I wanted a respirator that I could wear all by itself.
I didn’t want to contend with any head gear.
I have used regular dust masks over the years, but after wearing them for awhile,
it takes a lot more effort to breath.
After seeing this one in Rockler I ordered one.
It’s surprising how that little built in fan helps in your breathing, & it keeps your face cool.
The fan is very quiet, & it runs on 4 AA batteries. (Notice the battery pack on his waist.)
After trying it for awhile, I was so satisfied with it, I ordered another for my son.
He installs, & refinishes floors, so he has used his everyday on the job since last May, 2007.
I asked him today how he liked it, & he said he won’t work without.
The only thing that he didn’t care for was the band that goes over the head has little knobs that feel like needles
poking in his head, but that can be remedied.
I haven’t used mine as much as he has, but I believe he’s telling me the truth.
I recommend this respirator, & the price isn’t too bad either.
