    is it always such a chore to connect the pipe to the blade, it seemed to take an extra long time.

    Thats funny we keep duct tape on the parking break too. Also pulled one of those back panel bolts and put it thru a hammer holster to hold the hammer on the machine.

    That is a King Grip holding the pipe. They do not let go. More trouble than a chain loop, or the Chinese mesh grip, but a minimum of soil disturbance.

    Using a King Grip shows the influence of having used a Pipe Piper, because their blade is so 'active' that a Chinese grip won't work.

    I had only used the chinese mesh grip when installing. Always worked well except in some clays. But sometimes the pipe would just pull apart during a pull in clay anyway.
