Dust danger safety drive

Published:  15 August, 2007

Speedy Hire has launched a new product to tackle the problem of dust inhalation for users of cut-off saws as part of its ongoing commitment to improving health and safety.

Working with product designers and manufacturers, Speedy Hire has developed the Dust Buster, a portable device which builds upon previous methods of water suppression to provide a practical solution to work-related dust. It is the first product of its kind to enable operators of cut-off saws and other cutting equipment to control dust as they work without restricting their location or relying on a constant water supply.

The product's development is part of Speedy Hire's Safety from the Ground Up campaign and marks a significant step forward for the company's latest initiative to tackle the wide-spread problem of dust inhalation. Speedy"s current 'Letís clear the air on dust controlí health and safety drive aims to reduce the number of operatives that contract respiratory diseases by highlighting the causes of dust and the range of preventative measures now available.

The Dust Buster offers workers a range of new benefits including:

  • A 105 litre tank capacity meaning one fill will last up to a full working day.
  • A 35m hose allowing the user to reach up to a 70m working radius of the tank.
  • The ability to supply water suppression to several cut-off saws at once.
  • A built-in engine enabling it to be used anywhere.
  • A secure, lockable compartment where users can store equipment when not in use.
