This red (some are blue) Paladin attachment is made by Hardings, Inc. They are not common farm machinery on every farm. They serve special purposes for dragging, or land clearing, – sometimes used for construction, or even mining and municipal market segments.
I see this particular model has been partly painted blue underneath. I can only surmise that some previous owner, knowing that the Paladin company paints most of their machinery blue, wanted to bring this model in line with that policy.
