Diesel Ducy’s favorite Elevator!!!

As you know, the leading elevator expert and videographer on youtube is known as Diesel Ducy. Diesel Ducy recently became a member of The Society for Vertical Transportation and we are very lucky that he was able to share a video of his favorite elevator with us.

Check out this very cool manually operated (Diesel Ducy himself gets to work the manual lever!) grain elevator from 1913. This is one beautiful machine.

Watch an antique wood elevator that transports grain. The attached video shows exactly how the grain travels.

This is such an intricate system of trap doors, elevators, pulleys, etcetera. Very fun to learn about this farm elevator!
