I would love to wear shorts BUT the dang kick back grass clippings from trimming are too much - stuck to your legs like glue when mixed with sweat.

not to mention thornes in your shins along with glass shards and the mixture of blood, sweat and grass. shorts for professional mowing is just plain stupid

DA said it best........

any kind of kick back from the trimmer is hell on your legs. it makes a mess and sometimes hurts depending on what kind of kick back you get.

every have a small piece of mulch thrown at your leg from a mulch bed. or how about when your trimming the weeds out of the cracks of the driveways and sidewalks. you pick up a pebble you can hardly see with that trimmer and it throws it at your legs. it stings a bit on bare skin.
