  • Patent number: 9067292
    Abstract: A vacuum device for a drilling hand tool includes a housing, a connection piece, a blower, and a collecting vessel. A drilling tool can be plugged into and through the connection device along a working axis. The blower conveys dust-laden air from the connection piece into the collecting vessel. The connection vessel includes a tray cartridge which can be removed from the housing, and a locking bar. The locking bar is hinged on the tray cartridge or on the housing and can pivot between a locking position and an unlocked position. When the locking bar is in the locking position, it presses the tray cartridge against the housing to provide pretensioning.

    Abstract: A power tool, particularly a hammer drill, is equipped with a blower which is mounted on the output shaft of the motor which drives the tool element which is clamped in the chuck of the power tool. The particulate material which is removed by the tool element from a structure is entrained in a stream of air generated by the blower and conveyed toward the latter. Before the particulate material enters the blower, at least most of it impacts an impact member which extends across an inlet section of the conduit through which the stream of air passes, so that the impact member deprives the entrained particulate material at least of the greater part of the kinetic energy possessed thereby, before the particulate material reaches the blower and damages the same due to its high kinetic energy.
