    I guess we'll all be shocked when he digs a trench 3 feet deep and 2 feet wide and 40 feet long in two minutes. The Wright brothers had to start somewhere.

    Ok you doubting Thomas'. Had a chance to hook it up and try it for a few minutes tonight, just before dark. Mostly because I know you guys want to know how badly it will self distruct!!

    Well I only dug a trench about 15' long and 19" deep. It worked well except for the telescoping front guard. There is not enough slope at the bottom of it to keep from digging into the ground so I will have to weld on a bigger skid plate. Other than that it worked as I expected. Even piled up the dirt beside the trench. I'm surprised that worked.

    Only ran the tractor at 1500 rpms which did not seem to put undo stress on the trencher. It did make the tractor work a little.

    I don't have a video camera so no video. It would have been very anti climactic anyway. I'll try to get action shots when I finish up the trench and it is light out.
