Dust Shroud is engineered for improved dust containment while operating Makita 4-1/2" and 5" (4-1/2" Dust Shroud) or Makita 7" and 9" grinders (7" Dust Shroud). A key point of difference from competitor shrouds is the 3-spring suspension system that keeps the shroud flush with the surface during movement and compensates for cup-wheel wear. The soft brushes are engineered to prevent dust from escaping, and help move the tool more easily over the surface. An added convenience feature is the removable edge piece, which allows for surface work flush to other objects.
The guard has a direct-connection dust port (outer diameter: 1-7/16") for use with most commercial vacuum hoses. The 7" Dust Shroud is ideal for concrete finishing and planing, paint or surface coating removal, blending concrete seams, and "rain outs" (removing "dead" concrete from surfaces after rain).
