Dad had a older Kewanee that was too narrow to put hay in the barn. He wound up with a single chain Case elevator. It worked well to put small bales in the barn. It also was driven by a 10 HP gas engine. It worked well because the north farm was 5 miles north of home.   There were 2 barns, an old house and a couple of sheds that we filled with hay. A 5 gallon can of gas left in 1 of the barns would last most of 5he summer. Unfortunately both are gone now. They were stolen when all the rest of dads machinery was stolen after he passed away.

That theft issue has become HUGE issue around the state of MO.  Tweakers stealing for scrap metals, antique 'Foragers' walking onto VISIBLY utilized private property cutting locks or fence or displacing gates and gap fence 'Claiming' as Abandoned when obviously not.  Grab anything of value they can find and trash perfectly good and being used materials the owners had stored in the process.  Happens every time warm spells hit across five counties close to here.

We had a Kewaunee would take corn as fst as you could unload.  Another farm had a John Deere  Biggest piece of crap a guy could own.. They had added an extra 20 feet on it to make it work in this crib had to use a 3/4 dowel rod as a shear pin so you didn't tear it up.  More than one ear of corn to a flight or half a cup of beans it would shear.  Couldn't have been happier when the landlord let us haul everything to town

Something obviously wrong with that Deere. I mean, it’s a pretty simple concept machine. Ours was a long one and worked fine. If you were fast, and grandpa wasn’t around, you could get 17 bales on it, no room for any more! Corn heaped as deep as the trough. The only thing wrong with ours was it needed a new sprocket on the drive, the teeth were about worn off, couldn’t do the 17 bales anymore or the chain would jump the sprocket teeth. The only reason we quit using it was the cables broke and it crashed down and screwed the transport up.

I have no idea what brand ours is that is in my photo above, it will barely pull three hay bales because it has a small motor and the belt isn't very tight; I figure that is a good safety system so no need to 'improve' it. Besides, I am to old to keep up with more than that nowadays Smile

A neighbor had a John Deere. They had to put bales on edge because it was too narrow to put them on flat.

Yep. Same thing with my 2 New Ideas I’ve had. No big deal. I’ve done it that way for 50 years now, to some extent. I’d have a hard time laying one on the strings!

I grew up with one of those elevators you mentioned.  We used it in the summer to get hay to the hay mow and in the winter to get the ear corn into the wooden corn crib.  I think it had a briggs and stratton engine on it.  The brand was "Universal".  It sat outside all the time.  We used a bushel basket to cover the engine.  It came with montgomery ward rubber tires on it.  When the tires blew out and we went to big bales and shell corn.  It was sold it to an old iron dealer for little or nothing.

Our old Deere has been used as a grain trough for the last couple decades. Not much left of it anymore.
