Although the Hammervac Universal Dust Extractor is part of Milwaukee’s M12 line of tools, the company says it’s designed to fit most major brands of SDS-plus rotary hammers and AC/DC hammer drills. To achieve compatibility, it comes with three sizes of side-handle collars. Its replaceable filter is HEPA-certified and will remove 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3 micron. The tool has a three-position switch (on, off, and auto-on, which turns it on and off with the drill) and costs $200.
