DANIEL B. FRISiBY, OF DUMONT, IOWA.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, DANIELE. FRISBY, citizen of the United States, residing at Dumont, in the county of Butler and State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Harrow-Carts, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to harrow carts. The object of the invention is the construction of a simple and. efficient harrow cart that is attached at one end to the harrow and has at its opposite end a wheel for partly supporting the cart.
Another object of the invention is to improve the construction of a harrow attachment shown in the harrow attachment disclosed in my prior United States Patent, No.'
991,966, issued on May 9th, 1911.
With these and other objects in view, my invention comprises certain novel constructions, combinations and arrangements of parts, as will be hereinafter specifically described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of a device constructed in accordance with the present invention, while Fig. 2 is a view in side elevation of the same.
Fig. 3 is a sectional View taken on llne 3-3, Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the tachment, comprises a pair of arms 4; each arm 4 is bent at 5, intermediate its ends, and the lowest end 6 is flattened as at 7 and this flattened end 7 rests against the top of the beam 3. A fastening bolt 8 passes through the flattened end 7 and beam 3, securing the beam and lower flattened end of the arm toq gether. Each arm 4 is flattened at its rear end 9 in a vertical plane, and these flattened ends of the arms rest against the casting 10, and by means of bolts 11 these flattened ends 9 are secured to the casting. A rotatable frame 12 is positioned at its upper end 1n the casting 10, and to this frame 12 is attached the wheel 13.

Application filedianuary 20, 1920. Serial No. 352,699.
The arms 4 diverge from the rear ends to their forward ends with respect 'to each other, thereby producing a substantiallyY- shaped frame.
The supporting plate 14 comprises a tapering body 15, and the body-15 is provided at its front end with oppositely-extending foot rests 16. In the'body 15 are formed apertures 17; these apertures 17 are near the outer side-edges of the body, and by reason of the body being'of a tapered structure, these apertures, while arranged in pairs at the side-edges of the 'body, are positioned on converging lines 'with'respect to each other, so that these apertures are located contiguous to the inner sides of the arms 4 when the plate is resting upon said arms, whereby detachable fastening bolts 18 can be placed in apertures 17 of the body 15 and the lower hooked end of the bolts partly surround the arms 4; nuts 19 are placed upon the upper bolts 18 that are snugly placed against the arms 4. I
' A seat standard 20 is secured, at its lower front end, upon the upper face and near the middle of the supporting plate 14, and at the upper end of the seat standard is secured .a seat 21; the lower end of the seat standard is accommodated on the supporting plate by reason of the body 15 being provided with a pair of apertures 22 that receive the bolts 23 that fasten the seat standard upon the supporting plate 14.
The peculiarly constructed supporting plate 14, together with the clamping bolts 18, produce a very efficient device that can be quickly assembled with the arms 4, or quickly detached therefrom at the will of the operator; in fact the entire device can be I uickly assembled or disassembled by reason of the bolted structure constituting fastening means.
While I have described the preferred embodiment of my invention in the foregoing description, certain minor changes or alterations may appear to one skilled in the art to which this invention relates, and, therefore, I reserve the right to make such alterations or changes as shall be found expedient in the manufacture of my invention on a large scale, and which changes or alterations shall fairly fall within the scope of the appended claims. What I claim is: 1. In a device of the class described, the combinationv of a pair of diverging arms, a tapering plate resting upon said arms, said plate comprising a fiat body having atiits front ends oppositely-extending foot rests, said body provided near its side edges with pairs of apertures, the pairs of apertures being formed in a converging position with respect to each other, clamping bolts ex tending through said. apertures and partly surrounding the arms, nuts on said bolts and engaging said plate for clamping the plate upon the arms, said plate provided near the center of its body with a pair of apertures, a seatstandard resting at its front end flat uponsaid plate, bolts extending through said seat vstandard .at its front end and through the pair of centrally-arranged apertures, a seat carried by said standard, a
wheel',and means for supporting said arms upon said wheel.
'2. In a device of the class described, the
combination with a pair of diverging arms constituting a YV-shaped frame, of a supporting plate resting upon the top of said arms,
said plate provided with oppositely-extend ing foot rests projecting beyond the sides of the arms, clamping bolts extending through the plate, said bolts having hooks on their lower e1ids, said hooks extending aroundjportions of saidarms, said bolts ar- 1 ranged in pairscontiguous to the side-edges of the plate and engaging'the inner faces of the arms, a seat standard, carried by said plate, a seat carried by said seatstandard, a wheel, and means for supporting said arms upon said wheel.
In test mony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature. 7 v
