Picked this up today.
From what I can read, it was made by C. Gillies
Ring any bells anyone?

I have no idea but we need to get you setup with a video camera so we can see it in action.

I have 2 sections of the spike harrow. Mine look almost identical to yours, but mine pull from a bar instead of chain. Mine are marked Sears and Roebuck. I havnt ysed mine yet. I was planning to yse it for preping a seed bed at the deer lease, but not that the lease burned in the Texas Wildfires, I doubt I will use it. I need to go to the lease and get it though, Thanks for the reminder.

Trying to get a perspective on size. How big is it?
They made those for the bigger tractors as well in multiple sections that you pulled side by side. I think each section was about 4-5 ft wide and the spikes were probably 5-6 inches long.

I have 3 sections of the old Horse drawn Spike Tooth Harrows like MH81 describes. They were leaning up agaist the back fence when I bought this acreage in December.
I can remember seeing Ray Roush pull 4 sections with his H Farmall in the 60's when I was a teen.
Ray owned the farm that was divided up into 8 plots of acreage. I bought 3 plots.
They ar 5 ft wide and I cut down the pipe frame so I could pull one section with my 318. It works very well.
So I have three sections set up with a tounge for each.

Yes, that's about the size.

Won't those be hard for a GT to pull over hard terrain? Or do they tend to ride on top because there is not much weight on the spikes.

Haven't had time to try them yet, but if the GT's don't do it' there is some heavey iron available to do the job.
