Steel Tube Drag Leaves Field Smooth
"I angled it in the front to make it like a sled," Golden says. With 4 cross pieces it does a good job of leveling land, which is important to Golden and his son, who raise and cut hay.
While it's good at shaving off humps, the drag didn't work so well on sandy ground with a lot of trash, he notes. The debris balled up. The nearly 2-ton drag requires a good size tractor. Golden uses a 125 hp tractor and pulls it with chains from the front two corners hitched to the drag bar.
"This worked like a charm to level land around the lake," he says. "It makes a wonderful road grader, too."
