FITTING THE Surface D ust G uard TO A N A NGLE G RINDER
PLACE THE CORRECT INSERT OVER THE GRINDER BEARING HOUSING
The 7" Surface Dust Guards inserts are color coded to specific angle grinders:
Deep Blue - Makita, Yellow - DeWalt, Green - Hitachi, Red - Milwaukee, Black - Metabo. The Bosch angle grinders fit
neatly without using an insert. If a grinder bearing housing size falls within there insert sizes, it may be possible to smash or
grind the outside diameter and still maintain a tight mounting with three clamping screws.
Should the insert ends touch during this process, the insert can be removed and the end cut shorter with a saw blade
before continuing to clamp.
The 5" Corner Surface Dust Guard inserts are also color coded to specific angle grinders however,
sometimes a color will fit more than one brand. Deep Blue - Makita, Light Blue - Bosch, Yellow - DeWalt, Milwaukee,
Green - Hitachi, Black - Metabo and some Hitachi grinders. Trial will determine the best fit. These inserts will also enable
7" polishers to be fitted to the Surface Dust Guard with the exception of the Milwaukee polisher (does not have a bearing
housing). The Green Insert fits the Makita 9227C Polisher.
METABO SpringLever Angle Grinder (Models W8, 9, 11 & 14). The
When installing the 5" Surface Dust Guard onto a
spring-lever on the grinder must be removed from its pivot pin. Use the Black Insert
Collar with the Metabo grinders and proceed with the installation.
Plastic bearing housings – mainly 5” grinders
Some five inch grinders have plastic bearing housings with various sections cut out
to enable ratchet adjustment of the grinder guard. When fitting the guard
try to align the screws so that they do not clamp opposite a cutout section, instead clamp the screws opposite a full section
of the bearing housing to prevent the guard from being tilted by the screw when it is tightened.
Use the original nut that is provided
to hold a cut-off wheel for clam ping
the diam ond cup wheel.
On 5" grinders the inside flange nut
that is used under the wheel can
be use instead of the enclosed flat
washers before placing the
grinding wheel on the shaft.
* Norm ally only use the
spacers provided with your Surface
Dust Guard on the bare shaft or
for low profile cupwheels and
abrasive Type 27 grinding wheels
(like ZEC® Discs).
Available extension nut (#23283K).

FITTING THE Surface D ust G uard TO A N A NGLE G RINDER
F IT THE GUARD OVER THE PLASTIC INSERT COLLAR
Place the guard over the insert which should be a neat fit under most circumstances, otherwise the fit should be the best
possible. Position the guard so that the edging flats are where you would like them to be and the clamping screws are
accessible with a screwdriver. Tighten the screws with even pressure until the guard is fixed into position then tighten the
screws with firm pressure.
Spacers – Flat washers
Each surface dust guard kit comes with flat washers that fit onto the shaft (arbor) of the grinder. They are used under the
cup wheel to adjust the height of the cup wheel so that it does not touch the metal guard at its edging flat. Note: The
original inner blade clamp can also be used. The clearance between the grinding disc and the metal guard body edging
section once the grinding wheel nut has been tightened can be as low as 1/32". Remove the spacers until the smallest
clearance has been achieved.
* Important note for longer threaded shafts (arbors) - i.e. Metabo
Sometimes the nut will bind on the bottom of the shaft when the minimum clearance between the grinding wheel and the
metal guard body has been obtained so the nut may appear to be tight, but the grinding wheel will be loose or only lightly
clamped. If this occurs, remove the nut and wheel and add another spacer, then try again and test to make sure the
grinding wheel is solidly clamped.
Adjust the height of the diamond cup wheel with the
spacers (included with a Surface Dust Guard) or the inner
blade clamps (included with the angle grinder.)
Make sure there is a small gap (1/32") between the
underside of the grinding wheel and the steel body of the
Surface Dust Guard.

