Fork on Poles for Building Stacks

The figure shows the manner in which Raymond’s Elevator is mounted for stack building. These poles need not be so heavy as when three poles alone are used. They are kept. from being drawn over towards each other in elevating heavy loads, by lashing the lower end of each outer pole to a strong stake, driven into the ground obliquely, by first making a hole with a crow-bar. It is convenient to place the two pole tripods sufficiently distant from each other to give room for the stack, or rick, and to allow the wagon to pass within them The elevator first lifts its load, and then carries it along the rope, till the man on the load drops it by a jerk of the cord. This apparatus is made by J. H. Chapman, of Clayville, N. Y.
