Default Hay Car/Trolley Question

Does anyone know of any websites that would help me to identify an unmarked hay trolley that purchased at an auction this past weekend?

Thanks!

THANKS HARRY!!!

Sorry for dragging up old threads guys but I'm new here, and I'd guess you could say hay carriers/trolleys are kind of my thing. So if anyone has any they'd like to have identified or try and stump me with just post a few pictures and I'll see what I can do.

And for those who aren't sure what a hay carrier is I'll post a couple favorites from my collection.

that's neat....do you also collect the forks? my dad dragged a few different ones home and hung them in the garage.....since he passed on I have taken most of them down mainly because the points were at forehead level...I thought of maybe hanging them outside on a structure made of phone poles....I could call it "fork henge"

Yes I do collect those as well, if you'd like post pictures and I'll try and identify those as well. The forks can be a little harder to identify as a lot of companies used similar designs, but I'll see what I can do for you.

Does anyone have a catalog for Ney or Olson companies for hay trolleys? Here's a link to a Louden catalog.

L Millers book Haying with horses has a LOT of pics of various trolleys. I have one for iron rail, and I should have oine for a wood rail. I have a harpoon fork a rigid 4 point fork, and a loose 4 point fork.

Hi Harry, I hope this reply is not too late. I can help you identify most all hay carriers you may have. I have well over 100 in my collection and some are kind of rare. If you have any that you still need help with give me a holler. Farmnut1950@hotmail.com Just call me Gary

Chris that would be a Moline Iron Works. If if it not pitted too bad you should be able to spot the sideways MI on it in a few places.


Thanks for sharing!

Has anyone come across this trolley. Made by E.A. Walters patented aug 13 1878. I bought it at an auction along with some of its original wooden double rail track last weekend.

Ronny,
I'd need to see a picture of your Myers to give you a better idea on the value, as Myers alone had over 50 variations they made through the years! Prices in general range from $5 to potentially $1,000+, but 95% are worth $50 or less.
