    Any Guesses To What This Is?

    I picked this up while down in the states for my model R. It was free so I didn't really hesitate, the previous collector said it was tractor drawn, but while doing a quick search I found an identical one that was horse drawn. I'm wondering if it was converted for tractor drawn?? I am going to fab up a hitch and take off the wheels and plows and sandblast it all and paint then put behind my R.

    Anybody got anything on this??

    If you look closely you can see a rope pull hand lift that was designed to be pulled behind a tractor. (I notice the Amish people hook them behind a riding sulky and pull the plough with horses.) Your JDR will easily pull 4-5 furrows and gallop away with it.

    I was wondering if the handles where turned around, that answers my question though! I know my R would be capable of much more, but I didn't really want to look much longer, I've got a combine and truck that also need restoring, so I just wanted to find something simple to complete the R project. I also wanted something with a story behind it, this fits the build

    Someday down the road If I find something bigger I will probably get it. Let me tell you though, this thing is not light. When we threw it on the front of our stepdeck it took 4 guys all they had to move it.
