Hay Trolley

by Michael C.
(McConnellsburg, PA USA)

Looking for a working hay trolley and track system for my 42' wide barn. Hay grapple or bale fork would be a bonus.

Have been looking on e-bay and craigslist and local auctions but I am having trouble finding usable track. Let me know if you can help me out.

Trolley experience !
by: Anonymous

The recovery of the track is cost prohibitive---If so, look to pay heavily for the storage, and re-use of these are nil to my limited experience----To tear down and burn most barns as they do---it is crumbled for the most part.

To take down still standing is a risk for it is the highest point next to Lighting rods and again the amount of folks that want track are next to non-existence! My suggestion would be to look for a wooden track Trolley, and use new stock to Hang your trolley once you buy it!

Just a different way of looking at it! I do get lots of trolleys too! [email protected]
