Does Anyone Recognize this Relic?
Test your knowledge of farm equipment and help identify this mysterious relic!
I live in Ridgefield, Connecticut, and for the past 36 years this farm implement has been partially buried next to one of our stone walls. I finally dug the thing up. I would love to know what it is/was. My best guess is that maybe it was used to drag logs, but it probably wouldn’t have needed the adjustable lever for that. Some missing wood members would have been connected where the bolts stick out.

Editor’s note: Our expert took a look and thinks it might be a one-row corn cultivator, but that does not explain the long steel rods on the piece. Readers?
