    Can you modify any type of helmet to accept forced air? Thanks
    The air pumper only draws about 4 amps, so unless your running a lot of lights or other accessories you'd be fine. If you got big light bars, coms system, winch and the likes, you may want to think about more juice. Also the 16's stator puts out 40 amps whereas the 17's put out 70 amps, don't know what you got.
    Yes, there is a kit to retro fit your non-air helmet into a fresh air helmet, someone had posted a link or web page of a co. that makes them, I think it may be in this thread, do a search for it or goggle it. I also need to pick one up for my extra helmet so I'll take a look also and when I locate it I'll shoot you a P.M. .

    The pumper draws about 3amps. Bell does make a kit that can be added to a helmet. I tried it and ended up just buying a new helmet.

    Im pretty sure my pci pumper pulls 6-7 amps because of the larger motor. That was a bit of a concern when i was shopping but after hearing how loud the rugged was compared, and knowing that a dual battery setup was in my game plan, it was an easy decision

    Didn't like the way the add on kit functioned. The actual air helmet works way better. Was also trying to add it to my wife's modular helmet, but could not get it to mount properly. So she won't be having an air helmet. She will just have to hold her breath when it gets dusty .

    That is a good question privateer, I also looked at all the major components and they do have the same #'s. I did read that however, I'll have to find the source, they were talking about all the differences between the 16 & 17 and that was one of the points. The reason they gave was the 16 was known to be low on power and the extra power the SS required for the servos. I'll find it and have to report back.

    The new rugged pumper doubles the air and draws 3-4 amps
    If your not first, your last
