Safe way to vacuum drywall dust



SAVE THAT VAC

One of the hardest things on a shop vac is drywall dust. It is so fine that it gets through the regular filter and destroys bearings/bushings and ruins the motor. Just the other day, a friend commented that he had to get a longer hose as his vac was blowing out a lot of drywall dust because the filter was slipping down!

High performance filters are available at most hardwares and box stores. They resemble the paperbag filters in carpet vacuums and catch the drywall dust so that the bag can just be thrown away when done. The bag is U-shaped to install in the shop vac and have clearance around the regular cartridge filter. The inlet has a rubber seal that pushes around the inlet on the inside of the tank. Just run the vac normally but spare it and your lungs!!!

Kobalt 10 saw blows dust everywhere ,even with a 2 shop vac connected to the dust chute .


It is possible that the dust chute on the Kobalt saw is plugged, not allowing the vacuum to pick up the dust. Run a rod through the dust tube and see if that clears it.

The hole behind the saw blade can become blocked solid with sawdust ( especially if the timber is green or wet). clean out the vacuum hose back to the collector.

Can I use shop-vac without bag 5gal5.5 hp


If you are using it for wet pick up, you would not use the bag. If you are using it for dry pick up, I would recommend using the bag to keep dust from going thru the vacuum and back into the area you are trying to vacuum.

When dry vacuuming, my shop vac is shooting dust out the back. What do I need to do?


Sounds like you need to re-install the air filter so there is a tight seal between it and the vacuum. You may have removed it to do the wet vacuuming and then did not re-install it properly to do the dry vacuuming.

Dust blowing right back into the air


You need to check the filter and make sure it's on all the way. To do this take the top off the vac, make sure the filter is all the way up and in place. There should be a plastic nut to hold it in place. If you are using it for fine dust particles such as drywall dust, you need a special filter for small particles. The filter that comes with the vac just won't do it!

Dirt smell


If this thing has a fast-spinning belt in the "head" of the unit, you are smelling the dust that is being collected in the back of the little drive "chamber" and is being heated up by the motor and the friction of the belt. This is a pretty common thing on vacuum cleaners designed like the Oreck. If it is huge bunnies of dust, well then that means there is a leak somewhere...

You will have to clean the filter and clean the main motor.  I had this issue on mine and the main motor was so full of dust bunnies, that it stopped it from creating a vacuum.
