Junked Plow Buries Pipe Fast
Millard Smith wanted to run an underground water line from his pond to a garden near his home. Because it was 300 ft. in hard, dry Texas soil, he built a one-row “plow” to feed the 1-in. plastic pipe underground.
  “I used materials available around the farm. I had some old points from a box blade and made a framework to attach to the 3-point hitch. I had old discs to make the reel to hold the plastic pipe that fed into a plastic pipe on the plow,” Smith explains.
  He was able to cut a trench and bury the pipe in one pass.
  “It sure was handy. This saved me a lot of hand digging and covering,” Smith says. “I suppose one could bury electric underground cable as well.”
