Scraper

We often accuse clumsy or heavy handed items of having an agricultural design. Well it is true. Agricultural implements are not exactly delicate and decorative.

Here we have a close up of the mud scraper on a large roller, made of sheet steel and showing all the signs of a lifetimes battering. 

My examination of the roller reveals this home made scraper, welded on to the frame, replaced the previous one which broke or wore away. Perhaps the farmer fitted the thickest chunk of metal available to make the thing last longer.




Agricultural design? 

Yes. Absolutely.
