Recommend Radios for Construction

  1. CP200D 2-Way Radios
  2. CP185 2-Way Radios


We highly recommend the CP200D two-way radio from Motorola, it is one of the most durable radios that we sell, in fact, it's our #1 top seller, especially for the construction industry.

The CP185 is a second choice, but the CP185 has a display that we do not recommend for the construction industry. Since people in construction are constantly dropping their radios, a radio display is not recommended because no matter how durable a radio is, a display is a weak link and that can crack if the radio is constantly being dropped.
