    so my hands are bad enough from lifting weights over the past 5 years but calisus(??) use to never bother me this year my hands are all ****** up from my scag walkbehind i have cuts,scrapes, bubbled up nastiness and i wear gloves....

    Is there some sort of cushions that can be bought for the handlebars or any home made devices i wrapped them up with a huge sponge and heavy tape job but its not getting the job done anymore like it did last year

    I prefer the T-Bar myself, But I dont get to many days off to visit them. Therfore, I will just continue to use my Scags.

    Just a sugguestion. What about using the padded bicycle gloves. That might work. Or what about tapeing your hands like boxers do? (just not as much) Good luck. :drinkup:

    That sucks! The SCAG wb's I have been behind tear my hands up too! I am an ex golf professional who used to hit 500 practice balls a day. I thought I had caluses on top of caluses until the SCAG's. Honestly after mowing w/ that for a couple weeks, it felt like a had a roll of dimes uder my fingers. I now have Hustler wb's.
