    Default Another Home made implement.

    I haven't made anything in a while, I guess I didn't really need anything. I needed to dig an area out to level it up for a chicken run but it was full of tree roots and the like and as we well know FEL's don't really dig that well for starters in solid soil let alone get roots out too. I thought to myself I need a scarifier or something like that but not having time to make something elaborate I came up with a good little work around. I removed the ball from my 3 point towbar and made up a bolt on single scarifier that works a treat. I do need to reinforce the tongue on the bar though as it bent when I ripped through sub soil roots, I was surprised it bent fairly easily even though it is 20mm thick! Never mind next I'll come up with a reinforcing plan to stop the bend.

    Looks like you got the job done. Some braces maybe on the sides wouldn't hurt. Regards, Bob
