EUGENE RYNEARSON, OF DALLAS, TEXAS.

PAVEMENT-BREAKING MACHINE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 11, 1911.

Application filed August 13, 1910. Serial No. 577,005.

To all whom it may concern."

Be it known that I, EUGENE RYNEARsoN, citizen of the United States, residing at Dallas, in the county of Dallas and State of Texas, have invented certainnew and useful Improvements in Pavement-Breaking Machines, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to new and useful improvements in pavement breaking machines. Its object is to provide a portably mounted machine which by means of a weighted chisel will be adapted to break up pavement of concrete or other material with a considerable economy in time and expense over the manual performance of this opera tion.

A further object is to provide a novel means for raising the aforesaid weighted chisel, means for holding the same raised in any position, and means for shifting the same laterally upon its portable support.

Finally the object of the invention is to provide a device of the character described that will be strong, durable, simple and efficient, and comparatively easy to construct, and also one the various parts of which will not be likely to get out of working order.

With these and various other objects in view, my invention has relation to certain novel features of construction and operation,

an example of which is described in the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:

Figure l is a side elevation of the machine showing it mounted upon a wheeled truck for which a track is provided. Fig.2 is a sectional View taken on the line w-'w of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a front view of the machine. Fig. 1 is a section taken on the line 0000 of Fig. 1, the traveling platform being shown in dash lines. Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line y y of Fig. 41-. Fig. 6 is a detail side view of the frame in which the weighted chisel is mounted forvertical travel, showing the mechanism upon this frame for clutching the chisel at any elevation, and for releasing the chisel from the means employed to raise the same. Fig. 7 is a cross section taken on the line 22 of Fig. 2. Fig. 8 is a horizontal cross section, taken on the line ss of Fig. 6. Fig. 9 is a perspective detail of one of the brackets used to support the friction rollers by which the weighted chisel is elevated.

Referring now more particularly to the drawings wherein like numerals of reference designate similar parts in all the figures, the numeral 1 denotes the truck upon which the herein described machine is portably mounted, such truck being provided with flanged wheels 2 traveling upon a track 3. Upon the forward portion of this truck is provided a cab or housing 4 to be occupied by the motorman. Upon the platform of the truck 1 is mounted a track consisting of a pair of transverse rails 5. A number of rollers 6 travel upon this track, said rollers being mounted upon the underside of a platform 7. From the rear of this platform is vertically supported an elongated frame to receive the weighted chisel 8, which frame consists of a pair of side plates 9, rigidly connected at their upper and lower portions by braces 10. This frame is secured to the platform 1 at its lower portion by angles 11, and its upper extremity is held rigid by a brace 12 extending from one of the braces 10 to the platform 7 The weighted chisel 8 is guided and restricted from transverse displacement by a number of flanged rollers 18 mounted at each side of the chisel between angle irons 1 1 attached to the inner surface of the plates 9.

Near the middle portion of the vertical guiding frame, which consists of the parts 9 and 10, there is mounted a horizontally elongated rectangular frame 15. In each extremity of this frame there are slidably mounted brackets 16, grooves 17 being provided in the extremities of the frame at each side thereof to receive said brackets. Adjusting screws 18 centrally mounted in each end of the frame 15 bear upon the brackets 16 and are adapted to adjust said brackets in a direction longitudinal with said frame 15. In each of the brackets 16 is mounted a rock shaft 19 extending transversely of the frame 15. One end of each rock shaft receives the extremities of a short link 20, and the other extremity of each rock shaft receives the extremity'of a longer link 21. In the links 20 and 21 are pivotally mounted frames 22, each of which frames carries a rotatably mounted roller 23. The rollers 23 are adapted to contact with the chisel 8 and to raise the same by their rotation, means being described hereinafter for imparting rotation to said rollers. hen the rollers 23 are in contact with the chisel 8, the frame 22 in which said rollers are mounted is supported from beneath by brackets 24 attached to the angle irons 141.

Upon the frame 15 is rigidly mounted a bracket 25, to which is pivotally attached one extremity of a horizontal bar 26. This bar is connected to one of the links 21 by a short link 27, and is connected at its extremity to the other link 21 by a vertical bar 28. This latter bar is extended upward to a point adjacent to the upper extremity of the guiding frame of the chisel, at which point it is pivotally attached to a horizontal bar 29. The bar 29 is pivoted at one extremity upon a bracket 30 supported from one of the plates 9. At the other extremity of this bar is provided a coiled spring 31, with which spring the upper extremity of the chisel 8 is adapted to contact when the chisel has reached the desired elevation. Such contact will produce an angular displacement of the bar 29 about its point of pivotal attachment to the bracket 30. This will produce a vertical displacement of the bar 28, causing the links 21 to be displaced upwardly at their point of connection with the frames 22. That portion of these frames in which the rollers 23 are mounted will thus be displaced outwardly from the chisel 8, causing the chisel to be released from the rollers 23 and permitting it to drop.

