A post-frame barn for mechanized tobacco housing

Paper American Society of Agricultural Engineers ( 92-4069): 20 pp.
A post-frame barn for mechanized tobacco housing
A mechanized tobacco housing system for stalk-harvested air-cured tobacco was developed that utilizes tall post-frame construction very efficiently and effectively. The structural load bearing supports and braces are spaced to specifications that allow special beams holding 1200 to 1500 lbs of harvested tobacco to be hoisted up to 27-ft heights and placed onto the barn framework with special push-switch controlled hydraulic-powered hoists.
