Old Farm Tools – What Is It? February 2011 Mystery Tools Answers
(Page 2 of 2)
“My dad bought one of these new before I was a teenager. We hooked it to a 1948 Dodge flatbed by installing a tongue on the front bumper. It was advertised as being able to pick up bales that were not aligned with the direction of travel.
When the operator got good with this loader he could run up on a bale that was cross ways to him and ‘butt’ it around and send it up the loader.
“We still use this loader but with a different truck. My boys will not go to the field without it. With nearly 50 years of experience with this loader, I have had a lot of good memories and stories I could tell about using it. I have to give credit to this response to my brother Jack; we trade farm magazines. He returned with my copy and showed me what I had missed. I usually drive, he stacks. One fond memory is watching a snake that was caught in the strings go up the elevator to him. He hates snakes.” FC
