See the link below. Final drive housing with attachments. Can anyone identify purpose? Perhaps the remains of some sort of mine plow?

I would too. It's funny that one doesn't usually see the bottom of the final drive housing.

I wonder if they could be the attachments for the spade/dozer blade of an M74 ARV.
They sure look like the ones in the pics I've seen.

Bottoms up, gents!
Frankly, the M74 is the only Sherman variant I know of that had the blade fitted directly to the transmission cover.
