    Root cutter (pulper) - used to chop up root crops, such as turnips, mangels or fodder beet, for easier consumption by the livestock.

    Bingo!! Winner winner chicken dinner!

    I sure wish I had one, I could grow winter feed for the sheep. I'd need somewhere to store it.....another project....LOL I wish a company would start making these again for people like us who want to get one foot off the Feed Store Train.

    Very cool find, even if only online! Now I'll know what they are if I see one. Maybe nowdags, people just use some of the newer kitchen gadgets? I wonder if some of the Amish communities still use them?

    PS, maybe some if the people here can make you one! We've got some very handy people. It could be a new side business for someone!

    IMG_20180515_211509.jpg Ok I got one... :) Here is a picture of the tool head. The handle (wood pole) is anywhere from 12 to 16 foot long. What is this tools' name and what is it used for?

    I think this one might be hard to identify. So ask questions and I'll answer giving hints along with my answers.
