Drag Harrow

Chain Harrow CH

 

What does this do?

 

This is a simple harrow - a chain ‘web’ which is towed across a paddock. On the underside of the harrow are blunt tines which comb through the grass, removing dead grass and scarifying the surface.

Harrows are also useful if you’re seeding a paddock: harrow thoroughly; sow the seed: roll the surface with a Ballast Roller to firm the seed into the soil.

Harrowing is also sometimes used to disperse droppings over a wide area, thus preventing the grass beneath becoming sour and unpalatable, but it is definitely not a substitute for removal of the droppings, because of the implications for pest and parasite control. Advice on harrowing droppings is available from the BHS in their Pasture Managementdocument.

Harrows have a strong ‘tilling’ action and can be used on menages to quickly dress the top surface. For a thorough and professional job for menages please see information on our PG250/T.

Please note that this equipment may require rolling up and transporting in a trailer once you have finished in the paddocks, as dragging the harrow on a hard road surface is not recommended.

 

Why do I need one?

 

In your paddock, using a harrow will remove dead grass. Scarifying the soil surface will stimulate the growth of healthy new grass. If you’re re-seeding, you’ll need to till the soil surface first. All these things will help improve the grazing.

In your menage, the harrow can be used to quickly dress the surface.

 

Where do I use it?

 

Primarily paddocks and any grassed area, also on a menage.

How does it work?

The harrow can be hitched to any suitable vehicle (an ATV is ideal for low ground pressure use, but a 4x4 or small tractor can easily be used) then it is towed around the paddock, ensuring the whole surface of the paddock is covered both lengthways and crossways.
