This is a complete, vintage Cloverleaf hay trolley that was manufactured and patented in 1903 by the Myers Manufacturing company in Ashland, Ohio, and removed from an old hay barn in Iowa. Many meticulous hours have been spent cleaning and restoring this early piece of farming history by removing all loose rust and dirt. An oil coating has been applied to the surface to bring out its natural chocolate brown patina. All parts, wheels, sheaves, and components work.
The center pulley locking mechanism doesn't move as smoothly as one might want to put this trolley back into service, so it might make a better static display piece, part of a hay trolley light fixture, etc. This trolley measures 20" long, 6" deep, and 16 tall with the drop pulley installed and locked, and weighs around 30 pounds. If you are looking for an original, natural looking trolley without the paint and artificial patinas.... This trolley does NOT come with the track or rope shown in the picture, but I do have track, rope, trips, hangers, stops, barn pulleys, and other accessories available so feel free to ask about adding them to the order/listing. Track and rope can be cut to custom lengths.
