yes it is.  I am going to use it in my garage to get things to the second floor...   I have about 10 foot of track and the pulley that locks into the trolley,   My dad actually used this one to fill the barn with hay, his first job was leading the horse which pulled the rope.

Got a friend who has that and the track in his barn. 70' of track and all the fasteners. been trying to get it because he says he doesn't want it in the barn anymore. Every time I talk to him about it he's not ready to let go of it yet !   He says it's mine when he is ready. Actually has two trolleys.   Still waiting!!!!!!!

I forgot to mention to my tower climbing instructors last fall that not only have I climbed silos ,but playing with hay trolleys was in my resume . They discouraged the use of rope capstans in general .


The lady did say she would miss me .

That looks like one that uses a metal track right? In my brothers barn we have one that runs on a 4 x 4. Has some nice grooves wore into it from all the years of service.

The only thing I'd watch out for is that you don't over load it. That old cast iron is probably a little tired from use.

Very nice find. Be a nice show piece in the garage too.
My dad had a collection of them and forks. He let most of them go a few years back, but kept some of his favorites.
There's a guy who comes to the Ashtabula show with a small working display.

One summer I stayed with a great aunt & uncle on their farm. I was the "trip" rope puller for releasing the hay once it was inside the hayloft. Ah, the memories of old............
