    Default Old-timey farm equipment

    Does anybody make old school (1930s / 1940s) farm equipment? Not looking for anything in particular, just something non-huge from the metal wheels & spokes days. EG -



    Thanks!

    Thanks, but that's all too modern. Anything with rubber tires is out the door (see the above picture). Maybe dial my suggestion back to the 1920s / 1930s?

    Marks MetallModelClassics has offered a number of horse drawn farm implements in the past. However, the domain shows as "for sale" when I clicked on my link to their home page.

    If you look at Markus Schiavo's encyclopedia (http://spur-n.com/) you can get an idea of what has been available. Marks' 9706 was a 3-bottom plow, similar to the 2-bottom plow in your picture. Of course actually finding one for sale somewhere will probably be a challenge.

    If all you need is something with spoke wheels, Modelbahn Union might have something you could use. https://www.en.dm-toys.de/liste/kate...teller/MU.html

    Thanks, Carter. The business I'm modeling mainly dealt in what looks to be manure spreaders and some of that DM Toys stuff looks like it could be good foobie fodder.

    Oh cool, I found a picture of the exact thing the business in question made/sold. Evidently it's some sort of hay loader -
