Respirators

Ken George
>Would like to resurrect the respirator issue. I just searched the past year and came up short. After roughing some logs yesterday using just a face shield my nasal passages were complaining and running some ugly stuff.
What is your recommendation for respirators? The Trend Airshield looks like a good unit but is it heavy and burdensome on the head?
Is the Triton unit with the belt supported battery lighter and less burdensome? Or is there other options?
I have read stories about turners developing lung problems due to dust and don't want to join their ranks.
Thanks,

Ken
