Holland, Indiana (SW IN)
Had one for 10 years a 35' one only use it as a backup now
BUT used it today on 150 acres worked pretty good nice and smooth
Pulled it with a Cat 45 track tractor---about 6 MPH

Probaby worth $7- $10 K----- much rather use it than a Disc
Set the front blades pretty straight --go 3" deep levels and smooths
DON'T use it deep and don't run the front any more angled than 2 nd hole

AND don't choke the beaters up if you see any choking get it out before you choke it all up BTDT
Only chokes in very wet or very gummy type soils

Dan

To add I think a Reel Disk would be good for what you are wanting AND cheap
