I'm responding to the letter from Mr. Gunderson in the October 2007 issue of Farm Collector. The implement he owns is an Acme pulverizing harrow developed by Duane H. Nash in Millington, N.J., between 1880 and 1899. We have two in our collection. We have used this implement at our living history site, Longstreet Farm. It was used to crush clods of dirt and level the field. By the way, it works pretty well.
