WHAT DIDN’T I LIKE ABOUT JACKSON HSL100?
Jackson HSL 100 welding helmet can be used for welding and grinding purposes also. But unfortunately, you can switch on/off grind mode from its control pad only. There isn’t any option of switching it on/off from outside the hood. This makes it quite cumbersome for you to stop your work, put off the helmet, and then turn on the grind mode and wear the helmet again.
Of course, it is!
But never mind, as long as you are getting a high level of protection then such cons are of no worth.
If you want the complete neck and eye protection with outstanding visibility then Jackson HSL 100 welding helmet is the right choice for you.
