0. J. GLEMENTST ATTACHMENT FOR BROUMS.

Patented Jan. 24, 1893.

W/TNESSES UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CHARLES J. OLEMENTS, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

ATTACHMENT FOR BROOMS.-

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 490,472, dated January 24, 1893. Application filed March 17, 1891- Serial No. 385,434. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that 1, CHARLES J. OLEMENTs, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklyn, Kings county, New York, have invented a new and useful Attachment for Brooms, of which the following is a description, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification.

IO My invention relates to brooms adapted for street cleaning and like purposes, and consists in a hoe shaped scraper affixed or adapted to be affixed to its back, and in the several features of the same, constructed, arranged, and

I 5 combined, substantially in the manner and for the purposes as hereinafter shown, illustrated, described, and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings I have shown one form of my device as applied to the usual 2c form of stable brush or street cleaners brush. Like letters of reference indicate like parts in the several views.

This invention relates particularly to the so called push brooms or brooms constructed and arranged to be pushed by the user.

Brooms of this kind are usually used in stables and for street cleaning, and it often happens that the mud or dirt to be swept up is tenacious and not removable by the broom alone. To make the broom therefore more effective, I affix to its back in any desirable manner a hoe or scraper B, preferably of steel. The blade of the scraper is placed so that it projects from the back of the broom at an an- 3 5 gle of about one hundred and twenty degrees with the handle of the broom. When the handle of the broom is at the angle used for brushing and the brush is inverted, the blade of the scraper will be about perpendicular with the surface of the ground, while when the handle of the broom is nearly vertical, the blade of the scraper will be nearly parallel with the ground. The scraper may therefore be used as a push hoe to loosen the dirt or by simply tilting the handleAof the broom, it maybe used as an ordinary garden hoe to not only loosenthe dirt, but to gather it up into piles. The position of the hoe or scraper may then be reversed and the brush used to complete the work.

I form my scraper preferably in a manner shown and out of a flat plate of metal cut out in such way as to leave the three arms I) b b and the two similar but longer arms I) b projecting backward from the blade of the 5 5 scraper. These arms may then be suitably bent to fit the back of the brush for which they are designed, and screws 0 or similar attachments may be provided. I do not wish tolimit myself to any such form of attach- 6o ment.

Having now described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is 1. As an article of manufacture, a scraper blade provided with clamps conforming to the back and edges of a push brush or like device, and means for securing the said clamps to the said device, substantially as and for the purposes set forth. 7o

2. As an article of manufacture,ahoe shaped scraper blade for attachment to push brushes, provided with integral arms 12, formed in continuation of and substantially in the plane of the blade, and arms I) also formed integrally with the blade and conforming to the back of the brush for which they are designed, and means for securing the said arms to the brush with which it may be used, substantially as set forth.

In testimony of the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 5th day of March, 1891.

HAROLD BINNEY, ALBERT J. EDWARDS.
