JOHN H. PRICE, OF NEAR MOUNT CORY, OHIO WAGON-RACK- SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 785,760, dated. March 28, 1905. Application filed December 13, I90 Serial No. 236,719.

To MU/ whom, it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JOHN H. PRICE, a citizen 7 of theUnited States,resi :ling n ear Mount Cory,

in the county of Hancock and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful VVagon-Rack, of which the following in a specification.

his invention relates to that class of wagonracks which are adapted to be converted so that they may be utilized for a variety of purposes such as, for instance, for the purpose of hauling such material as baled hay or corn in the stalk, which requires a flat wagon-bed, for hauling loose hay, which requires an extended Wagon-bed, for the purpose of hauling grain or live stock, such as hogs, which requires a suitably-constructed box, or for other purposes.

The principal object of the invention is to simplify the construction and to improve the operation of this class of devices; and with these and other ends in view, which will readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the improved construction and novel arrangement and combination of parts, which will be hereinafter fully described, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings has been illustrated a simple and preferred form of embodiment of the invention, it being, however, understood that no limitation is necessarily made to the precise structural details therein exhibited, but that the right is reserved to any changes, alterations, and modifications to which recourse may be had within the scope of the invention and without departing from the spirit or sacrificing the efficiency of the same.

In said drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a wagon-rack embodying the principles of the invention, the same being arranged for use as a stock-rack. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view. Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view looking in a forward direction.

Fig. 4' is a transverse sectional view looking in a rearward direction. Fig. 5 is ahorizontal sectional view taken on the line 5 5 in Fig. 8. Fig. 6 is a sectional detail view taken through the extremity of one of the bed-supporting braces. Fig. 7 is a perspective detail view of a portion of one of the side members of the device, showing one of the arms or brackets connected therewith.

Corresponding parts in the several figures are indicated by like characters of reference.

The improved wagon-rack includes a pair of longitudinally-disposed sills 1 1, which are adapted to be supported upon the bolsters of the running-gear, one of which has been indicated at 2 in Fig. 4 of the drawings, said bolsters being provided in the usual manner with standards 3 to support the said sills. The sills l I serve to support a plurality of pairs of cross-braces l 4, said cross-braces of each pair being suitably spaced apart, as will be best seen by reference to Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawings. Said cross-braces are preferably gained into the upper edges of the sills, which latter are thereby spaced and connected. Each of the sills is, moreover, connected with each pair of braces by means of obliquely-disposed clips 5 5. whereby the parts are firmly connected. The lower edge of each sill is provided with a recess 6, above which a rub-iron 7 is suitably secured. The flooring 8, which constitutes the bed of the device, is suitably secured upon the transverse braces 5 5, the ends of which latter are suitably extended beyond the side edges of the bed.

Each of the cross-braces 5 is provided near its extremities with bolts 9, extending vertically therethrough, for the purpose of preventing said braces from splitting under the strain to which they will be subjected. Each pair of braces are also connected at the ends thereof by means of horizontally-disposed bolts.10.

The sides 11 of the rack are composed of planks, to the outer sides of which are secured arms or brackets 12, composed of pieces of scantling of suitable dimensions, the inner sides of which contacting with the planks of which the side members are connected are beveled, as shown at 13, so that the lower ends of said brackets will extend downwardly and outwardly from the side members 11. These brackets are made of such dimensions and are disposed in such a manner upon the cured in position detachabl y.

side members 11 that they will [it between the projecting ends of the pairs of cross-braces 1 4B, the lower edges of the planks constituting the side members being adapted to rest upon the bed or flooring adjacent to the side edges of the latter. The arms or brackets 12 are provided in their outer sides with transverse notches 14, adapted when the side members are tilted to the position indicated in Fig. 3 of the drawings to engage the transverse bolts 10, connecting the ends of the cross-braces -21, whereby the side members will be partly supported in the extended position shown in said figure. The lower ends'of the arms 12 are cut off obliquely, as shown at 15, so that when the side members are extended the said lower ends of the arms or brackets will abut squarely upon the outer sides of the sills 1 1, thus affording a great additional support of the side members and enabling the latter to support heavy loads without the necessity of resorting to bolts or other fastening means for the purpose of seeu ring them temporarily in extended position.

When the side members 11 are elevated to the position shown in Fig. 1, they constitute the sides of a wagon-box, and when thus raised the inner sides of said side members are abutted upon the front and rear end'gates 16 and 17. Said front and rear end-gates are each provided with uprights 18, upon which the planks 19, constituting the end gates proper, are horizontally secured. The uprights 18 of said end-gates are extended downwardly through the wagon-bed and between the front and rear pairs of cross-braces, re spectively, ,as will be clearly seen in Fig. 2 of the drawings. The side members 11 when raised to abut upon the end-gates may be connected by means of hook-bolts, as shown at 20, or by means of draw-bolts of ordinary construction.

The upper ends of the uprights 18 of the front end casing are connected by spaced planks 21 for the convenient attachment of a booming-piece 22, which, as shown, consists of an iron pipe or red bent to form a yoke, the arms of which, are provided at their lower ends with offset portions forming shoulders 23, adapted to rest upon the upper edge of the end-gate proper, while the arms of the yoke rest against the sides of the spaced planks 21. The arms of the yoke are provided with eyebolts 24, extending through perforations in the uppermost plank 21 and provided with nuts 25, whereby thebooming-picce is se- Said boomingpiece may be secured either upon the outside or inside of the end-gate, as may be preferred, and said booming-piece may be extended upwardly to any desired height. The arms or side members of the yoke constituting the booming-piece are connected by means of a clamp 26, the side members of which are connected by means of a bolt 27, so as to permit said clamp to be adjusted vertically upon the booming-piece. One end of said clamp 26 is extended vertically to form a hook 28, which is serviceable as a line-support.

IV hen the side members are raised to constitute a wagon-box, extension-racks 29 may be mounted thereupon, said extension-racks being composed of planks 30, connected by vertically-disposed braces 31, which are secured to opposite sides thereof and which are extended downwardly, so as to engage the side members 11, as will be clearly seen in Figs. 1 and 1. Hooks 32 may be provided upon the end-gates to engage staples 33 upon the extension-racks for the purpose of securing the latter in position.

From the foregoing description it will be seen that a wagon-rack has been provided which is capable of varied and extended use. WVhen the side members are detached, a fiat wagon-bed is provided upon which material may be loaded between the end-gates, which are supported and strongly braced and reinforced by the uprights 18 being extended downwardly between the cross-braces supported upon the sills. When the side members 11 are placed in position, they may be folded up against the end-gates, so as to constitute a grain-box, or they may be folded down to the position shown in Fig. 3 to constitute a hay-rack. hen the device is used as a hay-rack, the booming-piece engages the front end of the pole or boom by which the load is secured. If the load is a small one, the pole may be secured under the adjustable cross-brace 26, which latter may be adjusted at anydesired elevation. Said booming-piece is readily detachable when its presence is not required. hen the side members 11 are elevated to form a wagon-box, the extensionracks may be used, transforming the device into a stock-rack. Thus it will be seen that the device may be readily utilized for agreat variety of purposes by merely making slight changes in the relative disposition of the parts thereof.

The improved device is simple in construction and may be manufactured ata moderate expense.
