  • Patent number: 10039367
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure are directed to a back-mounted power tool system. The power tool system includes a battery package that can be used on other power tool systems, a backpack apparatus, a power tool, and a connecting member. The backpack apparatus includes a backpack harness to mount the backpack apparatus onto a user's body and a first connector to removably couple the battery package to the backpack apparatus. The power tool includes a motor driven by a power supply from the battery package. The connecting member transfers a weight of the power tool and/or a force received from the power tool to the backpack apparatus by rotatably coupling the power tool to the backpack apparatus. The connecting member further enables the power tool to rotate about a first rotation axis or a second rotation axis, the first rotation axis being perpendicular to the second rotation axis.

  • Patent number: 9648805
    Abstract: A locking device includes an operating lever, a base and a repulsion generating member, wherein the operating lever has a releasing position and a locking position relative to the base, and the repulsion generating member is arranged between the base and the operating lever and generates a repulsion force for application to the operating lever during movement from the releasing position to the locking position. When the operating lever does not completely reach the locking position due to abnormal operation, the repulsion generating member will cause the operating lever to return to the releasing position thereby provide an indication. The locking device can thus provide an indication when the locking operation does not reach the correct position, thereby avoiding user confusion and abnormal operation.
