Celebrating Hay Tools

Collectors gather for the first-ever Hay Tool Swap Meet and Show.

A portion of Steve Weeber’s display of handsomely restored hay trolleys. He and others in the hobby have conducted extensive research to determine the scope of trolley manufacture. Patents and trade literature – such as the Louden Barn Book, which among other things gives complete instruction in rigging trolleys – have proved invaluable resources, he says.
