QUICK DETACHABLE BASKET FOR AERIAL TOWERS Filed Nov. 9, 1965 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVENTOR F0 wnv I34 /4 4 542; J72.

ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,295,633 QUICK DETACHABLE BASKET FOR AERIAL TOWERS Edwin Earl Milner, Jr., Williamsburg, Van, assignor to Baker Equipment Engineering (30., Incorporated,

Richmond, Va., a corporation of Virginia Filed Nov. 9, 1965, Ser. No. 506,973 Claims. (Cl. 182222) The present invention relates in general to Walled operator platforms, commonly termed baskets, used on mobile aerial devices such as aerial towers, and more particularly to means for mounting such operator platforms or baskets on a boom member of an aerial tower device in a manner rendering the basket readily removable from or mountable on the boom member.

The aerial tower structure frequently takes the form of an articulated boom device having a pair of pivotally intercoupled boom members, which may be angularly adjusted to various positions or a telescopic boom assembly having a boom member which is axially movable in an angularly adjustable carrier boom, or a single boom device, in each of which an inboard end of the boom assembly is pivotally supported on a pedestal structure mounted on a truck or vehicle frame. The free or outboard end of the single boom or of the outboard boom member of the articulated or telescoping boom assembly carries the personnel basket, which is usually fixed to a bracket or flange formations on the end of the outboard boom member by a large number of bolts to stabilize the basket relative to the bracket. Many of such aerial towers have hydraulic controls mounted on the basket for con trolling the movement of the boom assembly to dispose the basket at the desired elevated positions.

Such structures have come into especially wide use in the electrical utility and electrical service fields, as a convenient device to enable workmen to rapidly reach and service overhead electrical conductors, lamp installations, and the like. Because the workmen in such uses of the apparatus are often exposed to high voltage conductors or sources of electrical shock, the baskets of such aerial tower devices are usually constructed of reinforced plastic of high dielectric characteristics. This is primarily to provide a non-conducting or highly insulative platform for the workmen so as to protect them from line to ground and to protect the basket from phase to phase or line to ground conduction.

Periodic and damage determination dielectric tests must be run on a basket to insure the safety of workmen. Considerable labor is involved in removing and replacing the basket at test periods, when the basket is secured to the mounting bracket on the associated boom member in the usual manner, frequently involving five, six or more bolts, along each of two flanges of the mounting bracket. Removing all of these bolts to dismount the basket has been a time consuming job requiring two or more men and considerable labor time.

An object of the present invention is the provision of a novel personnel basket mounting construction for securing a plastic basket or walled platform to the mounting bracket of a mobile aerial tower device in a manner rendering the basket readily attachable and detachable by one-man in a few seconds.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of a novel personnel basket mounting construction for plastic baskets of aerial tower devices, wherein a quick disconnect mounting is provided to secure the basket to the mounting bracket therefor on the end of an associated boom member which is devoid of the usual plural nut and bolt assemblies requiring time consuming plural turning of each nut and bolt assembly to efiect detachment of thebasket.

3,295,633 Patented Jan. 3, 1967 Another object of the present invention is the provision of a novel personnel basket mounting construction for plastic baskets of aerial tower devices, wherein an upper hook and pin coupling and a lower readily removable locking pin are provided to effect quick attachment and detachment of the basket relative to a mounting bracket on an associated boom member.

Other objects, advantages, and capabilities of the pres ent invention will become apparent from the following detailed description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing illustrating a preferred embodiment of the invention.

In the drawings:

FIGURE 1 is a side elevation view of a personnel basket and mounting structure therefor enbodying the present invention;

FIGURE 2 is a rear elevation thereof viewed from the right of FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 3 is a perspective view of the mounting bracket for the personnel basket and an adjoining fragmentary illustration of the basket rotated slightly to better show the cooperating structure thereon; and

FIGURE 4 is an enlarged fragmentary section view taken along the line 4-4 of FIGURE 2.

