Hi, I'm Ted from Everything Attachments, and we're here to show you the chain style drag harrow. These are used for a lot of different things in several different ways. We've turned it upside down to give you an idea of what it's going to... What these were really designed for was to go over large pastures that had a lot of manure piles in them. Actually, that's too much fertilizer in a small area. So, you would turn it upside down and drag this with these tips down, and it breaks up all the hard manure clumps, things like that, to spread out your fertilizer in your pasture. That's going to help all that.
A lot of people have decided to use these for a lot of things that work great. This toolbar here is going to hook into these hooks here. This is a six foot drag harrow so it's pretty narrow. It's seven feet long. So, in this position here, upside down, a lot of people use it for horse riding arenas for their horses, baseball diamonds, a lot of things. We're going to turn it upside down in its proper position to be used for like in a pasture, breaking up your manure piles and so forth. A lot of people use it to go over their gardens and smooth out after their disc harrow. So, that's what we're going to do with it. It's got a lot of different uses. We're going to hook it to the toolbar. We're going to pull it though here and show you how it levels out this unlevel ground. If you wanted to just smooth out a baseball diamond or your horse riding arena, that's the direction you would put it in, upside down.
That's going to drag the trash off the top of it and give it that fine groomed look that you want for a really nice garden. So, you can see it pulling the trash out, going to leave you a nice smooth area. I hope these videos are really working good for everybody because it sure is hot out here today. It's about 95 degrees with a heat index of 100, so we're out here sweating a little bit. Just to give you an idea of the drag harrow, after you've plowed and disced, you've still got a little trash, rocks, and clods that are going to be in here. This half has what we did in this direction. You can kind of get an idea of the crap it pulled out of the ground. We'll show you up here the clods and stuff that it pulled out. We do have the good North Carolina clods around here that get as hard as a rock. Here's what it's pulled out on this side when we were pulling in this direction. A lot of big clods, grass, stuff you don't want in your garden when you're planting by hand especially.
So now, we've got it in position like for a horse arena or doing any of your really fine grading you might have, whether it be a baseball diamond or something. It's not going to do any damage to your turf. Your areas that are clay are going to really smooth out and make... This is not near as smooth as you would have a baseball diamond, of course, or your horse arena. But, it'll give you an idea how it does leave a smoother look on top of the ground. So, if you're in a really tight area, you've got a small garden or a horse arena where you need to be able to make sharp turns, you've got two things you can do. You can lengthen your drawbar out a little further. That'll help some. But, to get a lot where you can turn any way you want to, you can always add a piece of chain a couple of feet long from this loop right here to your drawbar. Then, you can turn as sharp as you want without the bar getting into your tires like it's going to here.
For those of you that are doing food plots with a disc harrow, we're showing what it looks like after you go over it with a drag harrow to just pull some of the loose wiregrass and stuff off the top. Okay, for those that are using it for this intended use of a drag harrow, which is going through your pastures and breaking up your manure clods, we're going to show you how you can go over your grass. And, it's really not going to disturb your grass but it's going to break up your manure piles to make you good fertilizer instead of bad fertilizer, which is too concentrated. So, it may pull up a little bit of wiregrass but it's not going to hurt the grass. That'll be breaking up all your manure clods. You can pull this through your pasture about two or three times that speed if you like to cover some ground.
