A building lot in Eastern Tennessee we are hoping to buy has some antique farm equipment on it. One item I am not familiar with is pictured. I see a reel and an incline. Some of the parts may be missing. Maybe for putting up loose hay? Sorry for the poor image quality. Thanks!

Here is link to video of a hay loader in use, also unloading wagon load of loose hay at a barn. My father and grandfather used hay loaders such as these when I was young in the 1950's. They were used into the 60's but were pulled with tractor. My first tractor driving was pulling the wagon and loader and then at the barn unloading I drove a Super A Farmall to pull the rope which lifted the grapple forks load of hay into the barn.

Back in the fifties my uncle pulled one behind a one ton truck. I have wanted one of those for years. One fella had one that he had put new tires under it 15 years earlier, then left it out in the sun and wanted out of it what he had in the tires. Another fella got one on a piece of land that he bought and wanted $500 for it. Another one turned up that I could get for nothing except for the removal the ten inch tree that is in it. It would take a crane to get the tree out without crushing the loader.

My father called it a "Man killer". I think it was worse after they started using the tractor instead of the horses, because the tractor never needed a chance to stop and rest.

I have a neighbor that plans to take one to a local antique show and demonstrate it for people.

There is a guy near my hometown that restored one and brings it to pioneer days and demonstrated it. Every old farmyard had one, but I had never seen one work before.

You are correct. It is designed to lift hay onto a wagon (with a person to stack/spresd it out. Interesting tool, not much value except for show. Jim
