 Chain Link Fence Drag

Eddie I have never built such a drag but I have been thinking about it. There should be a pipe in the front of the drag so you can have something to attach the drag line to and to help hold the shape of the fence. The front pipe would also help break up some clumps. A rear pipe would also be beneficial as it would help to hold the shape of the fencing and provide a final smoothing action. The size of the pipe and the width of the fencing would depend largely on what is available and how large your tractor is. I think 1" front and rear pipes would work just fine in normal tilled soil. 60" fence would cover the tracks of most compacts. Good luck and let me know how your project turns out.

Thanks, Larry. That will probably be my project for next weekend. I'll let you know.

I remember watching someone doing final lawn preparation by dragging a chain link fence when I was a kid. There was no pipe on the back.

A bed frame with springs in it has allways been a good leveling too for me.I even put a 3 point hicth on one and a place for suite case weights,adjust the top link for the best finish on different soils.

 Chain Link Fence Drag

In my experience, the more weight on the front of the chain, the better. I use
a 4 foot section of well casing. It's about 10" dia, and weighs about 80lbs.
Anything less and the front of the chain link lifts off the ground as you pull it.
A couple of 4x4 pieces on the back end keep the fence straight. Definitely low
tech, but it works well. Be sure to level first with a blade or harrow, as
this rig will NOT fill in any hollows, or remove any humps, but will smooth the
surface to the existing contours. If your lawn is on a slope, it is a good idea
to scratch the surface at 90degrees to the slope prior to spreading seed. Stops
it running off with the rain. A leaf rake works well. And don't water the ground or the seed before you roll!!!
