Overhead Crane Made From Hay Carrier
Robert D. Newton, Dexter City, Ohio: I made an overhead crane for my shop using a hay carrier originally designed to handle used hay. I hung a 1-ton chain hoist in place of the old hay fork. I use it to load heavy equipment onto trucks.
"I made a 24 by 40-ft. 3-stall garage out of salvaged electric poles and a salvaged wood silo. All I bought were rafter trusses and steel siding. Old wood stave silos of-ten have a lot of good lumber in them for framing. Many are cypress or redwood."
