Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used with a cup shaped wheel?

Will this shroud accommodate a cup-shaped surface grinding wheel as well as a flat cut-off wheel?
Asked by: JBN
The Dust Buddie is designed to work only with a cup-shaped grinding wheel. The same company makes a Cut Buddie that works only with a flat cutting wheel.

What is the zip tie for?

Asked by: WRM
The instructions say that the zip tie is for holding the vacuum hose next to the power cord, so they don't tangle. A zip tie doesn't work very well, so I used a foam-covered wire twisty that I bought at a hardware store to keep the hose and cord together. The twisty can be used over and over.

5 in. Dust Buddie Dust Shroud for Hand Grinders is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dust Buddie did a surprisingly good job of collecting dust from my Makita side wheel grinder ... The Dust Buddie did a surprisingly good job of collecting dust from my Makita side wheel grinder when used as a rotary saw with a 4.25" blade to cut hard sandstone. The installed dust cover did not cause any vibration of the cutting wheel However, I had to change the position of the worm gear adjustment on the hose clamp that came with the Dust Buddie. In the supplied position of the clamp, the dust cover was at an awkward tighten. I had to change the position of the clamp adjustment to match the photo shown on the website. The adjustment spacers were useful for centering the blade between the two sides of the cover. It can be difficult to predict where the saw will cut, because you cannot see the exposed blade; this required a guide bar to keep the blade on the intended path.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised. Excellent product. Used with turbo diamond cup wheel on angle grinder to remove black mastic from 300 sq ft of concrete slab floor. Reduced dust at least 95%+. Had tried small area prior to purchase using a respirator but dust cloud so immense after a few minutes that I could not see to continue. With dust shroud in place respirator was not necessary. Dust shroud was easy to attach to grinder and still in great shape for next job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for tile demo This is a must have for tile demo. Bought this to assist with removing thin set from 1000ft condo retile job with furniture present. I also rented big thin set buffer type grinder which turned out to be very dusty and ineffective (waste of money). I ended up removing all thin set with 7' grinder/diamond cup wheel with very little dust and effort. You will need to clean shop vac often, however end results will be worth it. Tile guy thought it was one of the smoothest floors he had laid tile on. I thought the price was a little steep for the plastic quality however it ended up being pretty durable and worth its wait in gold in keeping the dust to a bare minimum. Removable edge guard was effective up against walls/drywall. Highly recommend.

My only concern is the long term durability of the shroud. The plastic seems a bit brittle however it held up for my first project which was about 4 hours worth of hand grinding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I had a concrete bathroom floor to slope for a standard drain and shower drain and was concerned about the amount of dust it would create. Decided to buy this product along with a heavy shop vac and fine particle filter. I still wore a respirator and would recommend anyone grinding concrete do the same. With this unit I was able to catch 98% of the dust that was generated. I would also recommend checking your shop vac and filter often if you are doing a large job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. I am satisfied with the product. I have been using it on a concrete stairwell, done in the fifties, that had form seems showing and in some areas a rough surface. Using a double row, five segment, diamond embedded cup it has worked containing the dust. If you allow the contact brushes to lift however you will get some grinding dust kicked out. As long as the surface is in contact with the concrete it will capture the discharge. Some will escape when using with the edge attachment removed, but not too bad. Biggest slow down is the filter on my shop vac needing to be cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Concrete Dust Having ground concrete before with other brand shrounds, I was shocked at how well dustless technology's dust shroud works. The company's claim that that it capture 99% of dust seems a bit understated to me. In addition, the shroud is not rubber, so it does not "suck down" on flat concrete surfaces like other brands. This makes it easer to move across the surface, avoiding gouging. At the same time, the brushes at the bottome of the shroud keep concrete particles from escaping.
