Milwaukee® Introduces Second Generation M12™ HAMMERVAC™ Universal Dust Extractor

Milwaukee Tool continues to drive improved safety and productivity on the jobsites with the second generation of the M12 HAMMERVAC Universal Dust Extractor. Compatible with any brand of SDS Plus Rotary Hammers, the redesigned M12TM HAMMERVAC Universal Dust Extractor is OSHA® Table 1 compliant,* features a new AUTOPULSE filter cleaning system, and is the only dust-extraction solution with an integrated method that allows it to be emptied without any exposure to the user.

The AUTOPULSE Filter Cleaning System is an automatic, self-cleaning filter mechanism designed to offer better performance and suction. It does this by consistently knocking out dust during operation to ensure the dust is loosened in the dust box and easier to empty. Once the visible dust box is full, users can easily suction out

the dust with a vacuum, mitigating the risk of that dust becoming airborne.
To achieve universal compatibility, the new M12TM HAMMERVAC comes equipped with one handle that fits all SDS Plus rotary hammers, both AC and DC, and the capacity to drill holes up to 8” deep and 1-1/4” in diameter. For ease of use, the HAMMERVAC features an adjustable depth gauge for easy and precise depth adjustments, an automatic activation switch to conserve battery when drilling, and small and large nozzles for use with any diameter bit.

Per HEPA standards, the certified HEPA filter will remove 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3 μm. The M12 HAMMERVAC will continue to feature a replaceable filter so that the user can replace the filter independently of the dust box to cost-effectively maintain suction efficiency. The M12 HAMMERVAC Universal Dust Extractor joins the M12 Cordless System, the largest sub-compact system on the market, focused on delivering industry-leading durability and power in the tightest spaces. Currently the M12 System is made up of more than 100 solutions.

* In order to be compliant with the OSHA® regulation 29 CFR 1926.1153 on respirable silica dust companies must prove they are under the PEL by following Table 1 standards, demonstrating objective data, or conducting their own self-monitoring programs, as laid out by OSHA.
