 drag harrow

Drag Harrows, or more commonly known as Chain Harrows, are basically just a flexible 'mat' of steel links, usually one side has teeth, the other is smooth. It is dragged (thus the name) behind a tractor to level, smooth and break up any lumps or 'clods' of earth left after cultivating, etc. They are also commonly used for dethatching hay fields, etc., to improve the quality of the plants, or to smooth out a horse riding 'ring' or arena to prevent compaction from the constant traffic. Hope this helps.

Murf--how good are these chain harrows at dethatching a K-31 fescue "lawn?" (I put lawn in quotes since some turf specialists would not use the term K-31 with the term lawn.) This question is in regard to fall lawn maintenance in preparation for overseeding. Mike S.

Mike, the spacing between the teeth on drag harrows is way to broad for anything even close to 'lawn' grade, besides they are notorious for grabbing the edges of ant hills, etc., and tearing out hunks of turf. I've found that the best tractor-powered way to dethatch an area of turf, be it K-31, or other, is an 'old-style' pto (NOT ground-driven) hay rake, the type that has a continous row of teeth that turn between two wheels about 8' apart, leaving a wind-row at one side. this type of equip. allows you to adjust height and speed (both travel, and implement) to get the optimum effect as conditions, etc., change. Then all you have to do is gather up the row of thatch. Best of luck.
