I think this is the implement you are asking about: in upper right of web site there is a "Topic Search" field. Type in "DR Road Grader". It was discussed recently. kt

DR: Isn't that just a box scraper with a power adjustable blade inside?

Have you considered a power boxblade/scraper, power rake aka Harley rake? I have a 6' wide one and couldn't do without it.

KT thanks for the referance EW the harley rake is a great piece of equipment but a bit over kill for what I want to do and at over 7K it would be a waste of money for me to use it several times per year.

Doc; The DR Power Grader I've saw in use on the TV commercials looks to being pulled over alreasy loosened gravel. I have never saw one up close and personal, but they just don't appear heavy enpough to penetrate a crusted over driveway. I have no idea what one would cost, but my experience with a box scraper with scarifier teeth followed by a landscape rake does a good job without breaking the bank. Frank.

Doc, I bought mine from a rental yard with about 20 hours on it at the most for $4200. I also have a full-size Galion road grader which is what I used before I had either the power rake OR the pull-type pulverizer. The grader has sat for 5 years now since all I use now is the power rake and a box blade to smooth it.

Another alternative is a pull-type pulverizer--which is what I used before I had the power rake. It has finger-sized spikes spaced about 6" apart in several rows that brak up clods of whathaveyou, then are run over and further broken up by two spiked rollers of differing size. You can use this for anything from regrading (loosening) a stone driveway to removing thick weeds or grass for a garden or lawn, to preparing a seed bed. They're about $600 used - $1000 new.

I am curious as to the need? There are a lot of tools that might not cost as much and still might get the job done. For trails some times just a three point cultivator will level enough. For use in horse areas there are many types of finger type machines that work well.

I have a 300ft stone driveway it is level and I do not get washout or large potholes. The stone and gravel move to the sides after time and I would like to move it back, smooth it out, and make it look all pretty as the wife says. I also have a large stone area about 200 x 80 that is all stone again no washout or potholes just unleveling from vehicle tires turning in the stone. I don't think I need anything to heavey duty. I already have a rake but it does not make a nice pretty finish this is probably due to my skill level not the rake itself. I also made a drag out of some old chain link fence that does a good job leveling but not moving the stone back to the center. I would also use the grader to condition the paddock. I like the DR because I can pull it with the ATV. It also comes with a drag and cost about $1300 delivered. They say I have up to 6 months to try it if I don't like they take it back for full refund including shipping.

It is hard to believe your ATV will be able to pull something that will handle rock, that a good quality rake will not move. Will your rake rotate or can you only pull it straight. If it will rotate have you tried setting it where it will roll the rocks to the road bed center?

I would be very sure I understood DR's return policy. You can be sure they don't expect to get many back. kt

My rake does angle and does move the stone ok I just don't like the final look. I even thought of using the rake first then the grader to dress it up. I will question the return policy before I order.
