Low-Cost Powered Dust Helmet
Nelson has sold thousands of the original Racal dust helmets at more than $300 apiece, and they're still on the market. But he says his new model, which retails for just $129, is ideal for "light users" who don't need a helmet every day. "Heavier users" will probably still want to look at the more expensive model, which has a larger filter and battery pack.
On Airware's new self-contained powered helmet, the filter, rechargeable battery pack, and fan are all housed in the compartment above the large clear visor.
"It protects your eyes and face from flying debris and keeps out dust and pollen.
Filtered air is drawn down through the top of the visor, cooling your face and eliminating visor fogging," says Nelson. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Airware America, Hwy 54 South, P.O. Box 975, Elbow Lake, Minn. 56531 (ph 800 328-1792 or 218 685-4457; fax 4458).
