Used this homemade drive grader for the second year and I can say I couldn't have designed it better than what it is. It's just one piece off an old disc but a few trips down the drive and all is level and potholes are filled. The best part is the price, the time to disassemble the disc! Oh yeah, I do put weight on it. :love:

Always wanted to try making one of those angle iron ones that have v-shape in front, and opposite in back to collect and spread the gravel. Looks easy to make one, costly to buy. Yours is similar, but don't you need to make more level, so the ends are flat to ground too? Otherwise think it would make big valley down center the way it is shown here.

I always work from the crown then out. It seeks level with enough passes.

Nice grader! Looks like it works quite well. I've seen free plans for something similar online just can't recall where,I'm thinking they are on one of the bigger ag universities websites.

I didn't alter anything. I just stripped this piece off the old 8 ft. disc I repurposed. You can see this piece in the center photo.

If you were closer, I'd buy the leftovers from you.
