 Best way to level Lawn

I have an existing lawn that g has is really got lots of sunken spots that jar me when I go over them at normal speed.

Every year I say I will spray the low spots with marker paint in the winter when it is easy to see them and every year I let it slip.

Any tips on best practice approach, type soil to spread sand loam topsoil mix ?

Drags to use behind tractor to make easy?

Thanks!

I have a Tractor with a loader and a rear grader blade. Right now I have the loader off and the mid mower on. But I would like to hear about DIY hacks as well

The unevenness is caused by a less than perfect original landscaping job, brush and very small tree clearing that has settled after more than a decade. The yard never had any topsoil hauled in, it is just the dirt that was scraped up when the property was stumped. Property was bulldozed and rock hounded and seeded, no hand raking. Soil has lots of small rock in it, for example to dig a mailbox post hole takes several hours and lots of sweat to complete.

The lawn depressions have not been changing in the last 5 years,

No putting green desired, just a nice reduction in bouncing on the tractor.

Thanks so much for the ideas.

I do not have a old steel bed frame now, I do have a Pallet. I have only one Tractor and 3 acres to work on.

At this point I think I will tackle the most egregious depressions that whiplash me when I hit them.

While I live with my spouse and 20 something daughter they do not help me with any outdoor project whether not there is food or beer So Sad So I am on my own.

I think I will just dump these low spots and and back blade with the bucket or reverse the grader blade. And then hand rake.

Then I will have to see how much juice is left in this old battery as to whether I will do broader leveling efforts with the drags you folks recommend.

What do think of the drag I found on YT? Is it worth making?
