I am very new to this line of work, but I am looking to help a friend with procuring a narrow attachment that would fit on a Mitsubishi ME15 excavator to dig 18 inch deep trenches as narrow as possible, just enough to lay pipes. His 12 inch wide bucket is overkill for the 1 inch pipes we are laying, and trenchers and special attachments cost more than we'd like to spend. For how long I have spent looking, I feel I am missing a key word in my searches, or no such attachments exist. A ripper blade would do what Id like, but finding one is difficult. I planned on only spending 200 dollars on a little hunk of steel but I need advice and direction. We will be dealing with thick, wet Texas clay by the way, the kind that gives a cheap trencher a hard time. Please pardon my lack of knowledge. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
