Acoustic Tractor

There is shown and described an improved acoustic hood for use with a tractor feed attachment for a high speed printer or the like.

Fig. 1 shows a front view of the acoustic cover 2 in place to dampen the noise caused by paper passing through tractors 4. The device consists of side portions, conforming in general shape to that of the tractor mounts, and a moveable door 6. The housing is foam lined as a further noise deterrent and, additionally, is rubber shock mounted in the printer to minimize vibration. Fig. 2 is a rear perspective view of sound hood 2 showing the paper path in and out slots 8 and 10 provided for that purpose.
