Abstract

The invention relates to a cleaning device with a housing having a footprint for parking a container, and with wheels for moving the cleaning device. In order to improve the cleaning device such that a container can be fixed to the footprint in a simple manner, the invention proposes that at least one of the footprint protruding holding element is arranged on a first edge of the footprint, which on its side facing away from the footprint a concave recording has for a hinged to one side of the parked on the footprint container handle.

Description

  • The invention relates to a cleaning device with a housing having a footprint for parking a container, and with wheels for moving the cleaning device.
  • Such cleaning devices are used for example in the form of vacuum cleaners or in the form of high-pressure cleaning devices. They are used, for example, on construction sites or at other locations. The cleaning devices are equipped with wheels and can therefore be moved along a floor.
  • For transport to a job site, the cleaning devices are often positioned in a transport vehicle. Often the available storage space is limited in the transport vehicle. For this reason, in many cases, containers are placed on the cleaning devices positioned in the storage space, for example, tool boxes or other containers that receive utensils or accessories. When the transport vehicle reaches its destination, the containers as well as the cleaning device are removed from the transport vehicle and then transported to the actual place of use.
  • From the EP 0 916 302 B1 a cleaning device in the form of a vacuum cleaner is known, the housing has on the upper side a footprint with a recess. In the recess of the container can be used, which is thereby secured on the footprint against slipping. In addition, the container can be locked by means of locking elements in the recess. The locking elements are designed as sliding latch, which can be inserted into corresponding recesses of the container. The locking of the container on the footprint has the advantage that the vacuum cleaner can be moved together with the container by the user in the form of a single transport unit. However, it is necessary that the container has the dimensions of the recess and recesses into which the slidable latch can be inserted.
  • Object of the present invention is to provide a cleaning device of the type mentioned in such a way that a container can be easily fixed to the footprint.
  • This object is achieved in a cleaning device of the generic type according to the invention that at least one of the footprint projecting holding element is disposed on a first edge of the footprint facing away from the footprint has a concave receptacle for one on an end face of the footprint parked container hinged carrying handle.
  • In the invention, the idea flows in that tool case as well as other containers for utensils or accessories in most cases have on one side a carrying handle which is pivotally mounted. To determine the container, the carrying handle of the container is used in the cleaning device according to the invention. For this purpose, at least one holding element projecting from the footprint is arranged on a first edge of the footprint to which the container can be placed. The holding element has on its side facing away from the footprint a concave recording. The container with the pivotable carrying handle can be parked in such an orientation on the footprint that the pivotable handle occupies a position on the first edge of the footprint. It can then be pivoted about its pivot axis so far that it dips into the concave receiving the at least one retaining element. The holding element then overlaps the carrying handle, so that the container is fixed with its carrying handle on the holding element.
  • It is advantageous if at the first edge of the footprint at a distance from each other two holding elements are arranged. The holding elements have on their side facing away from the footprint each have a concave receptacle. This gives the possibility to introduce the swiveling carrying handle of the container in both shots and thereby set particularly reliable.
  • The pivotable carrying handle of the container is usually designed U-shaped and comprises two articulated on one side of the container support legs, which are connected to one another by their free ends via a support web. The two holding elements, which can be arranged on the first edge of the footprint, can assume such a distance from each other that the carrying legs of the carrying handle can each be applied to an outer side of a holding element. The outer sides of the holding elements are in this case formed by the mutually remote sides of the holding elements. The U-shaped carrying handle thus receives the two holding elements between them and thereby secures the container against slipping in the longitudinal direction of the carrying handle.
  • The at least one retaining element is preferably designed hook-shaped. It can then overlap with its arcuate end portion of the handle.
  • Preferably, the at least one retaining element is elastically deformable.
  • In a particularly preferred embodiment of the cleaning device according to the invention, the at least one holding element is designed as a latching element, with which the carrying handle of the parked on the footprint container can be latched. By means of the latching element can thus be achieved with the parked on the footprint container a releasable latching connection. As a result, the container can be fixed to the footprint in a structurally simple manner.
