Bought this tool to clean old mortar off a wood subfloor after the old tile was torn out. This helped virtually eliminate the dust. just hooked it up to my shop vac. I've attached a pic that shows the first area I did and you can see it took the wood back to natural.

Looks well made
I got this on the off chance it might fit my non Makita angle grinder but unfortunately it doesn't. The dust shroud however appears very well made and easy to install.
The top that mounts to your grinder has springs and floats which allows you to push the blade down to accommodate different blade thicknesses.
It's hard to tell from the photo listed but a portion of the dust collector comes off to allow you to grind close to edges. It simply slides on and off without tools.
Great product by Makita. Plastic is heavy duty and holds...
Great product by Makita. Plastic is heavy duty and holds up to use. The shroud bolts on easily to my Makita (9556PB/9557PB/9558PB). The removable lip is easy to take off when grinding edges and corners. Only thing I would do differently next time I grind with this shroud is ensure the shop vac I am using has the volume and HP to keep up. I used a 4 gal. 5hp Ridgid and although it had sufficient power, the dust bag filled up every 10-15 minutes from grinding paint off concrete.

Makita 5 in. Dust Shroud
A highly effective dust collection and dust reduction device. I am thoroughly pleased with this purchase. I purchased dust shrouds for both my 4 1/2" and 7" grinders. A must have to control dust when grinding concrete surfaces.

Had to return
It fits great, but I had to return it. The diamond cups made by Makita work great for this, but Makita does not make a diamond cup labeled for stone. The stone cups I bought are taller than this dust extractor.
