Dustless concrete cutting can be achieved when cutting faux grout lines that are commonly seen in decorative floors, either because they were specified or as an afterthought. In some cases the operator makes a “kiss cut” of less than ¼” depth and in other cases a slightly deeper cut is made and the groove is re-grouted.
In either case, a dustless, die-straight ¼” wide faux grout line can be made using a combination of three of our products: The Saw Muzzle, the Skateplate and our .250” wide faux grout line blade.
The Saw Muzzle is the Dust Collector used for dustless concrete cutting with Skil Saws. It will fit any Skil™, Bosch™, Makita™, Milwaukee™ or DeWalt™ left bladed saw. These are generally the low rpm saws referred to as worm drive or hypoid saws. Please specify the type of saw being used when ordering.
The optimum blade for cutting faux grout lines is the 7” x .250” tuck pointing blade. We have these manufactured with the diamond knockout so they fit the worm drive saws. They are typically set to cut 3/16 to ¼” deep. When used with an industrial grade vacuum and the Saw Muzzle, dustless concrete cutting can be achieved up to the 99% level.
For continuous production work when doing dustless concrete cutting, this same system is also available with our Standup Rolling Cart. This is a stand up rolling cart and it replaces the Skateplate and allows the worker to get off his knees. It is more expensive but it is a substantially more solid rolling cart that triggers the saw from the handle.
All Dust Collection Products dust collectors will work efficiently with an industrial vacuum (Nacecare 570 vacuum) that has at least 90” of static lift, 100 CFM of airflow and replaceable filter bags.