  • It is advantageous if at least one first stop element projecting from the footprint is arranged at a second edge of the footprint, which faces away from the first edge, with a first stop face. The stop element forms a lateral support for the parked on the footprint container. The container can be positioned between the at least one holding element, which is arranged on the first edge of the footprint, and the first stop element arranged on the second edge of the footprint, wherein it bears against the first stop face, and subsequently the carrying handle can be pivoted into a holding position, in which it engages in the concave receiving the at least one retaining element.
  • It is advantageous if at least one second stop element is arranged on the first edge of the footprint, which protrudes from the footprint and has a second stop face facing the first stop face. This makes it possible to support the container on the first edge of the footprint not only on the at least one retaining element but also additionally on the second stop element.
  • In this case, it is favorable if the at least one second stop element has an outer face facing away from the second stop face and the at least one holding element has a holding section projecting beyond the outer side of the second stop element. The holding portion may engage over the carrying handle of the container, which may be applied to the outside of the at least one second stop member, wherein it dips into the concave receiving the holding member.
  • The holding element projects beyond the second stop element in the direction of the surface normal of the footprint in an advantageous embodiment of the invention. The holding portion can thus protrude both in the direction of the surface normal of the outside of the second stop member and in the direction of the surface normal of the footprint on the second stop member and thereby reliably detect the carrying handle of the container.
  • It is advantageous if the at least one second stop element is rigidly connected to a holding element. This increases the mechanical strength of both the retaining element and the stop element.
  • Preferably, two holding elements are arranged at a distance from each other at the first edge of the footprint and at the opposite outer sides of the holding elements is in each case a second stop element positioned.
  • A particularly mechanically strong attachment of the container to the footprint is achieved in an advantageous embodiment of the invention in that adjoins the first edge of the footprint a side surface into which opens at least one mouth region of a storage space, wherein arranged in the storage space in a storage position a clamping element is that over the mouth area the storage space at least partially removed and can be converted into a working position for fixing the container to the footprint. In such an embodiment of the cleaning device according to the invention comes to fixing the container in addition to the at least one holding element which cooperates with the carrying handle of the container, at least one clamping element is used, with the aid of the container can be fixed to the footprint. To fix the container, the clamping element can be at least partially removed from the storage space. The storage space has an opening area which is arranged in the side surface, which adjoins the first edge of the footprint. About the mouth region, the clamping element is at least partially removed from the storage space. The clamping element can be guided around the container parked on the footprint. Since the mouth region of the storage space is arranged on the side surface, which adjoins the first edge of the footprint, the clamping element for fixing the container, among other things, can be guided around the container carrying handle which fits into the concave receiving element of the holding element arranged on the first edge dips. As a result, the carrying handle is acted upon by the clamping element in the direction of the concave receptacle with a clamping force which defines the carrying handle on the concave receptacle.
  • The tensioning element is carried by the cleaning device in the storage space and thus is available to a user at any time for determining a container available. After use, the clamping element can be returned to the storage room, where it can be stored.
  • It can be provided that the cleaning device has only a single storage space in the at the first edge of the Footprint subsequent side surface opens and in which only a single clamping element is arranged. However, it can also be provided that the cleaning device comprises a plurality of storage spaces opening into the side surface adjoining the first edge of the footprint, each receiving a tensioning element. In addition, it can be provided that a plurality of clamping elements are arranged in a storage position in at least one storage space of the cleaning device, from which they can be converted into a working position.
  • It is advantageous if the at least one storage space is arranged below the footprint. This makes it possible to fix the parked on the footprint container in a structurally simple way by means of at least one clamping element on the footprint, wherein he learns about the pivotable handle additionally fixing by means of at least one holding element. The clamping element can be removed at least so far from the storage space arranged below the footprint over the mouth region that the container can be fixed to the footprint by means of the clamping element. For example, the container including its carrying handle in the circumferential direction can be at least partially encompassed by the clamping element.
  • The footprint is preferably arranged at the top of the housing. This facilitates the positioning of the container on the footprint.
  • In an advantageous embodiment, the clamping element is at least partially pulled out of the storage space. This facilitates the handling of the clamping element.
