Windshield Wiper

The first windshield wipers were
operated by hand.

A lever located above the
windshield, inside the cab,
connected to the outside
through the wall to the wiper.

By flipping the inside lever
back and forth, the wiper
cleaned the windshield.

In the next improvement to
the windshield wiper a
vacuum powered motor was
employed to operate the wipers.

The vacuum was produced
by the vacuum of the engine.
One of the drawbacks of the
vacuum driven motor was
the vacuum dropped
considerably when the vehicle
went up a hill or when the
engine was under heavy load.
With less vacuum the wipers
slowed or stalled until the
vacuum improved.

With a more powerful battery
and generator, the electric motor
was a good choice to power
the windshield wipers.

Now the wipers would not slow
down on hills, and the speed
of the wipers could be selected.

To day with electronics
employed in the operation of
the wipers, they can even
respond to rain, without
manually turning a switch.

With electronics the wipers
can be set to delay at
infinate settings.
