Hello

See my previous question also please

Fatarna lastade malmen på bårar och ***ihävarna*** fyllde tunnor med malm som skulle uppfordras ur gruvan.

Any ideas on "ihävarna"?

Thanks

pourers or barrelfillers
Explanation:
"Häva i" is simply to transfer something from one place to a receptacle of some sort, using a great deal of body strength.
Since in this case the "ihävare" transfer the ore into barrels perhaps they could be called barrelfillers.
