e/wmaa G7 l il "1 A o 1* f JOHN F. KISSANE AND THOMAS J. .KISSANE, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN; SAID JOHN F. KISSANE ASSIGNOR TO SAID THOMAS J. KISSANE.
Application filed March 31, 1917. Serial No.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, J QHN F. KISSANE and THOMAS J. KISSANE, citizens of the United States of America, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, haveinvented certain new and useful Improvements in Elevator Attachments for Vehicles, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings. 4
his invention relates to an elevator att'achment for vehicles and our invention aims construed to furnish a truck or similar vehicle with a novel elevator or hoisting device which will facilitate the loading of heavy freight and other matter, particularly from the pavement or street to the body of the truck.
Our invention further aims-to provide a strong and durable elevator or hoisting de vice that may be manuallyoperated or operated by the same source of power used for operating a motor vehicle, the elevator or hoisting device including a hinged or foldable platform that will serve functionally as a tail piece of the motorvehicle when raised and in inactive position.
ur invention further aims to accomplish the above and other results by a mechanical construction that will be hereinafter described and then claimed, and reference will now be had to the drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a front elevation of the elevator or hoisting device iii-connection With a motor truck; 1
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same, and
fFig.3 is an enlarged detail sectional view 0 ried thereby.
In describing our invention by aid of the views above referred to, we desire to point out that the same are merely illustrative of an example whereby our invention may be put into practice, and we do not care to confine ourselves to the precise construction and arrangement of parts shown. The following description is therefore to be broadly as including such substitute constructions and arrangement of parts which are the obvious equivalents of those to be Specification of Letters Patent.
sheaves 17 are cables a bracket and a portion of a guide car-.
drical brackets connected to the ends of the frame 1 and the body 2, at the sides thereof and the upper ends of said brackets have circular heads 4 providing seats or sockets 5 for tubular guides 6.
denotes rods slidable in the through the heads 4 into the guides 6 and the lower ends of said rods have brackets 8 to which are pivotally connected the ends of a platform 9.
10 denotes sleeves slidable on the guides 6 and pivotally connected to apertured lugs 11 of said sleeves are angle links 12 havin angularly disposed ends 13. The links 12 and the ends 13 thereof are slotted as at 14:, and extending into the slots 14 are pins 15 carried by the outer edge of the platform 9, at the ends thereof.
16 denotes transversely connected bearings on the upper ends of the guides 6 for revoluble sheaves l7 and said bearings have portions 18 extending into the upper ends of the guides 6 and supporting cushion mem- 21 denotes bearings on the end of the truck frame 1 for revoluble sheaves 22, and trained under these sheaves and over the 23. The ends of the cables 23 are attached to the platform 9, as at 24, and the sleeves 10 have tubular brackets 25 through which the cables 23 extend.
bove and below the tubular brackets 25 are cable clamping members 26 which connect the sleeves 10 to said cables to move therewith, and in this manner the platform 9 is maintained in a horizontal position by the links 12 and the rods 7 as the sleeves '10 slide upon the tubular guides 6.
2? denotes drums mounted on a shaft 28, journaled in bearings 29 carried by the frame 1 and the cables 23 are attached to the drums 27 and adapted to be wound and unwound relative to said drums during the raising and lowering of the platform 9. The end of the shaft 28 has a crank 30 so that the elevator or hoisting device may be manually operated- With the platform 9 in a lowered position,
as shown in Fig. 2, freight or other matter can be easily placed thereon and safely supported while the platform is elevated to the plane ofthe truck bed or body 2, at which Patented June 26,1917.
brackets 3,
time the matter may be transferred to the bed or body. Then, if the hoisting device is not to be further used, the platform 9 may be raised between the rods 7 to serve as a tail gate or end closure member for the truck body or bed.
What we claim is 1. In an elevator attachment for vehicles, a set of tubular guides adapted. for attachment to a vehicle, rods slidable in said guides, a platform pivotally connected to the lower ends of said rods, links connected to the ends of said platform and having a sliding connection with said guides, and cables attached to said platform, and extending above said guides and adapted for raising said platform and said rods.
2. An elevator attachment for vehicles comprising a set of brackets adapted for attachment to the rear end of a vehicle, tu-
bular guides-carried by said brackets, rods slidable-in said tubular guides, a platform having the rear part thereof connected to said rods, links in slidable engagement with said guides, and connected to the front part of said platform, sheaves at the upper ends of said guides, and cables attached to said platform and trained over said sheaves and adapted for raising said platform.
3. An elevator attachment for vehicles comprising a set of brackets adapted for attachment to the rear end of a vehicle, tubular guides carried by said brackets, rods slidable in said guides, means in theupper ends of said guides adapted for cushioning the upward movement of said rods, a platform having the rear part thereof pivotally connected to said rods, sleeves slidable on connected to said rods,
' said platform and said guides, links connecting said sleeves to the front part of said platform 'so that said platform may be swung into a vertical plane, sheaves at the upper ends of said guides, cables attached to said platform and to said sleeves and trained over said sheaves, and means adapted. to be carried by a vehicle for moving said cables to raise said platform and control the lowering thereof.
4. Anelevator attachment for a vehicle comprising a set of brackets, tubular guides carried thereby, lidable rods in said guides, a platform .having sleeves slidable on said guides, links connecting said sleeves to the front part of said platform, sheaves at the upper ends of said guides, cables attached to said platform andto said sleeves and trained over said sheaves, and means adapted to be carried by a'vehicle for moving said cables and controlling the raising and lowering of said platform.
5. In an elevator attachment for vehicles, a set of guides adapted for attachment to a vehicle, rods slidable in said guides, a platform connected to the lower ends of said rods, links connected to the ends of said platform and having a sliding connection with said guides, and cables attached to adapted for raising said platform and said rods. 4
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