In order that the operation just described may be started manually at any height of the chisel as well as automatically at a certain height thereof, a lever 32 is pivotally mounted upon the plate 9 above the rod 26, and is attached to said rod by a link 33. V hen the lever 32 is raised, the same effect will result as if produced by the elevation of the rod 28; that is to say, the rollers 23 will be removed from contact with the chisel, permitting the latter to drop.

Upon the spindles 34 upon which the rollers 23 are rigidly mounted, there are also mounted a pair of pinions 35 whose teeth are in mesh. One of the spindles 34 also carries a sprocket wheel 36 to which rotation is communicated by a chain 37 from a counter shaft 38. This counter shaft is mounted in a pair of brackets 39, and receives rotation from a motor 40 through a belt 41 and pulleys 42. When the rollers 23 are shifted out of contact with the chisel 8, the amount of displacement need not be sufficient to cause the gears 35 to disengage from each other. The screws 18 will permit of adjustment to compensate for wear of either of the rollers 23 or the chisel 8, so that there will always be maintained the proper amount of friction between the rollers and the chisel to permit the former to elevate the latter.

Means are provided whereby the platform 7 and the machinery mounted thereupon may be transversely shift-ed upon the truck 1, in order that the chisel may be able to work upon a wider path. Adjacent to each of the rails 5 and parallel therewith a rack 43 is mounted upon the truck 1. Each of these racks is engaged by a pinion 44 mounted upon an extremity of the shaft 45. This shaft is mounted in brackets 46 attached to the bottom of the platform 7. The shaft carries a worm wheel 47 which wheel is driven by a worm 48 rigid upon a transverse shaft 49. The shaft 49 is mounted in brackets 50 adjacent to the worm wheel and its other extremity is supported by a bracket 49 mounted u on the platform 7. Upon the shafts 49 is mounted a fast pulley 51 and a pair of loose pulleys 52, the latter being placed at each side of the former, adjacent thereto. The pulleys 52 are connected by belts 53 and 54 with a pulley 55 mounted upon the counter shaft 38. The belt 53 is crossed in order that it may communicate a rotation to the shaft 49 opposite in direction to that which is communicated thereto by the belt 54. As shown in the drawings neither of the belts are adapted to impart rotation to the shaft 49 since they are both shown mounted upon the loose pulleys 52. In order to shift either of the belts upon the fast pulley 51, a bar 56 is transversely mounted upon the platform 7 in guides 57. From this bar a pair of belt guides 58 extend upwardly at each side of the belt 53 and belt guides 59 extend downwardly at each side of the belt 54. In order to shift the bar 56 a rockshaft 60 is mounted in bearings 61 upon the side of the platform 7. From the extremity of this bar a pin 62 extends upwardly engaging in a slot in the bar 56. It will thus be seen that if the rod 60 be rotated in one direction, the belt 53 will be thrown upon the fast pulley 51 causing the platform 7 to be transversely shifted. If the rod 60 be rotated in the opposite direction, the belt 54 will be thrown upoirtlie fast pulley 51, resulting in the platform 7 being transversely shifted in a reverse direction.

Means are also provided unrelated to the raising means by which the chisel may be maintained at any elevation, or caught at any point of its fall. This means consists in a pair of circular segments 63 eccentrically mounted upon rock shafts 64 adjacent to the chisel at opposite sides thereof. The shafts 64 are pivoted in the extremities of brackets 65, one of which is secured to each of the plates 9. Veights 66 are provided upon the segments 63 in order to hold said segments normally out of contact with the chisel so that the latter may be free to operate under the action of the rollers 23. Upon one extremity of each shaft 64 a link 67 is rigidly mounted, said links extending upward and inward. The other extremity of each link 67 is connected by a link 68 with a lever 69 pivoted upon the plate 9. It is thus apparent that the downward angular displacement of the lever 69 will rock the segments into contact with the chisel 8. Owing to the fact that the segments 63 are eccentric with their support, the friction between these segments and the chisel will rapidly increase from the instant of contact through a short period of rolling contact until the constantly increasing radius of the segments will cause them to act as a clutch to prevent the downward motion of the chisel.

If the chisel used in this machine have the proper weight, it can be made to strike a blow of considerable force such that one or two blows in one position will be sutficient to cut through the pavement. The operator will then apply the clutch consisting of the segments 63 and the shift rod 60 will be operated causing the chisel to be fed trans versely preferably a distance equal to its own width. Thus the pavement may be cut through in a continuous line, not only between the rails of the track 3, but a considerable distance on the outside of these rails provided that the truck be extended laterally beyond the track. The truck will then be moved forward the distance of a few feet and another transverse line will be cut through the pavement. It is obvious that the pavement between the two cutting lines will be greatly broken up by this operation so that it may be easily removed by manual labor.

The truck upon which the above described pavement breaker is mounted is shown in the accompanying drawing mounted upon a track, but it is apparent that the machine may be mounted upon some other form of truck that will not require a track. Thus the machine is adapted to break pavement of any sort whether the street be provided with car tracks or not.
