I could use some members help here if you all don't mind. 

 

I am trying to figure out exactly what this implement is/does. My guess so far is that it is some type of skip weeder/ crop thinner for lettuce or spinach. It was attached to a bolens hi-boy in black dirt country. The owner had never seen it used in all his years farming and the owner (his father) had passed away. Any ideas? I will post more pics in a day or two.

I don;'t know, but looks pretty intricate for a very old implement.

I am curious what it would be for too.

Could it be a 4-row furrower used to prepare for planting?

 

The "rakes" appear to throw the soil to one side against the baffle plate.  ....The small angled wheels could compact the soil on the sides of the furrows. 

 

Depending on the speed of the "rakes", there may or may not be much of an interval for thinning corps already planted.

 

I dunno!  .....But you surely come up with some interesting goodies!

That is a Brunner weeder. Somewhere I've got litersture showing that behind a Bolens. Was that the one that was on CL a while back?

A brunner weeder. Never heard of it, but thank you. Any scans of literature would help. Yes this was listed about 3 years on craigslist. It was at an old farm in Pine Island, NY area. The owner had passed and this was up for sale. I picked up three high boys from the same guy and an old wooden box planter/seeder. It was a great find.

There must have been 2 of them then. Check out this thread here from May of last year.  http://gardentractor...re/?hl= brunner  I still haven't come across the piece of literature yet but I'll make a renewed effort. I loaned it out to be copied and I know I got it back but can't seem to figure out where i put it. I may have to borrow the copy to re copy. They also made hand push implements the same.

It's fun to read his postings, isn't it? Never ceases to amaze, he does. He's our all around 2 wheeler genius.

 

Brian has the Bolens down pat, Daniel covers that which has teets or blows black smoke, Bill has us covered on the PC side, and Alan can recite (from memory) all 217 varieties of beer sold within a 50 mile radius of his home. Great little family we got here.

With all these talented personalities on the forum, where do you fit in?
