BOLT Dec. 3, 1957 PORTABLE MORTAR AND CONCRETE MIXER AND ELEVATOR Filed March 10, 1955 4 Sheets-Sheet 4 UI 1 I33 INVENTOR. fi ygz/izfiolij ATTORNEYS Unite PORTABLE MORTAR AND CONCRETE MIXER AND ELEVATOR This invention relates to concrete and mortar mixers of the portable type and also of the type adapted to be mounted on and operated by a tractor, and in particular, a bucket carried by arms pivotally mounted on a tractor and positioned with the bucket extended forwardly of the tractor, with rightand left-hand mixing screws in the bucket and with a gate adjustably mounted on the bucket, and a plurality of hydraulic cylinders or jacks respectively connected to the parts for elevating the bucket and also for adjusting the positions of the bucket and gate slidably mounted thereon.

The purpose of this invention is to provide a bucket having screw mixing elements therein in which the bucket is adapted to be mounted on a tractor so that sand, gravel, cement and other materials may be picked up and mixed thereby and wherein the mixed material may be carried to and deposited on a mortar board or deposited in forms by a single operator.

Various types of concrete mixers have been provided, however, it is necessary to elevate and deposit materials into drums of the mixers and with conventional mixers it is difficult to deposit the material directly upon mortar boards or in forms so that it is necessary to carry the mixed material with wheelbarrows and the like to points of destination. With this thought in mind, this invention contemplates an attachment for mounting a bucket at the forward end of a tractor with mixing elements in the bucket and with the bucket adapted to be actuated by hydraulic cylinders or the like in combination with a tractor upon which the device is mounted whereby the bucket is adapted to pick up and measure materials and wherein materials mixed therein may be deposited directly into forms or on a mortar board so that conveying elements for carrying the mixed material from a mixer to a form or the like are not required.

The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide a concrete or mortar mixer that is adapted to be mounted on and actuated by a tractor.

Another object of the invention is to provide a tractor actuated mixer for mortar, concrete, and the like, in which substantially all material in the housing of the mixer is worked into the mass.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a concrete and mortar mixer in the form of a bucket adapted to be attached to a tractor in which the entire mass of the material is subject to the mixing elements so that all material in the bucket is forced into the final product.

A further object of the invention is to provide a pivotally mounted bucket having a mixing chamber with mixers therein, and having a trough with material receivingand measuring means extended from the mixing chamber, and in which the bucket and parts thereof are pivotally mounted in arms adapted to be mounted on a tractor and actuated by hydraulic jacks or cylinders adapted to be operatively connected to the tractor.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a bucket having concrete and mortar mixing means in- 'ice corporated therein in which the bucket is adapted to be mounted on a tractor and actuated by hydraulic cylinders supplied with fluid under pressure from the tractor in which the device is of a simple and economical construction.

With these and other objects and advantages in view, the invention embodies a bucket having a substantially cylindrical mixing chamber with a trough extended from one side, a transversely disposed gate slidably mounted on sides of the bucket, hydraulic cylinders for raising and lowering the gate and also for sliding the gate longitudinally of the bucket, arms pivotally mounted on the bucket and adapted to be pivotally mounted on a tractor, rightand left-hand screws with openings through vanes thereof rotatably mounted in the cylindrical chamber of the bucket, hydraulic cylinders attached to the arms and bucket for adjusting the position of the bucket, hydraulic cylinders connected to the tractor and arms for elevating the bucket, and power means for actuating the mixing screws from power take-0E means or fluid pressure means of the tractor upon which the device is mounted.

Referring now to the drawings, wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts, the mortar and concrete mixing device of this invention includes a bucket having a base 10 with side walls 8 and 9 providing a U or channel-shaped hopper or trough extended from the bucket, a cylindrical mixing chamber 11 positioned at one end of the trough, a right-hand screw 12 positioned in one end of the mixing chamber, a left-hand screw .13

positioned in the opposite end of the mixing chamber, a gate 14 slidably mounted in a U-shaped frame having vertically disposed legs 15 and 16 connected at their upper ends with a cross bar 17, a superstructure adapted to be mounted on a tractor, arms 18 and 19 pivotally mounted on vertically disposed struts 20, of the superstructure and pivotally connected to a shaft 21 on which the screws 12 and 13 are positioned, hydraulic cylinders 22 and 23 for actuating the arms 18 and 19, hydraulic cylinders 24 and 25 for adjusting the position of the bucket, hydraulic cylinders 26 and 27 for adjusting the position of the gate 14 on the bucket, and hydraulic cylinder 28 for raising and lowering the gate.

