Oh Yes!!
If I could get to drive one of these rather pretty things.
I saw it on a farm in St. John in the Vale where the soil coverage over the slate is not much. I cant imagine what it was used for in these conditions.
Perhaps that is why it isnt being used.
Any thoughts.....

EDIT. A big thanks to Ann (Oliverpants) for telling me its a hay turner.

I think it was used to scrape up the cut grass for hay in the old days, well, that's my guess anyway Grin Carol

Its a hay turner, we used to have one years ago, when you have cut your hay crop, it lays in the field to dry, after a few days you use this machine to lift and turn over the hay to dry the other side. Its a great image, I love the pov. Ann

I had thought 'hay rake' - Ann has explained it rather better. It wouldn't dig into the soil, which after your description seems like a good thing!
Excellent tones here Barbara.

It is indeed a hay turner - having the wheels in a line like this will keep the hay in a line ready for baling! Smile It's lovely to see a record being made of the older farm machinery - a little slice of history!

I took a photo of a plough in the fields once, either last year or the year before. later, I learned that it was stolen Grin.. I thought if the police visited EPZ they could find the photo of the exact plough...Grin

It is a hay rake--- and I once begged our farmer to allow me to cut my own hay-- he grudgingly allowed-- Once around the field and I begged off--- most boring thing I have ever done---

This rake gathers hay and puts in neat little rows---

At least the cab of the tractor was air conditioned and had a radio/tape player.

A well made image of.......!

Does this also get called a woofler, or is that a later piece of machinery for turning the hay? Whatever, it's a cracking shot Barbara and set everyone thinking.
