machine to bury 12v cable 6" deep, without ripping up the lawn. We have always done it by hand, which is getting old. All the rotary machines seem to make a big mess.
Any ideas?

I know you can get an attachment for a sod cutter that pulls and buries a wire, not 6" deep though maybe 3-4", ryan makes one.

I have a Vermeer LM11 that works great. I can bury up to 12" deep in 2" increments. It is on tracks and slits the ground with a reciprocating knife as it places the cable. LineWard also makes a unit that does the same.
