DUMPlNG-WAGON.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 795,172, dated July 18, 1905.
Application filed July 12, 1904. Serial No- 216,278.
To all, whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, HENRY W. SAssE, residing at Wilmington, county of Newcastle, Delaware, and WILLIAM M. CONNERY, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, citizens of the United States, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Delivery-Wagons, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
Our invention relates to delivery -wagons for delivering coal or other like substances in bulk; and it consists in aeonstruction of wagonbody by which the coal may be delivered into a chute extending from the side of the cart without swinging or turning the body.
In delivery-wagons for coal in which a chute is used for guiding the coal to the coal hole or bin and in which the body of the wagon is tilted so that the coal will run or slide into the chute it has been customary heretofore to arrange the chute to lead from the rear end of the wagon, the front end being raised to give the necessary inclination to cause the coal to run into the chute. In order to use a delivery-wagon so constructed, it is necessary for the wagon to be backed up to the curb, leaving the wagon extending into the roadway its full length, and in narrow streets more or less completely obstructing traific, and in narrow streets through which street-railways run often delaying the passage of street-cars.
By the use of our invention the street is obstructed only to the extent of the width of the wagon instead of its length and will not interfere with the passage of street-cars.
Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 is a side view of our invention, showing the body-seetions tilted. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the bod y-seetions in normal position resting on the sills of the wagon-body, and Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the invention.
7 In the drawings, A represents the sills or frame of a cart supported in the usual way on wheels. (Not necessary to be here shown.)
Midway of the length of the sills a hopper B is permanently secured, the hopper comprising end walls B, preferably arranged to flare ,tilting the sections F and G.
outwardly, having legs B, the lower ends of which are secured to the sills A. The end walls of the hopper are preferably connected by a central partition B, and the hopper is open on both sides.
Cross-bars O connect the legs B of each of the end walls B, and each of these cross-bars is provided midway of its length with a screwthreaded aperture through which passes a screw D, provided at its lower end with a handle or other means for rotating it by hand. The screws Dsupport at their upper ends a plate or table E, which forms one section of the delivery-chute, the other sections E of the chute being arranged to telescope and being of such length that when closed together they will rest on the plate E and when the plate E is raised by the screws D it will be brought up into position to close the open bottom of the hopper.
The wagon-body is formed in two sections F and G, each hinged or pivoted to the end walls B of the hopper and so arranged that when tilted they will both discharge into the hopper B. The sections F and G are preferably provided with inclined bottoms F and G, and on their ends adjacent thehopper these bottoms are preferably extended slightly beyond the points at which the sections are hinged or pivoted to the hopper.
Any convenient means may be provided for The means shown consist of arms I, pivotally connected to the sides of the sections F and G and having their lower ends adapted to be moved along Ways J, carried by the sills A. Chains K are connected at one end to the lower ends of the arms I and at their other ends connected to windlasses L and M. The windlasses L and M may be arranged to be independently rotated, but are preferably arranged to be simultaneously rotated by gear-wheel N, provided with a handle N, arranged between the windlasses and in mesh with gears L and M, carried by the windlasses L and M.
The rear body-section G is preferably provided at its rear end with a delivery-spout O of usual construction, controlled by sliding gate P, and both body-sections are preferably provided with slide-doors Q above the points at which they are pivoted to the hopper. The windlasses are preferably arranged either forward of or to the rear of the hopper, and if mounted on the sills the sides of the bodysection beneath which they are arranged may cut away, as shown at R, to fit over them. The body-sections are preferably formed from sheet metal and may or may not have their upper portions flared.
In use the wagon, with one or both of its body-sections filled with coal or other material to be delivered, is driven up close to the curb, so as to offer the least possible obstruction, and the screws D are operated to lower the plate or table E and permit the sections of the chute to be drawn out, the screw D on the side next the curb being lowered more than on the other side, so as to give the chute the necessary inclination. The slide-door Q of one or both of the body-sections is then opened, and the windlasses are operated to tilt one or both of the body-sections. When tilted sufiiciently, the coal or other material will slide from the body-section into the hopper and through the open bottom of the hopper onto the chute, by which it will be guided to the coal hole or bin into which it is to be delivered.
It should be understood that we do not desire to be limited to the particular means shown for tilting the body-sections, nor do we desire to be limited to the precise construction shown and described, as it is obvious that this construction may be modified in many Ways without departing from the spirit of the invention. I
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. In a delivery-wagon, a hopper centrally and longitudinally attached to the sills thereof, body-sections pivoted to said hopper on each side thereof, means to swing said sections upwardly about their pivots, said sections having inclined floors, and a chute adjustably supported beneath said hopper to receive the contents of said sections.
2. In a delivery-wagon, a central hopper supported on legs attached to the runninggear of the Wagon, two body-sections pivoted above their vertical centers to said hopper one on each side thereof, means to swing said sections on their pivots and a chute adjustably supported beneath said hopper from the legs thereof to receive the contents of said sections.
3. In a delivery-wagon, a central, vertical hopper supported above the running-gear of the wagon, a telescopic chute centrally supported beneath said hopper, means to raise and lower said chute, a pair of body-sections having inclined floors pivotally supported one on each side of said hopper, the floors of said sections projecting from the walls thereof so as to substantially contact with said chute when the latter is in its elevated position, means carried by the running-gear of the wagon to swing said sections upwardly about their pivots and doors at the ends of said sections adjacent to the pivots thereof.
4. Ina delivery-wagon, a central, longitudinal, elevated hopper having flaring ends and open at the sides and bottom, a telescopic chute mounted beneath said hopper, means to raise and lower said chute, said chute when raised and closed operating to close the bottom of said hopper, body-sections pivoted to said hopper on each side thereof, said sections havinginclined floors adapted, when said sections are raised, to deliver the contents thereof to said chute, means to raise the outer ends of said sections and doors at the inner ends thereof to control the exit of the contents.
5. In a delivery-wagon, a central longitudinal, elevated hopper closed at its ends but open at its sides and bottom, a vertically-adjustable plate below said hopper, telescopic chute-sections carried by said plate, body-secs tions pivoted near their upper corners to said hopper near the upper end thereof, inclined floors in said body-sections running from points adjacent said pivots to the lower outer ends of said body-sections, and means carried by the running-gear of the Wagon to swing said body-sections on their pivots to deliver the contents thereof to said chute.
6. In a delivery-Wagon, a central, longitudinal, elevated hopper closed at its ends but open at its sides and bottom, a plate forming the first section of a telescopic chute supported beneath the open bottom of said hopper, independent means to raise or lower each end of said plate, so that it may be inclined toward either side of the wagon, body-sections pivoted to said hopper on each side thereof, and means to elevate said sections, the floors thereof being arranged, when said sections are elevated, to deliver the contents thereof to said plate and chute.
7. In a deliverywagon, a central, longitudinal, elevated hopper, closed at its ends but open at its sides and bottom, a central, vertical partition connecting the ends of said hopper, a vertically-adjustable plate, forming part of a telescopic chute, centrally supported beneath said hopper, a pair of body-sections pivoted to said hopper, one on each side thereof and means to simultaneously raise or lower said sections.
In testimony whereof we aflix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
