To prepare your yard for seeding, there are many things you can do, and one of the most cost effective ways to prepare your yard is a yard pulverizer. A yard pulverizer breaks up the top layer of dirt, redistributes the dirt to fill in low areas, and breaking up dirt clods. The yard pulverizer is powered by the motion of the tractor, and requires no PTO or hydraulic flow, it is simply a well designed attachment that can turn your yard into a beautiful, smooth place to sow your grass.
A yard pulverizer is designed with the destruction and realigning of your yard in mind, the first part of the yard pulverizer that will come into contact with your lawn as you drive is the ripper teeth. The ripper teeth are 1/2" thick, 2" wide, and penetrate into the ground approximately 5". The shanks are placed in two separate rows, one row on the front, and the second row is on the back. The shanks are spaced at 4 1/4" on both rows of teeth, with the second row being offset by 2 1/2" creating a rip pattern of 2" rows across the entire width of your working area. By using solid steel teeth to break up the surface of your yard at a depth of 5", it can be reshaped into a smooth flowing yard much like the fairways of a golf course.
The shanks are mounted on to a 10" wide I-beam, that weighs 33 lbs. per foot, that's 132 lbs of beam before adding any of the other components. This solid steel construction not only adds weight, but strength also. The I-beam acts much like a box blade after the ground has been ripped up, it pushes the loose dirt allowing a small amount to pass under the bottom to create an even smooth look and fill in any low spots.
The yard pulverizer has a spring loaded roller on the back section that finishes up the job, it has many 1" pegs that will easily break up any dirt clods that are left over from the tines and beam. The weight of the roller is almost enough to guarantee the hardest clods to be broken, but the compression spring adds a little extra power to ensure the job is done right. The roller is mounted on two 1" greasable pillar block bearings for smooth operation. The spikes on the rear roller will put all the weight and added pressure on any clods that in crosses piercing and breaking them on contact to keep lumps out of the yard.
After the pulverizer has covered your yard, you will have a 5" deep soft, smooth area ready for seeding. The dirt will be broken up, and ready to grow you the beautiful lawn that you have worked hard to get. The yard pulverizer effectively does the job of breaking up the ground, leveling it out, and breaking up any clods, all in a single pass, saving you time and money.
