Air Scrubbers


I am looking at a pred 1200 air scrubber for my plaster nasty job. Anyone own one or use one?

I looked at that a while back. Was a nice setup but didn't do what I needed it to do. I wanted it to be able to work as a negative pressure system and Vent to out side, reversible so I could use it as a blower or extractor, suck dust when cutting floors, self contained unit so no extra space taken up.

Here's what I went with. I use a 1 micron filter which works really well with drywall dust and concrete grinding dust.

What brand is it? does it work with old nasty loose fill insulation and 100 yr old plaster?

What does it cost and can I get replacement filters for it?

Kevin, You could rent one at http://www.drying-solutions.com . Still not cheap, but depending on how often you might use one.

Did a sandblasting job sometime back and had to set up this to keep a warehouse from filling up with to much dust.
