At first, I thought it was for sleeve hitch, but wouldnt the front would have to have a wobble joint of some kind to allow up and down flex at the hitch. Like the brinly planters have.

Really neat concept and it would make it easier to get consistent results.

I think the whole thing lifts with the hitch, the wheel just keeps it at the same depth. Think it may be a Bolens?

The colors sure look right for an older Bolens.

ARPS was one of the "Allied Manufacturers".  Might be possible that they built and painted if for Bolens to market.
