Is this a Trencher?
I’m not expecting this to get published in your magazine; I’m just curious as to what this piece of equipment is that’s been in the woods behind our house ever since we moved here almost 12 years ago – and was probably there for decades before that. The wheel says “National Drill Mfg. Co.” and other pieces have designations like G2, G4 and G10. I tried to Google the name, but couldn’t find anything. I presume it’s farm planting equipment of some kind. I’m not a farming enthusiast, so I’m not familiar with farming equipment or websites/blogs devoted to this kind of thing.
