I bought a few ,mounted on my push plow or as some call "highwheel cultivator " I think if you do a search for "sweep" you'll find different version of those

It sure looks like a cultivator sweep. However, being its sleeve hitch, that would center it on the tractor. I guess that it would be used more as a middle buster than to cultivate.

Considering the depth and being center mount, I'd say it is used for just cutting grass roots. Now if you had several of those on a tool bar, you could keep the weeds out between rows.

Great thanks for all the input. I went to an estate sale yesterday and happened to see that in a scrap pile as well as a sleeve hitch potato plow. The family gave them both to me for free

Looks to be home made root buster or "middle buster".  I sure could use that to bust up the hard packed gravel on my driveway!

Also would work to cut a shallow drain ditch next the drive, need to make me one of them.

The business end is  a weed knife for field crop cultivators. It's probably not factory stock as shown.
