Vacuums for use on asbestos must be a certified H Class Vacuum and must be used in conjunction with certified H Class Vacuum Bags. Once a vacuum has been used on asbestos, it should not be used on anything else, and because of the dangerous nature of asbestos dust, we recommend having your vacuum professionally decontaminated after each job.
No, the 125mm Angle Grinder Shrouds are only compatible on 115mm (4") and 125mm (5") Angle Grinders. However we do also have a larger model which is compatible with 180mm (8") to 230mm (9") Angle Grinders
For best performance, we recommend that the MAXVAC Dustblockers are used positioned on the floor as dust naturally falls so this gives the maximum possible chance for the dust to be filtered before reaching a surface. However, the DB500 and DB900 models can also be wall mounted if necessarry.
