Abstract: front page image
(EN)A new and improved string trimmer (10) is disclosed, which includes a steerable front wheel (24). The string trimmer has a spindle assembly that extends downwardly from the cutting deck (34), the spindle assembly (12) having a spindle housing (14) and a spindle (22), the spindle housing (14) rotates, while the spindle (22) remains stationary. This configuration of the spindle assembly allows the steerable front wheel (24) to remain stationary, while the spindle housing (14), which contains the cutting string (28), to rotate, thereby allowing the front wheel to be steerable.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une nouvelle tondeuse à fil (10) ayant connu des améliorations. Cette tondeuse comprend une roue avant orientable (24) et un ensemble tige qui s'étend vers le bas, à partir du plateau de coupe (34). Ledit ensemble tige (12) présente un boîtier de tige (14) et une tige (22). Ledit boîtier de tige (14) est rotatif, alors que la tige (22) reste fixe. Cette configuration de l'ensemble tige permet à la roue avant orientable (24) de rester fixe pendant que le boîtier (14), qui contient le fil de coupe (28), tourne, ce qui permet à la roue avant d'être orientable.
