At the scrap yard today and these were there. The one that looks like a torture tool there were 4 of them. There was 10 Cub Cadets and one Wheel Horse also. Most were complete and he was asking me $2500 for all but I buy from him a lot and I know how quick he will cut his prices but he will not part them out.

First one is a planter, second one I'm drawing a blank on but one of our Gardeners/Farmers should know

I like the looks of that seeder, I see bell cranks for trip dropping the seed. The other one is a rotary hoe unit, most likely for a cultivator, judging by its narrow width and the heavy arm on the front.

Any thoughts of a price on them? There were 4 of the cultivators if I remember correctly.

The seeder looks like a old part from a corn planter like a press wheel and fertilizer applicator. Could be wrong

Corn, cotton and soy beans have always been main crops in this area. Most likely corn.

President Obama once said: "Just because we have the best hammer does not mean that every problem is a nail."  Just because we love GTs doesn't mean everything in a scrapyard is GT related.

They are for a tractor and not a GT. He doesn't intend on scraping them as they are in the for sale building of scrap stuff. I go to a few shows and thought someone there may want them but I don't want to overpay.

The second photo is a rotary hoe unit. They were used to break up the hard ground from rain after planting but before the soybeans spouts. Beans had a hard time coming up thru the hard top layer of the soil from hard rains. these unit would break up the layer without hurting the plants and seeds.

those rotary hoe discs could be a work of art. My grand daughter used to ride home on a bus with a friend and I would pick her up on my way home from work. That house must have had 100 of those disks nailed to the wall on the outside.
