Help in Identifying This!

Nothing to do with DB, but wondered if anyone can help in identifying this piece of kit. It belongs to a friend of mine who found it under a muck heap at a small holding he's just bought. He's all set to send it to the scrapers, but I said he might have something of value to a collector - if he knew what it was!

I cant remember the name, but Im fairly sure it was made (or imported) by Bamfords of Uttoxetter, it was a competitor to the more popular Fahr Centipede.

It may be made by Kuhn and Sold by Bamfords.

Does it turn? The drive knuckles were prone to wear on Centipedes.

Looks like a Bamfords 'Star' hay turner.

We used to have one of these and it was called grandads tedder ,worked realy well until it was mounted on a jd 4255 (140 hp )and it lost all but 1 rotor in 5 days ,well thats contracting for you . :wink:
Grandad was needless to say not happy at all and no one got to borrow any of his kit again, shame realy as the pristeen ford 4000 would have made a much better scraper tractor than the db 1200 . :lol:
