update:  I did round the bottom of the top rails and no longer have the problem of stuff wedging on the side and stalling the chain.

My dad had one of those frame type bale conveyors, had no wheels, you had to drag it up to the opening and set the bottom on a stack of bales.  I could not wait to get rid of that thing.  Now thinking I will watch the auction sites for one.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

Its funny years ago you could buy them around here for next to nothing when the switch over to round bales came in the mid 80's in my area. Now days the acreage folks are looking for them to stack hay square bale hay in pole sheds. A guy in my area that does a lot of small squares for the horse people has a couple of them and throws them on top of the load and takes them to the unload site to help unload and stack.

Thanks Doc for digging this up. My gears are turning for sure! Brian
Opportunity is missed by most because it shows up wearing bib overalls and looks like work.

I do not remember the number but it uses detachable chain with 4 inch cogs top and bottom.  the bottom one is just keyed onto the shaft from the gear reduced tarp motor.  90 amp If I recall.  It is short enough the driving from the bottom has not been much of a problem.  Idler cog at the top, with a tensioner.
