Haven’t tried either one but I am in market for a new harrow. Quotes I got before harvest were in the neighbourhood of $30G’s difference between the 2. Guess which one was higher.

Well I looked at the BG twice and it seems like they haven't improved their built to fail hitch. Ours and several used ones all needed reinforcing at the front where the cables lock in. Still the same recycled design, so it is the one that should be priced cheaper haha.

BG 7200. Their XR 770 has the same hitch still. Unless they use better steel now. I didn't think much of it until I looked at some other used units. They either have a new hitch or it has been welded.

Maybe they were all abused. Ours was a used unit too. Have an Elmers now.

The Bourgault will work the same as an Elmer's super-7 because it is pretty much an exact copy, you will have to install the hydraulic down-pressure control and move it between tractors if using multiple power units. The performance of the 7 bar harrow is excellent, hence the copy. I have owned a Super-7 for at least a half dozen years and have no interest in going back to anything with heavier and fewer tines. I am completely satisfied with the harrow and this area is known for having some of the heaviest straw loads in Western Canada.

The bourgault was significantly more when I looked at it. Id buy an Elmers for the difference I was quoted.

Neighbor half mile over bought a super 7 last spring for incorporating fertilizer, swears by it and the field looks real good after it goes past.

He said the BG was significantly more expensive and that they still haven't fixed their hitch or knuckles/locking system from the old ones that used to break despite making them even wider.

If I was going to buy a harrow right now it would be the Elmer's.
