Cordless, low vibration and dust free: Safe drilling from DeWalt

Health and Safety is paramount in the workplace and with the added emphasis on dust control, DEWALT has designed a low vibration cordless drilling system with integrated dust extraction to combat this. The DC234KL 36v rotary hammer can now produce low vibration and dust free drilling in conjunction with the new D25302DH integrated dust extraction adaptor.

Long term exposure to certain dusts (especially in silica aggregates) can cause silicosis or asthma. These risks can now be seriously reduced by using the DEWALT system. The D25302DH has an independent motor and draws its power from the 36v battery in the drill. Having an independent motor ensures that full suction power is obtained and that there is no reduction in drilling performance. It works with a sprung loaded extendable nose-piece attached to the handle and a hose that is attached to the nose piece from the dust collector. This means that the extraction works directly on the work piece and all dust is cleared immediately. The vacuum starts as soon as the trigger is pressed and remains on for several seconds after the trigger is released to ensure all hoses are clear after drilling. The dust collector has a HEPA filter, is bagless and is easily emptied simply by removing the cartridge and emptying the contents into a bin.

The DC234KL itself has very low vibration figures. The internal gearbox has its own unique suspended gear case that helps reduce vibration to only 8m/sē (EN60745). It is supplied with 2 x 36v Lithium-Ion batteries and a charger allowing maximum run-time and power. To further enhance the confidence DEWALT have in this new technology these Lithium-Ion batteries now come with a 2 year warranty.
