Over the weekend I purchased a John Deere Killefer subsoiler for my farm. It has a mole attached for creating a drain channel. I'm hoping my 50hp 2wd diesel tractor will pull it through my clay soil. Is anyone else using a similar set up in hard clay? My soil goes from formless goop when saturated to concrete when dry.
There is a Yeomans dealer less than an hour from me if this doesn't work.
I will post in the spring to report on how the set up performs.
The only way I have ever seen that idea work was when a group of guys got together and formed a legal co-op for equipment sharing.
It lasted about 20 years before the founders were retired and their kids killed the co-op.
I personally would like to have just the equipment needed, rather bare bones by most farmer standards.
1 tractor, one yeoman plow, one box blade, those two attachments would do 90% of what I need to get done.
The only other attachment would be a pto driven auger for post holes.
