Hi all,  I was at a local junkyard today dropping off some batteries and saw these 2 attachments sitting by the fence.  They let me take a look at them and I got a couple pics.  The first one looked like a tiller from a distance but when I got closer I believe its an aerator.  From the color I was thinking maybe Bolens but I'm not sure.  It has a long tongue on one end and a short hitch right at the back.  The second one appears to be a factory built unit of an aerator/roller combo.  Part of the hitch and linkage look kind of like Sears to me but again not sure.  I looked them over but didn't see any tags or decals.  Any idea who made them?  I'm probably going to go back and see if I can buy the aerator/roller and can ask about the other one if there's any interest in it.           Stewart

First one looks like a garden tractor size rotary hoe, I've seen larger ones used on farms. The second one looks like it almost hooks to DB walk behind.

I didn't even think about a rotary hoe.  Makes sense to me that it might be that as all the aerators I've seen had straight teeth instead of curved.  I was thinking the same about the second one being for a DB but the hitch has a tube for a bolt instead of a peg but, the DB's were made long enough ago that anyone could have modified it some so anythings possible

Guess I should have looked a little harder for the first one :wallbanging:  Found it here http://gardentractor...ments/?p=342871 Its a  Brinly BB 527 spiker.  Depending on if they'll sell them and how much they want I'll probably grab both of them

What would 2nd pix device do? Teeth to dig up yard and immediately flatten again with roller! Seems counter productive and waste of money and time. I don't understand.

Well they're both safely loaded in the back of my truck now. Everything turns on both of them but they're really stiff . Hopefully its just from the cold or old dry grease and a fresh shot of it will smooth them up. I did find that the drum on the roller has 4 small holes rotted in it from having water left inside but other than that it doesn't look too bad. More pictures to come when I get them unloaded

And here's the pictures.  They're not in too bad a shape considering they've sat outside who knows how long.  A couple little dents and tweaks in the tin work and bracing.  The worst part  appears to be the small holes in the roller drum and the twisted hitch on the same.  The handle on it is so you can put it one way and just have a roller and the other it will aerate and roll at the same time.  And as a bonus I was going through some old paper work and folders from the 80's from Cub Cadet and found an Allied Attachment Guide they put out.  It has all the equipment they tested and said was ok to use without voiding your warranty, and in it is 3 pages of Brinly-Hardy equipment.  The first page has both of these listed plus a different version of the roller/aerator that used plugs instead of knives to aerate with.
