  • Patent number: 10814469
    Abstract: A power tool has a handle operatively connected with vibration damping across a vibration gap to a drive motor with throttle element. An actuating device on the handle actuates the throttle element pivotably supported in a housing. A coupling element bridging the vibration gap connects actuating device to throttle element. The actuation movement of the actuation device is transmitted as rotation about an axis transverse to the vibration gap. An intermediate element is pivotably supported on an actuating element connected to the throttle element. The coupling element acts on the intermediate element and, over part of the actuation movement, contacts a contact region of the intermediate element. A guide for the intermediate element changes a position of the contact region relative to the housing based on a rotational position of the actuating element by changing a pivot position of the intermediate element relative to the housing.

  • Patent number: 10589411
    Abstract: A work apparatus has a first and a second assembly. The second assembly is mounted movably in relation to the first assembly via at least one antivibration element. Formed between the first assembly and the second assembly is a vibration gap, which is bridged by the antivibration element. The work apparatus has a switch, for actuation by an operator, which includes a first contact element and a second contact element. When the switch is closed, the first contact element and the second contact element contact each other. When the switch is open, the first and second contact element do not establish an electrically conductive contact. The second contact element is part of the second assembly. The first contact element is part of the first assembly and, when the switch is closed, the first contact element and the second contact element bridge the vibration gap between the first and second assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190100177
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for changing a forward displacement (104) of an occupant (106) of a vehicle (100) during braking of the vehicle (100). Initially, a seat belt status signal (112) which represents a status of a seat belt (108) for buckling in the occupant (106), and an occupant position signal which represents a position and/or location of the occupant (106) in the vehicle (100) and/or a change in the position and/or the location are read in. The two signals are processed to ascertain the forward displacement (104). Finally, at least one control signal (120, 121, 138) for controlling a braking device (122) of the vehicle (100) and/or at least one restraint means (108, 132) for restraining the occupant (106) is/are generated as a function of the forward displacement (104) in order to alter the forward displacement (104).

  • Patent number: 10215131
    Abstract: A power tool has an internal combustion engine with a carburetor with choke element pivotably arranged therein. A starter device with an actuating element has an operating position, off position, and at least one start position. A coupling element connects the actuating element with a choke actuating lever. The actuating element, upon adjustment from operating position into the at least one start position, moves the choke element into its start position. The connection between actuating element and choke actuating lever has a relative movement device which, in one position of the choke element, enables movement of actuating element relative to choke actuating lever. A holding device with guide contour is secured on the carburetor housing. In a start position of the choke element, the guide contour prevents movement of the actuating element relative to choke actuating lever from its start position into the operating position.
