Not an attachment I've seen before. Not even sure what it attaches to. Any ideas?

I agree, it looks like a way over complex hay rake to me.

Not sure I've seen anything like that.  What would a peanut harvester look like?

It's certainly not a hay rake, and you may have it nailed with the peanut thing!

I think it for making a trench, so that they could plant something in the trench later

I was going to guess some sort of multiple rake/windrow maker. Looks like quite the contraption whatever it is.

I believe that is for thinning row crops. When you plants beets or greens for a feed crop you plant the small seed on the row hills rather thickly spaced. And as they grow, to induce good plant health you remove the plants to have one every 12" or 18". This machine will rip out the extra plants in the row with the combs.
If it were for harvesting crops, I think it would have a collection system.

That's my guess!

Thanks MH81 for grabbing the image.  Looks like it was pulled.

 

I like the peanut harvest idea best.  Clearly not a Bolens attachment, but interesting either way.

Glad I got it when I did.

We studied it for a while today. Whatever it is, it has springs that give the "forks" the ability to flex. It then shoots the whatever over to the tin panels and they fall into a row.
Onion harvester, peanut harvester, etc seem plausible. It may also be some kind of failed bean harvester or whatnot.

One thing seems certain, it was actually manufactured by the Goldberg corp and designed by their head engineer, Rube.
