Have no idea what this was used for, someone found it in the grass and stood it up. It had probably been laying in the grass for 50 years.

Don't know, it's all metal. Whatever it is it looks kind of cool, at least while it lasts.

Its a Rake wheel.... for Hay or straw It would Have Tines on it that would be offset and rake and turn as it was pulled. The holes in the center part meant it was one of the middle wheels because it would have had a gear bolted to it to turn the other wheels in unison. If you look close you can see where The tines were welded on...


Gear List :EOS 70D ,Sigma 50mm 1.4,Tamron 18-270, Canon 18-55,Canon HFM31,Canon SX280HS,Olympus E-10 ,

That makes perfect sense, the land this is on used to be farmland. Till the gubment took it to build an airfield.
