The VacRam® was designed by DustRam, LLC to help speed the process of vacuuming coarse debris from the floor during the many stages of the tile removal process.
The DustRam® Contractors and other professionals were frustrated by the poor designs of many shop vac attachments, such as those with very short or multiple lengths, and those which did not securely hold the vacuum hose cuff in place. For this reason, the VacRam® was created.
The VacRam® is a 3D printed accessory that comes pre-attached to a 4 foot long, 1/8″ thick wall aluminum powder coated tube. The tube is designed to last for life under normal job site circumstances, and will not bend or flex. DustRam, LLC also manufactures many other dustless tile removal tools. designed to stay within the strict OSHA silica dust guidelines.
The 3D printed VacRam® part is designed to last for the life of the accessory, and will so long as it is not subjected to impacts or operator carelessness, such as being thrown into a pickup bed, trailer or dropped. The Rigid® floor brush is a wear item and must be replaced once it gets close to wearing towards the end of the VacRam®.
The Rigid floor brush is useful for vacuuming debris off wood and laminate flooring but the operator must take care not to scratch those surfaces. Removing the brush attachment permanently is the best tactic for removing coarse thinset and small tile chips from the subfloor surface.
Arizona Home Floors, LLC, a DustRam Certified Contractor has one Rigid floor brush to use for vacuuming delicate surfaces and four other Rigid floor brushes with the brushes removed for the tile removal process. This requires a total of five VacRams for the most productivity and efficiency.
The VacRam® allows for a secure connection between the vacuum hose and the VacRam® itself. Very long-reaching paths of debris can be removed quickly and thoroughly, provided the proper sized CFM vacuum is used (250 CFM or higher).
To purchase a VacRam® will require the purchaser to complete an NDA prior to the sale or shipment of equipment or accessories.
