What Is It? Game 146

Hello Neatoramanauts! It's time for this week's What Is It? game. Can you tell us what the function of the strange contraption above?

Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please. You can, however, enter as many as you'd like. Write no URL or web links - let others play.

Two prizes as usual: the first correct guess and the funniest yet wrong guess will win T-shirts from the NeatoShop. You must write your choice of T-shirt wth your entry, otherwise you forfeit the prize. (May we suggest the NeatoShop's lines of Science T-Shirts and Funny T-Shirts?). You have until the right answer is revealed at our partner blog.

For more clues, be sure to visit the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update 7/26/10 - the answer is: A hand held crop duster, used to apply dry chemicals including lime and insecticides to growing plants. Harley got it right first, but chose the wrong prize. Congratulations to Professor who submitted "antique hand-cranked Dust-Buster."

I just got one of these in Prince Edward Island Canada. It's identical. Does anyone know more about them?

For Wiliamsmith6: the same place had a husker and kernel remover.

I only read the last entry so mine is probably already in them. I'll say it's a test model of the first Dust Buster. Even if it is obviously wrong. I don't wear T shirts w/o pockets. Originally due to needing a place for my cigarettes. Since quiting nearly 10 years ago I now need somewhere for my reading glasses. Soooooo in case I do win please donate to a local charity.

rawr_im_a_taco - 2 things. It's Amish and they DO use electricity. Methinks you could read up on something before you state things as facts.

(got the second part of the request down pat)
