Like most infield tasks, the right tool depends upon your field conditions and what your goal is. The table below can guide you for selecting the right drag for the type of work you want to accomplish.
▶ Aggressive Renovation: Any soil work that would need deep soil penetration and/or mixing down 2 to 4 inches in the soil profile.
▶ Moderate Renovation: Any soil work that would need shallow soil penetration and/or mixing down 1 to 2 inches in the soil profile.
▶ Day-To-Day Finish Grooming: Strictly grooming of the top 1/2 to 1 inch of infield skin.
