Fabrication may be a stretch.... but made. I have been digging a lot to bury direct burial power lines to various spots. Been using a piece of flat steel and it has worked. Recently I changed my bush hog blades and thought they would really improve my digging. The shape lends to a turning of the soil out of the trench and makes a great little trench. Just unbolt the one row plow and attach the blade.

If you bend a piece of EMT and bolt it to the shank you can pull your trench and lay the cable at the same time,,, OH yeah mark the cables too

I thought about that and wish I would have done that from the get go. Since moving here 2 years ago I have buried over 1,500 feet of line.

Great idea, now I wish I didn't just scrap my old blades 2 weeks ago.
