Hay Elevator

About this object

This is a Hay Elevator which had the purpose of elevating loose hay for the building of a stack. They were also used for feeding sieves up to a thrashing mill. This Hay Elevator was used by John Rowley on a farm at Tuatapere up until the late 1950s to stack hay.

Due to a lack of storage options, the timber work had decayed when the Club received the Hay Elevator and it has since been completely restored to working condition by Denis Casey, Malcolm Keen, Allan Waghorn and Doug Hurst.
