I'm sure the weight of it helps a lot! Ground looks real smooth!

What all did you use, just the blade or the ripper too? Nice flat ground now!

I was surprised how well it worked!

Should have taken pics of the mess I had in front of me

Those ripper teeth work great to loosen the settled soil

Yes thats what impressed me, not once did the wheels spin with the ripper teeth or when I was pulling a full load in the box
