Each year the Pro Tool Innovation Awards are judged by a panel of industry professionals who handle and use hundreds of new tools each year. Manufacturers are invited to the Pro Tool Innovation Awards by the beginning of Q2, allowing plenty of time to enter their products and have them judged in time for the holiday buying season, and important trade shows, such as World of Concrete.
This year the DustBull won in the Concrete/Masonry Category for Dust Collection Shrouds!
This is what Dustless Technolognies had to say about their product:
"The DustBull is designed to capture harmful silica dust without using water. It captures dust at the point-of-origin, eliminating the messy and dangerous airborne dust created when cutting concrete and stone.
This shroud has been third-party tested and verified to comply with OSHA’s Silica Rule and will keep the jobsite safe, clean, and regulation-compliant when used with a vacuum with sufficient air-flow and filtration."
This is what Pro Tool had to say about the DustBull:
"It’s all about OSHA when it comes to dust collection and the DustBull from Dustless gives you a way to start collecting when you have dry cutting to do with your power cutter. In addition to collecting more than 90% of the dust you create, it doesn’t affect your cutting depth so you can still get the job done right the first time."
Check it out in action!
To be OSHA silica compliant, the DustBull needs to be used with a vacuum system that has 260+CFM. To achieve this with what we currently offer, you need to hook up 2 vacuums using a Y connector and hose. If you only use 1 vacuum, the DustBull does collect 75-80% of the dust depending on how you cut and what surface you cut on. I do have to add, please don't think you can use a regular shop vac. It will get clogged before you know it!
We are really excited about this new product & it's "relatives", the DustBuddie for cutting on flat surfaces & the DustBuddie XP for grinding.
