    Welllll I know it's Moline--- a wagon wheel or tractor wheel??? We just bought 100 acres and I found it a few weeks ago and lost it until today, anyone have any idea what exactly it is or maybe what it belongs on. I can tell you it is about 3ft wide but the rest is buried so I couldn't say how tall it is and there's a lot more buried there, it appears to be a huge piece maybe a whole axle???

    Cool!
    I live out in the country out by a lot of old fields and there is a well out in some trees that has been there a really long time... There is a bucket out there is so rusted that if you try to move it will brake.

    My best guess is that it was made by Moline Plow Company:

    Looks like it could go with a tractor they built (?) - google "Moline Universal tractor" and you'll see what it looks like.

    That's my guess, anyway, lol! Very cool find!

    Thanks! I looked at the universal tractors and Im starting to believe that's what it is, we are going to get the dully back there and pull it up. I had no idea our land would end up being a treasure trove! Cant wait to see what we find once we start tilling and building. I will post pics once we get it up and out!

    I wonder how old it is. It looks antique. Yes, please let us know what the rest of it looks like when you pry it up.

    I hope it is in good shape!
