Actually that's a good point. Ron at Maidwell said the hired 775E we had would pull a mounted but not a trailed.
Not sure how the steering goes as historically crawlers have trailed implements. But I know our neighbors have a mounted twin leg on a challenger and seem to get on ok

Some mounted moles have pivots built into them to allow crawlers to steer.

I haven't looked too closely at modern crawlers, but guess not many or any of them have swinging linkage like track marshell crawlers had?

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough, we already have a mounted one and it seems to work. I was just a bit worried that @Banana Bar said his 775E couldn't put a twin leg in less than ideal conditions so was curious whether his was trailed or not.
 
Moleing when the subsoil is too dry will increase the heave

moleing with a 3 inch bulllet gives a better mole when it is getting close to too wet at moleing depth

I have found that a worn mole bullet is a false saving leading to a poor mole which fails quicker
I now use ceramic bullets which last several times longer

We brought a Maidwell last year, worth the money it'll certainly last a life time. Go mounted over a trailed if you're limited for HP, magnum handled 2 legs fine. I'd recommend press wheels, they leave a good finish with minimal reeving (well enough for DD i dont know - depends what angle to your tramlines and how good your sprayer suspension is!)

How does the price compare to other brands/designs? Fan of the press wheels!

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
