Looking at getting something to rough my fields after this tough winter, are they gentle enough to not do too much damage so I seed a bit?

If you're talking about a chain harrow, it depends upon which side/direction it's towed. Upside down is the most gentle, no tine action. Right side up with tines pointing forward, aggressive. Tines pointing rearward, less aggressive. The cheap ones (1/2" soft steel) aren't worth more than scrap price. Make sure you get 5/8" (or larger) hardened steel.

Hard ground, I used mine points forward. Softer ground, points rearward. That's how I prep for over-seeding. Once seed has been broadcast (or drilled), smooth it with the tines facing the sky. Also good for smoothing gravel roads/driveways, and rough dethatching. I even used mine to windrow broomsage for burning one year.

A chain harrow looks like this and is pretty useful as greg_g described. ....

Probably too late now but anyone try a core aerator? Too pricey to buy I suppose, wonder if they can be rented for a 3PH type? ....

Depending on what you are up against and all you want to do is open it up for broadcast over seeding it, using a disk with the blades set straight or nearly straight will work and also a good landscape rake can. You also may find mowing it very short might expose the dirt enough to over seed it. If using a disk you will need to test the depth and speed you are running for depth of cut.
