Took this pic yesterday at the Berryville, Va. steam show. Anyone have any ideas what this was used for?

Well, with that plow blade on the back and no front blade, I'd say it was for turning over soil in a bog?  Wouldn't want to be on a side hill with that thing! :D

High clearance crawler tractor for digging rows of trees and shrubs.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

Yes. It's a tree digger.

My guess is it's a cable layer of some type.  Look at the front end.  Looks like a cable reel carrier.

It's definitely a tree digger. They have been discussed at length over on the IH forum.
