Field of the invent#on :
The invention relates generally to frame stitictures but more particuiarly to
stucture used fur supporting objects and equipment on an ATV_
Background of #!w rmverttion :
Four wheel ATVs are used for a varieiy of purposes rangng from mere leisure
activities to uses as a workhorse in forestry and other demanding work
According to the requirements, various accessories and modifications to the
ATV have been made over the years. Some of the modifications include creating
framelike sbvcture capabie of accepting aceessories such as a hoist or a cnane
other frame structures are used for carrying or transporfing heavy or large
Some of those frame structures use an ezisEing ball hitch on the A7'V as a
hooking the frame struceure in a semi permanent fashion, atlmrs use the
footrests of the AN as an additional support point for the frame structure.
the great variety of tasks an ATV is r quired to do, there is plenty of room
for a variety
of types of frame structures_

SUM Y OF THE IIVYE,IynoN.
In view of the needs for various types of frame structures, the present
which will be described s+ubsequently in cyr+eater detail, is to provide
advantages which' are;
To provide gn easily mountable and clamountable frame strucbure.
To provide a frame struckire that uses already avaNable attachment and support
means on the ATV_
To provide a frame stix:tun: that has collapsible eAensions that compact the
the frame structure when riot in operating mode.
To attain these ends, the present invention generaliy comprises a frame
made out af tubing making out three sides hingedry aftched to eaM other and
a hitch bail attachment and dip on attadiment to a cross beam which is
attached to the frame of the ATV. The frame sbvcxum has a pair of extending
which aCcessories or objects can be attached.
There has thus been outlined, rather broadly, the more important features of
invention in order that the det=aited descdption thensaf that follows may be
understood, and in order that the present contributien to the art may be

QETAILEh DESCRIPTION OF ]liE PREEMRRED EIIABODIMENT
An extemal, removable frame structure for AN (10) has three sides; a rear (14)
two lateral sides (16, 16')_ Each near and sides (14, 16, 16) being generally
of bent tubings (12) which, according to the type of manufacturing process
can be constituted of several permanently conneeted pieces forming the rear
sides (14, 16, 96') or a single bent piece with both ends oonnecxed together.
lateral sides (16, 16) are firingedfy attached to the rear (14). The rear (14)
attachment bracket (18) onto which attaches, in a semi permanent fashion, an
(20) which has a hitch balf attad?rnent (22) for hitching onto a bail hitch af
(not shown). Of ea,rse, there could be other types of attaohment possible
known in the art and could fall within the scope of the invention.
Each side (16, 16') has an extension arm assembly (24, 24') and Gip-on
brackets (26, 26') which dip onto a cross beam (26) for quick and easy
from the the cross beam (28) which is itself attached undemeath the frame of
(not shown) in a more permanent fashion by way of AN frame attachment brackets
(29). Instead of being attached to the cross beam (28), the sides (16, 16')

on the footrests (not shown) of the ATN as is Known in the art_ Each extension
assembly (24, 24') is pivotaaly attached to the side (16' 16') and witi pivot
until stopped by a rod (30, 3(") which temporarily attaches to the extension
assembly (24, 24') on one extremity and is permanently pivotally attached to
(16, 16). Each rod is corrtigured so as m receive a variety of aaoessories on
(32, 32'). For example, Fig, 2a shows a cradle and chain assembly (34, 34')
carrying logs (not shown). fn this particular case, where kxjs or tnee trunks
are to be
ranied, a hoist (not shown) attached, in whole or in part, to the frame
can lift the logs and place them into the cradle and chain assembly (34, 34').
frame shucture (10) is capable of accephng damping or attachment means=
to hold such accessories as a hoist (not shown) and other types of accessories
oooperate with other components oonnected to the stem (32, 32') It should be
understood that the stems (32, 32') and the exterMSton ami assembly (24, 24')
also support a variety of accessories.
By extending outwardly, the extension arm assembiy (24, 24') provides
unencoumbered carrying of Wge objects wh~1e maintaining a low center of
excellent balance to the ATV.
As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the present
invention, the same should be appamnt frmn the aborõQ desqlption.

With respect to the above description then, it is to be realiaed that the
dimensiortal relationships for the parts of the invention, to indude
variations in size,
materials, shape, form, fu+v#ion and mwrnier of operation, assembly and use,
deemed readily apparerd and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all
relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and desr.ribed in the
intended to be encompassed by the present invention.
Therefore, the for+4gaing is considered as iltustrative only of the principles
