COMPLETE antique HHF Steel Track Hay Trolley light setup. Includes completely restored trolley and center drop pulley, a length of original barn rope, a section of original track with two hangers, and two vintage style cage lights with Edison style bulbs.
The trolley is a Hunt, Helm, & Ferris Steel Track model. These trolleys were made in Harvard, Illinois and carry dates of April 28, 1885 and October 26, 1886. This unit was completely disassembled, cleaned, painted, lettered, and carefully reassembled.
All the track wheels and rope sheaves turn freely with no excess slop, the head rotates easily, and the locking mechanism for the drop pulley operates properly. The very end of the hook on the center drop pulley was broken off sometime during it's 130 plus year life.This doesn't affect the function of the pulley and I don't think it detracts from the visual beauty of the setup. I just wanted to make sure it was noted so it wouldn't be a surprise to the purchaser. The lights are 60 watt units ready to be hardwired in and come complete with hardware and canopies. The bulbs are early Edison style. The cords on the lights are easily adjustable up to about 50 inches.
This is a great looking setup complete and ready to hang. Please see the pictures for details (both sides are pictured). The steel track measures about 30 inches long and the height from the top of the hangers to the bottom of the lights is about 25 inches. This height can be adjusted by raising or lowering the lights and the center drop pulley.The whole unit comes in at about 44 pounds. Proper hanging and wiring is critical and should be handled accordingly. This setup would make a great gift for someone (or for yourself). I have other units available or would be glad to create something special for you, just contact me and let me know what you need.
