There was a hook-on gear reduction electric motor that rotated the pipe in the back, winding the cables, and pulling the "front" to the rear, unloading the silage into the conveyor on the blower. Special forks were used to pull the pile down as it advanced. Forks were like long handled manure forks, with tines bent downward 90 degrees. Unloader guy stood on ground on other side of conveyor "hoeing" down the load. After the wagon was emptied, someone climbed up in the wagon, and manually dragged the false front back to the front. Most had a loop of rope to pull on. I don"t miss forage chopping/silo filling much. (Others may have had better setups.)
