Abstract (en)

A power tool with an ergonomic handgrip includes a housing, a motor in the housing, a working end coupled to a front end of the housing, a handle extending distally from the housing, and a trigger coupled to the handle. The housing defines a tool axis, the handle defines a handle axis, and the trigger defines a trigger axis in its direction of movement. A first gripping region includes a rear concave recess on a rear end of the housing and a lateral concave recess along a lateral sidewall of the housing parallel to the tool axis. A vertical line extending from an innermost point of the rear concave recess intersects the trigger axis forward of where the trigger axis intersects the handle axis. A second gripping region includes a convex surface on a rear portion of the handle with an elliptical curvature having an eccentricity less than 0.5.
