    Default Un-even Arena/Spin Groomer Rental?

    Does anyone in the NoVA/Eastern WV area know if there are places to rent a spin groomer?

    I have a bluestone ring that needs help. Before I got there, the BO's decided to take a leveler to it in attempts to remove the weeds. Needless to say, all this did was removed bluestone and now there is piles all around the outside.

    I am going to use the front loader to put it back in shallow spots, but am trying to get a spin groomer to level it out. I have a regular chain harrow, but I don't think that will do the trick.

    Anyone have any other suggestions on fixing it? Do places even rent spin groomers?

    TIA!

    Maybe a york rake? Saw some implement rental places in PA a couple months ago but not sure who around here who have any for rent. There are some auction/clearance places that sell equipment though... might find one cheap enough to make rental unattractive.... heck, valley trader & martinsburg craigslist

    Belg, that's a great idea. Plus it may get some of the weeds still in there as well. I will check out martinsburg CL. If I can find an old, rusty cheap one--that may be the way to go.

    Here's one to get you started: http://harrisburg.craigslist.org/grd/2339104387.htmlNot cheap, but also basically brand new. Winchester equipment sells used stuff. the Jefferson Rentals place in ranson may also rent one/have something. Southern States may have some ideas too
