We use our HEPA vacs quite a bit, they are expensive but do the job. I have the 13 gallon Bosch vac that is HEPA ready, It is still in the box. I did pick up the cordless heap vac for $119 a while back. It is so convenient, that that one gets the most use of any. no cords to drag around and very light. Most jobs we do not even take a corded vac any more.
with the RRP paws and the new silica standards, they are nothing to mess around with. We take the silica very seriously and have invested in a lot of the drill attachments and flow through bits for drilling concrete. As for the RRP, I just avoid those jobs, to much paperwork involved.
Good point , that’s one of the reasons I bought it also , compact and great price for something That’s already HEPA ready
I definitely can’t complain about that cordless vacuum , and I also have the 14 gallon , it’s amazing ,
Bizarre to read some comments again here, effects from bad work habits are cumulative. Just because one feels currently healthy should be a basis for not using precautions. Certainly I don’t always enjoy wearing a respirator, though sometimes it’s imperative. Dust and fumes aren’t something to be cavalier about…and the comments that take I to account loved ones are golden.
I love free choice. I’ll have to get a pic of the guy cutting the hardie board tomorrow, lol.
