  • Powered Respirator

    I know that this probably doesn't belong here, but I for one would like to see Ridgid come out with a powered respirator. I'm thinking of something like what Triton has, only better!

    For a review of the Triton tool (to get what I'm talking about):

    I think this is something that is desperatly needed in North America, and especially by Ridgid...I like my orange tools!

    So Mathew, please explain Ridgid's credentials in safety equipment? Frankly, while there are many good Ridgid tools, battery packs apparently aren't their strong suit.

    Seriously, stick with the established names in respirators---3-M, North, MSA, etc. If the work you're doing is potentially hazardous enough to require a respirator, don't mess with guess work or wait for one made by your favorite tool company.

      Ah, well, for me personally, all I would need is one for wood dust, mdf, particle board...but how much does it take to throw in an approved filter for slightly finer particles?
