Title: SUPPORT ASSEMBLY FOR MOUNTING AN ACCESSORY TO A WORK UTILITY VEHICLE
Abstract:
A single operator is able to couple and decouple a work accessory from a UTV by employing a mounting mechanism comprising a channel assembly coupled to the UTV having channels adapted to receive rails of a rail assembly mounted to the work accessory. Wedges associated with the rails and wedge plates associated with the channels at the distal ends of the rails and channels and rail locks at the proximal ends of the rails and channels are employed to secure the rails in the channels to couple the work accessory to the UTV. Adjustable legs coupled to the rail assembly are used to support the work accessory when not coupled to the UTV, to level and stabilize the work accessory, and to adjust the height of the rails relative to the bottom of the channels when coupling and decoupling the UTV and work accessory.
