CLAUDE IIENNIESSEE, OF MACON, GEORGIA.

GUANO-DISTRIBUTER.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, CLAUDE Hnunnssnn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Macon, in the county of Bibb and State of Georgia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Guano-Distributers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in guano distributers, the object in view being to produce a simple and efficient device of this nature having various details of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts which will be hereinafter fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings and then specifically defined in the appended claims.

I illustrate my invention in the accompanying drawings, in which 1- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a guano distributer made in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a top plan view. Fig. 8 is a central sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on line l lof Fig. 1.

Reference now being had to the details of the drawings by letter, A designates the frame of the apparatus having a drop axle B on which the wheels D are mounted. One of said wheels is provided with laterally projecting lugs E, forming means for agitating the operative parts of the distributer.

Rising from the frame is a standard F to which a yoke G is fastened by means of a screw H and one end of said yoke is bent laterally and is apertured as at H for the reception of the tapering end K of the rod K which is fastened to the bottom of the receptacle N adapted to contain the fer- Specification of Letters Patent.

lower end thereof and which is recessed on opposite sides as at I.

A rod, designated by letter R, is fastened at one end to a lug J projecting from said flange and its other end is fastened to a swinging arm R pivotally mounted upon a pin PP which projects from a standard R secured at its lower end to the drop axle. The end of said swinging arm is adapted to be positioned in the path of said lugs upon the driving wheel whereby, as one lug comes in contact with the swinging bar, the latter will be tilted and a rocking movement will be imparted to the receptacle containing the guano to be distributed. A pin S projects from the bottom of the guano distributer and is tapered to a point and has a bearing in the horizontally disposed portion of the standard which supports said yoke.

A spring T is fastened at one end to a pin P upon. the standard and its other end engages a lug W upon the flangeat the lower end of the guano receptacle. Chutes V are mounted upon the frame, one adjacent to each exit opening in the receptacle and adapted to direct the guano as it drops from the latter. Suitable covering plows X, mounted upon the bars X, are provided for covering the guano after it has been distributed, and handles Y serve as means for guiding the apparatus.

In operation, as the wheel carrying the pins upon one face thereof rotates, it will be noted that each pin will cause the swinging bar to tilt, imparting a, partial rotary movement to the receptacle containing the fertilizer. After the free end of the swing ing member passes by the lug, the spring which is fastened at one end to the lug upon the flange and its other end to the standard will cause the receptacle to quickly return to its normal position and, as the lug to which the spring is connected comes in contact with the standard, a sudden jar will be given the receptacle which will have a tendency to throw the fertilizer through the exit openings. The swinging arm which is actuated by the lugs will. also impart a jar to the receptacle as it contacts with the next succeeding lug.

By the peculiar manner of mounting the receptacle, which is supported wholly by the tapering end of the rod within the re ceptacle guiding the aperture in the yoke and also by the lower tapering edge of the bottom of the receptacle, the friction of the receptacle is reduced to a minimum.

hat I claim to be new is 1 l. A fertilizer distributer consisting of a frame, wheels journaled thereon, lugs projecting from one wheel, a fertilizer receptacle, a pointed member projecting from the bottom thereof and having a bearing in the frame, a rod projecting upward from the bottom of the receptacle and having'a tapering end, a standard upon the frame, a yoke secured to said standard and having an aperture for the reception of the upper tap-ering end of said rod, means actuated by said wheel with lugs thereon for giving a partial rotary movement to the receptacle in one direction, and a spring for returning the re ceptacle to its normal position, as set forth.

2. A fertilizer distributer consisting of a frame, wheels journaled thereon, lugs projecting from one wheel, a fertilizer recep tacle, a pointed member projecting from the bottom thereof and having a bearing in the frame, a rod projecting upward from the bottom of the receptacle and having a tapering end, a standard upon the frame, a yoke adjustably mounted thereon and having a laterally extending apertured end for the reception of the upper tapering end of said rod, and means actuated by said lugs for imparting a rocking movement to the receptacle, as set forth.

3. A fertilizer distributer consisting of a frame, wheels journaled thereon, lugs projecting from one wheel, a fertilizer receptacle, a pointed member projecting from the bottom thereof and having a bearing in the frame, a rod projecting upward from the bottom of the receptacle and having a tapering end, a standard upon the frame, a yoke adjustably mounted thereon and having a laterally extending apertured end for the reception of the upper tapering end of said rod, a standard upon the frame, a member pivoted thereto and having one end in the path of said lugs, a lug projecting from said receptacle, a rod connecting said lug and member, a spring fastened at one end to the yokecarrying standard and engaging an apertured lug ina projection upon said receptacle, as set forth.

In testimony whereof, I hereunto afl'm my signature in presence of two witnesses.
