    We have one similar to the RotoHarrow posted above, but not sure of the name brand offhand. Angled tines that spin to level out the footing as you drive. It works wonderfully on our arena!

    I didn't realize people burned their manure piles... we just spread our manure in the pastures. Perhaps it helps that we use Equine Pine as a stall bedding that makes for less waste than the larger...
