I don't remember if I posted this last year or not, If I did, Sorry. It is a pain having to tie the drag chains on the drill up every time you move down the road, so I welded a rod at several places on the back of my JD grain drill to hang them on. Works great. Chris

My neighbor has a drill just like yours. He took the (remaining) chains off and drags one of his tractor tire chains. It sits nicely on that rear board for transport. Quicker than stringing up all those individual chains too.

The drill I have came with a pipe that's laid in front of the foot board and catches the chains. Slow to store, fast to prepare for planting. Your hooks work good too.

I think they help cover the seed. I use them on the disks that follow the tractor tracks on my double disk drill. Harrow after planting?? Never heard of such a thing in this part of the country.

We use either a pair of crushers hooked behind the drill or a 24' spike tooth drag after the drill. Helps to level the feild because we use it for seeding hayfeilds.

Can't say weather or not the chains really do much, but for storage, we put them up over the boards.

we just threw them in the junk, they didn't do anything anyways and we always dragged the grain with a spike tooth even after I bought a press drill
