Mine are daily use machines so don't expect beauty. I bought my 2240 new in 1980:

It really is the ultimate one row precision cultivating tractor. The second photo is the view of the row from the operators seat. You don't have to look around anything, just stright down between your legs. In that photo I was covering seed potatoes:

After I had opened the furrows with my middlebuster on the 2240:

I've got harrows for the front toolbar and harrows, spring cultivators, lay off plows and hiller disks for the rear toolbar. My Dad & I had great fun of me picking on him every year for him not getting hydraulics on the G. He said they cost $7.50 extra and he just couldn't see the expense at the time. His justification was that after looking at a mules ass for 25 years, those levers on the G just about operated themselves at the end of the row. All in ones perspective I guess!

ETA: My G has the optional extra low gear. I can plow out crops 2 inches high and not cover any. Takes a while, but sure beats a gooseneck hoe.

I was going to guess potato planter but didn't see a feeding bin. My old Gravely has a front mount tool holder that does the same operations if you have all the tools for it. You can still find them around. Much smaller scale on the L8 and there wasn't even an option for hydraulics! ;)

I only plant 150 lbs of seed potatoes normally so I just drop the pieces by hand:

If I ever increase volume I'll drop them down an old Holland transplanter I use for planting pumpkins:
