I made this to soften the surface of my track used to train race horses.

In use a drag is is connected to the two attachment rings in the center to smoth the track surface after the scarafiers have loosened the dirt

a scratch harrow

a scratch harrow connected with 2 lengths of chain

I use this rig to loosen the surface to 4" in depth

Its capable of 12" depth

the soil on my track has a high clay content and becomes rather hard if not regularly worked

That “Soil-Breaker-Upper” looks like the way to loosen dirt. I would assume those are shanks out of a box scraper. Where did you get those? Do I have to go to an implement dealer or do they have them somewhere like Rural King or TSC?

Side question, I noticed in the pic you have the fold down ROPS. It probably is farther away than it looks but have you (or anyone else for that matter) ever had a problem with the top link hitting when you raise the 3PT? My old 770 doesn't have that option, but thought I was curious.
