I have no idea why people would trench when they could plow. What a mess.

I ran them for years and I could never see a Maxi sneaker being bad ass. No matter what mods you made.

No pulling here, it's all heavy clay soil's and rock's. I've seen pipe pulled one time in 25 year's and i was fixing a leak on that pipe within 3 month's. When i dug that pipe up it was all grooved up, the result of pulling with unseen rock's in the ground.

I looked into a plow to start with but honestly it was too much. I liked the idea of a plow and no one in my area has one, it would have been a good selling point I think. But it was not to be, so for now the trencher will due. I did however opt for a 4" chain so there would be less backfill. At any rate my new machine will be far superior to the rental options in my area....
