E-Z Drill launches hand drill dust collection cartPublished 2/3 at 13:37
At the recent World of Concrete show the US concrete dowel drill manufacturer, E-Z Drill launched a dust collection cart for use with handheld drills.
The dust collection cart gives contractors who use handheld drills an effective way to meet OSHA dust requirements. Operators also benefit from enhanced ease of use when moving the drill and can simply set the drill on the cart and go.
The dust cart collection system weighs 97kg and uses the same air compressor as the drill, requiring just 1.1m3/min for operation. It collects dust directly from the drilled holes and stores it in a collector.
E-Z Drill designed the cart with 6m of 50mm dust collection hose and a shroud that goes around the bit to ensure the dust is collected at the point of drilling, maximizing the amount of dust the system captures and reducing operator exposure. It also enhances overall site safety by preventing respirator issues. The cart features two 600mm filters to trap dust particles.