  • It is advantageous if the clamping element against the action of a restoring force from the storage space is at least partially withdrawn.
  • A particularly simple handling when setting a container on the footprint of the housing results in an advantageous embodiment in that the clamping element has a first, fixed in the storage space end and a second, accessible via the mouth area from outside the storage room loose end. The clamping element can be grasped by the user at its loose end and then at least partially removed from the storage space. The end facing away from the loose end of the clamping element is fixed in the storage room. The user can guide the loose end around the container parked on the footprint and, in particular, around its carrying handle and fasten it to the cleaning appliance or else to the container.
  • In particular, when using two clamping elements, it has proven to be advantageous if they are each fixed with one end in a storage space and can be taken with its other end by the user and pulled out of the storage room.
  • Preferably, a fastening element is arranged at the loose end of the at least one tensioning element, for example a fastening hook. With the help of the fastener, the clamping element can be easily mounted in a working position on the cleaning device or on the container to set the container on the footprint.
  • Conveniently, the clamping element is elastically extensible. Preferably, the clamping element is stretchable by at least 50%, that is, it can be extended by a Dehnbelastung by at least 50%. It is particularly favorable when the tensioning element can be stretched by 100%, that is to say can be stretched to twice the length by means of a stretching load.
  • The clamping element may be configured in the manner of a tensioning strap or a tensioning cable.
  • The at least one tensioning element is arranged in an advantageous embodiment of the invention in the form of an elongated component in the storage space.
  • Alternatively it can be provided that the at least one tensioning element is wound up in the storage space on a reel.
  • The at least one storage space is preferably configured channel-shaped.
  • It can be provided, for example, that the housing of the cleaning device has a cover plate which forms the footprint on its upper side and at the first edge of the footprint comprises at least one holding part, which cooperates for fixing the container to the footprint with the carrying handle of the container in the cover plate of at least one storage space is integrated.
  • The cover plate is conveniently arranged on an upper housing part of the cleaning device. Preferably, the cover plate with the upper housing part is releasably connectable.
  • It is particularly advantageous if the cover plate faces away from the footprint Has underside, in which the at least one storage space is formed.
  • It can be provided, for example, that the at least one storage space forms a molded into the underside of the cover plate receiving channel. The receiving channel may for example have a U-shaped or C-shaped course in a bottom view of the cover plate. From the receiving channel, the clamping element can be pulled out in a preferred embodiment of the invention in the channel longitudinal direction at least partially.
  • It is advantageous if the cleaning device has fastening elements to which the clamping element can be fixed in its working position. The fastening elements can be designed, for example, in the form of fastening eyelets or fastening hooks, on which the tensioning element can be fastened in each case with one end, after it has been guided around one or more containers parked on the positioning surface.
  • The cleaning device preferably has a handle bar, because this facilitates the process of the cleaning device along a floor. It is advantageous if at least one fastening element for the at least one clamping element is arranged on the handle. The handle bar can preferably occupy a position oriented perpendicular to the footprint and thereby laterally support the container parked on the footprint. Conveniently, a plurality of fastening elements can be arranged on the grip bracket, to each of which a tensioning element can be fastened with one end. The fasteners, such as eyelets or hooks are advantageously arranged at different distances from the footprint. This facilitates the determination of containers of different sizes by means of the clamping element.
  • As already explained, opens the at least one receiving space in a side surface of the cleaning device, which adjoins the first edge of the footprint. At the first edge of the footprint at least one holding element is arranged, which cooperates with a carrying handle of the container. It is advantageous if the mouth region of the storage space is arranged adjacent to a holding element, because this gives the possibility to lead the storage space at least partially removable clamping element directly on the holding element along the mouth area, wherein the carrying handle of the container a position between the clamping element and can take the retaining element. In particular, it can be provided that the carrying handle of the container from the clamping element with a clamping force in the direction of the concave receiving the holding element can be acted upon. This ensures a particularly reliable determination of the container on the footprint.
