I was wondering if anyone here built a drag/grader for their driveway.  I know that RedneckComputerGeak (MaineMudMower on here) made one.  I also saw that fearless was thinking about making one.  If you have any pictures they would be greatly appreciated as I am considering making one for the trails and such that I ride on.

What exactly do you expect it to do? Maybe we can all pitch in ideas to make one, just need to know about terrains, like mud, water, rocks, soil, small plants, etc.

What I will use it for would be mostly rutted out dirt trails and driveways.
So, rocks soil/dirt.  Possibly a little mud or water, but nothing much.  Might use it to prepare gardens and stuff of that nature too.

a simple drag box with a hardened steel blade at the front, and a spreader/leveler at the rear would work best for this... I'll try to get you a drawing made up


I can do anything I set my mind to... the impossible just takes me a little longer   Gravel road drag or utility grader? 1222323911

get a pallet, load it up wit rocks or something, wrap a chain around it and go! lol. in all seriousness i would look for a used york rake, then maybe build a small box grader off the back
