Attaching Chain Harrow to a Tractor

Harrows have multiple uses in landscaping and modern farming. These are usually attached to the back of tractor and are used to cover a large area.

Chain harrows come in different shapes and sizes to fit different purposes. But how much you benefit from the harrow depends on the  way you attach it to the back of your tractor. That is why here are some tips on attaching a chain harrow to the back of your tractor for lawn management and other purposes.

With a Multi Use Attachment

Usually, the attachments you buy for gardening related work only have a specific use. But this is not the case with chain harrows. You can use a chain harrow for different purposes just by attaching it to the back of your tractor. Depending on your work scale, you can buy a large or small chain harrow. Gardens also often use these harrows for landscaping work.

Use With Boom

Chain harrows are great for use in gardens and fields, but moving them across roads can be a headache. That is why you should use the harrow with a boom when fixing it on the back of the tractor. This allows for easy deployment of the harrow whenever you need, and it can also be moved up when not needed, or when you are moving across roads.

Check The Steel Crossbar

Steel crossbar comes handy in keeping the harrow straight when it is mounted on the back of a tractor. If you do not use crossbar, the chain will not go around the corners easily. So, before application, check if the steel bar a bent or damaged.

Move Them at Five Degree Angle

For the most effective, you should make sure that there is five degrees down angles on the tines of the harrow. That is how you can use your chair harrow effectively.
