What are great boom boxes for a construction site?

  1. Bosch PB360S Radio & Charger
  2. Milwaukee M18 Job Site Radio & Charger
  3. Milwaukee 2790-20
  4. Dewalt DCR015 Heavy Duty Radio

Working at the construction site can be hard and quite monotonic. Music is one of the things that makes the time fly by and lighten the mood. Sadly, not every music device is appropriate for this environment. And headphones are pretty much hazard if you get too distracted. The boombox could be a perfect fit for this kind of surrounding, but there are certain criteria that have to be fulfilled. In that sense, you need something:
-Powerful enough so it can be heard
Here is a short guide to 5 different radios that are made for playing specifically on the construction site.

Except the 360-degree sound it’s a radio that will withstand any kind of weather: rain, snow, wind and dust. It doesn’t have the Bluetooth capacity but other features definitely make up for it. If you are looking for something that not only helps you get through the work but also help you get the job done easier, this is the boombox you are looking for.
