Most trolleys that come into our shop require a lot of work to restore. This one, however, came out of a barn with a very good roof, where the trolley never spent any time on the ground. Its incredible condition shows itself most obviously in the remaining amount of original paint still on it. This antique Myers Unloader, made by F.In Ashland, Ohio, required only disassembly, cleaning, a little lube, and a light coat of oil and wax to preserve its incredible patina. As you can see in the photos, showing both sides from various angles, this trolley was patented on May 12, 1903.
It is likely 100-or-so years old. Everything works exactly as it should. It is a display-quality piece that could be put right back to work and not skip a beat! It is complete with drop pulley and rope as shown in the photos.
You'll be hard-pressed to ever find one like it in better shape. It rolls and displays nicely supported on a pair of common 3/4 angle iron, available at any hardware store (shown here for display purposes, not included in the sale).
This was a popular hay trolley back in the first half of the 1900s -- a testament to its effectiveness and durability. It comes complete, including the rope shown in photos, and drop pulley. Height of trolley only: 10.5. Height of trolley with drop pulley in its up and locked position: 16. Weight with drop pulley and rope: 23.4 pounds.
