This Absolutely Humongous Plow I Came Across Middle of a Forest.

class="u-nolinkc" href="">Lol . .. It was done like this.
Babe the Blue Ox.
>I can't imagine class="u-nolinkc" href="">what kind of machine could've been feasible for the task Others have likely provided the read answer, but class="u-nolinkc" href="">a trivial , slightly related thought. Back in the days of early steam traction engines, there was class="u-nolinkc" href="">a way of plowing where they would have two engines , one on either side of class="u-nolinkc" href="">a field - the plow would be on chains between the two engines, and they'd plow class="u-nolinkc" href="">a strip, turn the plow and have the other engine pull it back. class="u-nolinkc" href="">I believe class="u-nolinkc" href="">this stopped the very heavy engines from compressing the soil too much.

What You Really Think

If there's a local museum dedicated to that stuff, you might mention to them where you found this thing.

Does it happen to be around Vapos peatbog somewhere in Pirkanmaa, Finland? Remember seeing one like that there. Pretty sure it's peat production related or then for making ditches through the forestland to day out the swampy land.

No way, it's the anchor from an alien spaceship. They had to leave in a hurry, and cut themselves free.

3 hours later 4.5k upvotes and the answer 48 oxen is the kind of "machine" & a broken archive site.

Something big and probably diesel powered.

Can you get some more photos of it? All sides, inside, something for scale, longshot off all of it?

It might have been pulled by something that didnt go into the swamp, using cables to draw the plow towards the traction engine.

First for scale.

Paul Bunyan and his Big Blue Ox, of course!

Wow...after jumping here from the push no trig notification, I was planning to make a joke about how or why this could possibly have happened or how unlikely it is that it this thing ended up in the middle of the woods, because I assumed there was no way to know the actual reason... But then I got here and youve already determined and explained the reality, and I don't have to wonder at all, you rock! Thanks!

That name again?

>Plow King There is no plow level.

Oh it could plow me, king.

Tsar Plow.

>In Finland, similar plows like this were used to cut ditches into swamps and bogs to drain them back in the 50s. Here's some links to a similar style plow right side up and an old photo of one being pulled behind a tractor. In Germany they pulled the plow across while the steam engines stayed at the side.

It's big and heavy and only useful for one specific task. Once you've done the job it was for, nobody wants to spend the time and effort to move it because nobody needs it.

One time I saw an derelict RV or camper at the ass end of a road that the wilderness had reclaimed. I noped out of there.

They made the rest into swords.

OP's mom left it there.

Nailed it.

I scrolled too far down for this joke. People are too busy trying to learn to appreciate true art.

That video is frustrating. I don't care about watching the winch spool, I want to see the trencher doing it's work.

Banana: --- Plow: --------------* *( * not to scale)*.

Typical indoor floor to ceiling height is 7-8 ft. if you can visualize it from inside your home, it'd be a few feet taller than your bedroom ceiling.

Ain't no bananas round these parts, ya hear.

I'm lost without the banana.

OP ]comment](): >I've heard about this since I was a kid and finally got around to check it out. But naturally ate all bananas before got there!

I though it was supposed to be plantains..

Hey, that sounds interesting - can you send a link? It for sure was *made* to be plow, but I'm not sure if it was ever successfully used, or was this one of those things where the 'inventor' planned to cross the bridge of how to pull this thing when he gets there. And then it was left to its place of creation due to being too heavy. I've heard about this since I was a kid and finally got around to check it out. But naturally ate all bananas before got there!

2d8 1d6 seems a bit low for this weapon's damage...

Seems possible would need to of the part that goes off screen to the right to be certain though. Also still leaves the question of how the heck it wound up there.

Just watched it yesterday and thought this immediately.

!remindme 3 days.

Props made out of solid steel?

This is a birch forest.

Looks like the remains of Geonisis Fighter.

In the middle of a forest...

Don't know you at all, you could be brilliant as far as I know.

I believe youre right and also that theres a second side dug into the ground we cant see , nearly all anchors have 2 prongs.

Got my magnums, a wad of cash, I'm ready to plow!

I'm here for the plow! Got my magnums and a wad of cash.
