Hi Juha,

Hope your well! Thought it might be the "Goulash cannon" at first....Next guess a device for heating aircraft engines during winter?

Hi Robb,

Everything OK here :)
About the carts...
The funnel looking thing is actually a pole, sort of an axle.
There is no engine of other heat producing device inside.
