The design of the hitch reminds me of what Troybilt used for their furrow. Not sure, yours might be bigger.

Looks homemade for a TB tiller.

It is one of the optional attachments for the big Troybilt tiller. It made the tilling a better job because it broke up the center that in some soils was untouched. The Hiller/Furrower was more popular. Nice find!

I've got one almost identical, but somebody bolted wings to the ends to create some sort of a potato plow.  It came with a load of Brinly implements I bought, but considering the hoard of miscellaneous junk lying around his place, it probably wasn't Brinly.

 

Thanks for posting it.  And thanks to those who identified yours!

What you have is probably a Furrower/Hiller attachment.

Oh, it's not mine... I saw it on CL and wondered if it was for a GT or not.

Looks like some one bolted a larger foot on Trobilt hiller/furrower attachment. Boyscout maybe right, could've been factory plow, I've never seen one like that, but I do have the hiller/furrower with the adjustable wings.

I think it is from the 60s. I just checked my old catalogs that go back to 1983 and its not in them. I probably saw it on an old machine or catalog in the 70s. I'd like to find either type for my old 7hp Horse.

well it has been a good many years, but it looks like the hiller furrower I had on my Gilson rear tine tiller.
