In one of thee last pics, you can see back the tunnel. It looks as if there is a cutter on the bottom, if that's the case, it's not for planting.
is there a bottom to the tunnel?
Are the "wings" sharpened?
Was it originally to be pulled by a team or a single?
Great looking piece of early farming history! Thanks for the pics and the fun.
Thank you for the great questions! I appreciate everyone's interest!
To answer your questions:
1.) No, the tunnel is without a bottom. What you're seeing there is a shadow in the background. I know it looks like a bottom but no there isn't, it's all open. I apologize, that is somewhat deceiving isn't it.
2.) No, the "wings" are not sharp. The name for the wings are Crusher Boards (I won't say any more as to not give too much away). :smile1:
3.) It was pulled by a team. See the two holes in a bracket just to the inside of the Crusher Boards closest to the runners on each side. A single tree hooked there then went to double trees out to two horses.
