"This harrow is fairly well made and is designed to be pulled by either side with either the tines down or tines up, and, it can be pulled in either of two directions; with tines flipped back and trailing for light scarifying, or, from the other end which flips the tines into a straight down and locked position. I am using this to groom a riding arena and had been using a 5x8 section of chain link fence before. Compared to the chain link fence this tool is night and day difference. It is heavy and not easily moved by one person. You can drag it one end at a time to move it out of the way, but one person is not going to move this easily alone for any distance.
You can add a fence post or some weight to the top of the harrow when the tines are down to give it extra scarifying capability, but be aware you are not going to pull this very easily with anything less than a compact tractor. Certainly too heavy for a garden tractor if you are pulling it on a grass surface to de-thatch.
The packing is excellent and the item arrived by truck freight and you will need either forks on your tractor or the ability to pull it from a full size 18 wheeler trailer when it arrives. I had the YRC terminal hold mine for my pickup because I cannot get a tractor-trailer into my property easily. I picked it up with my 3/4 ton pickup and then pulled it off by hand when I got it back to my farm and un-crated it there.
The rigging on the hooks to pull it in two directions is a little funky using a slide/lock bar/pin, but I'm not sure how else you could make this so it could be pulled in either of two directions.
This is doing what I need from it and since they only let me post two images, I can only show the packaging and assembled harrow and not the results"

Must have for food plots

"I used the drag to prepare about 4 acres of fall food plots. My fields looked like the infield of a professional baseball team. Cleared the dead vegetation. Made for great seed to soil contact. Plants coming up the best in years even though late summer has been very dry.
Also I used it to level off 1/3 of mile of dirt road before I re-seeded. My road looked like a horse racing track - smooth and level."

It works!

"This drag works like it should. It is heavy enough to scar and level the ground. It is heavy steel. It's not too heavy for one person to move around if that person is strong and healthy."
