Senior Hay Fork Carrier

Louden Machinery Company catalogue page

The Hay Carrier is an overhead crane, which allows a farmer to lift a large amount of hay up into his barn hay-loft area.  A horse or tractor provides the lifting power through the pulleys on the Hay Carrier.

Once the hay is lifted to the proper height, the Hay Carrier travels into the barn on an overhead track, still powered by the horse or tractor.  The load of hay is then dropped into place onto the hay- loft floor.
