DEWALT Dustless Solutions: Perform & Protect

DEWALT Dustless Solutions helps you stay in compliance with OSHA Table 1. This is achieved by protecting workers from respirable silica dust and other workplace hazards. The heart of silica dust protection for DeWalt is their dust extractor. Still, they have multiple compliant solutions for every task on today’s job sites.

DeWalt Dust Extractors Are Setting the Pace

The DeWalt DWV012 10-gallon HEPA Dust Extractor and DWV010 8-gallon HEPA Dust Extractor are the heart of DeWalt’s solution to complying with OSHA Table 1. The DWV012 has dual HEPA filters to protect you while one filter is automatically cleaned. This allows it to have a constant 155 CFM while the same system allows the DWV010 to operate at 150 CFM. The large wheels and casters give you the mobility needed to get into all areas of the job site. The patented Air Lock hose works with all DeWalt dustless tool attachments. Furthermore, it also gives you a secure connection point if moving the extractor using the hose.

Flexibility and Protection

Many business owners are concerned that new safety regulations will make their tools obsolete. DeWalt has taken extreme consideration into this issue and has designed attachments that will not require new tools to be purchased to complete a current task. It will also allow the user to be fully protected against the hazards of silica dust. Dust attachments range from the DWH050K Large Hammer Dust Extraction / Hole Cleaning Kit, the DWH053K Large Hammer Dust Extraction Chiseling Kit, and the smaller D25301D Dust Extractor Telescoping Attachment for SDS Plus Rotary Hammers. You will also be covered if you have invested in the DeWalt 20V Max* cordless tool platform. The DWH303DH receives a new self-cleaning HEPA filter to make your rotary hammer dust extraction attachment a fully contained Table 1 solution.

Drill Bits That Help Remove Silica Dust

If you have ever drilled into concrete, you are fully aware of the dust this task creates. The new DeWalt Hollow Shaft drill bits are designed to collect the silica dust at the source, the drill bit face, and channel it through the bit to the extractor. This advanced design allows the user to drill a fast, clean hole. The holes are often clean enough to forgo the cleaning steps when using a 2-part epoxy. When this time saving is added to the increased speed of drilling the hole, you can see savings using the DeWalt drilling system.

Surface Grinding and Tuckpointing

When working with concrete, the dustiest jobs are surface grinding and tuckpointing. These tasks expose the operator to massive amounts of silica dust. In this case, without the proper protection, could lead to numerous lung issues or death. DeWalt has included these tasks in its Perform and Protect lineup. The new surface grinders and tuckpoint grinders have integrated shrouds built to wrangle the dust. Moreover, the motors and gears are specially designed to last longer in this demanding setting. As with other tool segments, if you already own a grinder used for these tasks, keep it safe. DEWALT has developed new shrouds that will allow you to use your existing tools and remain protected. That’s why you should choose DEWALT Dustless Solutions to be your next workspace addition. So, shop now at
