No more dust in my eyes!!! This time of year my chopper tends to create a cloud of dust around me, and I have solved the probem in style. No more dust in the corners of my eyes when I wake up!

Hope you don't scare the customers.

The guys in the shop are always busting my balls because I'm the shop safety monitor. They would always run up to me and ask me to wear this stuff to the extreme. Its pretty funny actually.

nice, it doubles as a Halloween costume, lol!

Man, you should put a couple of 45mm's on the side and go to Afghanistan! I'd run for the hills if I saw you comin' at me with that !!!:blob4:

So where's the rest of the FLIGHT SUIT? Just kidding, it looks like a great idea. I got a pair of those when I bought my Sthil grass trimmer. Never used them except to sharpen blades. Just might have to dig them out for the FALL season.

that's good but what about breathing all that crap?i'm looking into getting a FULL face mask with the dual respirators-the kind you'd wear when sprayin' paint or pesticides. i think lesco has them.

guido's goggles remind me of one of my favorite " Andy Griffith" shows where Barney buys a motorcycle with a sidecar for the Sheriffs Dept. He decks himself out in high boots, leather gloves, helmet, and goggles just like guidos. I'ts a riot. LOL:D

Lawnworks, I was in the airforce in 1970-72 and got a couple of rides in the T38 fighter trainers - (those white delta wing planes that follow the shuttles down when they land from their space flights) and your goggles are only short a G suit and helmet from you looking just like the jet jockeys of the 70's. If you were only running the jet engine dixie from tool time and had the G suit and helmet we would believe you could fly. Thanks Brad

I was asked the other day by someone that saw me cutting from a distance if I had bought a gas mask. I guess I do look a little wild with goggles, dust mask, hat, ear plugs all in. But, I wouldn't have it any other way especially this time of year. Leaf dust is the worst on my lungs.

I know I breathe in alot of dust, but I just cannot stand those little dust masks where you breathe in your own breath.

Nice setup! The earmuffs also cut down on the Q-Tip bill ! Not to mention they keep your ears warm too! Now you need something to keep that grin off your face! ;)

Just noticed that your picture was taken with engine off (hopefully)! As your brake is on, your tires are pointed in the opposite direction as your locked and loaded arms keeping those levers foreward!!

Keep on grindin'

Thats a good idea, I may dig out my old 4 wheelin' goggles.

Actually your wrong, its this new black fescue we're secretly working on over here in Germany. It's going to replace asphalt roads as you know them, and give us more work!

I was wearing just a dust mask while on the mower and safety glasses when weedeating. Until the other day when a tree limb smashed into the tearduct of my eye almost hitting me directly in the eye. So I have tried wearing saftey glasses with the dust mask but the safety glasses keep fogging up. I need me some of them goggle. I dont like the plastic ones that are uncomfortable and they must work with the mask.

When I first saw the pic, I thought it looked pretty silly. Then today I did my first attempt at mukching leaves with doubles and a mulch kit on my Metro. OH MY GOD! It was almost unbearable!
The blow out was ridiculous. Besides being incredibly dirty, it just wasn't very efficient.
The way the leaves were just blowing forward ahead of the mower reminded me of that comedy routine were ya go to pick up a hat and keep kicking it forward every time you bend over to pick it up!
Plus I had to keep stopping to clear of the deck.

Then I remembered someone saying to go in reverse (I think it was Casey). Wow! What a difference! Blow out almost gone completely, no more chasing down leaves, and leaves shredded to dust. Grass looked great.

BUT (yeah, there's a but), on my 36" Exmark Metro there is only a "reverse assist", which isn't much help. I was basically just pulling the mower around backwards. Not easy!

So on a mower with a real reverse, and on a fairly flat lawn, this works great. I may have to try something different for my mower though.

Dave aka Guido aka Gwee Doh Took me a few minute to stop "LMAO" !!!!!!

Gogetter Pull hard dude, keep pulling.:D LOL

Glad to see you still have your sense of humor in Germany!

It's the only way we're staying sane working 100 hour weeks during all this stuff.

You gotta have fun. Fun = high morale = happy people = better and more work!
