My new trencher

Well new to me. It is an older dingo trencher attachment. I have about $300 in it so far. I had to buy newer hydraulic fittings, about $140 in diesel to pic it up, and I paid about $100 for it. What do you think? What do you think it is worth? Any suggestions on adding teeth?

Yeah I stole the dingo last winter for 5k w/ 475 hours. I bought another dingo a month ago on ebay... 220 w/ trencher for $3500... sold the dingo for $3400 and kept the trencher. I know it is not the end-all trencher, but it will be great for what I do.

We have one for our boxer and it has teeth on every section of the chain. We also have rock teeth on it.

We took out auger discharge off to. It didnt do much but clang around and make alot of racket. But we also have a trench cover up, so it makes it easier to clean trenches up with the auger off.
