ROAD-REPAIRING MACHINE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 13, 1914.
Application filed April 18, 191 Serial No. 832,956.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JEFFERSON IsoM, Jr., a citizen of the United States, residing near Albany, in the county of Linn and State of Oregon, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Road-Repairing Machines, of which the following is a specifica tion, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to road repairing machines.
The object of the invention is to provide a machine of this character, in which gravel or comminuted building material may be discharged upon the road bed in any preferred manner, that is to say dumped at one spot, distributed on each side of the road bed, or fed along or directed toward the center of the road bed.
A further object of the invention is to provide a machine having the above characteristics in which the parts shall be easily operated, and the results secured of the most effective character.
With the above and other objects in view, as will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction and combination of parts of a road repairing machine as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and in which like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts: Figure 1 is a View in side elevationof an apparatus constructed in accordance with the present invention; Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view taken to one side of the center; Fig. 3 is a detail perspective View of one of the dumping chutes; Fig. 4 is a view in elevation partly in section of a part of the apparatus; and Fig. 5 is an inverted plan view of a portion of the apparatus. I
One of the essential features of the inven tion resides in the peculiar form of wagon body employed in conjunction with the material distributing mechanism. This body comprises vertical sills 1, to the upper edges of which are secured outwardly flaring sides 2 surmounted by vertical extensions 3, the ends 4 of the body being inclined, and forming in conjunction with the inclined sides, and sills, a substantially hopper-shaped receptacle 5 for containing material to be distributed. The lower ends terminate short of the center of the body and are secured to a horizontal plate 6 provided adjacenteach end with a discharge opening 7, the "intermediate portion of the plate being bridged by an inverted triangular-shaped distributer S, the terminals of which are inclined to correspond with the ends of the body.
It is to be understood that the mechanism for effecting the discharge of the material contained within the hopper receptacle is the same on both'sidesof the machine, so {hat the description of one will serve for oth. N Secured to the horizontal plate on each side of the discharge opening is a guide 9, and these guides are engaged by a out-0E or slide plate 10. Depending from the under side of this slide plate is a bracket 11 to which one end of a rod 12 is connected, the other end of said rod being connected to the lower end of a lever 13 that is fnlcrumed intermediate-of its ends on a rod 14 passing through the sills. The upper end of this rod extends a suflicient distance above the wagon body to permit of its being grasped by the operator occupying the seat of the wagon. By manipulating the levers 13, the material may be permitted to escape from either one of the openings 7, or both at the same time, and by regulating the degree to which the slides are open, the discharge may readily be controlle One of the essential features of the invention resides in a novel means whereby the material being discharged may be permitted to drop vertically onto the road bed, or may bed, or be discharged or distributed to both sides thereof. This means comprises a chute 15 that has secured to it at each side an arm 16, and the upper ends of these arms are provided with out-turned pintles 17 that engage hangers 18 secured to the outer sides of the lower port-ion of the hopper. The arms are secured approximately intermediate of each disposed relative to the bottom thereof. The chute may be made of any suitable material, such as metal, and is provided with side flanges to which the lower terminals of the arms are secured.
Pivotally connected with the outer ends of the chute flanges is a bail 20 to the intermediate portion of which is connected the lower end of a link 21, the upper end of which is pivotally connected with a flexible I lever 22 pivoted at'23 to the sill and having be directed toward the center of the road of the ends of the chute, and are obliquely its forward end connected with a pivoted locking lever 2 t formed at its upper end with an outturned handle 25. The lever is provided in this instance with three unequally spaced notches 26, 2'7 and 28, that are designed to interlock with a pin 29 projecting from the side of one of the sills. It is to be understood thatthe mechanism just described is duplicated on the opposite side of the machine and operates in the same manner.
Assuming that the road bed require that the center portion should receive loads of surfacing material, the levers 24: will be pushed downward to bring the upper notch 28 into engagement with the pin 29, and
when the parts are in this position, the
chutes will have their lower ends disposed beyond the sides of the wagon body. The operator by manipulating one or both of the levers 13 can permit the material on each side of the distributor 8 to fall to the ground in bulk, or by partly closing the slides, the vehicle can be driven along and discharge the material onto the center of the road. There it is desired to discharge the material toward the center of the road, the notch 27 is brought into engagement with the pin 29, and this will cause the two chutes to assume an inwardly inclined position and permit them to receive the escaping material, and direct it to the point desired. Where it is desired to discharge the material on the outer side of the road bed, the notch 26 is brought into engagement with the pin 26 and this will cause the two chutes to swing in under the slides and occupy adownwardly inclined position, so that the material escaping from the discharge openings in the bottom will be directed onto the chutes and thence to the road bed at the points men tioned.
From the foregoing description, it will be seen that although the device of the present invention is exceedingly simple in construction, it will be thoroughly eflicient in accomplishing the objects designed effectively with a minimum output of labor.
I claim:
In a road repairing machine, a body having a hopper-shaped compartment, discharge openings in the bottom of the compartment, an inverted V-shaped -distributer arranged longitudinally of the body and terminating at its sides with the inner walls of the openings, slides located beneath the openings, means for shifting the slides to open or close the openings, pivoted chutes disposed trans versely of the body, and means for swinging the chutes beneath or away from the slides.
In testimony whereof I hereunto al'hx my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
