Help remodelers comply with new EPA lead hazards ruling.
Contractors and remodelers who are facing the EPA's new Final Ruling on lead, remodeling, repair and painting can be aided in becoming compliant when using Kett Tool's KSV-432 vacuum saw with a HEPA filtered shop vacuum. The ruling requires that contractors, remodelers, painters, plumbers and other tradesmen be EPA-certified and follow detailed work and safety practices to prevent lead contamination and poisoning.
The KSV-432, when used in conjunction with a HEPA filtered shop vacuum, works to contain hazardous dust, a key element in the new EPA ruling. Kett's vac saw's cast aluminum head easily attaches to most standard shop vacuums using HEPA filters, which can remove up to 99.97 percent of lead particles, some as small as .03 microns. The unique vacuum head captures dust at the cutting zone and moves easily along the cut line. The KSV-432 is ideal for cutting drywall, plywood and plastic panels, fiberglass and C.R. mild steel up to 16 gauge.
The EPA Final Ruling is based on a federal agency study to determine what home remodeling, repair and renovation activities create hazardous lead dust, which is especially harmful to children. The new ruling applies to all paid renovators who work on homes and childcare facilities built prior to 1978. Fines as high as $37,500 per day can apply if EPA rules are not followed.
Kett's KSV-432 makes plunge cuts into the middle of the material to make accurate cutouts for windows, plumbing and ductwork. It is powered by a 5.0 amp, variable speed, 2500 RPM motor and uses replaceable tool steel saw blades. Click here to see KSV-432 Vac Saw in action.
