The Dust Muzzle Leatherneck comes in one size that fits all 7"-8" right angle grinders. A special molded ring in the collar of the Leatherneck will clip into the safety groove that is standard on all right angle grinders. This will prevent the Leatherneck from migrating down the bearing housing of the grinder.
A spring steel ring lines the inside skirt of the Leatherneck skirt to provide abrasion resistance when cutting abrasive materials.
An outer plastic ring is also provided. This ring will protect the baseboard when working close to the walls and it can be rotated to various positions to assure complete suction on irregular surfaces.
The Leatherneck is designed to take a standard 1½” vacuum hose with no end fitting.
- Fits virtually all 7"-8" electric right angle grinders with round bearing housings.
- Excellent for diamond cup wheels, Zec™ wheels and thin backup pads
- Works well with sanding discs and soft pad sanders
- Up to 95% efficient when used with a 2hp industrial vacuum system
How the Dust Muzzle Leatherneck Works
The Dust Muzzle Leatherneck uses a flexible cover attached to a steel ring and a plastic skirt to provide the most vertical movement of any grinder shroud on the market. The skirt of the Leatherneck is designed to be flexed so the operator can work close to the wall. The spring steel ring inside the skirt of the Leatherneck provides the memory that returns the Leatherneck to its original shape.
The Leatherneck was designed with generous tolerances both inside the skirt and in the exhaust port so the operator will be able to pick up large debris such as wood chips, thin set and mortar and large chunks of paints and epoxies.
The Leatherneck is specially designed for the operator who will be using a wide variety of wheels on his grinder. Because of it’s vertical flexibility, it can accommodate the thinnest backup plates such as the Flatback sanding system or the deepest wheels like the 24 segment diamond cup wheels we sell for removing concrete.
