Here's one that's got me stumped. I thought stump grinder at first but after a closer look at the working head it looks more like a rotary cultivator. there is a spare track assy in the picture that has a different style track but looks like it would interchange. The engine is missing but the mount has a big fotprint. Anybody have any ideas?

W.A.G.    Looks like it could have been used to level an area prior to concrete pour .

  Other than to look neat I cant seem to see any purpose for it, looks to have been a two man operation whatever is was used for.  The gear boxes would be ahndy to have around.

The 2 sets of handles have me wondering. It almost seems like the double handles would make it a slow speed , high torque tool that took 2 men to stabilize, similar to a post hole digger.

This is where one of those Amazon phones would come in handy.

Bucyrus-Erie made milling/planeing equipment , maybe not this scale . The track would have been necessary to control speed .
