Grauer, Milwaukee, Wis. l n Application -May 9, 1938, Serial No. 206,808 13 Claims. (Cl. 212-61) This invention relates to hoists and more particularly toa hoist for use with scaifolds.v

In construction 'and maintenance work employing scafiolds no satisfactory hoist has been devised for raising fairly heavy loads. In stone work, In particular, it is not uncommon to have loads of four to five hundred pounds. Such loads cannot be raised by an ordinary goose-neck.

One object of the present invention isto devise a hoist suitable for relatively heavy loads which is readily adaptable to a scaffold.

Another object of the invention is to produce a hoist including a drum and reel which is adapted to raise a load von the exterior of the scaffold and swing it onto the top of the scaffold. n A further object is toproduce a hoist for use on scaffo'lds, the hoist having a swinging arm in which the hoisting reel remains stationary during the swinging of the arm.

A further object is to produce a hoist for use on scaiolds which is readily portable from one position to another.

A further object is to produce a, hoist for use on scaffolds which may be readily converted from a motor drive toa manually operated hoist.

A further object of the invention is to produce a hoist for use on `top of scaffolds which may be a load at any desired elevation.

secured in place with a minimum amount of labor. 'Another object of the invention is 'to produce a hoist for use on scaffolds which can readily and safely either raise or lower relatively heavy loads. A further object of the invention is to produce a hoist for use on scaiIolds which will support A further object is to produce a hoist for use on scaiolds which can be used in combination with a safety guard rail. i

These and other objects of the invention, the nature of which will become apparent as the descriptlon progresses, are accomplished by means of 'the hoist shown in the accompanying drawings and described hereinafter in the speciflcation.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a tubular scaffold of the type shown and described in the United States patent to Reinhold A. Uecker, Serial No. 2,043,498, issued June tion mounted thereon; i

Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of the hoist together with one cornerof the scaffold;

Fig. 6 is a cross-section on the line 6-6 of Fig. 2, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Referring to the drawings, in which like nu-v merals designate like parts throughout the several views, and referring particularly to Fig. l, the scaffold is shown as composed of a pair of end frames or rings, generally designated IO-II, joined by .c ross braces II-II, the rings in spaced parallel relationship. Each 'l ring I0 may be superimposed on similar rings I2 which support the rings III-from the ground. Each pair of rings I2-I2 is connected by cross braces I3I3, similar to the cross braces Il, u which maintain the rings I2 in alinement with the rings Il) and in spaced parallel relationship. Coupling pins I4 join the lower end of the upper rings III with the upper ends of the lower rings I2.

Each ofl the rings or end frames I0II or 2 I2-I2 comprises a pair of vertical posts IS-IS connected by horizontal braces Iii-I6 which are adapted to support scaffold planking which forms a deck I1. Diagonal braces I8-IB join the horlzontalbraces I6-I6 and form the end frames or 25 rings I0 and I2 into integral rigid units.

All of the above structure is in itself old, and is more fully described in the Uecker patent, supra.

If desired, the top section of the scaffold or the deck I1 may be protected by a guard railing I9, which may extend on one or more sides of the deck.

The hoist, which is generally designated 25, is shown in perspective in Fig. 1, and is shown' in detail in Figs. 2-6 inclusive. It comprises a standard 26 which'is preferably tubular, having an extension 21 formed on the lower end. The extension 21 nts snugly within the tubular post II and forms a pivot about which the standard 26 may rotate. 40

The upper end of the standard is provided with a goose-neck 28 which bends away from the standard andl terminates in a. yoke 29 which sup- 'ports a pulley 30. Supporting braces 3| and l2 reinforce the goose-neck and permit heavier loads 45 to be raised.

'I'he standard 26 is braced by a supporting frame which comprises a pair of tubular membersV 35and 36'whlch are connected to a ring 31 at ltheir upper ends, and diverge to the top of the 4deck I1.

The ring 31is freely rotatable on the standard 26 and is heldin position by a pair of rings ll-ll sweated or welded to the standard 28. 'Ihe lower divergent ends ofthe tubular members 35 and 36 55 which maintain 10 l 2 are Iioined by an angle iron 42, which is adapted to rest on the top of the deck Il and be secured to the horizontal brace of the scaffold by a hook bolt 43.A The angle iron 42 is connected to a ring 5 44 surroundingthe standard 26 by a tie rod 45 which may be tubular, as shown, or other suitable shape. The ring 44 is held in its proper position by rings 46-46 sweated or welded to the standard 26. The standard 26 is thus freely rotatable relalil' tive to the rings 3l and 44.

A, reel, generally designated 50, is mounted inA a saddle 5I which is supported on the braces 35, 38.

the' reel and shaft may turn togethenthe shaft i5 I2 being mounted in bearings 53-53 in the saddle The shaft 52 has crank handles 55 on the opposite ends, outside the bearings 53-53 so that the rcel can be woundor unwound by turning the W shaft.

f movable and replaced by a pulley 56, which may be driven by a motor or engine 58, shown 4dotted in Fig. 2.

The reel 50 has a brake drum 60 formed on one side thereof, which is'engaged by a brake band @2te stop or retard the descent of the load. The braking action is regulated by a lever 63 pivoted to the sad'dle 5I.

A ratchet 651s secured to the opposite side of ai); the reel 50 from the brake and is engaged by a pawl 86, pivoted to the saddle 5i to prevent unreeling of the reel 50 and hold a load at any given elevation.

In order to enable the standard 26 to be turned readily to swing a load onto the top of the scaiiold a' ring 'i5 is fixed to the goose-neck 28. The ring t-carries a pulley i6 pivotally mounted, which is 'adapted toguide the rope Ti between the pulley- 8d and the reel 50. By making the support for A@ the pulley 76 circular, the goose-neck may be rotated to swing the load onto the deck' of the scaiold without any tendency of the load to swingout due to the weight. f

` .The guard rails i9 may be iixed to the hoist 25 throughrotatable brackets 80 mounted on the 'istandard between rings 8i-8L Having thus described the invention it is realized that it is susceptible to various changes and modifications, and it is not therefore desired to se limit the invention to the precise form herein shown and described but only by the scope of the appended claims.
