An infield machine is the way to go, if you have the money. A good used one will run $6k.

On the cheap, build a nail drag. Will cost maybe $100 in materials, easy to do. Just google nail drag and you'll find some plans. A good mat drag is a wise investment. Around $100 depending on size. You can find them on the net, and I know you can get them at Lesco/JDL too, save on shipping.

The Taylorway Infield and track renovator is a Pro machine that rakes,grades,levels and sweeps all in one pass for less than $5000. We use ours on running tracks, ballfields and even park paths.

You cant beat a steel drag matt or a cocoa mat just try not to use the cocoa mat with it wet it will tend to build up mud on it and not leave a smooth finish. Just remember to stay about 1 foot away from the gras edge or you will start to build up a lip and that can stop the water draining off if you have a decent grade. You can flip a good landscape rake over and use the back to level the area that you did not get with the drag matt.
