All I can say is this is one great dust hood. I have used numerous dust masks over the years from the basic cheap disposable masks, the replacable cartridge masks and now this air shield pro dust hood. I do alot of grinding and sanding and have been making more dust than ever lately.
The air shield pro is a unit that keeps the dust out of my lungs most importantly…but it also is effective in that no dust gets in my eyes… no more burning watering eyes due to dust.
Reviews of earlier models of the basic air shield always stated that it seemed top heavy due to the location of the battery in front. For this reason I put off buying one. With the pro model the battery and fan are in the back, so I decided to purchase one. I find it comfortable as can be expected for wearing 2.2 pounds on my head for extended periods.
The fan is quiet and most of the thime i do not even realize it is running.
It would be an improvement if a lithium-ion battery were available…but apparently it is not.
