Saw Muzzle for worm-drive saws (Skil, Makita, Milwaukee, DeWalt)
The Saw Muzzle is designed to work with the industrial grade worm drive
circular saws to collect point of origin dust created from cutting concrete,
fiberglass or any other materials that create toxic dusts. The Saw Muzzle
will also fit some of the left hand bladed side drive saws. Use the Saw
Muzzle Cross Reference to order the correct Saw Muzzle for your saw.
How the Dust Muzzle works
The Saw Muzzle is made from fiberglass filled ABS plastic. It is durable and abrasion resistant. The Saw Muzzle uses the centrifugal forces generated by the saw blade to direct the dust into the intake port of the Saw Muzzle. When the Saw Muzzle is connected to an industrial grade 2hp vacuum system, it can remove up to 99% of the dusts created at the point of origin.
The Saw Muzzle is excellent for cutting cinder block, brick, stone and
composite materials. When fitted with a tuck-pointing blade, it can be used for removing rotten concrete from brick grout joints. When used with a 1/4" or a 3/8" crack chasing blade, it is excellent for crack chasing on parking structures or other flat surfaces. When used with a saw blade, it is excellent for cutting fiberglass and concrete.
The Saw Muzzle also works well with the Blade Roller to make a stable
rolling platform for cutting and crack chasing.
OSHA 2017 Silica Dust Requirements specify a HEPA vacuum with 220 CFM for diamond blades 7" in diameter.
To be compliant the contractor will a need vacuum with the following specs.
