I used to own a chain harrow.Worked well until I forgot where I left it and ran over it when feeding :dunce: .Then my son was bush hogging and didn't know where it was until he "found" it.
Last summer I bolted some old heavy tractor and loader tires together with short pieces of chain between.So far it seems to be spreading the piles well.I've seen people use a cedar tree.It should work well it rocky areas.
Your thoughts?
I know it won't dethatch or scratch in seed but he cost wasn't bad until I can afford another chain type

I use semi tires cut in half, cut side down. Lashed together with cable, a few wide and a few deep.. Works good, rugged, and contours to the ground. Safe to drive over, atleast with tires.. Might choke the bush hog pretty quick.

So is cleaning your face apparently.

In a high density rotational gazing program with smooth fields it has a place.. Spreads the manure out and you arent left with a sh*t pile surrounded by tall grass the cattle wont eat the rest of the season.
