Attached to a HEPA-filtered dry vacuum cleaner, the ESS Enviroboot™
EB-1 dust-suppression accessory for electric jackhammers creates
a vacuum chamber around a jackhammer's chisel, significantly
drawing away and reducing harmful respirable dust and other
airborne contaminants released during the jackhammering operation.
An Enviroboot accessory properly connected to a HEPA-filtered
vacuum unit of sufficient capacity will reduce airborne particulate matter to an even greater extent, allowing contractors to meet the standard for permissible exposure set by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Turn on the dry vacuum cleaner prior to turning on the jackhammer.
Note: When jackhammering, users should wear the following safety equipment: Breathing apparatus (meeting n95 standard); safety glasses; ear protection; safety shoes; and work gloves.

Accepting Major Credit Cards
1. Disconnect the jackhammer from the electrical source.
2. Lay the jackhammer down and prop the chisel end up.
3 Pull the widest end of the Enviroboot accessory over the chisel until it seats properly with the jackhammer.
4. Position the accessories smaller opening to the side.
5. Tighten the 6-inch top hose clamp, adjusting the screw to a snug fit, but do not overly tighten, as this will distort the accessory, possibly damaging it and making operation less effective.
