What the heck is this thing?

So, this thing has been sitting at the main farm where I work for years. I've never been able to figure out what it is and what it was for. Its got double wide front tires and the rear wheels do the turning.

I've never heard of 'em. Interesting. I always wondered what this thing was. Looks to be in restorable condition too. Wonder if it could be fixed hah

Thanks guys!

Most likely used to pull a gang of reel mowers. Remember Arnold Palmer riding one in a commercial. Might be worth money to the right person. Something different to take to shows. You may not remember Worthington, but how about Jacobson mowers?

I would bet PUSH a gang of reel mowers with that hitch out front and the combine type rear steering to make really square/tight corners. You're not trying to mow the grass you just ran over with it out front. Could also be a wing gang on each side as well. Definitely a neat rig but finding all the mower parts maybe tough. Could turn it into a mini forklift :D
