DEWALT HEPA Filter Dust Extractor Vacuum

DEWALT HEPA Vacuum and Universal Connector System (DWV012)DEWALT HEPA Filter Dust Extractor Vacuum and Universal Connector System

Think about your worst case construction related dust.   Immediately drywall and concrete dust comes to mind.

My issue with these two types of dust is that anything short of a respirator doesn’t work and the dust get everywhere.  Now picture trying to do a retrofit or rehab in an occupied home or commercial building or worst … a hospital.  Oh yea and what about the EPA’s Renovations, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule – that’s a complete headache too.

Ok you get the picture!

The DWV012 Dust Extractor Vacuum was designed specifically to provide dust control solutions for drywall sanding and concrete grinding, cutting and drilling applications and to help prevent the risk of inhaling dust, and expensive dust clean ups.

What’s so Sexy About the DWV012?

The DWV012 is a tool activated vacuum and has continuous auto filter cleaning, which means that every 30 seconds one of the filters is back-flushed with air to remove dust to provide suction until the tank is full. The HEPA filters need to be replaced every 6 months under normal applications.DEWALT HEPA Filter Dust Extractor Vacuum and Universal Connector System

DWV012 Features:

  • Automatic Filter Clean pulses every 30 seconds for continuous operations without stopping to clean filter
  • Powerful 15-Amp motor delivers 140 CFM of airflow for maximum suction
  • Power Tool Actuation controls the On/Off operations of the vacuum with a power tool
  • Variable Suction controls vacuum’s power consumption and amount of suction
  • Telescoping handle for easy transport

Universal Connector:

Included with the vacuum is the DWV9000 universal connector which features nine individual adaptors that work with many of the grinding, drilling, chipping and demolition power tools currently on the market.

For grinding and hammer shrouds the universal connector has a positive lock and allows the hose to swivel.

    Indoor concrete sawing. That’s my dust related nightmare. I normally use the Hilti version but I’m glad to see other manufacturers see the need for portable dust extraction.
