I found this while searching the neighbors back fence row for a plow. He said to drag it out and we'll talk about it. So I used the 'new to me' boom pole to bring it home. It's a cultivator of sorts, 32" wide. Far left hand arm looks to be the missing center one. needs some TLC, but could be a neat cultivator. The handles on top adjust the width and angle.

Looks like it has possibilities.

Probably got a good deal cleaning up the fence row!

Hope you work out a deal! I need neighbors like you have Kenny! :thumbs:

 

That is one interesting cultivator?!!! I have never seen anything like it. It'll be interesting to see if anyone knows what it came off of.

It's an odd puppy! I haven't seen anything like it before!

It might have been a belly mount for a tractor, but I'm almost sure it was horse drawn. Possibly even pony powered.
I would do a little looking to see what it is before you get to modifying.

Nice find, Kenny! I once found a six-foot disc in a fence row, unfortunately, it belonged to my boss. Have fun with the new toy!

Can't be a belly mount as the handles are right there. Only mod would be to put a hitch on it, That could be bolted on. I'll be looking it over some more. Just can't understand the levers adjusting the width.

But first, I have to see what the neighbor wants for it.

I'm betting that it was horse drawn.
 
Adjustable width is for differ row width with different crops.
 
Sure looks like it's a lot easier to adjust than a Brinly cultivator where you have to loosen, move, tighten.
 
Probably wouldn't be too hard to set it up for a sleeve hitch.
 
I guessing that someone at this link can tell you who made it:

Kenny, I would agree that it is a horse drawn cultivator. Not sure of the brand as there were 100's of Co. that built them. Very nice find.

Talked with the neighbor today. Told him I'd give $30 for it, he agreed. So it is mine now. It's much too narrow for GT's, but I'll figure out something.

Kenny, might be a good winter project to find out what it was and what it looked like.

Not in any hurry with it! I just thought it was cool because of the handles sticking up from it! I'll see what I can find on it!
