Brumbaugh clue

Our next tool is a rather large one found in Omaha, Nebraska. Curt Brumbaugh’s son brought the tool to his attention.

This is a true mystery as the Brumbaughs from Red Cloud, Nebraska have no idea what the tool may be.

It stands a bit taller than the bottom of a car and has a cone-shaped attachment.

If you have any ideas for what this tool is and how it was used, send them in. All guesses are welcome!
