yea i get what you are saying my guys tend to take them off they do not like them , cannot get underneath deck steps around gas meters etc , I put them out with guards on them and they disapear so if that happens Im certainly not going to get to cranky about it , its hard to keep good help. It is faster without a guard on open space trimming , but for normal trimming im not shure it makes a difference. Thanks for the advice though , sometimes you always forget to think about that kind of stuff till it kicks you in the but.
