Best Colour laser printer for dusty workshop?

What do you suggest? Sick of stripping down the HP LJ3800 to clean the mirrors every 3 months. Can anyone suggest one that would at least be easier to get to, and clean the laser unit?

Dust is the enemy of anything with small moving parts, so I doubt any printer will do any better. Cover it up when its not in use perhaps.

Buy or build a box for it to sit in

yeah just build a clear perspex box with lid on hinges.

Yep I agree, with ventilation holes also some how with a filter to stop the dust getting in. Has laser printer do generate a lot of heat with the "fusing stage".

you could put a hamster in it too

Boxes aren't an option. They need one that will still need regular cleaning, but just not so involved. There must be one brand or model better than the others.
