Cool, never seen one. A nice tool but probably $25k+.Another way I've used to install a 6000' long water line is to use a single blade ripper to pull 200' lengths of 1" PVC using a Kellems grip (Chinese finger grabber) as shown in the video. We dug a small hole at the end of each pull for the couplings and feeding in the next section. I used my ride on Ditch Witch for the rocky sections.
My mid size Deere 4wd tractor (55hp PTO) has more than enough pull for a 1.25" thick ripper down 15" in a pasture. A medium or larger lawn tractor would probably pull a 1/4" or 3/8" thick ripper down an inch or two. That should work for radials (or small conduits, coax) by pulling the radial wire from a spool at the central grounding point. It shouldn't be too hard to fabricate from steel plate with a hole drilled near the bottom to tie the wire. Weld it on to a trailer ball stub to fit whatever the tractor has a mount. Remove it at the end of each pull. Repeat.

Is just n idea or you know about it? Some photos? no rocks, only grass and agricultural land, could make a channel with a shovel, but I'm looking for something more practical for many radial Thanks, Jorge -----Mensaje original----- De: Topband [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] En nombre de Herbert Schoenbohm Enviado el: martes, 09 de diciembre de 2014 12:42 p.m. Para: email@example.com Asunto: Re: Topband: tool for install radialsProbably the best item for installing radials is a small vibrating plow onthe back of a lawn tractor. Dig only one hole. put in the blade and theradial wire on a spool above is fed through a hole in the hollow plow blade which effortlessly drives along unspooling the wire and leaving only a smallslit in the ground which disappears in days.However, it doesn't work well in rocky terrain. Some people I have heard usea chain saw but you must be very careful with that method.

Couldn´t find it in website, don´t know the name in English Could you please help me to find it or send me close up photos of yours to try to ask someone locally to make one?
