Where can I find one?! This seems to be harder than I think it should be.

We are in the Frederick/Montgomery Co, MD area.

I thought you could get them at TSC. Otherwise, check with local farm equipment/tractor dealers- they may be able to point you in the right direction.

If you can't find one up there you can drive down to Petersburg, Va.

I think their online prices are delivered and big stuff is significantly less in the store. Call first though. I doubt they keep many in inventory.

Check Craigslist for your area if you want a used one. We sold our hay conveyor thru Craigslist about a year ago and I have seen several on there since then. We purchased ours new about 15 years ago thru the local tractor/farm equipment dealer.

yeah, just go down to your local equipment supplier/tractor dealer and order one!~We did that in April, it arrived last week- 20 feet of ladder and no more sore backs from tossing bales into the loft!

They almost never come up in our local auctions or want-ads because people tend to use them until they are used up, same as small estate tractors with loaders. You probably don't want to buy used unless its almost new They are a PITA to fiddle with either the electric motor or the chains, unless you or hubby are mechanics.
