Bosch GAS20-17A 17-Gallon 300-CFM HEPA Dust Extractor Table 1 Compliant

Table 1 Compliance

The New Bosch 300-CFM Dust Extractor was designed for high-performance dust extraction in heavy-duty concrete construction applications such as concrete cutting and surface grinding.  In our case, we put this dust extractor to the test while grinding away epoxy from a garage floor and prepping for new epoxy.  The Bosch dust extractor has a 17.5-amp motor with a 20-amp plug to deliver 300 CFM.  This dust extractor is specifically designed to help users move toward compliance with the OSHA Silica Table 1 dust compliance regulation.

Like other Bosch vacuums that are slightly smaller, the GAS20-17AH has an automatic on-board filter-cleaning system activates every 15 seconds to help maintain maximum suction power.  If you decide that is not needed, one can turn the vacuum on without the AFC activated.  Bosch has a label on the unit of HEPA Ready, but it comes with an included HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of particles at 0.3 microns and larger. Also included are five three-layer heavy-duty filter bags that help to protect the filter and provides the optimal containment of dry dust.  Cleanup with the bags is much more simple and clean!

While this was designed for dry concrete grinding and cutting, the new Bosch Dust Extractor is also wet operation capable, with a water-level sensor and drain hose.

The extractor features a wheeled metal frame with a dumping mechanism, metal casters, and a height-adjustable push handle. This unit includes a 16 Ft. 35mm anti-static hose and 27 Ft. power cord with standard 20 Amp plug. When used with the optional Y-Connect (sold separately), the dust extractor can be hooked up to two tools (such as small angle grinders when used in grinding or cutting concrete).
