Garden Tractor Driveway Leveler
I made a box scraper with scarifier shanks from material I had around the farm. It has saved me from having to buy many tons of gravel for my driveway, says Steve Nichols, Galesburg, Ill.
Ive seen levelers somewhat like this made for tractor 3-pt. hitches, but Ive never seen one made to be pulled from the drawbar on a garden tractor.
The hitch is adjustable for various height drawbars and the guide wheels adjust for various depths of cut. The scarifier shanks can be pinned up into the transport position, as shown in these photos.
This leveler started off as a Brinly cultivator. I mounted a heavy cutting blade from a big snowplow and mounted the shanks on a crossbar. It brings rocks back up to the surface and levels the low spots that become puddles.
