Abstract

This technical disclosure relates to a fixture to mount a vehicle in such a way that it can be used to rollover the vehicle for various purposes including demonstration, inspection etc. In tractor industry such fixture can be used to demonstrate importance of Roll over protection structure (ROPS). ROPS is an essential feature in a vehicle for safety of operator while operating on hilly areas OR on steep slope. This fixture has hydro electrically operated jack, connected to scissor frames (referred in figure 1) which further connect to horizontal frame on which vehicle is mounted. There is provision of rotating the vehicle by motorized gearbox about an axis along the driving direction to demonstrate “vehicle roll-over”.

Background:

Majority of farmers and contractors use vehicle for various field operations.  However there are some situations where farmers need to operate the vehicles on hilly areas OR on steep slope.  In all such situations there is possibility that vehicle might roll over on the ground and operator will fall down and whole vehicle weight may come on his body and may cause death.  In order to avoid such accidents tractors are provided with safety kit called “ROPS: Roll Over Protection Structure”.  In spite of having all such safety arrangement very few customers use this safety kit.

So there is need to create awareness about this safety kit in the society. Additionally it is required to have a fixture which will demonstrate the importance of ROPS on vehicle.  Further this fixture can be kept in various agricultural exhibitions where this fixture will showcase how ROPS will prevent operator’s death in case of vehicle roll over.

Description:

This Demo fixture has hydro electrically operated jack where it consists of plurality of cylinders which are connected to hydraulic power pack via cylinder synchronizers (e.g. flow divider valve or master cylinder etc.). These cylinders are connected to scissor frames (referred in figure 1) which further connected to horizontal frame on which vehicle is mounted. This frame on which vehicle is mount...
