Top Construction Site Work Radios

Tough Radios for the Building Site

Make the work day go by a little faster with the Top Construction Site Work Radios found here. These have multiple functions, with some having charging stations built-in or extra plugs on the side.

These machines are work tough so they will stand up to all the dirt and abuse you can throw at them.

Work radios are not just for construction sites, but also tough enough for keeping in your barn. It’s nice to listen to the radio while you work around there. My friend has several horses and a couple head of cattle. Radios in that type of barn have to be able to take the abuse of falling down without breaking and maybe even getting kicked by a rogue animal or two. They’ve found that having soft music play on a radio in their barn helps milking cows and/or goats feel less stressed.

Weather is also important to farmers and outdoor workers, so why not get up-to-the-minute weather reports from your construction grade work radio as well?

My Grandfather Would Have Liked a Tough Radio Like These – When He Worked in the Kansas Oilfields

It was hard, dirty work that my grandfather did and my dad too. When Dad was a roughneck in the oil fields around El Dorado, they would have a small, portable building where they kept their tools, their lunch pails and changed into their coveralls.

I don’t know how much time they spent inside the doghouse, as they called the small building. It would give them some shelter from the harsh Kansas winter weather. Outside by the oil rig, it was probably too noisy for a radio, but inside when they rested a bit, it would have been nice to have.

Features to Look for When Choosing a Radio – for Building Site Use

1. If you’ll be using it with a battery pack, look at what other cordless tools you have and stick with the same brand. Look at how long it says the battery will run.

2. Look for a built in charger. You can use it as well as a stand-alone battery charger.

3. Some nice features to have: USB ports, extra power outlets, memory card slots, a sub-woofer.

4. Pick it up and feel the weight of it. Think about carrying it back and forth to the truck each day. Consider the space it takes. Will it be in the road while you are working?
