Vertical Hay Elevators - Auger Type

Anyone have any first-hand experience using the auger-type of vertical hay elevator? I"m speaking of the type that mounts on the side of a barn with twin augers that move small bales up into the hay mow, usually to transfer them to an overhead conveyor. Owatonna (OMC) made a model 305.

We still do small squares, and I have a barn that"s awkward to get into with bale wagons and your "traditional" bale elevator. I"ve come across a couple of these Owatonna vertical elevators and am wondering if they work well enough to set one up.

There"s one on a barn about 30 miles from me...I"ve never seen one in use, but I think it should work well with uniform, tight bales.

Several of our neighbors had the chain style vertical elevators back it the 70ís. Never seen a auger style, but I would think that just like the chain style, they were probably great when new. Condition of the equipment would really be the only limiting factor, in my opinion. I know several barns that stand empty, and their hay elevators cling to the side of the barns still, along with empty tower silos, all part of the past, and no longer used or wanted.

We had a vertical chain type. Even when new, it did not like bales to be even a little loose or soft. Two at a time going up was the limit. Don't miss it.
