Looks good one of these might help:
either fix it instead of chains make it a rigid mount
or do that and make it so that the pvc pipe will spin on the ground as it goes down a row.

I wouldn't make it a rigid mount. That would just crack and break the PVC. It needs flexibility.

I noticed that you put bolts through the PVC? If those are in contact with the ground, you might end up tearing up the grass, and actually making groves. Just something to look out for.

There are bolts going thru it but I cut them off flush w/ the nut so it won't tear the grass

Nice work! I'd love to see some test pictures of how the lawn looks with and without using it, as a comparison.
