Title: DEVELOPER CONTAINER, AND IMAGE FORMING DEVICE EQUIPPED WITH SAME
Abstract:
A developer container (30) is provided with: a container main body (31); a lid (32); a stirring member (34); and an input gear (36). The container main body includes: a base (310); an opening (31P) that extends in the lengthwise direction; a first side wall (31R) and a second side wall (31L); and an accommodation space (30S) in which a developer is accommodated. The second side wall has a bearing (312) arranged opposing the accommodation space. The first side wall is provided with: a shaft hole (313S) that establishes communication between the outside of the container main body and the accommodation space; and a support part (313T) that supports a distal end of a coupling (342) of the stirring member from below to prevent the stirring member from falling onto the base in a state in which a distal end shaft (341) of the stirring member is inserted into the bearing and the coupling is arranged opposing the shaft hole.
