I have been looking for a trencher for a while and have been contemplating the eztrencher. However I was looking for feed back on how well it cuts a trench in clay soil? wet, dry, damp. I am looking for a economical form of trencher since I do not want to dump alot of money into the irrigation side quite yet. I also do not have alot of room to store a large trencher when I am not using it. A little info on my plans. 1. do irrigation in early spring before the grass season starts. wet to damp soil at this time 2. do irrigation during the summer burn off when most lawns are not growing as much because of the lack of H2O. 3. do irrigation during late fall after leaves and winter. dry to very wet soil I plan mainly on new installs, with some repair also. When I say new installs I mean with out grass on new construction graded dirt or fill. I also will do new installs on grassed areas also for people wanting sprinkler systems in existing turf. Now we have no frost line. at max in winter during a heavy freeze you will see maybe a 2" freeze at most so going deeper than 8-12" is no concern. Give me your take on this. Thanks.
