      While trying to find out what this contraption my dad has owned for years I stumbled up on ur post.. he has a similar machine but his has the steel wheels , it also has a wooden wheel that is fixed around where your knee would be that when you want to ride you simply lift ur leg and it applies pressure to a belt and it goes! You also steer with one front wheel.. your in more of a laying position whil on this particular tool .. he refers to it as a tobacco pruner (picker) , he says its used for pulling leaves while the plants are in the field..
