Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Makita 192972-4 Dust Collecting Cutting Guard with Shoe

Concrete cutting is easy. Concrete cutting with a tool that is lightweight and compact is tougher. Concrete cutting with such a tool and adequate dust collection to avoid nasty environmental rules fines – well, that’s another story altogether. Makita worked on that this week when it released two new dust extraction solutions for concrete and masonry contractors. The new Dust Collecting Cutting Guard with Shoe (model 192972-4) works with Makita’s 4-1/2″ and 5-inch Grinders. The Cutting Guard is ideal for a host of concrete and masonry applications, including cutting tile, concrete cutting, and brick – as well as specialized uses like tuck pointing and cutting expansion joints. The new Cutting Guard is made to be used alongside Makita’s (or other manufacturers’) vacuum systems and really provides significant dust extraction on the jobsite. Particularly in light of new Lead Safe rules, this is becoming more and more of an issue with older commercial buildings as well as residential homes.

It’s also a lot healthier for the commercial contractor and professional using the tools.

Makita 192972-4 Dust Collecting Cutting Guard

Makita had already released new dust collection accessories for their rotary hammers and commercial grinders, but the Makita 192972-4 Cutting Guard with Shoe (and it’s related model without the shoe) are the latest of Makita’s dust collection products.

The new 4-1/2″ – 5″ Dust Collecting Cutting Guard with Shoe is made out of steel and has an easy tool-less depth adjustment for setting the depth of cut when doing tuckpointing or simply cutting through tile or concrete. A large shoe is provided to deliver a level of stability that isn’t as easy with shoe-less shrouds or cutting guards. The 192972-4 Guard also includes a hose adapter that will fit most of the commercial vacuum hoses and systems on the market.
