    So I found this a few years back on my family farm which dates back to the 1850s or more, I've tried to figure out what it was over the years but I haven't tried too hard I think I may have posted it here last year of the year before so I'm just going to throw it up here again see if maybe anyone knows off hand what it is, it is an antique farm primitive of some sort it appears that it probably hooks up to some oxen or a team of horses maybe some mules and after that I'm not really sure, maybe it's part of some hay bale system or a crane? Like a tow behind crane or maybe theres supposed to be some cultivating blades or something underneath? that I'm not sure, so what do you think? What is it? DELETED BY MODERATOR Cheers!

    Not really sure-did the Amish or other farm communities maybe use catapults for throwing crops (squash, melons, etc ) into wagonz or chopper ?

    The Amish wouldn't waste food in such a frivolous way. ;)

    That "documentation" has nothing to do with the Amish. ;)
