Fellas,

I am looking to build a drag mat soon and was thinking I could use a pallet instead. Would this be too heavy or would it work? Going to have sand delivered this week and do the entire yard, so I need something that will cover large area. I dont want to buy $100 in fence to make the thing. What about chicken wire fence, thats a bit cheaper?

Thoughts?

How big is the lawn? You could order something like this 5x3' drag mat that is probably better suited for the job. Here is a 3x3' that is a little cheaper. A pallet would probably work, but I don't think it will give you the finish you could get with a steel mesh drag mat. The drag mats also roll up nicely for storage... which is important because once you level, you'll probably want to do it again... and again :D. That said, I can understand trying to keep costs down.

Pallet should work just fine - I find drag mats only do so much since they are rather flexible and unless you add some weight to them they don't move much material around
