i'd go with the spikes. if you went with the disks, you'd need axles ($), hubs ($), bearings ($), fittings ($), and more material in general. it's also more things that could go wrong.

besides that, there are no real moving parts in the 4th picture.

I've seen ATV implements for fairly reasonable prices in the Harbor Freight Tools and Northern tools catalogs , both have websites . An implement that has skimpy construction can usually be beefed up fairly cheaply if you have access to a welding machine . Weight can also be added this way .

well I got the base of it made today before coming to work.....

it consists of 2 pieces of 1'4" thick 6" C channel cut to a 36" length and welded to each other back to back..............

this gived it some extra weight plus a place to add removable weights as well

I think I have most of the plate to make the spikes to dig into the ground...... might have to get some 2"x2" tubing to do the hithc, other part of frame and for the wheels to attatch too