Referring to the drawings, wherein like reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several figures, the personnel basket and mounting assembly are generally designated by the reference character 10, and comprise a basket or walled operator platform 11 in the general shape of an upwardly opening receptacle of rectangular horizontal cross-section, having a front wall 12, a rear wall 13, and side walls 14, 15, sloping in a gradual downwardly converging direction. from outwardly flared lips 16 toa bottom wall 17. The basket is preferably molded as a unitary, integral body of reinforced plastic having high dielectric characteristic, such plastic materials being now well known in the industry. A pair of parallel, rearwardly projecting basket ribs 18, 19 of generally triangular configuration are integrally formed with the basket and project from the rear wall 13 thereof, the base of the triangular profile ribs 18, 19 being located at the top of the basket and the portion of the lip 16 along the top of the rear wall 13 projecting a greater distance than the lip portions along the front and side walls to extend to the rearmost end of the base of the ribs 18, 19.

In the usual aerial tower and basket construction, the basket is fastened to a mounting bracket on the free end of the outboard boom member by plural bolts extending through apertures in the basket ribs and through adjoining structural portions of the mounting bracket, frequently six or more such bolts being provided for each basket ribs.

In the present construction, a metallic reinforcing plate 20 of truncated triangular configuration conforming generally to the upper portions of the basket. ribs is provided for each rib 18, 19. Each reinforcing plate 20 is bolt fastened to the associated basket rib by a plurality of bolts 21 and eliminates point stresses in the plastic rib. A metallic hook member 22 is welded to each of the plates 2t) and bolted through the associated plate 20 and adjacent basket rib 13, 19, as by a pair of bolts 23, each hook member 22 having a downwardly opening concave socket 24 adjacent the free end thereof.

The hook sockets 24 of the hook members 22 are designed to be hooked over and receive an axially alined pair of trunnion pins 25, formed for example of short stub shafts welded in or to rectangular plates 26, which are in turn welded to the upper portion of parallel side plates 27 of the mounting bracket 28. The mounting bracket 28 is formed of a pair of correspondingly shaped metallic side plates 27 secured in a rigid assembly by, for example, felding them to transversely extending spacer channels 29, the rearmost one of which is apertured and provided with an alined hollow bushing 30 to receive a shaft 31 therethrough secured by welding to the other spacer channel. The rearwardly projecting end of the shaft 31 is fixed in the customary manner in a conventional cooperating facility on the free end of the outboard boom member (not shown) of an articulated or telescoping aerial tower boom assembly, or the outboard end of a single boom tower, for supporting the mounting bracket 28 and basket 11 and maintain the basket in leveled condition.

Each of the side plates 27 of the mounting bracket 28 also carry a pair of stabilizing and aligning plates'32 in the form of elongated members of Z shaped cross-section having laterally offset, parallel flanges 33, 34 extending oppositely from a narrow connecting web 35. The flange 33 of each plate 32 is welded to the adjacent side plate 27 and the web 35 is of sufiicient width to define with the flange 34 a Well to accommodate the alined basket rib 18, 19 and the reinforcing plate bolted thereto. Each flange 34 is provided with a circular opening 36 near the lower end thereof, bounded by a concentric reinforcing ring 37 welded to the flange 34, and the side plates 27 are similarly apertured, as indicated at 38, and interconnected by a transverse tube 39 welded at its ends to the two side plates 27 and located concentric with a common axis of the openings 36, 38, to removably receive an elongated retaining pin 40. The slope and location of the alining plates 32 is so chosen as to cause the free edges of the basket ribs 18, 19 to abut the webs 35 of the plates 32 when the sockets 24 of the hook member 22 seat firmly on the trunnion pins 25, and apertures 41 corresponding to the diameter of openings 36, 38 and retaining pin 40 are positioned in the basket ribs 18, 19 to become axially alined with openings 36, 38 when the hook members are thus firmly engaged on the pins and the abutment of the webs with the basket ribs occurs.

