    Default Do arena drags untangle?

    There is an arena drag for sale locally but the photo they sent shows it rolled up.

    Here's the photo:

    How difficult is it to unroll the drag? I'm told its 10' w x 8' L.

    I guess I would need to roll it up anyway to get it home. And they are probably shipped this way too so mabe its normal to roll up a drag for storage space on a farm....

    The link is not working. When I bought mine new it was rolled up and unrolled with no problem. There is a big difference between rolled up properly and tangled. Tangled is probably do able but they are so heavy it is a HUGE PITA to do.

    I keep mine rolled up for storage, and transport, as I don't have a frame to carry it with. If you roll them up nicely, they unroll just as nicely. If it's tangled, it will take a bit more effort. But once it's open, just be good about rolling it back up instead of just tossing it into a pile.

    Okay, I fixed the link.

    Its good to know that if I untangle it and reroll it correctly then it won't be a hassle each time. Providing of course, that I make the purchase. They are asking $150 so if its a lot of work maybe it won't be worth the asking price.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    For 150, it's worth it. Even if it does require a fair amount of 4 letter words to get untangled.

    10 x 8 for $150? I hope you went to get it already! That's the size I have and I paid around $500 for it new. Even if it took a few days to untangle it will be worth it!

    I paid $125 for my 4' x4' drag. Same style, and it untangles pretty easily.

    Anytime. I'm all for enabling the purchase of farm equipment.
