[0012] Further, a collecting duct is arranged on the collecting cartridge for guiding air toward the filtering unit. The collecting duct is communicated at its upper end with a connecting duct arranged at a lower portion of the mounting cartridge. The collecting cartridge is cylindrical.

[0013] Further, the filtering unit includes: an air inlet duct that has an open end and a closed end, and is provided at its sidewall with filtering holes; a locating duct that is integrally formed with the air inlet duct at the open end of the air inlet duct, and an air outlet screen that is provided with air outlet holes and is accommodated in the locating duct.

[0014] Further, an annular groove is arranged at the rear end of the collecting cartridge, and the collecting duct is plugged in the annular groove.

[0015] According to the above technical schemes, when the motor operates, the blades are rotated to generate negative pressure, such that fallen leaves on the ground are absorbed into the casing. Further, when the motor operates, the blades are rotated to generate negative pressure, such that fallen leaves on the ground are absorbed into the casing. The blades are driven to rotate, and the cutting area is formed by the shredding mechanism. When the fallen leaves enter into the cutting area, the cutter of the cutting assembly cooperates with the secondary cutter of the cutting assembly to shred the collected fallen leaves. The shredded fallen leaves are absorbed again by the blades and are discharged out from the casing after centrifugal motion in the casing. Finally, the fallen leaves are collected and stored.

[0016] According to the above technical schemes, after the shredded leaves moves centrifugally in the casing, the mix of air and leaves enters into the collecting cartridge to form a cyclone flow, such that the leaves are held in the collecting cartridge by the centrifugal force. Air is discharged to the surrounding environment after passing through the filtering unit, while the shredded leaves are left in the collecting cartridge.

[0017] According to the above technical schemes, the cutter is driven by the motor to rotate. The secondary cutter is stationary. The cutter cooperates with the cutting arms of the secondary cutter to form a cutting area, such that the leaves that are absorbed in the air inlet duct and pass through the cutting area are shredded.

[0018] According to the above technical schemes, the mounting cartridge is integrated with the motor, the blades and the cutter arranged on the output shaft, such that a plurality of components are mounted in the casing at a time. The leaves collected by the blades are gathered in the mounting cartridge to move centrifugally so as to avoid falling on other components in the casing, and then are discharged out from the other sides of the mounting cartridge.

[0019] According to the above technical schemes, a plurality of the cutting arms are fixed between the annular plate and the locating ring of the secondary cutter, such that the cutting arms are stationary relative to the cutter. When the cutter cuts the leaves into pieces, the cutting arms cooperates with the cutter to improve the cutting efficiency and effect.

[0020] According to the above technical schemes, the locating ring is embedded in the mounting opening of the first cartridge and is fixed in the peripheral direction to avoid the secondary cutter from rotating relative the mounting cartridge. When the air inlet duct and the first cartridge are fixed via connectors, the secondary cutter is pressed against in the mounting opening by the air inlet duct, such that the secondary cutter is fixed without using other fixing means. Therefore, the structure is simplified since the number of components to assemble the blowing-suction machine is reduced.

[0021] According to the above technical schemes, when the first housing and the second housing are fitted to each other, the connecting posts arranged at the outer side of the second cartridge of the mounting cartridge can be respectively plugged in the first housing and the second housing, to fixedly mounting the mounting cartridge in the casing. Therefore, the mounting cartridge can be mounted without using additional fixing means, so as to optimize the mounting process. The mounting cartridge can be disassembled from the casing at one time without damaging the motor and the like.

[0022] According to the above technical schemes, the shredded leaves fall in the mounting cartridge, are forced to move centrifugally by the blades, and pass through the connecting duct. Some of the leaves enter into the collecting cartridge after passing through the collecting duct. Since the collecting cartridge is configured to be cylindrical, the fallen leaves possessing kinetic energy can move centrifugally in the collecting cartridge, such that the leaves can be held in the collecting cartridge. At the same time, air can be discharged out from the collecting cartridge through the filtering unit.

[0023] According to the above technical schemes, the air inlet duct of the filtering unit has an open end and a closed end. In addition, filtering holes are distributed over the sidewall of the air inlet duct. When air carrying the leaves flows into the collecting cartridge through the collecting duct, the leaves are retained in the collecting cartridge and move centrifugally since air passes through the filtering holes and prevents fallen leaves from entering into the collecting cartridge. On one hand, the locating duct to be located in the collecting cartridge is arranged at the rear end of the air inlet duct. After being plugged, the locating duct is fixed by the air outlet screen. The air outlet screen is arranged to have air outlet holes. Some of the fallen leaves passing through the filtering holes can be retained by the air outlet screen, thereby performing secondary filtering. On the other hand, the collecting cartridge and the air inlet duct are configured to be cylindrical, such that air coming in through the collecting duct can surround the outer side of the air inlet duct to form a cyclone flow, ensuring that fallen leaves can move centrifugally in the collecting cartridge and reducing the amount of leaves coming in the air inlet duct.

[0024] According to the above technical schemes, the locating duct is mounted via the annular groove arranged at the rear end of the collecting cartridge. The locating duct is further located in the collecting cartridge via the air outlet screen. When the locating duct is removed, only air outlet screen needs to be open such that the locating duct can be conveniently removed from the collecting cartridge.

[0025] In summary, the beneficial effects of the present invention are as follows. The cutter cooperates with the secondary cutter such that fallen leaves and rigid trashes can be effectively shredded by the blowing-suction machine. Further, fallen leaves can be effectively separated from air via the collecting cartridge and the filtering unit, such that the amount of the collected leaves is effectively increased.
