Some great replys!
I checked at HD today and found that 3/4" cpvc conduit is only $.30 more a stick so as per your good advice I'll spend the whopping extra $6 and make it easier to pull the wires.
I also found some 8-2 wg romex on Craigslist so I plan to run that from the panel till I get it out of the house.
If I'm going to be stupid, dangerous and illegal It'll be my rear end that's at risk and not my poor tennants'.
Gonna be great sitting there in my sneakers and a sweatshirt, sipping coffee and listening to the radio instead of freezing my toenails off in an open stand like I've done for the last 47 years. Getting soft I guess.
I'll post some photos of my shack when I get closer to having it done.
Meanwhile, just to keep this tractor (or tool) related here's a pic of a 3 point trencher I built about 10 years ago. I think I will add a small wing on each side of blade to open the trench a little wider. Make it easier to drop the conduit in.
Many thanks to all.
Billy Bob

I have plowed in ridge conduit in, screwed in to gather in one long run and hook it behind a plow about like yours and pulled in into the ground. Ditch Witch makes a machine for that.

Why not glue, actually it's a solvent weld, the PVC conduit together and let it set for a day or two, then plow it in. Maybe go through with just the plow first, then pull the conduit in going through the same trench you mad before.

It's a good idea to go over size on the conduit.

Let us know how it works.
