Scott has a special on SCBA units, $2,400 for either the 35 or 4500 cylinder. Get 30-40 minutes on a cylinder. Stallion has a deal on filling stations, $6,000 for the small unit....Ok, let’s talk lung protection if you please. I’ve been wearing a 3m respirator for years and I’m looking to go next level. I’d like to protect my face and lungs at the same time lol. I’ve now also moved to making metal objects on a metal lathe so that just adds to my concern for lung protection.
I’ve always held back because of cost and because of neck and headache issues. I can’t have all the weight of the self contained units on my neck and the straps of even the 3M unit I currently wear can cause headaches. I really need something similar in design to my face shield from Bionic. I can wear that all day with no issues.
Do any of you have recommendations? There seem to be a few systems out there and lots of praises and complaints for them all. The difficult thing is not being able to put my hands on them easily to try them out.
Thanks in advance for any and all input.
