Axle found in woods near old mill.

I don't know what it is? But I do not think it is an axle, at least not in the sense of wheels. And I do not think it is automotive. It might be part of a wagon brake shaft (I have one remotely similar?)

It also might be part of a mill stone shaft? That might explain the partial disk on one end that may have held the stone?

Intriguing anyway.

Mikewest, are you serious? Is that the technical term? I can’t tell if you’re joking, but it’s hilarious at any rate. I laughed so had when I saw your post. 

Dad always called it a shit spreader- aka Manure  spreader.  When I was a kid we had 6 Clydesdale's .They were retired horses  from St Louis Budweiser team. Us boys spread a lot of horse shit.

When I was first married we were living in central PA in a town of 300 people and some 15000? Cows. Two different farms (but in the same family) each had a tanker and one was named Republican and the other Democrat and they both joking said which would sling the “stuff” the farthest… of course fresh country air is a very misleading thing, especially first few weeks of spring!
