Hi!---I am Sonny.I had to give up farming because of spinal degradation and 3 operations left me in poor condition. I currently grow a giant garden to take the ole' mind off the pain and wife and I store, can ,and freeze garden produce for winter use. I was on the farm my whole life and having to quit was a shock. I still have the equipment and its all old stuff (quite of an assortment)(pre-1980's, some from the 50's & 60's)
I have made several smaller implements to help me garden too(I cut up old stuff and make whatever I need in the line of garden sized machinery.

This is a pic of me leaning on the cart of 50+ pound each squash that we grew last year. (patch total was over 11,000 pounds. thanks; sonny
