Pellet Stove Vacuums: Keep the Fire in the Stove

When we introduced our first ash vacuum 30 years ago, we prioritized convenience, effectiveness, and safety. Today we are still producing the safest and most reliable fireplace and pellet stove vacuum on the market.  The Cougar, with its industry-leading 10-year limited warranty, is universally rated one of the best ash vacuums you can buy.

Today, wood burning fireplaces and stoves aren’t as common as they once were. Pellet and other high-efficiency stoves are taking the place of those less efficient sources of heat and ambiance.  These produce much finer ash than vintage fireplaces.  As a result, more people are turning to quality ash vacuums to clean this light, hard-to-collect ash. There are many cheap options on the market today. However, with potentially hot ash and unburned pellets, the safety of your home and your loved ones should be the top priority. read more

Dustless Tools Sells The Right Tools & Accessories to Eliminate Concrete Dust

Tools to managing concrete dustBeing a professional contractor in today’s industrial world is significantly different than what it used to be even just a few years ago.

New OSHA Rule for Containing Dangerous Silica Dust

Can a good Vacuum Save Your Life?

New OSHA Rule for Containing Dangerous Silica Dust

It starts with shortness of breath after exercising and a harsh, dry cough. As it progresses, you may have more trouble breathing and may even cough up blood. It can lead to congestive heart failure, giving your nails a bluish tint. In advanced stages, it shows itself as chest pain, hoarseness, and loss of appetite.

Silicosis is a serious respiratory disease and serious risk for many in the construction and industrial occupations. Sometimes referred to as Stone Mason’s Disease due to its prevalence for centuries among those who built the great cathedrals of Europe, silicosis is caused by prolonged exposure to silica dust, a common component in concrete, stone, ceramics, and other industrial materials. Silica is one of the most common minerals on earth and products containing it are the core of modern industry. read more

The inner filter CAN be washed with soap and water … please make certain it is completely dry before using. read more

DiscBuddie Customer Feedback

We just received this feedback from a customer who purchased a DiscBuddie dust shroud (part # D1000) for handheld tools. We thought we should share it. Looks like the DiscBuddie is making his work a lot easier.

This is a -WONDERFUL- piece of equipment.

I’m taking a barrier coat off of a 30ft sailboat in FL and, if it weren’t for this shroud, I would have to walk around and clean about a dozen boats at the end of each day. The shroud makes me happy, the yard happy, and all the other boat owners! I’ve only used it for a few hours so far, but the dust collection is superb and makes the job a lot cleaner/easier. Thanks. I told the yard to buy 5 of them and rent them out, don’t know if they’ll follow through or not 🙂 read more

Avoid the Hefty EPA Fines by Using Compliant Products & Procedures

Become EPA certified today!

By using compliant products and procedures, you can reduce your chance of being tacked with a fine from the EPA.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (EPA RRP) has been in full-force, by penalizing contractors that are not using the proper products and processes required for renovation work. With millions of homes across the country aging, renovation contractors are called on to do projects that require work with lead paint. As a section of the rule states, if a contractor works on any home built pre-1978, you must be trained, certified, and using lead-safe work practices. The fines for not complying with the guidelines can be as high as $37,500 per incident, per day. With this rule in place, many contractors have already contacted the leader in dust control solutions, Dustless Technologies, to get their hands on the full line of certified HEPA vacuums, tools and accessories to help them comply with the regulations when doing renovation, repair and painting. read more

Dustless Technologies – Hot Topic for the 2012 National Hardware Show

New products spark excitement at the National Hardware Show

The running of the 67th National Hardware Show was a big event for over 2,000 exhibitors from across the world. Dustless Technologies, located in the South Hall, was very ecstatic about the interest in their brand new dust collection products.  With cutting-edge innovation always in mind, Dustless Technologies has developed some unique items for contractors, all proudly Made in the USA. These three items below were the hot topic at the annual National Hardware Show in Las Vegas,Nevada.

  1. SawBuddie 7 inch Dust ShroudSawBuddie: Most of the renovation contractors that came by the booth really got excited about the new SawBuddie. “Who doesn’t like having a cleaner working area?” said several current dealers. This unique product is the ONLY dust shroud available for reciprocating saws. A very quick and simple installation of the shroud allows for point-of-origin dust collection, capturing 99% of airborne dust. The product is also in compliance with the EPA RRP regulations when used with the Dustless Technologies HEPA Full Unit Certified Vacuum. The SawBuddie fits most reciprocating saws and has a line of sight gap within the bristles so you can always have an unobscured view for precise cutting. To see a demonstration of the product check out the video on the product page here.
  2. DustBubble 3 PackDustBubble™: The new DustBubble’s have been a hit with many different markets – from home improvement gurus to construction professionals, and everyone in between! The hardware attendee’s that stopped by really liked the fact that doing something as simple as drilling holes in a wall, can now be done dust-free with the DustBubble’s. The product allows for no more mess on the floor or airborne dust while drilling holes using a hand drill. The product is a transparent pouch that sticks to the wall and collects virtually all of the dust while drilling. Simply “stick it, drill it, toss it!” Now offering bright, space-saving countertop packaging displays for retail locations. For more information on the DustBubbles click here.
  3. BobCat Ash SeparatorBobCat™: The hardware show brought forward some exciting products that are for home and hearth use. The new patent pending BobCat Ash Separator was on everyone’s “to-see” list. This product is a totally new concept in ash removal due to its ability to remove both cold and warm ash from fireplaces or wood stoves. There is no product on the market like it that can handle “warm” ash. The product is a safe, neat, and easy way to clean ash using a household vacuum or shop style vacuum. You can get as much power as you need, all based on the power of the vacuum you attach to the BobCat. The unique design of the product allows you to clean the filter without opening the canister, simply by lifting, and releasing, the spring-loaded handle. UPDATE: The BobCat has been discontinued and replaced by the Cougar Ash Vacuum. It provides the same great features with the vacuum included.

Dustless Technologies was excited to hear all the positive feedback from display and demonstration at the trade show. All of our products are proudly made in the USA. All the products highlighted are available, and ready to ship.
