Overview

The Maxi-Harrow’s (Rotary) unique tines link together to form an immensely  strong and flexible chain to remove buried residue from the soil and level the ground.

For most applications, one pass with the Maxi-Harrow   prepares a seedbed on minimum-till land, even where surface residue is heavy. In   wet years, the Maxi-Harrow has been used successfully for seeding wheat, barley,   soybeans and many other crops. In dry years, the Maxi-Harrow helps maintain   moisture by creating mulch on the soil surface – effectively sealing moisture   in.

Adjust the angle of aggression according to what  you want to accomplish. When set correctly, it levels the ground and eliminates  planter bounce.
