Can you guess what this piece of antique farming equipment is?

Oh, it's not just the city boy thing. Where/when I grew up we grew wheat, barley, and oats...sometimes a little rape seed (canola hadn't been developed yet). We had vegetable gardens to feed ourselves, but except for initial tillage (deep tillage cultivator) and potato planting (old two-share plough) that was done by hand. Anything to do with corn or commercial-level vegetable farming is guess-work to me.

Thanks for this thread. I had no idea what it was and now I know something more about antique farm equipment.

You guys are very welcome for the post of the Go-Devil. I thought you guys would enjoy it that's why I brought it here. It's sure a neat piece of farming history. When these things are gone they're gone for good. When I'm an old man and tired of lookin' at it I'll donate it to a museum if they want it.

Again, you're ALL more than welcome indeed.
