What’s the Purpose of This Unusual Rake?

Does anyone know the purpose/use of this “double rake”? The teeth in front are stationary; the back row moves back and forth. There is no way to control the movement of the back row of teeth. The rake is about 6 feet long. The front row is 25 inches wide and the back row is 1 inch narrower. Thanks!