The retaining pin is a solid elongated rod of sufiicient length to protrude from both ends of the bore therefor defined collectively by the rings 37, openings 36, 3S and 4-1, and tube 39, one end of the retaining pin 40 having an enlarged head 42 of any suitable configuration, and the other end having an axial kerf 43 therein to accommodate arcuate movement of an elongated toggle member 44 having a greater length than the shaft diameter coupled to the pin 40 by a pivot 45 extending diametrically of pin 40 and located eccentrically of the center of mass of the toggle member 44. In this manner, the toggle member 44 has a heavier end portion 4411 which swings downwardly under gravitational forces when released to dispose the toggle member cross-wise of the opening in ring 37 and prevent withdrawal of the toggle end of the pin 40 through the bore. The toggle may, however, be swung to a position alining its longitudinal axis with the axis of pin 40 wherein its cross-section lies within the cross-section of the pin 40 and permits insertion and withdrawal of the pin 40 through the bore, therefor. The toggle member 44 may be provided with a transverse opening 46 therethrough in its lighter portion to lie immediately above the surface of pin 40 when the toggle is in cross-wise position to receive a safety pin, such as a cotter pin or the like, to prevent accidental turning of the toggle member to alined condition relative to the retaining pin 40.

The conventional hydraulic direction control valve unit operated by the occupant of the basket is mounted on the bracket 28, and therefore has no direct physical contact with the basket but is readily accessible to the occupant of the basket.

To assemble the basket 11 to the mounting bracket 28 on the end of the boom assembly, the workman merely lifts the basket 11 to the proper level to dispose the hook members 22 above the trunnion pins 25 on the mounting bracket, interfits the basket ribs in the wells defined by the flanges 34 and webs 35 of the mounting bracket alining plates 32 with the rear edges of the basket ribs abutting the webs 35, and slides the basket downward until the hook sockets 24 fits over the pins 25, or the hook sockets 24 are first fitted over the trunnion pins 25 with the basket ribs lined up with the wells defined by flanges 34 and the weight of the basket allowed to bring the basket ribs into these wells to abut the webs 35. In either case the basket is readily assembled onto the mounting bracket by one workman and assumes a position automatically lining up the openings 36, 38 and 41 for reception of the retaining pin 40. The toggle end of the retaining pin 40 is projected through the bore defined by these openings, with the toggle member 44 alined with the axis of shaft 39, until the toggle end is exposed at the other end of the bore, and the toggle is manually shifted, to cross-wise position, and pinned by a safety pin in this position, to retain the pin 40 against accidental withdrawal. Even if the retaining pin 40 were not inserted, hook pressure down on the trunnion pins 25 and the weight of the basket urging the basket ribs against the webs 35 of the alining plates 32 would tend to hold the basket in place on the mounting bracket. Thus, the retaining pin 40 serves as a simple device to insure retention of the basket in coupled or attached condition on the mounting bracket. For removal of the basket 11 from the mounting bracket 28, the above described P ocedure is reversed, the retaining pin 40 being removed and the basket lifted relative to the mounting bracket to raise the hook members 22 off of the trunnion pins 25.

By this arrangement, an extremely simple yet reliable coupling between the basket and mounting bracket is provided, whereby the basket can be attached or detached quickly by one workman, the total attachment or detachment labor for such devices being reduced to a one-man operation requiring a time of only a few seconds. This avoids the considerable labor involved in removing and replacing the usual type of basket mounting construction, which becomes a sizeable cost factor for fleet operators having a number of mobile aerial tower devices and conscientiously conducting the periodic dielectric tests with recommended frequency. With the use of spare baskets and mounting devices of the herein described type of construction, especially important time and labor savings can be made by fleet operators, as layup time for tests or replacement can then be substantially eliminated.

While only one form of the present invention has been particularly shown and described, it will be apparent that various modifications may be made within the spirit and scope of the invention, and it is desired, therefore, that only such limitations be placed on the invention as are imposed by the prior art and set forth in the appended claims.
