I.D on this appliance

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, any idea what the item in my photo is? Mole plow?

 

I picked it up ages ago thinking it could be modded and used with the 3 point linkage to lift timber.

 

Cheers

The big thing on the left that isn't attached is a subsoiler.

The bits that are attached look to be for removing the compaction of tramlines/wheelmarks.

The other non attached looks a mixture of the two.

Put the third one on and it would be a general purpose ripper, not wide enough on its own to be for tramlines surely.

Cat 1 inward facing links would suggest use on a compact tractor. Certainly to wide for tramlines on my little Holder

Mole plough/chisel plough for helping break subsoil for drainage.

 

I would say its been cut down as that's pretty narrow etc and you wouldn't use 4 tines on something that size/width and they spare tines/tips have come from somewhere.

 

Sometimes they get cut by farmers and 1 tine left and modified to lay alkathene water pipe simply by making a fitting down the rear of the tine and they work quite well. Could as already been said diy'd for a compact tractor/market gardener.

Thanks for the reply's chaps. It's definitely for the linkage on a compact tractor. Nice to know the correct use for it, it's great for moving timber and grubbing out roots too!
