are rigidly joined together atthe central portion
by a cross member l2 and at the lower portion
by a second cross member 13, and at the top
by a third cross member [4 that is tubular in.
form and over laps the upper ends of the frame
members l0 and II. The cross members 12, I3
and M are all rigidly attached, preferably by
welding, to the framemembers' l0 and l I. The
lower'endsof the frame members Ill'and H swing
