Next, the operation and action of the vacuum cleaner according to the present invention constructed as above will be described. When cleaning a wide area of the floor, the end 34 of the handle 30 is inserted into the handle fixed storage 40 from above. At this time,
The inclined surface 36 provided at the tip of the handle 30 moves the fixing portion 44 of the handle fixing member 41 to the rear surface side of the cleaner body 2 against the compression spring 45, and at the same time, moves up and down the receiving portion 15
To move the wheel support member 12 downward. As a result, the wheel 16 projects downward from the wheel support portion 11. Then, the fixing portion 44 of the handle fixing member 41 is fitted into the fixing hole 35 of the handle 30 by the urging force of the compression spring 45 and its movement is stopped, and the handle 30 is fixed to the cleaner body 2. At this time, the grip portion 32 of the handle 30
Is located behind and above the cleaner body 2.

Further, the handle fixed storage section 40 has the wheel 16
Since it is provided in the vicinity of and on the suction port 3 side, a part of the operating force of the handle 30 mounted on the upper rear portion of the cleaner body 2 surely acts on the suction port 3 and the floor suction device 8 It is possible to maintain close contact with the floor surface. By the way, when the handle fixed storage portion 40 is provided at the rear of the wheel 16, not only the operating force of the handle 30 is not transmitted to the wheel 16, but also the suction port of the cleaner body 2 with the wheel 16 as a fulcrum during use. The 3rd side is easily lifted, and the suction performance is likely to be deteriorated.

Next, when cleaning a narrow floor area, furniture, desk, etc., the wheels 16 and the handle 30 collide with a corner, which is an obstacle and lacks a small turning ability. Then, it is desirable to remove the handle 30. Therefore, first, the rotating operation body 25 is rotated to rotate the pressing portion 2
The short diameter side h of 7 is positioned downward (state of FIG. 2). Then, the handle fixture 41 is pulled outward (in the direction of the arrow).
As a result, the fixing portion 44 is released from the fixing hole 35 of the handle 30 and the lock is released, and the handle 30 is brought into the free state and pushed up by the compression spring 21, so that the handle 30 is pulled out from the handle fixed accommodating portion 40. At this time, the wheel support member 12 rises due to the urging force of the compression spring 21, the vertical movement receiving portion 15 thereof comes into contact with the pressing portion 27 of the rotary operation body 25 and stops, and as shown in FIG. It is housed in the wheel support 11. This allows the handle 5 to be easily cleaned even in a narrow place.

Further, when the user wants to perform cleaning while the wheels 16 are taken out and the cleaner main body 2 is traveling, the rotary operation body 25 is rotated so that the major diameter side L of the pressing portion 27 is located below. As a result, the pressing portion 27 presses down the vertical movement receiving portion 15, lowers the wheel support member 12, and causes the wheel 16 to project. As a result, it is possible to carry out cleaning while the cleaner main body 2 is running while holding the handle 5.
