Elevators for farm products have had a long history of development, the most rapid development resulting as small gas engine and electric power units became available on the farm. The farm tractor is sometimes used as the source of power. This bulletin is confined only to the study of vertical elevators or conveyors. This group includes the belt and bucket elevator, the vertical auger, and some blower and pneumatic types. Some horizontal conveyor types are not useable in the vertical position.
