JOSEPH H. MOSER, or DUNLAIP, KANSAS.
HAY-SHOGKER.
Application filed March 4, 1918. Serial No. 220,338.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JOSEPH H. Mosnn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dunlap, in the county of Morris and State of Kansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hay-Shockers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to binders, and more especially it is a shocker, wherein the shock is made by hand; and the object of the same is to produce a two-man machine in which one attends to the raking up and delivering of the hay to the table, and the other attends to theformation of the shock on the table and the dumping of the same when formed.
The invention comprises certain details of structure herein more fully set forth and claimed, and reference is made to the drawings, wherein Figure l is a plan View of this machine complete, a
Fig. 2 is a rear elevation with parts in section,
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section through the table.
The machine includes a running gear propelled by power attached to the tongue 1 which is shown in Fig. l as extending back under the table to the main axle 2 and braced by hounds 3, and which tongue is shown as having a whifiletree although of course the latter would not be used if the traction power were a machine. The axle carries at its outer end an idle wheel 5 and at its inner end a main drive wheel 6 which latter assists in supporting both the table and the platform. The table is a rectangular structure whose body is mostly made up of a movable bottom 7 consisting of an endless belt moving over rollers as best seen in Fig. 3. Around this movable bottom is a fixed platform 8 except at the rear end, and around the platform an upstanding wind shield 9. Across the rear end is hinged a gate 10 which when closed to upright position is latched as at 11 and the latch may be tripped by drawing on a chain or cord 12, or it might be tripped by the operator who stands on the table. Another latch 13 at the front edge of the table engages normally with a staple 14 in the tongue 1, and when this latch is moved by means of a handle 15 the front edge of the table is free and the entire table may dump. Across the back of the table is a shaft 16 carrying two spur wheels 17 Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Sept. 23, 1919.
the endless belt to move in a direction which a will deliver off the rear end of the table anything that rests'thereon. The operator on the table must of course release the forward latch before he dumps the table by passing a little to the rear of its center, and he must either open the gate 10 or see that the other operator does so. After the load has been dumped, he can restore the parts to the posi tion shown in Fig. 3 by stepping forward of the axle on the side platform 8 and latching the parts as herein shown, and then he can step to the rear and close and latch the ate.
b The inner end of the main frame 20 of the platform is supported in any appropriate manner by bearings on the main axle adjacent the driving wheel 6, and its outer end is preferably supported by a caster wheel 21. This end of the platform may be drawn forward by an additional horse hitched to the whiflietree 22 as indicated in Fig. 1. The gathering or raking teeth 23 are pivotally mounted overthe front bar of the frame 20 and their forward ends sustained by a bar 24 extending through all of the teeth, which bar is raised or lowered by lever mechanism 25 standing at the right of the drivers seat 26 as seen in Figs. 1 and 2. The rear ends of the teeth 23 extend back to different distances over an endless apron or carrier 27 which passes around suitable rollers within the frame 20 and is intended to move to the left just forward of the driver, and the rear ends of the teeth are graduated in length for the purpose of delivering the hay onto this carrier in such manner that the latter will pick it up most effectively and carry it inward to the shocker. The wind guard along the rear frame bar 20 is not shown, but it may be placed there and may be carried around the outer end of this frame if desired so that a strong blast of wind will not interfere with the successful operation of the machine. To move the carrier 27, power is taken from a sprocket wheel located preferably on the outer end of the hubof the main drive wheel 6, and communicated to another sprocket on the main shaft 28, whence it is conveyed by gearing 29 to the roller at the inner end of the carrler 27 111 a manner which WllllJG clear without going further into details. A
hand lever 30 at the left of the drivers seat 26 may control a clutch Within the main shaft 28 or may slideone of the gears thereon so that he can stopand startthe move.- ments of the carrier 27 and the elevator next to be described The mainframe QOcarries an elevator frame 31 inclining upward overthemain dri'vewheel-6-as-best seen in Fig; 2, and within the elevator frame-is mounted an endless-belt elevator 32 whose lower roller isconnected by the. gearingv 29 with the main shaft. 28,,a-nd anidle belt] 333qvhose lower stretch-stands. just above-the upper stretch: of said elevator, so that the hay between. these; stretches, is; carried; upward as indicated byv the-arrows in- Fig, 2. The side boards-of ,theframe 31 andithesidle belt 33 prevent ill strong; windfrom blowing the hay off the, elevator. The-upper endofthe. latterdelivers into ashockilrg frame or ring 35 which is sustained above the table. by lILG2Ll1-S,-;Ofconverging uprights 36, and this ring niay be; used asa handle by the operator on the table, to steady himself while at.worl-H Til-may. also bevnsed by him to assisttimforming the shock. Butit should be: large enough to permit the table to be. dumped as above described without interfering with the elevator frame.
l/Vhenithis machine -is :drawn forward bya, team of, horses or by three; horses or other draft power, the teeth piele upthe hay, and
adjusted byrthei driver bymanipulating lever They deliver the hay onto the carrier 27 which conveys it inward to the elevator, and the latter carries it upward and drops it through the ring onto the table. Here the other operator forms it into shocks or bundles, and these from time to time are dumped off the rear end of the table in a manner first above set forth. I consider this an extremely simple machine for performingthe workithas to do, and as simplicity avoidsexpense it; can be put within the reach of, the average farmer.
that; is; claimed as new is In athayz shocker the combination of a main support-having a table pivoted intermediate the ends thereof, means for conveying hay and depositing the same upon said table said 1 table 1 including a longitudinally moving endless conveyer in-v the bottom thereof asubstantially" UL-shaped platform carried by saidtable and surrounding the foh'wardiend of1each side ofthe conveyer, whereby the operator may walk along the platform for tilting the table as. described, nieansfor driving the=endless conveyer, a shocking ring carried uponv the table and supported thereon by, downwardly diverging uprights which are connected to the ring anditolthe table, said uprights therefor allowing the operator to hold thereto as the table-is being swung. upon its support.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature i11 presence of two witnesses.
