They were used to make “silage” I think . Cutting up pumpkins and other
gourds to feed to pigs and other livestock.

Thanks to you both. The only one I've seen was considerably smaller - a 
one-hand model - and I've wondered what it was, long after I sold it. 
Maybe it was meant for preparing feed for piglets! ;-)

I think one would work great in my compost pail.  Chop up the stuff if I hadn’t
gotten around to it before putting it out.  I collect in a pail out front, then
dump that in the compost bin out back.  Over the hill potatoes and squash would
subcumb to it nicely :0)
