Now, there is real truth here!!!
Why is this so? It seems like working in a freezer. I suppose the problem is lack of movement, ... sitting in one place, strapped in with the belt, and only making slow hand/arm motions. The hands are exposed, fingers out in the open.
I work in double gloves, but fingers take a beating. Yesterday, the high temp was about 34. I had two side-by-side properties, one about 1.8A, the other 1.5A. I work with a 48" ztr. I stopped twice just to move my body. Even so, I always feel I need somebody standing nearby to pry me out of the seat. I'm sure my age has something to do with it, but the body gets stiff as a board, sitting in the same place for a long time.
I have discovered that crossing my feet, keeping the legs and ankles closer, is a help. I normally have my feet spread wide for support.
