    I bought one recently from TSC - mainly to rip up roots and get some pesky stumps out of the ground. It's built pretty solid, and you would really have to beat on it to bang it up.

    I have the same one and have bent it. The upper frame is what bent on mine. I have since reinforced it and moded it to be quick hitch compatable. It is an okay unit for the price, but you really have to watch it and go slow to avoid tearing it up. I bent mine pulling it with a John Deere 4300.

    Has any manufacturer ever built one with a spring trip similar to the ones on gang plows to keep the tractor from coming to a sudden stop when you find a ledge?

    We've twisted up the KK subsoiler when a weld broke loose. Never had a problem with the old Dearborns (Dearborn 10-89 Subsoiler - Owner's Manual) which are common at auctions around here. I think mine was $20. These have a shear pin to prevent damage. Fred Cain makes a copy of the old Dearborn, but I don't know the relative quality.

    I built and use this home made sub soil tool as a rock / root grubber for pulling things from the yard.
    I have also used it to cut some places for run off rain water to drain to.

    The section of sharper edge helps a lot.
    I'm pulling it with a 24hp JD855 hydrostatic.

    It is simple and cheap to build. I'm sure there are better implements available, but I'm sure more $ also.
    The potato plow type tool in the first picture also works well in garden type ground.
    Good luck

    Will the middle buster style tater digger go 18" deep? The ones I have looked at at the local TSC don't look like they would go as deep as an actual sub-soiler is intended to operate.

    I don't think so. They tend to ride up on the soil and work best in ground that is somewhat soft to begin with. Probably 8" is all they will do and they will create some hard pan in clay soil doing it. Rippers at 12" to 14" work really well at both fracturing the ground and improved drainage.
