This is an very old crop harvester used to harvest oats and wheat on the farm. This is a picture of a newer one that is also "old"

Can someone tell me what was used for? I am thinking it may have been used when setting out plants and a specific amount of water was used per transplant!

If you scroll down to near the end on this link, you will see that most likely this is an old single-wheeled water barrow sprayer.

What a neat find!!

If you are going to sell it, it will be a challenge to find a comparable to help you value it (at least where I am there aren't too many of these around).

If you want to sell, talk to a good antique dealer in your town and get the owner's opinion on value where you are. It would be a really neat statement piece for a garden or porch!!

Thanks for sharing it!

I think you have horse wagon parts, at least that is what I think they are called. They were used to get horses hooked up to pull wagons or the tilling devices.

If you are going to sell them, see if you have an auction house in your area that specializes in old things like this--and you will have a better chance of selling it. There is one about an hour from me (at least I think they are still there) and they specialize in old horse and farm stuff. Some people make nice money from these old items in this type of setting/

What you have is a vintage Hay rake attachment.
There were a lost of different styles/types and I'm not familiar with the years these were used but some are still being used today as newer hay rakes are very expensive.

You can post your question on either of the following sites but you will probably have to become a member first. Membership is free so it is no problem.

www.yesterdaystractors.com/.../boards.cgi

They may not be able to help you if you do not post better pictures.
Pictures should be as uncluttered as possible - on flat plain board/concrete.
At least 2 full pictures front and side.
Several closeup pictures of tiller from all angles.
Picture of any numbers or letters and where they are located.
Add measurements - width.
