    The second picture looks very similar to a blackstone's potato digger that was used here. This picture is not too clear but looks to be a later version of yours. It is listed in the 1937 farm auction where my great uncle had to purchase it from his father and again my father had it as an ingoing on the tenancy. Photo 1960's

  4. I would say it was pulled by horses so very slow moving forward.. there is a big gear on the land wheel which is driving a small wheel so the mechanism would be going fast not much wear on the wheel lugs.. probably took a lot of pulling with that gearing do not scrap it
