Ours is the 3 point hitch variety.


They are hard to find.

I think I can build one about 6-8 ft wide using OTR truck tires for under $200.

I did test strips on the fields i planted the other day.
The sides that were packed by the tractor had much more coming up in those areas than did the sides that were just lightly disked in.
Gave them probably a good weeks head start if not more over the non packed side.

I built one of these a few years ago and it works great as long as you don't have a lot of rocks.

Is that a culvert pipe with concrete in it?

That is some old plastic culvert we had around camp. I had to buy 2 pillow block bearings and a 2" receiver and 6 bags of sakrete. I used scrap from our driveline shop to build the frame so I had less then $100 in building it. It works great on small fields but just not big enough for the larger fields.

What does it weigh? What is the diameter? I have a piece of new 26" plastic pipe about 10' long I've been thinking about fixing, maybe a 7' long packer, but I don't know what it would weigh to move around and what it would take to pull it, probably a small tractor.

I had to find my notes. It's 15" diameter and 44" long. I used 8 bags of sakrete and it weighs 550 lbs.

I made this one from heavy 6AWG chainlink fence wire. It is 15 years old and has been used to drag many fields. It does a great job, especially with the added weight of the tires, but it takes a good atv to pull it. We have just pulled it with a truck too.

Huh? You can buy them anytime. A quick Google search offers lots of choices.

For smaller plots I took three landscape 4x4's, changed them about 8" apart and bolted angle metal across them to keep them from rolling. Then took another piece of chain and made a hookup for the ATV. Works pretty dang good, light enough to haul.

We've always just covered our seed with about a 4 ft lengt of chain length fence. Attach a 2x4 at the front and rear for weight and tie a rope to both ends of one of the boards tie a loop in the middle of the rope to attach to a ball hitch. Works good soesnt cover to deep and smooths out well after discing. Also rolls up easy to haul on the back of an atv

I use a 6', round post behind my disk while disking and covering. This is the forth year I've been using this set up. It takes longer but it does a good job. I disk and cover so the pole doesn't bounce and is in constant contact with the ground.

We used to use a chain link gate behind an ATV. In our case, the gate looked like it did a good job because all of the seed was dusted when finished. After the rain washed the dust off it was alarming how much seed wasn't covered. Maybe some weight would have helped. The crows and turkeys appreciated it though.

What kind of drag harrow are you using? Is it a homemade or one of the heavy chained drag harrows? Pics would be nice if you have any.

these things work awesome you can break the soil with the spikes then flip it over to cover and smooth the one ive used weighed about 100 pounds
