Silica Dust Collection for the Hardscape Industry

As hardscape contractors, we began researching various options to comply with the new respirable silica law. Our enthusiasm quickly turned to frustration as we began testing various systems. The attachments in which we’d invested failed to capture a significant amount of dust. Pairing the attachments with an oversized dust collector didn’t resolve the inherent design flaws.

I Would Never Cut Without Dust Control Again

Since we started using the Dust Killer I definitely would never cut dry without dust control again. Its not fun to have to wear a respirator all day, but since we have the Dust Killer I don’t have to wear a respirator to cut.
