    Here are some pics of the plow. It came w/ a sod cutter(not pictured), a plow blade, and a chinese finger. I have never seen a blade like this one... it is able to swivel. Is this blade any good? I had to order some fittings to adapt to my dingo so I have not been able to try it out yet.

    looks good. when you say swivel, you mean from side to side? that looks pretty cool. hope it works out great for you. i love my dingo plow. works great on residentials. i would like to ad a track dingo in the future just for the plow.

    Your plow blade appears to be on upside down.

    The same as any other small plow?

    Preripping helps to locate large roots and break up rocky soil.

    I only have to pull once with my large plow.

    Remember, even plowing twice is faster than trenching once and you don't have to backfill.

    My plow will average around 50 feet per minute.

    I'd like to see you trench 50 feet 14" deep and lay a pipe and backfill it in a minute :)

    Lawnsworks: You are going to want to add about 6" of chain between the chinese finger and the plow blade and a swiveling shackel to help absorb vibration. Before I did that I had a lot of trouble with the grips pulling off the pipe. We also use your standard carabeaner to connect it, Quick and easy.
