Antique Primitive Cast Iron Hunt Helm & Ferris Hay Trolley Carrier, Drop Pulley
This is an original antique cast iron Hunt, Helm & Ferris "Adjustable" swivel hay trolley with the drop pulley. The trolley has some of the original blue paint on one side and pitting and surface rust on all surfaces (typical, considering age and materials), but nothing is cracked or repaired and the entire piece is sturdy and solid. Only 2 of the wheels on top turn (on the blue side) and the drop pulley wheel turns, but the rest are frozen in place. They might be freed with a little work (I haven't tried anything). The bottom section of the trolley swivels as intended and the drop pulley clamps securely in place. There are a few chips in the wheels on the top of the hay trolley, and the trop pulley hook appears to be missing the tip, all visible in the photos.
This is a timber trolley, made to run on a wood barn beam. The trolley measures 20" L at the top x 6 1/4" in diameter where it swivels x 18" H by itself or 24 1/4" H including the drop pulley. It was made to ride on a steel track, not a wood beam. The item "Antique Primitive Cast Iron Hunt Helm & Ferris Hay Trolley Carrier, Drop Pulley" is in sale since Tuesday, July 2, 2019.
