    I would like to know more about how you use it to plant trees?

    Where did you get so many?

    Using to break ground for root growth and for water to get in to the ground . I'm planting peach trees ..

    When you plant the trees, are you actually putting then in where the subsoiler has opened up the ground? OR are you just subsoiling beside where you dig traditional holes to plant the trees?

    Wow I'm glad I ran into this thread. im getting ready to purchase the EA Subsoiler and I was planning on running on my MF135. Do you think I would have any luck with it if my soil were dryer than yours? Also its only 4 acres ill be doing will I be able to struggle thru it if need be?

    My L3200 (32hp, 3,500lbs R4s) will pull a subsoiler through Colorado clay. A decent bit of grunt but no issues. Well none until I ran into the iceberg on the north side of my barn where snow/rain ran off & froze. Popped a handful of sheer bolts on that, a few rocks & some stuff I never figured out why.

    I think I got mine from Northern Tool. Definitely need to keep spare sheer bolts around. You can see the bolt get beatup & start to bend over a few hours. A better subsoiler probably has better clearances & won't wear out the sheer bolts over time, only on bad stuff.

    @7879fordman-

    Have you ever sheered a pin on this? I've got the same unit and have broken two top links but never sheered a pin. I'm wondering if it's me/my setup or if there's a flaw in the design.

    Thanks

    I popped a few. The sheer pin setup was a bit sloppy & it would chew up pins a bit then sheer them. Hitting chunks of truly frozen ground or concrete would stop my L3200 dead in it's tracks, but not sheer the pin. I haven't used the subsoiler in a while, or since I upgraded to my L4060 a year or so ago. At double the weight im betting it will pop sheer pins way easier.

    Even though I don't use it much these days & it might be a bit light for my new machine, I see no reason to sell it off unless I happen to find a great deal on a beefier used one on Craigslist or at an auction or something.

    Looks like it would be great for planting hedges - yew, box, beech, etc. Nice straight rows for putting in 1-2 year seedlings, real close together.
