Gravel Drive Grader?

Iam interested in getting a box scraper or a blade or something to loosen and grade a large packed down drive and parking area. What do you guys use? What would work the best? will spend some cash on a unit but don't want to get crazy...Any info or opinions would be great, Thanks

I'm all ears on this too.
I have a section of cyclone fence I use for a drag but it has to be weighted evenly.
Works ok but it doesn't want to stay centered behind my atv...

DuraGrade - A1 Box Scraper for Garden Tractors or ATVs and Quads, Requires No Three Point hitch

This is just one of many brands. Get one that has wheels on the back.

I browsed "atv grading box"

I have a big one that is 6' wide on a TN65hp tractor.

Agri-Fab Box Scraper Blade — 42in. Width, Model# 45-02651 | Box Blades | Northern Tool + Equipment

Here's a light version. Northerntool has better ones but they are all 3 pt. hitch models.

I wonder what the difference is between the $1200 compared to the $300... That is a huge price difference so it makes you wonder. There cant be that big of a performance difference, maybe weight but that can be adjusted. I dont know what to do, hate to throw away $300 on junk or $900 extra on something not needed.. decisions decisions... I found a bunch more but wanted to see if anyone had any experience with any. Thanks

From what I can see is the $300 one has no wheels. It is a "weight only" scraper....you wont have much control over the digging capability. The $1200 one has wheels with a 12V electric motor and screw drive that you can control depth with. Not sure how you would even transport the cheap one unless you just pull it backwards.

I made mine with heavy angle iron and expanded metal. I got 2 old engine blocks for weight. Welded chain to both sides and slide it over the ball. I use a nut and bolt to put an angle to the slide. Has worked for me for the last 4 years fine!

A friend of mine had a piece of I beam and then a section of chain link fence attached to the back of the I beam and then a 2X8 on the other end of the chain link, it worked pretty good, but he was pulling it with a truck. I guess if you could find a smaller size piece of scrap I beam it would work behind an ATV. His was from a old house I beam. We used it to smooth out our go cart track before we watered it down.
