The BigFoot Beta system replaces the default dust shoe supplied with the Z Head. It enables a high-airflow for dust extraction for SmartBench. It is for static installations where SmartBench is used for high throughput. The BigFoot system:

  • allows collection of larger chips (e.g. strands) without blocking, and 

  • can reduce the number of bag changes required between jobs (dust extractors which use larger bags)

  • Airflow 425L/s

Tests have proven the BigFoot system capability of collecting the following waste:
