Any good advise on protecting yourself from being blasted by grass?

    You know what I mean. Several of my large acounts along the river here get so windy, when I make the pass where my discharge faces into the wind, that grass just blasts me big time. I get it in the face, down my shirt, every where. Ive tried wrap around glasses and deflectors with little effect, but I was wondering if any body has any other methods of protection short of wrapping your self up like a mummy. The acount in particular is very hilly and the wind seems to rush down and pick up the clippings & blast me. I look like a green monster when Im done. Pull into a gas station or store, whip out my walet and dump a hadfull of grass on the counter. :alien:

    Have you considered a mulching mower? It would solve your problem. Why not demo one.

    Or you could just put a mulch kit on the mower you already have? Since mulching, that problem has pretty much been eliminated for me. Hope it helps
