Default Unknown Implement Parts

Does anyone happen to know what these are from? They are iron disc (scoops?) Mounted to wood beams. Some sort of soil turner? The castings say 'Link M.F.G Co' 'Fargo ND' Pat #2159839. My old books and the internet haven't given me any answers, hopefully someone here knows what they are.
Thanks!

Looks like the remnants of a cultivating sled called a Go Devil.

FWurth, I think they are what we call puddlers out west here. They are hooked behind a oneway or discs to form puddles to catch rain water so the newly worked ground won't wash so bad. They rotate to form the puddles.

Thanks. Do you guys know of any pictures of them set up? I tried googling your suggestions but couldn't find anything that looked similar.

1939 Patent no 2150839 Identifies it as an agricultural implement to make ridges and depressions. The similarity of the pictures and the patent drawings are obvious.

Nice unusual find and worth restoring by replacing the wood. Save it!

Thank you for looking into this. That looks like it for sure. Very cool and doesn't look like a very difficult restoration project.

Heins, my THANKS is not showing for you, to THANK YOU! We had some of these in North Dakota and they were no longer used. Nice find.
