MOYNE LEGLEBJQUE KELLY, OF WAGO, TEXAS.
Application led September 21, 1922. Serial No. 589,670.
T 0 all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that l, Morne LECLERQUE KELLY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Waco, in the county of Mc- Lennan and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Disk-Plow Mountings, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a disk plow mounting.
The object of the invention is to provide an exceedingly simple means whereby a disk plow may be mounted upon a vehicle or running gear in an exceedingly flexible manner, that is, the mounting means permit the disk plow to be adjusted vertically with relation to the supporting ruiming gear and also permit the disk plow to be adjustably tilted in either direction.
Other objects relating to details of construction will hereinafter appear in the detailed description to follow,
The invention is illustrated by way of example in the accompanying drawing, in which- Figure 1 is a top plan view showing a disk plow secured or mounted upon the running gear, with the mounting means of the present invention;
Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view showing in detail the mounting means for the disk plow; and
Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2, but taken at right angles thereto, and further illustrating the particular structure of the mounting means for the disk plow.
Referring to the drawings more particularly, 10 indicates generally a frame which includes two side members 11 and two end members 12. This frame may be supported in any conventional manner, ,preferably by the drive wheel 13 and the two steering wheels 14.
The side frame members 11 are preferably of the structure shown, and to one of these side members there is secured a channel shaped member 15, said member having its body portion formed with a suitable extension 16 whereby the same may be additionally secured to the frame member 11. The side portions 17 of the channel member 15 have extending therethrough a spindle 18, said spindle carrying upon its lower end a U-shaped member 19. Upon the lower end of the spindle 18 there is' formed ay U-shaped member 19 the bridge poition of which is provided with an outwardly extending arm 25 terminating in a circular enlargement 26 which is provided with a plurality of openings 30. The leg portions 20 of the member 19 are connected at their free ends by means of a pin 23. Between the leg portions 20 there is extended a block 21 which has journaled upon its outer end a disk plow 24. The pin 23 extends through a sleeve 22 formed upon the lower side of the block 21. Upon the end of block 21, opposite to that upon which the disk plow 24- is journaled, there is formed a lug 2 7 to which there is pivotally connected a link 28, said link being connected to the arm 25 at itsy free end by a pin 31. As is obvious, the link 28 may be adjustably connected tof the enlarged portion 26 of the arm 25 whereby to tilt the disk plow 24 upwardly or downwardly.
The spindle 18 is freey for turning movement and thelupper end portion 32 of said spindle is threaded. Upon this threaded portion there is positioned a bushing or sleeve 33, said sleeve having its interior periphery provided with threads adapted to operatively engage with the threaded portion 32 of the spindle 18, and also this sleeve is provided at its lower end with a flange 34 adapted to limit the upward movement thereof. A hand wheel 35 is secured to the upper end of the sleeve 33 and as is obvious this hand wheel may be utilized for raising and lowering the plow 24.
The spindle 18 extends above the hand wheel 35 and terminates at its upper end in a squared portion 36. A hand lever 37 is provided, having its one end formed with an enlargement 38 which is in turn provided with an opening adapted to receive the squared portion 36 of the spindle 18. An arcuate shaped rack member 39 is provided, said member having its ends secured to the side frame member 11 which supports the plow 24:, as illustrated to advantage in Figure 1, and the lever 37 is freely movable upon the rack member 39. Also the lever 37 carries a spring pressed pawl 4:0 which is adapted to engage with the teeth of the `rack member 39 and thereby permit the spindle 18 to be adjustably held.
ln the use of the present invention, it is entirely apparent that the flow ,24 may be raised and lowered in a a' ls'table manner and easily set in the position desired.- "Also, by manipulating' the locking? member 28' and pin 31 the disk plow 24 may be turned to the angle desired.
It is believed from the foregoing that the many advantages arising from the present invention are clearly apparent. The plow 24 can be easily and quickly adjusted'to meet any conditions required.
What I claim is:
1. In combination, a running gear, a spindle rotatably carried by said running gear andi arranged in vertical relation thereto, a Casting carried upon the lower end of said spindle, a block supported within said casting and adapted Jfor tilting movement, and aidisk-:plow rotatably supported by said blocln- 2.,'In combination, a running gear, a Spindle rotatably carried( by said running gear and arranged in vertical relation thereto, af casting carried upon the lower end of Said spindle, a block supported within said casting and adapted for tilting movement, a;;di sk plow rotatably supported by said block, and mea-ns lfor adjustably rotating said spindle.- y
V2:3'. In combination, a running gear, a spindle rotatably carried'by said running gear and arranged in vertical relation thereto, a
casting carried upon thelower endof said spindle, a'block supported within said casting rand adapted for tilting movement, a disk plow rotatably supported by said block,
and means for adjustably raising or lowering said spindle, said means being operable from the running gear.
4. In combination, a running gear, a spindle Carried thereby, a supporting membei` connected to the spindle, a block tiltably mounted upon said supporting member, a disk plow carried by the block and means for holding the block in adjusted position.
In combination, a running gear, a spindle rotatably carried by said ruiming gear and arranged in vertical relation thereto. a U-shaped casting having its bridge portion secured to the lower end of said spindle, a block pivotally supported between the leg portions of said U-shaped casting and adapted to be tilted upon its pivotal support` a disk plow rotatably supported at the one end of said block, and means tor holding the block in its adjusted position.
t5. In Combination, a running gear, a spindle rotatably carried by said running gear and arranged in vertical relation thereto, a U-shaped casting having its bridge portion secured to the lower end of said spindle. a block pivotally supported between the leg portions of said U-shaped casting and adapted to be tilted upon its pivotal support` a disk plow rotatably supported at the one end otaaid block, and adjustable means tor tilting said block.
