Any information on this would be greatly appreciated, I've googled scufflers, horse drawn hoe's etc etc and cannot find any pictures or information on this.

Hello Dino,
    I have not seen a horse drawn drag or hoe in this format before. If the soil roll at the rear was removed the remaining hoe/drag would be very similar to many of this type including imported Planets. With the rear roll device this becomes something different and makes a superb exhibit. It may not have been produced commercially by a national company but by a local blacksmith and only sold locally.
Lets hope someone can throw more definate light upon this.
Keep On Cultivating

No joy from my collection of horse-drawn books, I'm afraid, but these are getting close. Maybe a local blacksmith had seen the pictures in a catalogue and decided to copy them?

i am probably wrong for saying this but,because it is a very narrow tool say 2 feet wide,could it have been used just before sowing to level out the riggs and furrs left behind when ploughed  ???
Not sure whats wrong. i think we will let it develop

As SK says, it is quite narrow, could it be for hoeing between rows of swede's etc. after hand hoeing and thinning the rows? the crumbler roll on the back would make an effective depth control,
