MYRON L. VINANS, OF WACO, TEXAS.
WAGON-BODY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters, Patent N0. 683,828, dated October 1, 1901.
Application filed February 28,1901. Serial No. 4918- T0 cir/ZZ 'whom 'it ntay concern:
Be it known that I, MYRoN L. WINANs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Waco, in the county of McLennan and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wagon-Bodies; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, Vsuch as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in wagon-bodies, such as may be placed upon any suitable running-gear, and by the use of my said invention one wagon may be employed to accomplish the work ordinarily requirin g the services of several different styles of Wagons, as will hereinafter appear.
In order to more fully describe my said iuvention, reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a perspective view of a wagon embodying my said invention. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same, showing the wagonbody tilted and the rear gate lowered ready to load stock. Fig. 3 is a central vertical section through a wagon equipped with my improvements, the same being adapted for loading hay and the like. Fig. 4c is a side elevation showing the side or rack bars closed and the end-gates in an upright position, the Wagon being adapted to carry loose material. Fig. 5 is a front perspective view of the front end-gate, showing the detachable Windlass; and Fig. 6 is a similar view in detail, showing the automatic gravity-latch carried by the front bolsters.
In the accompanying drawings similar parts are indicated by the same letters of reference throughout the several views.
A represents the wagon-body, mounted upon the bolstersB B' of the running-gear fr, mounted upon the wheels X, which may be of any suitablejor desirable type. This body A is composed of the vfloor a, supported by the holsters B B, and the side base-boards a a', said iloor and base-boards being held together by the bottom strips a?.
A Az are the front and rear end sills, respectively, which are held fastened to the base part of the body, such as by means of the through-bolts a3. A3 represents perforated angle-irons secured to the upper side (No model.)
of each of these end sills A A2, the purpose of which will hereinafter appear.
C C are detachable side-boards adapted to be placed above the base-boards a. c c are posts or uprights adapted to beinserted into the sockets cui upon the base-boards a', thereby holding said side-boards securely in position. Secured to the tops of these posts are the ou tsetting brackets c. Fitting into these brackets c are the stakes D, which support the regularly-spaced bars or racks E in suoli a manner that when said stakes D occupy an oblique position (see Fig. 4) the bars E will close up and rest one upon anotheri n F is the front end-gate, comprising the two uprightsff' and the front board f2, which will be on a level with the side-boards C C, and the cross-bars f3, joining the uprights f4 is a cross-bar located in front of the front board f2, provided with the vertical openings f5 f5. f is a central upright, resting upon the cross-bar f4, provided at its upper end with the slot f7, adapted to receive a rope. G G are metal straps running from top to bottom of said side uprights ff', said straps being spaced from said uprights, so as to pass over the ends of the side-boards. g represents a pin passing through these straps G and secured to each of the uprights ff', the purpose of these pins being to hold said strap at the proper distance from the said uprights. g' g are hooks upon the lower ends of each of these uprights ff. H represents a windlass detachably mounted in the lower end of said end-gate, having a rope Il' adapted to be wound thereon, and H2 is a hook carried thereby. h represents holes passing through said windlass, adapted to receive a rod. h' isa ratchet-Wheel, securely fastened to said windlass and having the pawl h2, adapted to engage therewith. This windlass is held in position upon the uprights ff by means of the plates h3 h4, respectively. This plate h3 is slotted, so as to enable the removal of said windlass by swinging one end of said plate to one side, thereby releasing that end of the wiudlass.
P represents the rear end-gate, substantially a duplicate of the front end-gate, omitting the Windlass. When the rear end-gate is lowered, the sill A2 is removed from its place in the bottom of the wagon-body and IOO ceases placed in this opening at the end of the gate l adjacent the wagon to cover the opening.
J is a latch pivotally secured upon each of the uprights of the bolsterl, as by the pivotpinj. This latch normally rests in the position shown in dotted lines, as indicated by J', Fig. G. A
I represents a catch mounted to turn in the bolster B and engage in the recess j of the latch J, thereby holding the same in an upright position. Upon releasing this catch I the latch .I will drop down and is securely held in a horizontal position by means of the rest K.
L L are pins which are adapted to enter the apertures fif and through the angleirons A3, and thereby hold the front end-gate in an upright position, or when the end-gates swing outwardly they are held in anydesired position by the pins L being inserted in the holes M of the base-boards, said pins abutting against the pins g upon the end-gate. The lower ends of the end-gates are held in place by the hooks g thereon engaging with the tierods O beneath the Wagon-body, it being impossible to remove the end-gates until considerably lowered, thus preventing accidental displacement ot' the same. When the windlass is used, these pins are inserted in the holes 7l, thereby providing means for turning the same. The pins Il are adapte-d to hold the rear gate in the same manner as the front end-gate.
N represents through or tie bolts adapted to be passed through the outer metal straps G, side-boards C, and end-gates when the sides are upon the wagon, these tie-bolts tending to hold the same rigid and solid.
The Wagon, as shown in Fig. l, is equipped for carrying its bulkiest load and also for earrying stock, the rack or side bars being elevated and spaced apart and the end-gates in their uppermost positions. In Fig. 2 the wagon-body is tilted upwardly, the front part of the same being supported by the latches J J, which automatically engage the wagonbody on each side when the same is lifted to the proper height. The rear end-gate is also lowered and the rope II of the windlass is brought into use when loading live or dead stock. When used in this manner, the rear end sill A2 is removed from the base of the body and is utilized for the purpose of closing the opening' left in the end-gate when lowered. VVhen the Wagon has been loaded, the rear end-gate is raised, the tie-bolt N is passed through the gate and wagon sides, the sill A2 is restored to its proper position, and the front end of the wagon-body is lowered upon the bolsterB. This is accomplished by raising the latch J to an upright position and fastening the same by the catch I, the wagonbody then being free to descend. In Fig. 3 the same wagon is shown equipped as a haywagon. This is done by removing the side boards C and rack-bars E from the sides 0f the wagon, which is accomplished simply by lifting the side posts cout of their 'sockets d'1. The front and rear end-gates are given an overhang, the angle ol' which may be ad justed by means of the pins L L' being inserted in the holes M, thereby securing said the rope becomes tight, said rope being held tight by the pawl engaging the ratchet n upon the said windlass. In this way it is possible to carry enormous loads upon the wagon without the same spilling or breaking. For ordinary run-about purposes the endgates are both removed, leaving the base part of the body only. These end-gates are removed by swinging the same to their lowermost position and then lifting the hooks g', carried upon the ends thereof, from the rod O, as will be readily seen. Then hauling sawed wood, the end-gates are preferably secured in an upright position by passing the pins L L/ through the end-gates and through the angle-irons AS A3. Should it be desired to re move the windlass from the wagon, the retainingplate h3 is swung outwardly, as before explained, thereby releasing that end of the windlass, permitting it to be readily removed.
Fig. t shows the wagon equipped for carrying loose loads, such as grain, dirt, and the like. This transformation is made by swinging the upper ends of the stakes D forward, thereby closing the rack-bars E, so as to rest upon each other. The rear end-gate is then raised so as to occupy an upright position, the tie-rod N being passed through the same to retain it in position.
It is obvious that although I have shown only several different kinds of Wagons into which my invention enables a single wagon to be transformed it is obvious that many additional uses will suggest themselves to any one familiar with this class of wagons. It is also obvious that many changes might be made in the details of the same without departing from the spirit ot my said invention; but
