A bearing assembly for a drive shaft guided in a protective tube is provided with bearing tube segments arranged in the protective tube one after another in a longitudinal direction of the protective tube. The bearing tube segments are penetrated by the drive shaft. The bearing tube segments include bearing sections. The bearing sections are provided with a central bearing sleeve and support elements projecting away from an outer circumference of the bearing sleeve. The bearing sleeve is radially supported by the support elements on an inner circumference of the protective tube. The bearing section with its bearing sleeve and support elements is formed as one piece. The bearing tube segments have a length measured in a longitudinal direction of the protective tube and the sum of the lengths of the bearing tube segments is greater than 60% of a length of the protective tube.


The invention relates to a system module, which is carried on the back, for a work tool. The system module has a stand surface for setting down the system module in an upright manner. A carrying arrangement for the system module has at least one back panel and at least one shoulder strap. The back panel is formed with an upper shoulder portion and with a lower back portion. The back panel is extended beyond the back portion by a hip portion. The hip portion can be pivoted relative to the back portion about a movement axis. The movement axis extends at the level of the stand surface of the system module.

A vacuum/blower device is provided with a drive motor and a fan operatively connected to the drive motor and driven by the drive motor. A switching device is provided that switches the vacuum/blower device from a vacuum operation to a blower operation and from the blower operation to the vacuum operation. A suction pipe with an intake opening is provided, wherein, in the vacuum operation of the vacuum/blower device, a suction air flow is sucked in from the intake opening toward the fan in a first flow direction. The switching device switches a rotational direction of the fan, wherein the fan in the blower operation conveys a blower air flow through the suction pipe in a second flow direction that is oriented from the fan toward the intake opening.

A power tool has a guide bar with clamping area to secure the guide bar to a power tool housing and with guide groove guiding a chain. The guide bar has side elements delimiting a main fluid channel and an auxiliary fluid channel. The main fluid channel has a main fluid inlet at the first side element in the clamping area, a first main fluid outlet at the deflection area of the guide bar, and a second main fluid outlet that opens into the guide groove at a first longitudinal side of the guide bar. A fluid quantity flowing in operation through the main fluid channel is greater than a fluid quantity flowing through the auxiliary fluid channel. The auxiliary fluid channel has a first auxiliary fluid outlet at the deflection area and a second auxiliary fluid outlet that opens at a second longitudinal side into the guide groove.

A power tool has a tool unit arranged between housing and housing cover. A stud bolt secured on the housing projects through a cover opening to the exterior. A support sleeve of the housing cover is provided with the cover opening and with a support surface for a fastening element screwed onto the stud bolt to secure the housing cover on the housing. The fastening element has a first section arranged at the cover exterior and delimited by a circumferential contour with flats. A maximum radial distance of the outer circumference of the support sleeve relative to the longitudinal center axis of the stud bolt at the support surface and at an adjoining first section of the support sleeve is at most as large as half the width across flats of the fastening element; a tool engaging the flats thus fits across the first section of the support sleeve.

The invention relates to a battery pack which is worn on the back and has an arrangement of rechargeable battery cells provided with a common electrical connection for a line to an electric load (M). A carrying arrangement includes at least one back panel and at least one shoulder strap. The back panel is configured with an upper, shoulder portion and with a lower, back portion. The line is guided into the carrying arrangement through an opening in the back panel and routed from the opening in the back panel to an outer periphery of the carrying arrangement. The line is guided onward along at least one section of the outer periphery of the carrying arrangement and is secured in a releasable manner by at least one fastening element in the region of the section of the outer periphery of the carrying arrangement.


A starter device for an internal combustion engine has an entrainer for coupling to the engine. The entrainer and an actuator of the starter device are mounted rotatably about a rotational axis. A damper spring is arranged between and operatively connects the entrainer and the actuator to each other. The starter device has at least one stud, on whose outer periphery the damper spring is mounted. The damper spring is a hinge spring wound from a spring wire. The cross section of the spring wire is rounded on the inner side of the spring wire. At least a portion of the cross section runs linearly on the outer side of the spring wire.

A solenoid valve for a fuel system has an electric coil and an armature disposed in a housing. A preassembled valve unit with valve seat, valve member, valve spring, and armature plate connected captively to each other is provided. In the valve unit, the valve seat is loosely secured between valve member and armature plate. The valve unit is inserted and secured in an open housing end and the valve spring contacts an inner shoulder of the housing. Armature plate and armature form a magnetic circuit. The valve member is supported on the armature plate and switched to open and close an outlet of the valve seat. By suppling current, a magnetic field is generated in the armature and attracts the armature plate into an operative valve position. The valve spring returns the armature plate into a rest position when the coil is currentless.


An assembly includes a handheld work apparatus and a support. The support has a holder worn by an operator and a connector arrangement which is held at a first attachment on the holder and on a second attachment on the work apparatus. The connector arrangement is mounted on the second attachment so as to be pivotable about a pivot axis and supports the work apparatus in a rearward direction in relation to the operator and prevents a rearward movement of the work apparatus. The center of gravity of the work apparatus and the first attachment have a spacing (a) to one another measured in a horizontal and lateral direction in relation to the operator. The holder has, at the first attachment, a bracing device for supporting the tilting moment acting on the first attachment by the weight force (F) of the work apparatus because of the lateral spacing (a).

A blower has a blower tube and a fan unit that conveys an air flow through the blower tube. The fan unit has a fan having a fan axis. The fan conveys the air flow in the direction of the fan axis. The air flow exits the blower tube in an outflow direction at a tube aperture. The handle has on its lower side a grasping point, which in the operating position of the blower, lies on a vertical axis through the blowers center of gravity. The tube aperture has a center axis that is oriented in the outflow direction. So that the forces received by the user at the handle during operation can be made smaller, it is provided for the spacing from the center axis of the tube aperture to the grasping point to be smaller than the spacing from the fan axis to the grasping point.
