I ripped the arena yesterday and really found first hand what you were talking about with rippers and horsepower...the arena looked fantastic when I was done. I never really "got it" about footing preparation until I met you guys and learned how this rake works. That ignorance lasted some time...having an arena and tractor now for 16 years. In hindsight, I can't believe I never took the time to try to understand "good footing" on the level you have introduced it to me, but even if I did, I never had the tool to create it. Your rake does just what I was in search of, a tool that I don't have to manipulate, or work, the entire time I'm dragging the arena. A tool that does not continually make the arena more un-level, with inconsistent texture everywhere, as my Red Master Harrow, Roto-Harrow, and numerous "Farm, Construction" type harrows did. In the past, the more I'd try to fix it, the worse it got.
