    That's pretty slick. It reminds me of the transplanter I used to use on the farm to plant the tomatoes that were stated in the green house. Just bigger. What pushes the dirt back in the trench?

    Ridger discs. I have posted stills before. I'll see if I can dig a close up, out.

    Pretty simple concept. The mainline is trenched after the laterals are installed. They'll be finished with the lats today. About fourty/fifty acres.
