    Default Attachment On Subsoiler To Lay Pipe

    I am interested in an attachment that would maybe go on a subsoiler to lay ABS pipe. I live in northern Florida and enjoy sandy soil with no rocks. It would be easy to use an attachment that would pull ABS pipe behind a subsoiler. Has anyone used any thing such? How good did it work?

    I welded an old trailer ball stem to a 3/4 pipe coupler. Then welded a short piece of chain to the top of the ball. I attach it to subsoiler point on the backside by the lower bolt that holds the point on. The rest is self explanatory. Works great. 800 ft was my longest pull.

    I've never done it myself but I've seen people use a slow L (electric conduit 90). They attached it to the back of the subsoiler with one end pointing up and the other underground pointing to the rear. They fed the pipe through the 90 as it was pulled along. A short piece of pipe was installed in the upright section to keep the opening above ground level. Seemed to work pretty well.

    pjbci, That is kind of what I'd like to do...pull it through the ground instead of laying it with (Agra Supply part numbers 73410 & 73622, [thanks MtnViewRanch]). What kind of soil do you have in MS.? I thought I''d use a standard subsoiler, put a bit wider foot on it, and use a set of 'Chinese fingers'. That should keep the dirt out of the end of the pipe, too.

    I've pulled it thru both hard clay and sandy soils here. If i'm pulling in hard clay during the dry months i'll make a couple passes to loosen the clay before I pull the pipe. Mine is a very old JD subsoiler.

    These work fine & we use similar set ups from a simple 3PLunit to the more complex arrangement on our little Case dozer (pictured) to lay everything from polypipe to contract optical fibre cables with great success - as stated previously with the 3PL units in harder soils it's best to first rip the soil (ideally in the opposite direction) prior to laying polypipe - don't forget both to "anchor" the pipe & allow sufficient overlap when starting the pull. it also helps to have an extra set of hands helping feed the pipe into the 3PL subsoilers.
