Construction site managers know the difficulties of orchestrating all the moving parts of a project to make it successful — that’s why many use walkie talkies to communicate. Onsite two-way business radios are a great solution to managing all of the assets and operations while working on a project. They offer instant communication between supervisors and their employees, which creates a more efficient and productive work environment. Being able to consistently and seamlessly communicate with everyone on site can reduce wasted time and save companies money. Listed here are a handful of walkie talkies that we believe work well on a construction site.
The radios listed here are both low and high powered, UHF, robust and durable radios for construction. If you’re working outside on a smaller job site, we recommend going with a 2 watt radio — either the Motorola RMU2040 or Kenwood TK3400. If you want more clear and consistent coverage on a larger job site, we would recommend a 4 or 5 watt radio — the Motorola RDU4100, the Icom IC-F4001, the Blackbox Bantam UHF, or the Kenwood TK3402. Although they are not name brand, both Icom and Blackbox make a fantastic product comparable to Motorola and Kenwood, they are just much less expensive.
