    Harrow sections

    We need to bust up some manure and hay piles this spring, so I've about convinced myself to build a chain harrow. Not just pieces of chain or fence, but with actual teeth. I can get two 6.5x4' sections of the chain assembly for $580 shipped, and I'm contemplating building a folding 12' three point harrow. I thought about building a solid framed spike harrow, but I don't think it would follow the ground as well and would probably cost more.

    Any thoughts, or suggestions on where to get the chin sections cheaper? I've been watching Craigslist, but not much turns up. I found a 15' S tine harrow for $150, but it's seven hours away and is missing all the S tines.

    I built one for my wife,,, it is her horse.

    Actually,, I built 2,, the first one was a prototype,,, not as refined.

    It worked PERFECT,,, we gave the prototype to our farrier as a Christmas present.

    She had been using the chain type you had mentioned.

    She found mine worked MUCH better than the chain type.

    I had the materials,, my cost was zero.

    The beam REALLY breaks everything up perfectly.











    This thing has WAY more weight per foot than the chain type.

    It makes the driveway REALLY nice,,, too!!

    Don't know if this will help, but wanted to share it. They have several sizes and you could fabricate a 3pt hitch for it. You may have similar chain harrows closer to you.

    Well, no sooner than I posted one popped up on Craigslist.

    Mozzie, want to go for a car ride?

    It's a spike harrow made up of two 5' sections. The teeth are adjustable for angle, it needs a little work but it should do. May attach a section of fence behind it to help scatter stuff after the teeth break through it.

    Originally I was planning to convert it to a three point hitch, but I think I may stick with the chain and see if the Gator can pull it. That would compact the ground a lot less than having to use the tractor.

    Dave, that's the exact type I was looking at. I found the chain sections for slightly less, but they still seemed pretty expensive. A 4x4' piece was $130, plus about $60 shipping.

    It looks like it works great! I don't know how well it could break up a few inches of wet, sticky hay though. I'm not sure how the one I bought will do with it, but I can always add weight if I need to.

    IMO, something that is great for hay, wont be worth a hoot on manure,,,
    and vice versa,,,

    Long tines for hay,,, and mash/crumble the manure,,,
