Box grader track leveller

Has anybody built a box grader with a hopper on the top for sorting out farm tracks ?

I'm looking for some ideas, something that can be dragged along slowly by a tractor and can be filled with a dumper but will also leave the grass in the middle.

george byrely i think his name was made something @40yrs ago to tow behind a trailer, i'm sure it won a silver medal for inventions, basicly a hopper on top of a RSJ frame on skids with an adjustable gap to let the gravel out on back edge

I made one out of h beam, bent h beam at back on a ram so can lift it to put a camber on the lane
can fill with dump trailer
doesnt have teeth for loosening existing lane
very cheap all existing s/hand metal

Got any pictures of this? Looking for inspiration

Also any particular advantages/disadvantages with a towed one vs a 3 pt mounted one? I guess towed are better at going around corners but worse at staying flat on the ground?

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
