Milwaukee Tool announced the SDS Plus Dust Trap Drilling Shroud. This OSHA compliant product doesn’t require a vacuum. Ideal for overhead drilling applications, and with a universal fit to work with all SDS Plus rotary hammers, the Dust Trap is also OSHA Table 1** compliant when used in conjunction with a proper dust extractor.
The Dust Trap is built with a clear sleeve that provides visibility when lining up the hole and during the drilling application. Once attached to the front of the rotary hammer, it keeps dust contained throughout the duration of the drilling process. Afterwards the sleeve can be emptied, and the entire unit easily collapses and locks for storage. The compact, collapsible design is ideal for hard-to-reach places, providing superior productivity to the user.
The universal fit of the Dust Trap allows it to work with all SDS Plus rotary hammer brands and styles and all SDS Plus drill bits up to 8” in length, including stop bits and other anchor installation tools.
