In his book The Market Gardener, Jean-Martin Fortier recommends the use of power harrows as an alternative to traditional tillage and no-till farming for seedbed preparation and weed control. Power harrows present the advantage of horizontal, minimum tillage. Multiple sets of vertical tines mix and lightly mill the soil at a depth you specify.
Unlike a rotary tiller, the harrow does not invert (turn over) or compact the lower layers of soil. This prevents dormant weed seeds from being brought to the surface and leaves the soil at its original composition, without hardpan formation. The rear roller leaves behind a light mesh pattern that lightly compacts the soil, sealing the surface to prevent moisture loss while providing an optimal bed for receiving seeds. It is great for getting rid of weeds between rows. Any weeds in its path are quickly stirred up and uprooted by the tines.
If you have some rough ground that needs to be good and flat, whether it be a racing track, a rodeo arena, a construction site, or any rugged area that needs to be graded, a power harrow is the perfect solution. Its vertical tines rotate in a horizontal pattern to stir up uneven surfaces and smooth them out. Horizontal motion and super durable tines mean that rocks – even fairly big rocks – are not much of a problem. The light mesh pattern it leaves behind is an attractive finish.
The Ibex power harrow is also the perfect implement for equine arena maintenance. This machine combines the leveling and texturizing tasks of a tiller with the finishing details of a chain drag. With two sizes, one is sure to meet the needs of your operation. It has never been simpler to keep your riding arena in top-notch condition!