The vertically disposed struts 20 extend upwardly from side bars 29 of a frame adapted to be positioned on a tractor, as indicated by the numeral 30, and the forward ends of the bars, which are adapted to be secured by bolts, or the like, to the tractor housing, are provided with struts 31 and the struts 31 are provided with diagonal braces 32.

The arms 18 and 19 are pivotally mounted on a shaft 33 extended through bifurcated ends 34 at the upper ends of the struts 20. The opposite ends of the arms 18 and 19 are pivotally mounted on ends of the shaft 21 on which the rightand left-hand screws 12 and 13 are positioned.

The convolutions of the vane 12 are provided with openings 35 and similar openings, as indicated by the numeral 36, are provided in the vane of the screw 13.

With the vanes of the screws 12 and 13 oppositely positioned and rotating in a counter-clockwise direction, material in the mixing chamber or hopper 11 is worked toward the center continuously whereby all material in the hopper or cylinder is worked into the mass. The peripheral edges of the screws or vanes are spaced slightly from the inner surface of the cylindrical chamber or hopper 11 and with the shaft rotated in a counter-clockwise direction from a power take-off 37 of the tractor 30 the screws are directly rotated by the tractor.

As illustrated in Figures 1 and 2, the power take-off 37 of the tractor is provided with a beveled gear 38 that meshes with a similar gear 39 on a shaft 40 and a sprocket 41 on the opposite end of the shaft is positioned to receive a chain 42 trained over a sprocket 43 on a shaft 44. The shaft 44 is rotatably mounted in brackets 45 extended upwardly from the tractor housing and a transmission sprocket 46 on the shaft 44 is positioned to receive a chain 47 that is trained over a sprocket 48 on the shaft 33 rotatably mounted in the struts 20 and on which the arms 18 and 19 are pivotally mounted. The shaft 33 is provided with another sprocket, as indicated by the numeral 49, and a chain 50 trained over the sprocket 49 and also over a sprocket 51 on the shaft 21 which extends through the bucket and on which the screws 12 and 13 are positioned whereby the screws are rotated, preferably in a counter-clockwise direction by the combination of the chains 42, 47 and 50 and the sprockets upon which the chains are mounted.

The lower ends of the hydraulic cylinders 22 and 23 are pivotally connected with bolts 52 to the side bars 29 of the frame on the tractor and the ends of piston rods 53 extended from opposite ends of the cylinders are pivotally connected with bolts 54 to the arms 18 and 19. By this means fluid under pressure supplied to the cylinders 22 and 23 through connections 55 at the lower ends drives pistons in the cylinders and the piston rods outwardly with the arms 18 and 19 moving upwardly to positions shown in Figure 10. With fluid under pressure supplied to connections 56 at the opposite ends of the cylinders, the bucket with the arms 18 and 19 is moved downwardly.

The cylinders 24 and 25, which control the position of the bucket, are pivotally mounted by bolts 57 to the arms 18 and 19 and piston rods 58 extended from opposite ends thereof are pivotally connected with bolts 59 to side walls of the bucket. Fluid supplied through connections 60 on the lower ends of the cylinders 24 and 25 carries pistons in the cylinders upwardly thereby retracting or turning the bucket to a substantially vertical position in the frame. Fluid under pressure supplied to the cylinders 24 and 25 through connections 61 forces the pistons and piston rods downwardly moving scraping edge 62 toward the ground.

The bucket is provided with side walls 63 and 64 and, particularly as illustrated in Figure 8, spaced horizontally disposed parallel bars 65 are mounted on the outer surface of the wall 63 and similar bars 66 are mounted on the outer surface of the wall 64 and, as illustrated in Figure 9, blocks 67 and 68 positioned on the lower ends of the legs 15 and 16 are provided with spaced horizontally disposed parallel grooves or slots 69 which are adapted to receive the bars 65 and 66.

The vertically disposed legs 15 and 16 of the gate supporting frame are provided with vertically disposed slots 70 in which upper portions of the side walls 63 and 64 of the bucket are positioned and the inner surfaces of the legs 15 and 16 are provided with slots 71 in which edges of the gate 14 are positioned. The cross bar 17 at the upper end of the frame is provided with a tongue 72 that is positioned to engage the upper edge of the gate 14 to provide a stop therefor and the upper surface of the cross bar is provided with spaced openings 73 to facilitate bolting the cylinder 28 to the cross bar. The lower portions of the vertically disposed legs 15 and 16 are provided with tabs 74 which, in combination with flanges 75 and 76, provide means for mounting the hydraulic cylinders 26 and 27 on the bucket. Piston rods 77 and 78 extended from the cylinders 26 and 27 are connected to the tabs or plates 74 with nuts 79 threaded on ends of the piston rods.

