That is neat. I've never seen one. What is the rear hitch for? How is the power transmitted- belts, chains? I assume no gearbox.

The power is transferred through belts, and they were put on new the last time the seller and his dad used it. In the brochure I have for it, there is a picture of a disk being pulled behind the shredder. IF I can find the brochure, I will post that picture. Otherwise, I don't know what else you would have pulled behind it. I have another one of these New Idea shredders but it is missing a PTO piece so it will be my parts machine. My dad had one back in the mid 1980s and I would chop stalks as a kid for him. We had a mounted corn picker so there was more material to chop. In my pictures I was out on a corn field being combined. I bought this for my corn picking day on the farm to chop up the headlands and for an opportunity for an old-timer to jump on a tractor and run around the field.

A hitch for a disk makes sense.

My first thought was the green frame might be a safety guard to keep people & animals some distance from the rotating knives, yet be open enough to not resrict stalk flow.

Maybe pull a rake behind to windrow the cut stalks for baling? I've seen that ad with the disk behind the shredder somewhere too.
