MANURE-LOADER.

Patented Nov. 17, 1908.

Application filed. May 22, 1906, Serial No. 318,168. Renewed. February 8, 1908. Serial No. 414,983.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JAMES B. SOHUMAN,

a citizen of the United States, residing at Indianapolis, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana, have invented certain new bed of the vehicle 11. Detachably secured to the ends of bed 10 are standards 12 and 13 'the upper ends of which are connected by a longitudinal beam 14 which is held at con- .siderable distance above the wagonbed. 25.

which the lifting mechanism is supported. The carriage 15 carries on its under side a trunnion 16 upon which is pivoted the cross arm 17. Concentric with the trunnion 16 Mounted upon beam 14 is a carriage 15 upon is an annular track 18 having a horizontal pair of oppositely extending brace arms 15 to which the annular track is secured, and in order to counteract any weight suspended from the outer cross arm 17 I provide a chain 20 having the hook 21 adapted to be inserted in a perforation 15" formed in the -outer end of each arm 15'.

The opposite end of the chain 20 is provided with a hook 22 adapted to be connected to either one of a pair of pulley blocks 23, one of which is arranged at each side of the wagon bed on a rod 24, the arrangement being such that the pulley block 23 to which the chain may be attached, will slide along its rod 24 when the carriage 15 is moved longitudinally of the beam 14. J ournaled on the trunnion 16 below the cross arm 17 is a pulley 25, and journaled on the under side of arm 17 between the pulley 25 and the outer end of the cross arm is an idler 26. Hung from the outer end of cross arm 17 is a pulley block 27. The lifting cable 28 is provided at its outer end with any suitable lifting device 29 and passes from thence up over pulley block 27 around wheel 25 and behind wheel 26 and y from thence forward over an idler 30 to a winding drum 31 carried by a shaft 32 journaled in suitable bearings on the front end vof the wagon bed 10. Shaft 32 is provided with a large drum 33 upon which is wound a cable 34 to which a suitable draft animal may be attached. In order to hold the carriage 15 at any desired point on the beam 14, against the pull exerted upon cable 28, I

attach to said carriage a cable 35 which passes from thence to the rear of the vehicle over an idler 36 and from thence to a drum 37 provided with a pawl-held ratchet 38 and a crank 39. Suitable stops 14 may be arranged upon beam 14 to limit the movement of carriage 15 thereon.

In order to hold the cross arm 17 transversely extended during a lifting operation I provide a catch 40 on opposite sides of the track 18 either of which catches may be engaged by a latch 41 mounted on the cross 1 arm 17 said latch 41 being yieldingly urged toward holding position by spring 42. Attached to one arm of latch 41 is a rope 43 which passes over suitable idlers on the cross arm 17 with its upward end attached to a rod 44 provided at its lower end with a perforated head 45 through which the cable 28 passes, the arrangement being such that when -the lifting device 29 is lifted to engage with head 45 rope 43 will thereby be caused to pull upon latch 41 and withdraw same from catch 40 with which it is in engagement, so that a continued pull upon cable 28 will, because of the arrangement of wheel 26, pull ,the cross arm 17 around to a position substantially parallel with the wagon bed 10 so as to bring the lifting device 29 over the wagon bed and permit the discharge of its load thereinto.

In order to conveniently return the cross arm to lifting position I mount within the annulus 18 a spring 0011 50 each end of which is provided with a hook 51 adapted to hook over a pin 52 carried by cross arm 17,

. the arrangementl being such that the cross 1 arm 17 will be normally urged to transversely extended position (to one or the other slde, dependmg upon the end of the COll which a carriage movably mounted on said beam, means for holding same 111 desired posltion on said beam, a cross arm pivotally mounted on sald carrlage, llftlng mechanlsm carried by said cross'arm, means for temporarily holding the cross arm in extended posltion, and a spring yieldingly urging said cross arm to extended position.
