I'm going guard free... I like the danger factor! haha
I'm with Denny. Put a guard on the chain drive, and the belt drive. You don't want to get fingers or clothing in either. Or other body parts.
I think you'd be much better off using a gear drive! No belts or chains. Also, with a Barley Crusher it needs to be reversible.
A geared motor would be great! However... the garage door open was free. Here's a question... why does it need to run backwards?

Ummm...Yeah...That appears to be about waist-high, if I'm not mistaken.It would be a shame to be leaning over, pouring in your grain & have an "oops".Sorry, for the graphic statement, but that's scary.
