Okay, by no means is this really worthy of a "do it yourself". I'm aware all I did was pop a few screws and attach a chain. BUT. I had been doing some grading and felt I was at a point where I had done all I could do with the tractor, and I needed a drag or to start working it by hand.

Well, I have this old tractor tire I will flip for exercise, and some old treated 4x4x8 posts, so I put this together with a chain and drug it around and it actually worked really well!

I needed to throw something together with what I had on hand. First I tried to just screw one 4x4x8 to my (~30') chain with a long length behind the post but it didn't do much. This actually works! By no means did it eliminate all hand raking but it made it minimal.

Nice work! The only problem I see; you can't back it up. :ROFLMAO:

I definitely can't back it up. Haha. I was very careful with my lines and a time or 3 I had to get out and man handle it over one way or the other.

I can lift or lower the 3ph though depending on the situation to adjust the aggressiveness of that front 4x4.

I would like to pair this with a boom pole to lift the back and then I might really be able to back up.

This is my DIY land leveler pulled from the scrap pile:

I enjoy seeing your unique tractors.

I really like the idea of the cattle gate as a leveler. I've priced gates recently, I want to add one to my shed I park my trailers and tractor in.

They're priced such that I even think it would be worth buying a new one for this task, if it works that well.

Old piece of train track, skidder tire chain cut in 1/2 and a piece of tubing of some sort….
