    I bet you’re right - hydraulics look set up for that. But rectangular bales maybe, not round. May be be missing a frame or that’s what the chains are for.

    Or it has a functional PTO but no forward gear so hook up your oxen and go mow.
    I'd say it's a boom to lift and move whatever needs lifting and moving. Those chains don't look permanently attached, so I would guess that they're just carried there to be available to grab and hold whatever it is that is being lifted and moved.

    Talk about intrusive vehicles. From mozilla’s review of automakers, wherein none of the 25 makes was seemed satisfactory:

    Nissan earned its second-to-last spot for collecting some of the creepiest categories of data we have ever seen. It’s worth reading the review in full, but you should know it includes your “sexual activity.” Not to be out done, Kia also mentions they can collect information about your “sex life” in their privacy policy. Oh, and six car companies say they can collect your “genetic information” or “genetic characteristics.” Yes, reading car privacy policies is a scary endeavor.

    Based on Lumpy’s suggestion of a hay bail lifter, I’d bet it is an earlier version (or part) of an implement related to this:

    https://maxilator.com/maxilator-farm...accumagrapple/

    A log skidder would use chains but most tractors setup for that operation with a lifter in the rear, so I could see where hooking the chains to bail wires might work too. That’s a lot of hooking and unhooking per lift though, so I suspect there is another piece to it somewhere.

    There are just a ton (many tons literally) of tractor attachments out there loitering in corners of fields and falling down barns. Unfortunately, modern tractor companies have done a good job designing their tractors so the old stuff doesn’t mount on them well - or at all.

    I hope it got a cop motor and a 440 cubic inch power plant. And I hope it’s got cop tires, cop suspension and cop shocks. You know the rest of the story!

    Ha! I was hoping the same. I'm guessing this car had a smaller motor though-there was a sticker on the dash that read: Speed Kills. Drive a Dodge.

    What do they call that then? Not challenging your i.d. just interested in what it actually is called. The black arm still looks like the central arm the hay lifter/loader mounts on. The green box looks like a weight box for a rear PTO mount. A mower is mounted on the rear. Nifty looking wheel weights on the rear wheels.

    Boom Pole.
    The one in the original pic looks to be home made, but really no different than the store bought, just a mite cruder. Kind of a jack of all heavy lifting and moving, handy if you've got a lot of big stuff.

    I've liked the appearance and proportions of the MB 300D since I was a kid. No need for more old cars in my life, but I hope a nice example of a 300D is a nice thing to have. (I don't need to know if it isn't)

    That's pretty. Somebody in my neighborhood recently started driving in and out with something similar that caught my eye the first time.

    My grandfather (mom’s side - dad’s side was Lincoln Continentals) had a Mercedes from the late 60’s with small tail fins and bench seats if my memory is correct. Gray. Diesel. At some point a car dealer convinced him to buy a Peugeot, a car no one in Nashville TN had heard of or knew how to get parts for and so the car never ran well or worked right or did much of anything other than sit in the dealer’s garage waiting for a parts shipment. So as soon as it was fixed, he traded the Peugeot in on a 1970’s Mercedes. Gray. Diesel.
