Dedicated to developing productivity-focused, dust collection solutions for compliance with the OSHA regulation on respirable crystalline silica dust, Milwaukee introduced the SDS Plus DUST TRAP™ Drilling Shroud.

“As employers continue to equip themselves with the accessories needed to be compliant, it can be difficult to quickly and efficiently ensure full compliance amid the high costs of many solutions and the limited availability of cordless options that offer a universal fit,” said Iris Horn, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.

The Milwaukee SDS Plus DUST TRAP Drilling Shroud is the answer to these frustrations. A cost-effective and completely universal accessory, the DUST TRAP offers an efficient and flexible way for users to adjust to the daily demands of the job site while remaining compliant.

 

SIMPLE, YET FUNCTIONAL DESIGN – HOW THE DUST TRAP WORKS

Once attached to the front of the rotary hammer, the spring-like function of the sleeve ensures that the dust remains contained throughout the duration of the job.

Afterward, 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. The accessory is also OSHA Table 1 compliant when used in conjunction with a proper dust extractor.
