    Default CHAIN DRAG HARROW

    I'm interested in chain drag harrow 6-7' wide by 8-10' long with support frame carried by 3-pt hitch. Any thoughts on how big a chain harrow you could carry with NH TC40 hitch.

    you could probalby do an 8' wide one

    But
    I use a drag more than most people (business, need it for seeding, easily in the last month I've harrowed probably 100+ acres and I'll do 6 to 8 more tuesday) and I HATE the normal style ones. I've seen these and when the regular one I have now wears out (probably in a year or so), I'm buying one of these
    slicker than snot, heavy, non-tangling, self-cleaning
    really, very cool.

    ok, their website needs help, but trust me, it's slick.
    Tell them I sent you so they'll give me a discount when i need one.

    The ones around here are sold by section, a section being 4' x 4' of 5/8" steel. To make your harrow wider/longer, you simply connect sections. Unless you have access to other types, that means you're looking at widths and lengths in 4 foot increments. I put together four sections in to make an 8' x 8' harrow, then framed it with steel pipe. I lift/transport it with an extended boom pole. Even though we're only talking 500# or so, lifting by boom pole shifts the center of gravity farther back. That could be an issue to tractors with light front ends.

    There are ready made units with their own three point connections welded to what ordinarily is the tow bar. But since they cost as much or more as the chain sections myself, I made my own lift. So the answer to your question depends upon how many sections you hook together, and how far behind the tractor they get lifted.

    I'll need some sort of system to transport from field to field and need to cross a road and several short jeep trails. Since I don't weld, I'll probably have to buy commercially available carrier frame for 3-pt.

    Just bought one on eBay with "buy it now", $350 delivered for a 6ft wide by 4ft long 120lb drag harrow. Came UPS about 6 days after payment. Interesting packing job for shipping.

    Does what I wanted. Smooths the sand in the 60 ft ring I made for my wife to lung the horses. I'm clearing woods for the pasture. I wanted the harrow to follow the contours of the land rather then a box blade or your rake with a ridged edge. With a couple of logs for weight on top the drag is helping to smooth the contours well mixing in old hay, manure, and wood chips from the chipper. My MF 1540 could easily handle something bigger but this is the right size for my current needs to maneuver around trees and tree stumps still in the pasture.

    When done I can load it in the bucket with just the pull bar hanging over on one end.

    I just bought the 3-pt carrier attachment. It seemed ridiculously expensive at the time, but I really couldn't figure out how to do it myself so I bit the bullet.

    This one is 8 x 8 feet and ran about 700 clams. I use it for a variety of things, arena groom, dethatcher, manure buster, seed bed prep in pastures, leveling... very handy device.

    There was a post here not long ago where a fellow had used a boom pole to raise and lower a homemade drag harrow. I'm going to try to duplicate that some time in the future.

    I helped a buddy 'make' one using an old drag harrow and then welding some chain sections to some t-posts. thenattaching the chains tot he harrow.. seems like 9 short 6" chain sections were used to attach the t-post box to the 4x6 harrow.. then use a boom pole and attach up.. etc..

    Looked 'improvised' for sure.. but all the parts were free.. so...
