    Harv, I sometimes turn my scarifiers upside down to get them completely up out of the way when I don't want to use them at all. When they are turned down, they just have the two notches, so you can set them to dig shallow or deep, but in either notch, they will be digging at least a little unless you have the blade tilted back.

    For anchors you could use mobile home anchors they spin into the ground like an auger and use strap metal to go over the pipe to hold it in place.

    You should always tie your bags that you lay down with rebar. It's a shame sometimes that the threads get so long but I suggested this last week to Glenn guess it got lost in all the other replies--But back to the task at hand, #4 should work fine, about every 8" across the head wall. The rebar will make the bags one unit instead of a munch of single bags. Also when water force is applied in the form of storm runoff it gives equal bearing of all bags instead of a few taking the brunt of the force.

    Gordon -

    Actually, I do recall your post about using rebar to tie the bags together. It's just that sometimes in my old age I have to be told 2 or 3 times before it sinks in.

    Just got off the phone with Home Depot -- they said they carry rebar in pre-cut short lengths, so I'm going to swing by on my way out (right now) to pick up a whole bunch of 'em.

    Watch for picts early next week (probably on the "Culvert Project" thread).

    Not sure if this helps, but here are the same clips on my Gannon Box scraper. The insert behind the scarifier from the top.

    Thanks guys - you just confirmed my thoughts about those Box Srapers with the V pins or with whatever you call those things Harv has. I have had my scraper (mfg. unknown)for years and the scarifers have 3 holes for depth adj. They slide up or down in a rail and a bolt and nut actually goes through the rail to secure at the height you want. 5 or 6 years ago during one of my rare "lucid" moments while un-screwing the bolts (self lock nuts) to adjust I said hey Dummy why not throw away the nuts and drill a small hole for a pin-clip just to hold the bolt. Did it works great and fast to make depth adj. Never lost a scarifer or bolt yet. I am now shopping for a new Box Scraper as mine is too small now for the M5700. You can bet it won't have the type of scarifer locks you guys mention. Not hydraulic either - nice but too many dollars. Any suggestions? Got 4.5 hours on my new "machine" no real work yet , just taking it easy and trying to not strain it too hard till I feel comfortable.

    Roger -

    I can't really tell how those clips work from the picture (nice picture, by the way), but I'll trade you straight across for your box, hydraulics included, of course. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Help, I want to add 5 Scarifier Shanks to a exiting box blade. Been looking all winter trying to find a bolt on or even a wield on type attachment. to no luck. Mine is a 7 ft wide blade, with 7 scarcifiying shanks, a foot appart, I want to add 5 shanks so they are only 6 inchs appart. Seems that nobody thinks they should be closer than a foot appart. My purpose is to use what I own to brake up my road and the pot holes left behind from winter traffic. A foot appart, just does not cut it, I leave the road with ruts more than anything else.
    Thanks for your help and advice. Ervin Smith
