C. E. NEWELL LOADING SPOUT Filed Dec. 26, 1922 I n, HUN M U lll 6k arias Ell/ewe.

Patented Dec. 11, 1923.



Application filed December 26, 1922.

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES E. NEWELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cedar Rapids, in the county of Linn, State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Loading Spouts; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of: the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in loading devices and particularly to loading devices for grain, or other granular material.

One object of the invention is to improve the construction of spouts used for conveying and directing the granular material to different parts of the vehicle to be loaded, wherein said spout will be flexible as well as telescopic.

Another object is to provide a loading spout of this character wherein the separate tube sections are formed to prevent wear at the points or areas of contact of the granular material as it passes from one section to the next.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a loading spout made in accordance with the invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged longitudinal sectional View through three of adjacent sections, showing the chains and hooks in elevation.

Figure-3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken in a plane at right angles to that of Figure 2, to show the wear plates in the sec tions. 7

Figure l is an enlarged horizontal sectional view through'the larger end of one of the sections, to show the positions of the wear plates.

Referring particularly to the accompanying drawing the spout is made up of a plurality of tubular sections 10, each larger at one end than at the other, and receiving the smaller end of a section in its larger end and having its smaller end received in the Serial No. 609,008.

larger end. of the next lower section. Se-

cured to the diametrically opposite sides of the larger ends of the sections are the metal plates 11, each having a hook 12 at each end, for engagement with a ring 13 carried by a chain section it. Each of the chain sections has a ring 13 at each end, and the chain extends from the lower hook of one section 10, to the upper hook of the next lower section 10, whereby the sections are flexibly connected together. By reason of the difference in diameter of the telescoped ends of the sections, universal movement of one within the other is permitted. Further. more, by means of the tapering construction, and the flexibility of the chains, the sections may be readily telescoped into a small and compact position. The lowermost of the sections 10 is provided with a handle 15. by means of which the operator holds and directs the spout end, so that the granular material may be thrown into any part of the vehicle being loaded.

Secured to the inner face of the larger end of each of the sections 10, and at points ninety degrees from the hooks 12, are the metal wear plates 16, the same being of sufficient length, longitudinally of the section, as to receive thereagainst the granular material as it flows from one section to the next, thereby preventing direct wear on the sections.

While I have illustrated the sections 10 as round or circular in cross section, it will be understood that the same may be square, or other configuration.

What is claimed is:

A loading spout including a plurality of tapered telescopic sections, and a connecting means for each pair of adjacent sections comprising a C-shaped hook mounted on the larger end of each section, and a chain length engaged with one end of the hook of one section and with the adjacent end por tion of the hook of the next. section within which the first section is telescoped.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
