How To Run Water Lines Out To Pasture
In order to provide plenty of water to cattle on pasture at a reasonable cost, Dave Lubben of Monticello, Iowa, came up with a nifty water line digger that fits on his tractor 3-pt. hitch.
He mounted a single, spring-loaded chisel plow shank on a triangular-shaped frame that fits his 3-pt. Then he made a bracket to fit the back side of the chisel shank that holds a 2-in. dia. metal tube. The tube extends out behind the shank, running as deep as the chisel plow shovel.
Lubben simply feeds plastic water line down through the metal tube to bury it, running the chisel shank as deep as possible. He runs the water lines out to large water tanks in his pastures. To protect the floats from damage by cattle, he puts posts up around the floats on one side of the tanks.
