isn't that the nastiest feeling with clippings all over your shins? i hate that.
forget about pants, what about some boots my friend?! safety 101...

is that a burn or a scrape?

If you can't find a coal oil rag try WD-40. it'll take the sting out of that wound immediately!

OMG! I never thought of it like that!!! you are right! and it was even self inflicted too!!!

actually what happened I was trimming up to a gate and trying to get it unlatched to go through.

they had stretch cord on the other side and I was trying to get it unhooked and apparently from that point I had a momentary lapse of reason! :eek:

I was kinda relieved when I looked down and saw it was the trimmer trying to chop off my leg instead of a copperhead chewing on me or yellow jackets heading north!

and when I got home, the spousal unit was all over me about it...... nag-nag-nag!

I just had to remind her about the "hedge trimmer thing" and she was glad there weren't metal blades attached. LOL!

GEO :D

I hate to admit but I caught my wifes heel with the string trimmer line one day while walking behind her. She had pants on and I think it stung me more than it did her but that string can do a number. I was idling at the time too.
I have been in EMS for 19 years and I can't ever remember the coal oil rag or the WD-40 anywhere in the annals of modern emergency medicine. I guess this site is educational in more than one way.

Dang Geo! That's what my legs look like if I get smoked by a piece of that good ole' Lavarock launched by the trimmer...
