    I think I may be missing something... my first thought was...Why? Quickly followed by...Broken pipe.

    I have both vib. plow and trencher attachments for the mini-skid. I had old plow blade fitted with a foot and use that to tamp down trenches. Works well, and I can control the impact pretty good.

    I spent a lot of time trying to find a solution to the trench issue; I would have bought that attachment you found if it'd been available when I was in need.

    Never had a use for one. Plow the pipe in. If and when I did trench I leave it up to the landscapers to repair the ditch.

    I guess I am just missing something here?

    What specific purpose are you going to use this new unit for and how often? I am NOT trying to be a smart a$$, so please do not see this question in that way.

    It does not appear to be a cheap attachment, so it should be able to pay for itself over time.
