United States Paten-t DRUlVI HANDLING ATTACHMENT FOR FORK LIFT John I. Mueller, Katonah, N. Y., assgnor to Basic Methods, Inc., New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application December 31, 1954, Serial No. 479,156
6 Claims. (Cl. 214-313) The present invention relates to materials handling equipment and particularly to an attachment for a fork lift truck to enable such a truck to be utilized in the handling of cylindrical containers such as drums of oil, chemicals and the like. The device is also adapted to the handling of other cylindrical containers such as barrels and of special containers, such as boxes and cans.
More particularly still the invention relates to an attachment of the type described which may readily be positioned upon the forks of a fork truck and which is operable to pick up and release containers without the necessity of the truck operator leaving his seat on the truck and which may be utilized to dump the contents from a container, the initiation of the dumping being under control of the truck operator from his position on the truck. In one embodiment of the invention means are also provided to control the rate of dumping from the truck operators position, without the necessity of maneuvering the truck and fork elevator mechanism to effect this control. In another embodiment the rate of dumping is controlled through maneuvering of the truck if it is desired to perform operations requiring such control; frequently such rate control is not needed, as, for example, when dumping drums of rubbish.
It is an object of the invention to provide an attachment for a fork truck by means of which it is possible to pick up, dump and release cylindrical containers such as drums, barrels and the like.
It is another object of the invention to provide such a device which may be operated without the truck operator leaving his seat on the truck.
It is another object of the invention to provide an attachment of the type mentioned arranged so that the discharge of the contents of a drum or other container may be initiated by the lift truck operator from his normal position on the truck.
It is still another object of the invention to provide such an attachment for a fork truck by means of which the rate of dumping of a container such as a drum may be controlled independently of any maneuvering of the truck and from the truck control position.
It is a still further object of the invention to provide such an attachment which is readily positioned on the forks of a fork truck without the need of complicated fastening devices and with a minimum expenditure of time.
Gther -objects and features of the invention will be apparent when the following description is considered in connection with the annexed drawings, in which,
Figure l is a side elevational view of the forward portion of a fork lift truck showing the attachment of my invention in place thereon and showing also a drum which has been partially engaged by the attachment;
Figure 2 is a top plan View of the device of Figure l;
Figure 3 is a side elevational view similar to Figure l but showing the position of the attachment parts when a drum has been picked up by the device and is being wird into a lars@ vat or @einen r'ce Figure 4 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of the braking cylinder which is utilized to control the dumping movements of the device;
Figure 5 is a side elevational View of a second embodiment of the invention which omits a brake which is present in the first embodiment and provides for controlling the rate of dumping only by maneuvering of the lift truck; and
Figure 6 is a top plan view of the device of Figure 5.
Referring now to the drawings, and particularly to Figures l-4 thereof, there is shown at 16 a base member for the lift fork attachment of my invention. This base member comprises the hollow generally rectangular tubes 11 and 12 which are closed at their left hand ends and which are so dimensioned that the usual tines 13 of the forit of a lift truck, a portion of which is shown at 14, may enter into the tubes. Joining the tubes 11 and 12 are the cross-braces 15 and 16 which are rigidly lxed to the tubes 11 and 12 and complete the base 10.
Fixed to the under side of each of the tubular menibers 11 and 12 adjacent the forward end thereof (the left end as seen in the drawings) is a bracket, the brackets being designated 17 and 15. Mounted in these brackets is a shaft zu which thus extends across the front of the attachment. l-ivotally mounted on the shaft 2o is a sleeve 2i to which is xed a mast 2A which extends in a generally vertical direction but in its normal position leans slightly toward the left at its upper end. Extending between the sleeve 21 and the mast AZ are the diagonal braces 23 which hold the mast against movement in a sidewise direction. lne mast Z2. is hollow and has a slot in the forward edge thereof. A latch member 24 is slidably mounted in the hollow generally cylindrical mast 22 and is spring-urged downwardly by means of a spring 25 fixed to the latch 2a at one end and to a pin 26 lixed in the mast at its opposite end.
Fixed to the mast LA at the lower end thereof, is a hook 2l which races upwardly. This hook cooperates with the downwardly racing notch in the latch member Z4 to hold a drum such as that shown at 26 in position.
lne mast ZL is normally held in the position shown in Figures l and 2 by means of a cable 5ft which cable is fixed to the mast 22 at one end and to a rod 29 extending between the tubes il and i2 at the other end. lntermediate its ends the cable Sil passes over a pulley 31 which pulley is rotatably mounted in a fork forming an extension or a piston rod 32. lhe piston rod 32 is iixed to a piston s (see Figure 4) which operates in a cylinder 34.
ihe opposite ends of cylinder 34 are connected together by means of a pipe 'se which, intermediate its length, has a valve 36 controlled by means of a cord 37 which extends to a point adjacent the operators seat on the fork truck.
The piston 33 is provided with an aperture 3S on the left hand side of which a flap valve 46 is positioned. lt will be seen therefore that the piston may move to the iet at a rate determined by the position of the valve 36 but may move to the right at a rate determined by the size of the aperture 3S which aperture is so large that there is no substantial impediment to the movement of the piston in' the direction mentioned. The cylinder 34 is filled with a hydraulic lui'd, such as oil. Also the piston is urged to the right by means of a light spring 41.
Referring now to Figures 5 and 6, there is shown a second embodiment of the invention in which the brake is omitted and the mast is held in position by a mechanical latch. Many of the parts of this form are identical with those of the form previously described and are consequently given the same reference characters; the de- 3,.; .i Y K ostor. tube 51..which..is .v supported at its forward ends on legs 52 and 53, which legs are supported on base members 11 and 12 respectively,.the-: tuberlitogethere withalegs 5.2 andsoztlis any desiredlocation.
