    Thanks, I was guessing about that, but photos can sometime be misleading and the opening was 2 ft by 2 ft or something..


    That is such a great find! Was that a craigslist thing? The hoarder in me is wishing I had beat you to it.

    Great find Klop! You'll be grinding your own feed in no time! Coffee, I think you need to get going on this too!

    Just got home from looking at the grain wagon. I am going to buy it, but the snow was drifted infront of the shed and we could not get it out today. too cold for the guy's tractor to start. It is very neat and in better shape that I even thought it was. Nice guy too! Young guy like me getting started on his farm he bought from his grandfather's estate. Told me how he used to shovel corn out of this wagon into the storage bunk and showed me where they used to grind feed for their cattle. he is only 8 miles down the road, so no problem going back later this week after he gets snow moved.