  • Preferably, the mouth region of the at least one storage space is positioned below a second stop element arranged on the first edge of the shelf, which protrudes from the shelf and has a second stop surface. Thus, below the second stop element, a tensioning element can be removed from the storage area over the mouth region so that the tensioning element can embrace the container including its carrying handle for securing the container to the storage surface.
  • It is particularly advantageous if the cleaning device is pivotable together with a container arranged on the footprint about a common axis of rotation of two wheels. The cleaning device can then be moved together with the container in the manner of a sack truck. The container is by means of at least one holding element, which cooperates with the carrying handle of the container in the sense of a latching connection, reliably fixed to the footprint and can be moved together with the cleaning device.
  • It is favorable if the cleaning device is portable. This facilitates the transport of the cleaning device on uneven ground or over stages.
  • It is advantageous if the cleaning device has a pivotable in the footprint device handle. In an inoperative position, the device handle can be pivoted into the footprint, where it then does not protrude from the footprint and a container can be placed on the footprint without being affected by the device handle. If no container is positioned on the footprint, the device handle can be swung out of the footprint in an operating position in which he can be taken by the user to carry the cleaning device, for example via a step.

Subsequently, the carrying handle 125 so far down towards the outside 56 and 63 the stop elements 45 and 48 be pivoted until the support bar 128 after an elastic deformation of the first latching hook 51 and the second latching hook 58 in the concave shots 54 and 61 the two locking hooks 51 . 58 locks. In this locking position engage the holding sections 53 and 60 the two locking hooks 51 . 58 the carrying bridge 128 , The distance between the opposite outer sides of the two latching hooks 51 . 58 corresponds to the distance between the two support legs 126 . 127 , The first support leg 126 is thus at the second latching hook 58 remote from the outside of the first latching hook 51 on, and the second support leg 127 lies at the first latching hook 51 remote from the outside of the second latching hook 58 at. This is especially true 7 clear.
  • Due to the interaction of the carrying handle 125 with the two locking hooks 51 . 58 is the one on the footprint 38 parked first container 120 immovable at the footprint 38 held. The two latching hooks 51 . 58 form with the swivel carrying handle 125 of the first container 120 a detachable locking connection.
  • In addition to the detachable locking connection via the two latching hooks 51 . 58 and the carrying handle 125 may be the first container 120 by means of the two clamping elements 90 . 95 at the footprint 38 be determined. For this purpose, the two clamping elements can be attached to the fastening hooks 93 . 98 from the recording channels 71 . 72 be pulled out to the first container in a working position 120 to embrace. The clamping elements 90 . 95 can then each at one of the eyelets 108 . 109 . 111 to 114 of the handlebar 100 be determined. The clamping elements 90 . 95 not only the first container 120 but also surround with the latching hooks 51 . 58 latched carrying handle 125 taking on the carrying handle 125 a tension in the direction of the concave shots 54 . 61 exercise, so the carrying handle 125 particularly effective on the latching hook 51 . 58 is fixed.
  • On the first container 120 can be a second container 130 be placed, which is identical to the first container 120 , This is going out 8th clear. Both containers 120 . 130 can then work together from the two clamping elements 90 . 95 be grasped, which the carrying handle 125 of the first container 120 with a clamping force in the direction of the concave shots 54 and 61 apply. The two containers 120 . 130 are thereby at the footprint 38 set and can be shared with the vacuum cleaner 10 in the form of a single transport unit about the axis of rotation 16 the two wheels 14 be pivoted backwards so that the containers 120 . 130 along with the vacuum cleaner 10 can be moved along a floor in the manner of a sack truck.
  • After loosening the fastening hooks 93 . 98 from the eyelets 108 . 109 can the two clamping elements 90 . 95 again in the recording channels 71 . 72 be stowed. Due to the elastic restoring force of the clamping elements 90 . 95 these go after loosening the eyelets 108 . 109 independently in their storage position over. The second container 130 can then from the first container 120 be removed, and then the carrying handle 125 under elastic deformation of the latching hook 51 . 58 from the concave shots 54 . 61 be swung out, so that the locking connection between the first container 120 and the cover plate 30 is solved. Then then also the first container 120 from the footprint 38 be removed.
