UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

TILMAN H. BUTCHER, BLOOMING GROVE, TEXAS.

LOAD LIFTIE R AND CARRIER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Fatent No. 508,866, dated November 14, 1893.

Application filed 1 m 14, 1893.

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, TILMAN H. BUTCHER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Blooming Grove, in the county of Navarro and State of Texas, have invented a new and useful Load Lifter and Carrier, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in load lifters and carriers.

The object of the present invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive and efficient load lifter and carrier adapted for use in warehouses and elsewhere, for elevating barrels, bales and analogous loads for transferring their contents, for loading and unloading vehicles, and the like.

The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims hereto appended.

In the drawings-Figure 1 is a perspective view of an apparatus for lifting and carrying loads constructedin accordance with this invention Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view of the hanger. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective View of the coupling. Figs. 4 andfi are detail perspective views of the parts of the grapple.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawmgs.

1 designates a horizontal beam, secured to the tops of legs or supports 2 and having arranged on its upper face a resilient cushioning track 3, on which runs a roller or trolley wheel 4 of a hanger 5. The resilient or cushioning track 3 is bowed upward from the beam 1 as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 2, and has its ends secured to the beam, and it cushions barrels against all shocks incident to the use of the apparatus, and it effectually prevents a barrel receiving any jars or strains, which might weaken or cause a barrel to collapse. The supports 2 consist of inclined bars 7 and 7 horizontal rounds 8, the latter at one of the supports or legs being arranged to form a ladder.

The hanger is approximately rectangular and consists of opposite side plates 9 having connecting spindles 10 and 11 at their ends, on which are arranged the said roller or trol- Serial No. 470,339. (No model.)

ley wheel 4 and a sheave or pulley 12. The side plates 9 of the hanger have journaled on them a shaft 13 carrying a cog wheel 14, which meshes with a pinion 15; and the latter is connected with a crank 16. The cog wheel is prevented from reversely rotatingand unwinding a hoisting strap 17 by a ratchet wheel 18 and a pawl 19,.and the parts are supported by a bracket 20 located on the exterior of the adjacent side plate and secured thereto. The hoisting strap 17. is broad and flat to prevent the load twisting and turning while being elevated, and it passes over the sheaveor pulley,

which prevents friction.

The lower end of the hoisting strap has a loop 26, and is connected with a grapple 21 by a coupling 22 consisting of a rectangular hanger-plate or piece 23, which is provided with a horizontal spindle 24, and a depending swiveled hook having its shank provided with a head and arranged in an opening of the bottom of the hanger piece. The coupling by this construction enables the operator to turn 7 5 or tilt a barrel or the like to place the same in proper position, and to empty the barrel when it is desired to transferits contents to a tank or other receptacle. The grapple 21 consists of a pair of arms or hooks provided in their shanks with adjusting perforations and connected by a movable bolt 25, which also secures a clevis to the shackle to enable the latter to be readily connected with and detached from the hoisting rope. I

It will be seen that the apparatus for hoisting and carrying loads is adapted for operation on all kinds of barrels, casks, bales, boxes, and the like, and that it will enable them to be readily handled. 0

Changes in the form, proportion and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or 5210- rificing'any of the advantages of this invention.

What I claim is- 4 7 1. In an apparatus for hoisting and carrying loads, the combination of a beam, a re silient cushioning track arranged on the upper face of the beam and bowed upwardly and r c o having its ends secured to the beam, and a hanger arranged on the track, substantially as described.

i 2. Inan apparatus for hoisting and carrying loads, the combination of abeam, a track arranged on the beam, a hanger having a roller arranged on the track, a hoisting strap connected with the hanger, means for winding up the strap, a grapple, and a coupling conmeeting the grapple with the hoisting strap, and consisting of a rectangular hanger piece provided with a horizontal spindle attached to the strap, and a hook depending from the hanger piece and having its shank swiveled thereto, substantially as described.

3. In an apparatus for hoisting and carrying loads, the combination of a beam, end supports, a track arranged on the upper face of the beam, a hanger depending from the track and provided at its top with a roller, a sheave arranged at the bottom of the hanger, a shaft journaled inthe hanger, gearing for winding the shaft, a flat hoisting strap secured to the shaft and arranged on the sheave and provided at its lower end with a loop, a grapple, and a coupling consisting of a rectangular hanger piece provided with a horizontal spindle arranged in the loop of a strap, and a hook depending from the hanger piece and having its shank swiveled thereto, substantially as described.

4:. In an elevated carrier, a frame provided with an upwardly bowed resilient cushioning track having its ends secured to the frame and having its intermediate portion located above the frame, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

TILMAN H. BUTCHER.
