Whatever it was used for, I find it odd that there are no holes for a locking pin or other feature for one to lock it into place once the lift is to the desired height.

My thought also. There doesn't seem to be much wear in the spindle holes so it must have been used infrequently or under a very light load. Can you see any pulley's anywhere that might have been used in conjunction with this item?

That is different. Is there a possiblity that some thing or things have been removed from the barn? Is it possible this was used to open and close several gates or perform a mass function like that?
