Do you think my 20 horse riding mower would pull that disc?

The Crown dealer in Salisbury had a pull behind roller with big steel teeth that should work well behind a four wheeler. It should break the ground up fine for food plots. Might even be better in rocky ground than a disc. A 4X4, a chain, and a piece of chain link fence makes a drag to break up the surface and to bury seed. The roller was 3XX$

I need to go out and make a roller I guess, but I keep putting it off! I have the pipe I need. I would just have to make up spikes, drill holes, and do some welding. A spiked roller should not be much harder to pull than the mower deck is when you are cutting.
Out at the farm between Iberia and the lake, we had a set of power disks that could be used to break up just about anything and they pretty much pulled themselves along so they were not real hard to pull. Something like that in a smaller version would be great for foodplot work. A truck rear end with the tubes cut and one shortened axle could be driven with a lawnmower engine to turn the notched disks. Such a set up could be used just about anywhere since the tractor/mower/ATV does not have to pull it. All they have to do is control it.

I just thought I might get out of having to make something. I am as lazy as I am able to be. Take half a land scape tie and nail a piece of chain link to the bottom side. Nail the other piece about 6 feet back and cut off the fencing. Makes a drag that will not kill a 4 wheeler.
