Any one have a 3 point sod cutting attachment for their tractor?
Looking to make horizontal blade to scrape off sod.

I started my attachment today. I know it won't cut sod so as to sell. So long as we can clear away turf so we can dig for drainage I'll be happy. The bottom plow makes a mess with the turf. I just hope we can reuse the turf we cut out again on site.

Who knows? I'm guessing it's worth a try. At the worst I'll lose $150.00. Who said I'm not a gambling man. lol

Here is a Demo of my Sod Cutter.

So I made a video of the sod cutter in action. Take a look and let me know if I went off the deep end.

good job on the first try. do you think changing the angle would help getting it started or maybe a little weight?

I think it's a weight thing because I put a cutting edge on the blade. I also tried different angels. My tractor has very little down pressure on the hitch. I have a job Monday removing a large area of turf to extend some beds. Can't wait to use it in the real world.
