    Prompt help will be greatly appreciates since we do nee to start our job very very soon.

    Thank you

    I have never seen any for RIDGID grinders, but they may make them.

    Bosch has some available for a few of their models.

    There are others with built-in dust collection, I have seen them in use on jobs but don't remember the makes off hand. Do some searching on Google or try , they may have the a concrete surfacing grinder from Bosch.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
