The mole plough is originally an agricultural tool which is mounted on a tractor and used for cultivating soil. In sports pitches it is used as a method of installing water pipes without trenches and with minimum disturbance to the playing surface. Alternatively it can be used solely to break up impenetrable soil and aid drainage.
The mole plough is a deep cutting plough which has a wedge shaped tip and a narrow shaft which leaves a channel deep underground. They are equipped with a rear roller to leave a smooth finish and a single front coulter to minimise turf damage.
