Most Common would be Sumo, but Grange worth a look although there's doesn't have a rear roller as is a combination type machine. Also look at Agriweld have one in my shed and looks very impressive, well thought out and made

It will also depend on what leg is on the subsoiler and if it’s properly set up. Iv used a 3 leg flatlift loads and in the right conditions it really does lift and shatter the subsoil but it wants setting up ever so slightly pitching forward for better consolidation, lift out very slowly while moving and don’t go faster than 6-8km/hr.

If it’s legs alone your after I find the metcalffes ng system is perfect. Tough streamlined leg for low draft and a selection of wing widths to suit the job.

Moving from 24 to 36m tramlines so been looking for something to rip up tramlines this year

Can’t get over the cost ! I saw a LDS at almost 20k for a subsoiler !

Will be making something I think or looking for something old but solid !

yes probably cheap that making something but I do have a few old Simba Prolift legs on a shelf I could use

I have been doing a lot of conversion legs over the last few years as new sub-soiler sales have been a bit slow.
If your are looking for something a bit better than the prolift legs Clive then give us a call.
I have most makes covered, even put low disturbance legs in a Lemken auto reset Terradisc ( smaragd) which is going well.
Its the foot that's doing the work not the frame.

I have a 3m Shakaerator with 7 legs we use before OSR. Looking at fitting grass discs to it to lift some pasture after last year that got badly tramped but wondering about the layout . Would 5 tines across the back tend to raise a slab? I'd heard something similar about the Erth machine which has non staggered tines.
