    Default Subsoiler

    Bought the everything attachment subsoiler Tuesday evening got it Friday evening super fast shipping . Great beefy unit . Super great salesman for double check'n they had one and get'n it out to me .
    Put it behind the mf135 but its I guess a little to wet or not enought tractor it will spin out on me .. Going to hook it behind the m7040 and see what happens .
    I guess I need the the blade adjusted straight up and down right ?? In the pics it was at just a angle I adjusted it straight up and down after this pic ...
    Or how does it need to be angled ???

    That is super fast shipping!

    You might bend it with the m7040 if used in 4x4, depending on what it's rated for.

    I've not used a subsoiler in years and forget the details. Seems like it would be easier to get it to dig in initially with it tilted the way you had it set up. Not sure if there would be any down side to that.

    If it were mine, I'd have it straight up and down. You're using the draft control right? and fluid in the tires makes a huge difference in the way a 135 plows.

    Ya no fluid in the tires never needed it plowing with double mold board plow or any other plow . That's why I was Surprised with this subsoiler .

    But I guess I will play with the angle .

    And yes I did watch the video before buying . Watched Several others of there's also found a few other things I want . Lol

    And m7040 shouldn't bend it it should shear the bolt I hope and not damage anything .
    And ya I got to pick up some spares .

    Will post up what happens ..

    And on the shipping ya smoking fast guess the salesman since'd I wanted fast . Which I did .

    I set my top link so it is directly above the 3pt pins. The angle of the blade will make it dive. That being said have you tried to let it dig a little at a time to see where you start to loose traction then raise it a little. Even with poor traction you can make multiple passes to get it to the depth you want.

    Just to be clear, liquid filled tires can still spin in mud or matted wet grass/brush so that isn't always the solution.

    Ask me how I know.

    Just wondering, what was the original purpose of the subsoiler? In my area, it is mainly used for breaking up a plow hardpan, which increases vertical drainage and root growth. I'm aware that in other soils, they are used for horizontal drainage to move water down a slope with less erosion. The "soiled" photos to me look as if the ground is a little too wet, but maybe your intent was to move that water. Let us know. They are also great for finding large rocks and buried treasures/headaches.

    Shorter the top link the keener it will dig in. It will also tend to "lift" the soil more on each side of the trench. The trench will also be wider.
