Milwaukee® Tool has built upon its M12™ Universal HAMMERVAC™ Dust Extractor and M18™ Dedicated HAMMERVAC™ designs with an updated dust box. Both units utilize a replaceable HEPA filter for efficient debris filtration. An updated dust box will allow users to easily clean the filter with the press of a button, making these tools OSHA compliant solutions (see Table 1 Requirements* below).
Per HEPA standards, the certified HEPA filter removes 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3 µm. However, the M12 Universal HAMMERVAC and M18 Dedicated HAMMERVAC feature replaceable filters so users can replace the filter independently of the dust box to cost-effectively maintain suction efficiency. By pressing a button twice on the side of the unit this filter cleans itself every time users empty the dust box.
The M18 HAMMERVAC Dedicated Dust Extractor (2715-DE) features an inline dedicated design engineered to connect directly to and be power by the M18™ 1-1/8” SDS Plus Rotary Hammer (2715-22). This allows for a very compact HAMMERVAC and rotary hammer combination to fit in the most confined work spaces. For accurate hole depths, this product is built with an adjustable depth stop and ruler for easy and precise adjustments.
The cordless M12 HAMMERVAC Universal Dust Extractor has a universal handle system compatible with major brands of SDS Plus rotary hammers and AC/DC hammer drills, so users can drill safely into concrete and masonry without purchasing a new drill. In auto-on mode, the extractor turns itself on and off as users work for maximum productivity. Powered by an M12™ Compact REDLITHIUM™ Battery (sold separately), the HAMMERVAC provides filtration for up to 160 holes on a single charge. For even longer runtime, the M12 XC High-Capacity REDLITHIUM Battery (sold separately) can be used. It comes with three sizes of side handle collars that the user can adjust to fit the tool securely. The product includes a HEPA filter, nozzle, three side-handle clamping collar assemblies, and a carrying case.
* In order to be compliant with the new regulation* companies prove they are under the PEL by following Table 1 standards, demonstrating objective data, or conducting their own self-monitoring programs, as laid out by OSHA.
