Again, this is NOT "collecting" tobaacco leaves!  This is a transplanter.  We used to call it a "tobacco setter."  We used this to set transplanted tobacco plants out in the field in spring.  I would be happy to tell you what all these things are that are mislabeled if you would like :)  My email is starmanva@aol.com.  Thanks!

Actually they are "plugging" the seedlings. Machine would dig a hole, fertilize and water it, and then the two men would set the seedlings.
