To a111 whom it May 00/U:C7W:
Be it known that 1 AnoLrrr PFL'ND a
citizen of the United States residing at Belvidere in the county of Boone State of Illinois have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shock-Loaders of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide a
combined shock-loader and extension-wagon
h o for conveying corn hay or grain from the field to the barn stack or machine used in its treatment.
The machine is especially designed for loading corn from a shock the stalks of
15 which are crossed and tied together at their upper ends by means of a corn-harvesting machine of novel construction of my invention wherein the shocks are unloaded from the said machine with their butts spread
20 apart as herein shown and in such manner that a divider or pilot may be easily passed through the opening in the middle and at the base of the shock with the butt-ends below the band straddling the pilot and then etc-
25 vated and conducted to a ridge-frame and spread more or less horizontally to a fixed section having horizontal and longitudinal frame-pieces which telescope with similar pieces of an extension-frame comprising the
30 rear section or sections of a wagon the latter
being gradually filled with the stalks shocks
of corn hay or grain until the wagon is filled
sufficiently to provide a hull load.
My invention consists in certain features combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter particularly described and claimed with reference to the accompanying drawings wherein
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a shock-4o loader and wagon with the extension-section of the wagon telescoped into the fixed section of the loader. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the extension-section of the wagon showing the same removed from the loader. Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the pilot showing the same lifting the shock. Fig. 4 is a detail view partly in section of the slid ably-secured wheels on the reach.
The main frame A has a rectangular bed a
5o the longitudinal members a' of which are
connected at the ends and middle by trans-
verse angular posts A' Aº Aº connected in
pairs having vertical sections a' at the mid-
dle and diagonal sections aº at the sides
which when bolted together and to the bed a
as at at a' a' provide a vertical center section and sloping side sections conforming to 1 the contour and extending from the end ! abutment of the pilot B near the ground to
an elevated ridge of more or less pitch ap- 6o proaching if desired nearly to the horizontal I thus providing an elevating-section C at the rear of the pilot and also providing a similar fixed section D the longitudinal members of which extend horizontally at the rear of the 65 elevating-section C which is adapted to receive and telescope with the corresponding horizontal members of an extension-frame of the rear section E of the wagon.
The wagon extension-section E is sup- 70 ported at its rear end upon wheels M' M' and consists of a rectangular base e with angular posts E' Eº corresponding with the fixed section D and has longitudinal strips e' e2 e3 of which the strips 0 º eº slide along the inner side of the strips a' in the same plane to thus provide an unbroken extension-surface over which the stalks or grain may be moved rearwardly to the rear section of the wagon until the latter is filled and then allowed to be 8o gradually withdrawn until the wagon is
loaded to its full capacity.
The pilot B consists of a center ridge-plate or divider b which extends from the point b'
to the back abutment and two elevating 85 side sections b º b" shaped in the manner of the moldboards of a lister-plow or snow-plow the divider b being designed to penetrate the shock and hold it from falling over while the elevating side sections pass beneath the butt- 90 ends of the stalks and lift them up to the carrier-chains C' Cº supported in transverse shafts C' C on the elevating section C by means of which the butt-ends of the shocks are carried. back to the fixed section D of the wagon. The vertical posts A' Aº A' of the wagon support sprocket - wheels F over which a cha n G is carried having fingers g thereon to engage with the crossed and bound middle portion It of the shock H and 10o carry it rearwardly to the fixed section D while the butts are carried at an equal speed by the carrier-chains C' C' as above de-
b scribed. Bolts C and g' respectively carried upon pulleys L'º secured to the front 105 axle K serve to drive the chains C' CI* and G and the ends of the axle are secured to and supported upon the wheels L L at the front end of the fixed section of the wagon-frame
and are journaled upon the said frame in a r r o
suitable manner. The rear end of said frame is supported upon suitable wheels M M.
The forward end of the extension-section E of the wagon is supported on the main 5 frame A and the wheels P slidably secured to the reach q. At each side of the main frame A at its forward end is provided a draft-bar 0 which extends from each side and which permits a draft-animal to be attached on
io each side the device to propel the same. A swingletree Xis secured on the rear end of the extension-section and permits a horse to be attached thereto to draw the same away with its load of shocks another extension-
's frame being inserted in the meanwhile.
The pilot B has a caster-wheel N sup-ported in bearings n in the abutment end thereof between the side sections b' b3 and is hinged at b4 to hinge-plates b' projecting
20 from the forward end of the platform. Said pilot is also provided on its sides with knife-edges b1 adapted to sever the butts of the stocks should the same remain fast in the ground.
25 The shock H is left standing in the field when delivered from my improved corn-harvester in the form and manner shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings. This mode of forming a shock is best accomplished by overlapping
30 the tops of the stalks in equal quantities and then tying them together the butts being then adapted to turn down and stand in a ridge or peak with a space between the butts through which a beam or pilot may be
35 passed to elevate the shock upon the wagon or carrier to be thereby conveyed to the barn stack or rack or machine and deposited either in the ridge fold or in the flat as may be required.
4o I claim as my invention and desire to se-cure by Letters Patent-
1. In a shock loader and carrier the combination with a carrier-platform having a ridge-shaped elevating-section a similarly-
45 shaped fixed section and a pilot at the for-ward end of the frame adapted to spread the shock and hold iL to straddle the ridge of the carrier-platform.
2. In a shock loader and carrier the combi-
5o nation with a carrier-platform of a pilot divider and elevator hinged to the forward end thereof and adapted to be tilted to raise and
lower the point of the pilot from the ground substantially as described.
3. In a shock loader and carrier the combination with a carrier-platform of a pilot hinged to the forward end thereof and a supporting-wheel at the rear end of the pilot substantially as described.
4. In a shock loader and carrier the combi- 6o nation with a carrier-platform and wheel-supports of a pilot-divider at the forward end thereof an elevating and carrier section comprising a center ridge forming a rear extension of the pilot and a carrier-belt and pul- 65 leys supported upon the apex of the ridge and driven from the wheel for carrying the material rearwardly upon the ridge substantially as described.
5. In a shock loader and carrier the combi- 70 nation with a carrier-platform having a center ridge extending longitudinally thereof a pilot at the forward end of the platform a carrier-belt and pulleys at the apex of the ridge and a carrier belt or belts supported upon each side of the ridge and extending upwardly and rearwardly from the rear end of the pilot substantially as described.
6. In a shock loader and carrier the combination with a carrier and platform having 8o wheel-supports and having a center ridge extending longitudinally thereof a carrier and elevating section at the forward end of the platform a fixed carrier-section at the. rear end of the platform and an extension 85 wagon-section having a wheel-support and adapted to telescope with the fixed carrier-section substantially as described.
7. In a shock loader and carrier the combinn Lion with a carrier-frame of a pilot-divider 90 hinged at the forward end thereof and provided at each side with a cutting-blade.
S. In a shock loader and carrier the combination with a carrier-frame of a pilot-divider hinged at the forward end thereof knives on said divider an elevator on the carrier-frame and a section telescoping with the rear end of said frame adapted to be re-moved therefrom.
