The expansion includes new dust extraction attachments and chisel boots for SDS Max hammers, as well as concrete cutting shrouds for grinders. These accessories will be supported by an 8-Gallon Dust Extractor that features an automatic filter cleaning mechanism.
The system features an automatic filter cleaning mechanism to allow for sustained airflow at 148 CFM in dust-producing applications. The Extractor’s dual filtration system (complete with HEPA filter) captures 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 microns. For SDS Max hammers, there is a new dust extraction attachment for drilling holes up to 2-3/4” in diameter and a chisel boot for chipping applications. Also available will be new cutting dust shrouds that work with the Extractor to maximize dust collection during concrete cutting with grinders.
These new accessories will join Milwaukee’s current lineup of HAMMERVAC dedicated and universal dust extractors. According to the new OSHA regulation, starting on Sept. 23, the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) to crystalline silica dust will be 50 µg/m3 over an 8-hour period. With this expansion to its Dust Extraction System, Milwaukee Tool’s full lineup of rotary hammers and grinders will be completely compliant.
