With inflation at an all time high, it’s no big surprise that more people are considering putting in a garden. Things are getting tough for hardworking Americans.
And inflation isn’t the only worry.
At the grocery store, it seems that more and more shelves are either empty or stocked very thin. Will we be facing potential food shortages?
Other people desire to a life closer to nature, living a simple more grounded life. Nothing is more satisfying or as delicious as fresh organic food grown from the sweat of your own brow.
So, whether you’re a homesteader or a doomsday prepper, these ATV implements for food plots will help you get things done.
ATV Implements For Food Plots
Neat Attachments Chain Harrow
Depending on the task at hand, this chain harrow can be used tines down or tines up.
When used tines down, this attachment really digs in for aggressive landscaping needs such as breaking up soil or weeding. But, with the tines up it’s perfect for spreading or smoothing topsoil.
This is a larger harrow, over 6′ wide with 64 tines that are 3″ long and 3/8″ in diameter. It weighs 82 lbs, so it’s a substantial piece of equipment.
- Spread manure/dirt
- Break up cow patties
- Level fields
- Cover seed beds
- Driveway/walkway maintenance
- Pulverize top soil
- Riding arena maintenance
Craftsman Dump Cart
If your UTV doesn’t have a tilt dump bed, then a tow behind dump cart is a must have.
It’s one of the most practical ATV implements for food plots and will probably end up being one of your most used pieces of equipment.
Bed measures 32.5″ L x 46″ W x 11″ H and has a 10 cu. ft. / 350 lb load capacity. The 14″ ribbed tires allow the cart to move easily without tearing up the grass.
This cart does need to be assembled. Although it says 30 minutes to assemble, plan on closer to an hour.
- Haul manure
- Move firewood
- Tote building supplies
Groundhog ATV Disc Plow
A disc plow is the same as a disc harrow.
Just like the chain harrow, it’s made to churn up dirt. But, it’s a much more aggressive piece of equipment with 6 blades that can easily churn up even the most packed soil.
The Groundhog weighs 46 lbs and has a “transport mode” to easily move it around. Made to use at speeds between 3-7 mph, it can also be used in reverse.
One great feature that makes this ideal for smaller food plots is that it’s half as wide as a normal plow. This makes it the perfect size for smaller fields/gardens or even walkways.
This disk plow requires a super strong hitch! If you don’t beef up your hitch, your hitch may experience damage.
- Breakup top soil
- Create firebreaks
- Prepare land
- Incorporate soil enhancements