A DJUSTING THE SURFACE D UST G UARD SEAL
The strong airflow underneath the seal is what picks up dust on the floor as the Surface Dust Guard passes over, leaving the
floor clean. Be sure to leave a small gap between the seal and the floor.
Replace the main seal and adjust the seal height.
After fitting the grinding wheel turn the grinder over and fit the main seal leaving a small gap of approximately 1/32" to
1/16" between the seal and the floor. The grinding wheel should beheld flat on the floor while the rubber seal is wrapped
around the guard. This will prevent any friction when operating the grinder and will force the air under the seal where the
dust is generated resulting in better dust pick-up.
When to re-adjust the seal height The seal only needs to be adjusted under the following conditions:
1. When a new grinding wheel is fitted.
2. If the floor is soft and grinding too fast causes the guard to suck itself to the floor. If this occurs, increase the gap size.
3. On rough floors where dust is escaping from under the seal, the seal can be lowered until the floor is smooth again.
Replacing the seal. Seals usually last the life of approximately four grinding wheels. The rubber seal will
wear slightly as the grinding wheel is worn lower and it will also push up slightly on the hook and loop.
New seal are simply wrapped around the dust guard and a seal set includes the edging cover strip.
Adjust Rubber Seal Height on the Surface Dust Guard - Depends on Vacuum Suction
The seal height above the floor can be adjusted to compensate for a stronger or weaker vacuum
system. If a large, powerful vacuum is connected the seal can be raised to provide a larger gap
which will reduce the suck-down and sticking tendency and allow for faster grinding. If a small vacuum dust
collector is used, the seal can be lowered to provide a smaller gap between the seal and the floor to
increase the suction pressure within the guard.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Remedy
Dust guard is loose
Tighten the three screws that hold the dust guard onto the grinder.
Dust is escaping while edging
Is the vacuum dust collector operating correctly and turned on.
Check the filters of the vacuum dust collector and clean if necessary.
Rem ove the hose from the dust guard and check for good airflow or a blocked hose.
Longer vacuum hoses will reduce the power of the vacuum . If a longer hose is
required, upgrade to a 2" diam eter hose (see ICS Vacuum s - Accessories).
Use a 2 or 3-Motor Dust Collector.
Som etim es larger particles of sand will escape at the front of the guard, this is not
dust. Check the height of the seal and lower if necessary.
Check the condition of the seal and replace if there are tears other than where the
diam ond wheel protrudes.
If the bottom edge of the seal is dam aged rem ove the seal and and place it upside
down with the top edge now at the bottom . Replace the seal set if it is too worn.
Dust escapes from under the guard
See above Rem edies under Dust Escapes W hile Edging.
Hold the grinder so that the diam ond grinding wheel is flat on the floor and the m ain
seal of the dust guard is evenly adjusted all around the guard.
Is the dust guard operating on a flat surface? Uneven surfaces will reduce the
vacuum force around the m ain seal.
Is the edging cover strip attached and properly adjusted for height?
On the 5" guard, it is possible to block off only one edging section with the edging
cover strip to increase vacuum effectiveness while edging.
Is the grinder being used over an edge which will reduce the suction around the seal.
Check the condition of the seal and replace if there are tears other than at the front
where the diam ond grinding wheel protrudes.
Use a finer diam ond m esh sized grinding wheel.
Dust escapes from under the guard.
On soft concrete a coarse diam ond wheel can grind concrete faster than the vacuum
can collect. Use a harder bond diam ond grinding wheel. Soft bond diam ond
segm ents are used on hard concrete and m ay dig into soft concrete too quickly for
efficient collection ability of the vacuum .

Diam ond grinding wheel rubs
Use m ore spacers under the diam ond grinding wheel. If the wheel is too flat in
against the steel guard when fitted
profile purchase an extended nut and spacer instead of using the spacer washers.
Check to see that the dust guard’s m ounting collar is pushed down hard against the
grinder’s bearing housing.
Use a deeper dished diam ond grinding wheel.

enough to tighten the fit. Unscrew the clam ping screws until they are no longer
protruding into the inside of the m ounting collar.
Change the insert to a sm aller thickness.
Hook m aterial has com e loose from
the dust guard
Replace the dust guard. The hook m aterial is perm anently attached to the dust guard
body and is norm ally loosened only by allowing the dust guard to get too hot by
grinding hard concrete with the wrong type of diam ond grinding wheel.
The grinder jum ps and debris is
Use a less aggressive diam ond grinding wheel. PCD scraper wheels can cause this
being thrown from under the seal
problem . It is rare for it to occur with diam ond segm ented grinding wheels.
SAFETY
Always turn on the vacuum before using the dust guard.
Do not use diamond grinding wheels with a larger diameter than recommended for the guard.
Always use the original main seals.
Use a dust collector vacuum with sufficient power and only use one attachment for each dust collector.
Wear suitable breathing safety equipment while grinding. Wear hearing protection while grinding.
Wear eye protection goggles while grinding.
Do not lift the guard from the surface being ground while the grinder is still operating.
Keep the filters of the vacuum clean. Empty dust into sealed receptors or use sealed plastic bags.
Do not sweep floors after grinding which creates airborne dust - always use a vacuum and floor nozzle to remove surface dust.
Never place any part of your body or objects under the dust guard while the motor is activated.
Do not grind over electrical cables, metal objects or loose material that could fly out from under the main seal at high speed.
Clean the dust guard thoroughly with a brush and vacuum to remove loose dust before storage.
Before removing the hose from the dust collector shake the hose with the vacuum motor operating to dislodge loose dust that
may fall out later.
