Q: Why don’t you have sections?

A: We believe that the harrow works better as one whole section. However, they can consist of more than one section if the customer requires. Which can be the case with our larger sizes.

Q: Are the teeth hardened?
A: No, but the entire harrow is made from hard steel, 1060 is a high carbon steel. There is no need to harden teeth through heat treatment.

Q: Would it be to severe covering seed?
A: This has been a concern, however if the sloped tooth is used, it does work well covering seed.

Q: Why can’t it pull from the back? (Four Ways)
A: There could be some advantages to having four choices, but the need is very limited. An attempt at that type of design would result in giving up some of the other unique qualities of our harrow.

Q: How do you handle it?
A: Many owners just simply drag it around. If your harrow is fifteen feet or less, it will fit through most gateways and it won’t hurt your laneway or yard. It can be handled by lifting with a tractor loader. Or of course, you could make use of any part of our carrier system.
