UNITED STATES WASHINGTON GLAYPOOLE, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
UNLOADIN'G APPARATUS.
Specification of'Letters Patent.
Patented June 9, 1908.
Application 1ed July 31, 1907. Serial No. 386,429.
To all whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that I, WASHINGTON CLAY- PooLn, citizen of the United States, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Unloading Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention pertains to apparatus for unloading substances, particularly coal, from wagons and other vehicles; and it contemplates the provision of an efIicient apparatus through which coal may be conveyed from the end of a vehicle body and discharged laterally in one direction or the other to a sidewalk or the like.
The invention also contemplates the provision of an apparatus for the purpose stated, adapted when not in use to be conveniently fastened close to the end of the vehicle body so as not to form a considerable projection at such end. 4 Other objects and advantages of the invention will be fully understood from the following description and claims when the same are read in connection with the drawings accompanying and forming part of this specification, in which:
Figure l is a perspective view illustrating the apparatus constituting the preferred embodiment of my invention as properly arranged relative to a wagon body to convey coal or other substance from the rear end of the body and discharge the same to a point at the left hand side of the body. Fig. 2 is a rear elevation showing the apparatus as secured in`idle position against the end wall of the wagon body. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section taken in the plane indicated by the line 3 3 of Fig. l, looking downward, but showing the chute of the apparatus as reversedfi. e., positioned to discharge the coal at 4the right hand side of the wagon body. Fig. 4 is a longitudinal vertical section taken in the plane indicated by the line 4 4 of Fig. 3.
Similar letters designate corresponding parts in all of the views of the drawings, referring to which: A is a wagon body having at its rear end a discharge a. This discharge a is preferably in the form of an opening formed in the rear end wall t of the body; and it is by preference designed to beclosed by a vertically slidable door c, best shown in Figs. '3 and 4.
B is the spout of my novel apparatus. C is the transverse chute thereof.
D is a spring catch connected to the bottom of the body A and designed to cooperate with a lug E on the spout B in order to retain the spout in the working position shown in Figs. l, 3 and 4, and F is a cable, preferably in the form of a chain, connected to the wall b of the body at a point above the opening a and having for its office to retain the spout B and chute C in the idle position shown in Fig. 2.
The spout B is preferably formed of sheet metal shaped as illustrated, and its side walls are connected to a rod G, journaled in bearings II carried by the end wall l) at the opposite ends of the opening a. Adjacent to its outer end the said spout B is provided with a cross-bar d for the connection of the chute C, and at its inner end the bottom of the spout is provided with a lip e which, when the spout is in working position, is designed to rest on the bottom wall of the opening a after the manner shown in Figs. l and 4. The chute C is also formed of sheetmetal, and its shape in cross-section is definitely illustrated in Fig. 4. It is open at one side throughout its length and is provided across said opening at a point above its discharge end with a cross-barf to which is connected one end of a longitudinal central rod I, the opposite end of which is secured in the main portion of the I chute, as indicated by g in Fig. 3. Between the said rod I of the chute C and the crossbar d of the spout vB is interposed a loose connection J which, as best shown in Fig. 4, is made up of an eye h swiveled to the bar d, a link i connected to the rod I, and a linkj connecting the said eye h and link i.
When the chute C is in the position shown in Fig. l, relative to the spout B, one wall of' the opening in the chute bears against the underside of the spout. Then when it is desired to reverse the chute-i. c., adjust it to the position shown in Fig. 3, it is simply necessary to first swing the chute rearward to enable it to clear the rear end of the spout B, then swing the chute transversely of the wagon toward the right, and then permit the chute to swing forward until the opposite wall of the opening in the chute bears against the underside of the spout. To adjust the chute from the position shown in Fig. 3 to that shown in Fig.` l, the operation described is simply reversed. l
In the practical use of my improvements, the opening c is closed through the medium of the door c while the loaded wagon is en route to its destination, and the spout -B andf chute C are fastened close against the end wall b of the wagon body A through the cable F which from its point of connection to the,
ythereon is swung downward until the lip c of the spout brings up on the bottom wall of the opening a, and the lug E of the spout is engaged with the catch D of the body A. When the spout B is thus secured against casual movement, and the door c is raised above opening a, as shown in Fig. 4, it will be seen that coal may be readily shoveled from the interior of the bodyA into the spout B; and it will also be seen that the said coal will pass from the spout B to the' chute C, and will be conveyed by the latter in a direction transverse with respect to the body A and discharged at a point at one side of the said body. When the chute C is arranged as shown in Fig. 1, the coal will be discharged at the left hand side of the body A, but when the said chute is reversed and arranged in the position shown in Fig. 3, the coal will be discharged atthe rightliand side of the body A. Thus it will be seen that irrespective of the direction in which the wagon moves alongside the curb of a sidewalk, my novel apparatus may be made to discharge the coal laterally upon the sidewalk.
Subsequent to the unloading of the wagon body A in the manner described, the spout B and the chute C are swung upward to the position shown in Fig. 2 and are secured in such position through the medium of the cable F, after which the door c is movedl downward to close the opening a and adapt the body to receive another load. With the spout B and chute C secured in the idle position stated it will be readily appreciated that said spout and chute offer but a slight projection at the rear end of the body A as is `pended.
When the wagon arrives atl Having described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters-Patent, is:
1. An unloading apparatus for wagons and other vehicles, comprising a spout, and a `from one position to a reverse position.
2. An unloading apparatus for wagons-and other vehicles, comprising a spout having-a cross-bar adjacent to its youter end, anda chute disposedat a right angle to the spoilt and vhaving an opening in its top, a cross-bar and a longitudinal rod connected to its main portion and said cross-bar and also having the side walls of its said opening arranged, in different positions of the chute to bear against the underside of the spoutgthe longitudinal rod of the chutebeing loosely connected with the cross-bar of the spout and the chute `being arranged, when moved out of engagement with the spout, to be swung vertically from one position to La reverse position.
3. The combination of a vehicle bodyhaving a discharge opening, a vertically swinging spout hinged to said body and arranged in one position to receive from saiddischarge opening, a chute connected and ymovable with the spout and arranged to receive therefrom and also arranged to discharge laterally relative to the spout, and means for removably securing the spout and chute against the body when the same are swung upward.
4. The combination of a vehicle body having a dischar e opening, a vertically swinging spout hingec to said body and arranged in one position lto receive from said discharge opening andhaving a lug on its under side, a resilient catch carried by the body and arranged when the spout is in its lower posif tion to engage the lug thereof, a chute connected and movable with the spout and arranged to receive therefrom and also arranged to discharge laterally relative to the spout, and a cable connected to the body and arranged to be passed over the chute and the spout and under the catch and having means at its free end whereby it maybe connected detachably with the body.
5. The combination of a vehicle body having a discharge opening, a vertically swinging spout having a rod j ournaled in bearings on the body and also having a cross-bar adjacent to its outer end, said spout being arranged in one position to receive from said discharge opening and being provided withv spout is in its lower position to engage the lug thereof7 a chute arranged to receive from the spout and also arranged to discharge laterally relative thereto and having a crossbar and a rod connected to said cross-bar and its main portion, a connection between the cross-bar of the spout and the rod of the chute comprising a member swiveled in the cross-bar, and a cable connected to the body l0 and arranged to be passed down over the chute and the spout and under the catch and having a hook at its free end for the purpose set forth,
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing wit- 15 nesses.
