While my husband, Jon, and I went on a trip to Oleola, S.D., from Gilman, Minn., Jon’s nephew, Ryan Heinen (an assistant manager on a bison preserve), asked us what these two pieces were for since we both grew up on farms. We don’t know! No clue – other than spreader or gatherer. They’re the same machine with teeth that are actually nails. The drawbar is on the right with the box on the rear.
