Hello,

This is the first tool challenge that depicts a tool that I don't own. I tough it might not be a very popular one. Any one know what it is?

Guido.

Looks like a travelling crane. The left "wagon wheel" on the other end makes it move up and down the tracks, depending on which way you turn it, and the right "wagon wheel" turns a lift in the center of the mechanism.

What type building is it in, barn, warehouse, etc.? It looks like it could be an early version of a gantry crane or trolley to simply move heavy objects from one end of the building to the other.

Hello ShadetreeRet,

Just happen to have a picture of the barn, although you may have a hard time believing it is a barn. The crane is inside the building where you see the clock tower. The other picture is the other side of the barn. If you look real close you see a chicken walk up ladder. There are 2 more sections just like the one in the pictures. They form a horse shoe building/barn

Guido.

It surely doesn't look like it was capable of lifting much weight.

The only structure that I can see spanning between the rails are the axle rods for the wheels, and the axles don't look that big.

I'd say 500 lbs. maximum.

What is the chute extending from the floor above...with the feed sack on the bottom ?

If there are chickens in there then it must have something to do with moving chickens.

I think you've got it.

It could be a device for distributing feed along a linear feed trough.
