Default Here ya go Jake.

Sorry Jake I couldnt take a video but here is one on youtube. Same system but these guys are taking it easy on the video. Lets just say they dont walk the horse so slow . The faster the horse moves the faster it raises the hay. The faster the horse moves the faster it trips the rig to fly down the track in the barn. At the shop if I blink when its hits the trigger the hay has already reached the back of the barn. Takes longer to load the wagon then unload. Mesmerizes me to watch.

Sometimes he lets me use one, but only for a very brief period. About 5 minutes before he shoves me behind the welder again. Been bugging him to let me take a trip around the field with the mower just once. That isnt going to happen lol.

I cut most of the corn last year. Kinda neat. I remember sitting on my grandpa's lap doing that as a kid. I drove the team last week while Mahlon loaded second cutting.

I was looking for one to setup as a wood trolly for the sugarhouse. Very hard to come by one for sale. Gave up and bought a cart.
