Makita, the worldwide power tool manufacturer, has released two new dust extraction products for concrete contractors.

The Grinder Dust Shroud and Dustless Hammer Attachment are engineered for cleaner, more efficient concrete surfacing and drilling, the company says.

“Contractors are demanding more dust extraction solutions to reduce the amount of concrete dust created during tool usage,” said product manager Adam Livingston.

Makita plans to launch several more dust extraction products in the near future, Livingston said.

Dustless Hammer Attachment

The new dustless hammer attachment works with Makita SDS-PLUS corded and cordless rotary hammers. It features a 17” hose, telescoping spring-loaded barrel, depth stop, bit size adjustment knobs and a built-in ruler.

Makita says the attachment provides better suction and more efficient dust extraction when used with most jobsite vacuums. Because it has no vacuum motor or components, the attachment is lighter and more compact than built-in systems, Makita reports.

New Grinder Dust Shroud

The grinder dust shroud is designed to fit Makita 4-1/2” – 5” grinders. It features a spring-loaded suspension system that keeps the shroud flush to the surface during movement and compensates for blade wear.

Designed for concrete finishing, concrete material removal and paint or surface coating removal, the shroud has a removable edge piece for surface work flush to edges and soft brushes that help contain the dust and allow for smooth movement over the work surface.

The outside diameter of the extraction port will work with most standard vacuum hose systems.
