  • What is this

    Anyone have an idea what this is or part of?

    I hope this works as I have never posted a pic here before

      Looks like an early sod cutter.

        I had discussed a sod cutter while we were trying to figure this thing out, but both sod cutters I have seen in real life are a lot heavier than this...this looks like a person could pick it up and move it about, whereas the small sod cutter I saw probably weighed in at over 1000 pounds

          It is a swing out spare tire carrier for a Conastoga.

            I think it's missing about a 1000 pounds that hooks to the tongue . Self-powered sod cutters are very definitely heavy.

              A Cultivator frame

              Could be a cultivator frame. You hang the various cultivator tips off the rin in the appropriate place and let the horse pull it down the row. Wold be a lot stiffer that one made up from straight bar segments.

                Clearly it is the stretching device used for a colonoscopy. :-)

                        Looks like part of an old "Fresno", the predecessor to a road grader.

                              All the sod cutters I know of cut the sod in nice rectangular lengths --- they tried those round cutters back in DP's day but the circles just don't match up correctly no matter how you spin them
