    Default attachment needed for drainage trenches

    Hello,

    I am looking for an attachment for my JD 4320 (48HP machine). I need to clean out and make drainage trenches in my fields.

    I am considering a V-shaped rear plow. Does anyone have any experience with these or other methods of cleaning out shallow drainage trenches?

    Thanks in advance,

    John

    Let me know what you come up with. I might be able to make it work to clean out my ditches if you come up with something new...

    later,
    Jim

    How about a 1 bottom plow pulled both directions so the dirt is tosses away from the center. You would get a 12-14" trench pretty quick. Then a back blade / rake to pull the dirt away from the edge and spread it out.
