Best way to build a "drag" or harrow

What do you guys use to drag your fields and split up the poo? I need some ideas! Pics would be nice too!

I pull an old box spring behind the tractor or the truck with a couple of cement blocks on it for weight.

A chunk of chain link fence can also work.

I've seen all kinds of handmade ones....even ones made out of pieces of chain link fence attached to a 4x4 that has a chain to pull it with. I've also seen tires strung together used as a harrow. I have a smaller-ish harrow that I can pull behind our rhino. works great in our arena too!

I use the chain link. But I tie a pallet on top with some cinder blocks for weight. Works great. I dump my manure in my work area. Keeps the footing soft for them.

I use chain link fence, frame it and throw a few cinder blocks on it for weight, it breaks up all the manure and spreads evenly and doesn't tear up the pastures.
