Hudson Hay Trolley

This is a vintage 1930’s Hudson hay trolley that came out of an old barn in Lynden, Washington. (It was really well weathered at the time.) A lot of elbow grease with a wire brush and a couple coats of clear Rust-Oleum cleaned it up nicely. These trolleys were used to lift the bales from the hay wagon up onto the top of the haystack or to the loft of the barn. A piece of reclaimed timber was used for a base in order to properly display the trolley.

Materials Used

  • Hudson Hay Trolley
  • Reclaimed Timber
  • Rust-Oleum Clear
