Makita, a manufacturer of technologically advanced power tools that are more compact with less weight yet deliver industrial strength power and results, has released two new dust extraction solutions for concrete contractors. The Grinder Dust Shroud and Dustless Hammer Attachment is engineered for cleaner, more efficient concrete surfacing and drilling. Makita’s new dust extraction accessories include a Dustless Hammer Attachment and Grinder Shroud. The new dustless hammer attachment works with Makita SDS-PLUS corded and cordless rotary hammers. It features a 17-inch hose, telescoping spring-loaded barrel, depth stop, bit size adjustment knobs and a built-in ruler. Use of this attachment with most jobsite vacuums results in better suction and more efficient dust extraction. Because there is no vacuum motor or components attached to the tool, the Makita solution is more compact and has less weight than built-on systems. Lastly, most built-on systems have only a half-gallon capacity, increasing downtime from the frequent disposal of the collect material. The new grinder dust shroud, meanwhile, is designed to fit Makita 4-1/2-inch to 5-inch grinders. It features a spring-loaded suspension system that keeps the shroud flush to the surface during movement and compensates for blade wear. The shroud has a removable edge piece for surface work flush to edges or other objects. For more information, call 800-4-MAKITA (800-462-5482) or visitmakitatools.com.