The cylinder 28 is mounted in the under portion of the cross bar 17 and a piston rod 80 thereof is connected to a lug 81 on the lower portion of the door 14. By supplying fluid under pressure to a connection 82 at the upper end of the cylinder 28, the gate 14 is moved downwardly and by supplying fluid under pressure to a connection 83 in the lower portion of the cylinder 28 the gate 14 is moved upwardly permitting free passage of materials through the trough or scoop of the bucket.

The cylinder 26 is mounted in a bracket 84 on one side of the side plate 63 of the bucket, and the cylinder 27, on the opposite side, is secured by a bracket 85 to the side wall 64 of the bucket.

The cylinders 26 and 27, for adjusting the position of the gate 14 on the trough of the bucket, are provided with connections 86, at one end, through which fluid is admitted for driving the inverted U-shaped frame and gate toward the outer end of the bucket and connections 87 for drawing the frame and gate toward the mixing chamber 11 of the bucket.

As illustrated, particularly in Figure 6, the intermediate part of the bucket is provided with a screed 88 which retains material in combination with the screws and the side plates 63 and 64 of the bucket are provided with upwardly disposed extensions 89 and 90, the upper ends of which are connected with a cross section 91.

It will be understood that fluid may be supplied to and returned from the cylinders by suitable control or valves and in Figure 11 a valve 92 connected to a pressure line 93 of a pump in a tractor as indicated by the numeral 94 is connected by tubes 95 and 96 to one of the ends of the cylinders 22 and 23 and by tubes 97 and 98 to opposite ends of the cylinders. The valve 92 is also connected to a return header 99. A valve 100 is connected by a tube 101 to one of the ends of the cylinders 26 and 27 for adjusting the position of the bucket and by a tube 102 to the opposite ends of the cylinders. A valve 103 is connected by a tube 104 to the connection 82 at one end of the gate control cylinder 28, and by a tube 105 to the connection 83 at the opposite end of thecylinder. One of the ends of the cylinders 24 and 25 are connected by a tube 106 to one side of a valve 107 and the opposite ends of the cylinders are connected by a tube 108 to the return side of the valve. By this means an operator in the seat of a tractor can control the positions of the parts whereby the bucket is adapted to pick up a load of material, carry the material upwardly to the position shown in Figure and, by rotating the screws 12 and 13, thoroughly mix the material.- With this combination of valves and cylinders, the operator may pick up any suitable load desired and may mix and deposit the load from the seat of the tractor.

In the design illustrated in Figure 12, the mixing screws of the bucket, indicated by the numeral 109, are rotated by a fluid pressure motor 110 having supply and return connections 111 and 112 and the motor is adapted to be positioned on an arm 113, similar to one of the arms 18 or 19. The motor 110 is provided with a sprocket 114 and a chain 115 is trained over the sprocket 114 and also over a sprocket 116 on a shaft 117, similar to the shaft 21 and on which rightand left-hand screws, such as the screws 12 and 13, are positioned. In this design the position of the gate is adjusted by cylinders 118, similar to the cylinders 26 and 27. It will be understood that the motor 110 may be driven by air, oil under pressure, or other suitable means.

With the parts designed and assembled as disclosed and described, the gate 14 is set to provide a full load, one-half of a load, or any suitable amount of material and with the trough of the bucket driven into a mixture of sand, gravel and cement, or the like, the space beyond the gate, such as illustrated in Figures 3 and 6, is filled with material and, with the material in the extended end of the trough the bucket is elevated and tilted to the position shown in Figure 10 whereby upon rotating the rightand left-hand screws the material is thoroughly mixed and by adding water to the mixture a batch of mortar or concrete is obtained. With this mixture in the bucket, the tractor is driven to a suitable location at which point the bucket is actuated by the cylinders 24 and 25 to deposit the material upon a mortar board or in forms or in a wheel barrow or the like. With the screws working the material toward the center continuously, the materials are throughly mixed and the materials may be conveyed from one position to another during the mixing process.

The gate 14 may be manipulated to provide any suitable mixture desired and by tilting the extended end of the bucket upwardly the products slide into the mixing chamber.

It will be understood that the mixing bucket of this invention may be used for other purposes.

It will also be understood that modifications, within the scope of the appended claims, may be made in the design and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.
