This was on the back of my Jacobsen tiller. Not sure what to do with it as yet.

Looks like a hiller blade to me.                                                                                                                   Roger.

At the lower points, it is 7-1/2" wide. At the 'wings', it is 9" wide. Just waiting for you all to tell me what it's meant for! So far, it could be used as either!

That's what some call a potato hiller but is more aptly called a "furrower".  Just like the classic Troy Bilt version.

I would say a middle buster too. I couldn't post a pic because of copy rights but here is a good link.

We had one of those mounted under mid section of a IH 140 . It was setup to trip on a spring loaded arm.
During planting time on the farm that pulled the row(furrow) and then we would drop plants in and bury them
by hand.

Kenny,
I built one for my SS12.
Used it to plant taters that year but couldn't use it to dig them as the ground was to hard for me to get deep enough.

Probably something similar to the one Sawdust posted (#7 post). Depends on what heavy metal I can come up with. I just built a 3-point to sleeve adapter. May figure a way to hook it to that.

Kenny maybe you could make the plowframe so you could put a smaller point for breaking hard soil
