Abstract

161,243. Courant, E., and Aubry, E. Dec. 30, 1919. Couplings for road vehicles; compound or articulated road vehicles.-To couple a motor-tractor with a trailer to form a six-wheeled vehicle, the bogie part of the trailer is formed with a pole 14 which engages a guiding funnel 15 in the coupling operation, a pin being then passed through the end of the pole to secure it to the tractor. During this operation, rollers 13 on the bogie travel up guiding inclines on the rear of the tractor until the axes of the rear and front wheels of the vehicles are in the same vertical plane, the tractor wheel axle being bent to allow this positioning of the wheels. In this position, the rollers 13 engage stop members 17 and are looked by spring- pressed hooks 20. The driver then raises the bogie wheels by the link mechanism and coupling- device shown in Figs. 1 and 5. During the coupling operation, the squared or similarly-shaped end 22 of a shaft 23, rotatable by the driver, engages with a funnel-shaped member 21 formed with a socket member to seat the shaft end 22. Rotation of the shaft 23 is then communicated to the screwed shaft 7, causing the nuts 3 to be moved apart, whereby the wheel axle 9 is lifted through links 2, 2<1>. In the uncoupling operation, the securing pin is removed, the hooks 20 are lifted, and the bogie wheels are lowered by the driver before separating the vehicle elements.
