The Milwaukee 8-Gallon Dust Extractor is designed to provide users with an OSHA-compliant solution for regulation of respirable crystalline silica dust (29 CFR 1926.1153).
The dust-extractor’s automatic filter cleaning mechanism helps maintain consistent airflow (148 cfm) and suction (92 inches of water) in tough, dust-producing applications, says Milwaukee. A two-step filtration system includes a 99.97-percent efficient HEPA filter as the final step. An onboard tool-activated plug allows users to start and stop the vacuum with a power tool. Adapters included are compatible with all Milwaukee dust-extraction accessories, including those for surface grinding, cutting, chiseling, and drilling (special drill bits that facilitate dust removal are available). The extractor works at 69 dB(A) and has a suction-control dial to adjust performance.
