    Anybody tried a chain tine harrow for overseeding large areas? If so how were the results. I have 4.5 ac to do and irrigation lines won't allow for aerating. I know the harrow won't aerate but it looks like it could get good seed to soil contact. www.fuerst-bros.com

    Thanks, Finn

    I am looking for a used one , 6' x 8' would be great. I wouldn't know what else except a slit seeder.

    That slit seeder comes in at about $4,500.00 +.

    For working bare ground, this would work excellent. I have one and I use it for several different things. The main purpose I have it for is maintaining the skins on the ball fields.
    If you runn it backwards to dig, it would work well. Sometimes we add a little weight to it, many times, it's unneeded. You may have to go over the area twice, but wouldn't really be that big of a deal, since you can move at good speeds. If you are using it in the more aggressive digging direction (recommended), you would STILL have to watch out for the irrigation heads, because this thing would tear them right out.
