Antique Hay Trolley - Carrier - Unloader. PERI Beam Trolley with center drop pulley.
These just don't show up very often so don't let this one get away! This is a nice size for display or use. Unloader is approximately 16" x 15" x 7. Center drop pulley is approximately 12" x 3" x 6-1/2.
Condition issues that I see: trolley is twisted, one of the rollers has edge broke, center swivel part is stuck, and two of the wheels are stuck, there is all-over surface rust. All of these things are shown in pictures. With that said, this is still a rarer piece and would display nicely for you. It would be a nice one to repurpose into a light fixture.
This trolley would ride along a beam at the top ridge of the barn. Most hay trolleys were put in when the barn was raised and stay there until the barn is taken down. Some think of this as the "soul" of the barn. Don't miss your chance to add this piece from the days of old to your collection!
