If you got a picture, post it up, need some ideas.
Specs on it would be nice too!

What your pulling it behind? Are you looking for something to smooth the field or to cover seed? No pictures but I have used an old gate that had a cattle panel on it(added weight if it needed any) or one I added a panel to it. I have also used a rectangular piece of chain link with a corner post at the top then added a 15' piece of chain as my drag hitch. Behind my disc I have a 10' wide piece of channel steel in a U shape with a 12' piece of 2 3/8" pipe for added weight and piece of 20' chain I used to hitch to the disc (or tractor). If you are only looking to smooth a field over you can take old truck tires tied together in a triangle shape...3 or 6 then attached to the tractor with a piece of chain. I tied them together with chain or you can bolt them together with large washers and bolts.

My plots are in pretty deep sand so I built a lighter drag out of 16 inch light truck tires. Recently planted 12 acres and pulled them behind a 10ft disk and barely let disk touch ground. Helps seal off ground and hold moisture.

Cover seed and a kubota 9540.
It's got a bucket so I can pick the drag up and carry to next plot.

We had one like this except it was 8 foot wide and we pulled it behind a pickup. Took 3 trips, one to bust up the dirt, another to spread seed, and the last to cover the seed.



One like this out of oil field pipe and RR spikes would be a killer.

Just the adjustment handle was sticking out of the dirt and the weeds. 'Have yet to take it for a test spin though.
