    Pictures of the QA would be great.

    One advantage of having some side gussets is to push soil out of the way if you need to dig deeper than 18-24 inches or so. I have dug down four feet with no trouble.

    I am hoping the paint will be set up today, so I can give mine a test run. I can add some of the extras you guys have, if I need them. One extra I am planning for sure is a pipe behind the blade bent to a 90degree. I am planning on using this to plow in some electric line to a yard light several hundred feet from the house. I have a buddy wanting a water line out to a remote flower bed also. That is main reason I haven't added gussets yet. I want to get the water line down as far as possible without making too big of a mess in his new lawn.

    I'll be interested to see how your electric line placement goes. I wouldn't think it would be convenient or easy to do with the ripper on a BH due to the number of moves and the need to maintain continuity. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    Thanks IslandTractor for the design and Bob at MIE for the fabrication.
    Received mine about 10 days ago. I haven't had a change to play with it yet. I been putting in drainage lines. A lot of ditch digging. The line I installed the end of last week gets almost 2 gallons per minutes on the discharge side.

    For storing that thing, it looks like a candidate for the 'stick it in the ground and unhook it' method. Crude I know, but somebody had to say it..
    Nice attachment.

    Yep that would be easy for storage. Trouble is more with hooking it back up. Getting the first pin back in involves precision positioning, to a few millimeters in three dimensions. If the ripper is stable in the ground you need to make the BH adjustments from the operator station which is pretty much impossible with that degree of precision. Basically the ripper must be the adjustable piece even though it is not easily stabilized. Hard to hang it as the hanging chain will interfer with getting the BH in position. Mounting on a height adjustable wheeled cart as others have suggested probably makes the most sense IMO. A push cart with a screw jack on top might work if the ripper can be balanced or secured to the jack. QA adapter would be even better.

    Well I just got through wearing all the new paint off my blade. It worked perfectly. As far as gussetts, I can stall the hydraulics and raise the machine off the ground with it. It doesn't show a sign of any bending or breakage. I pulled up at least two dozen small trees. We haven't had rain here in several months, and I can cut through the clay soil like butter. I have to run all these trees through my chipper so I can get back to pulling up some more. Good luck with your projects.

    I was in too big of a hurry to post how well it worked. I'll have to get some pictures to post later.

    OK, a few pictures for you picture junkies. The hydraulic quick connect is the reason I got this machine.
