    I just thought Id throw this out there for anyone who hasnt thought of it. Carry a spare bottle of water, not to drink (preferably one of the sports style squirt bottles). Last year I had one of those stupid safety gas cans and it built up pressure and I went to fill the weed wacker and the gas sprayed all over my face and in my eyes and holy hell, STING like a mother!!! :cry: I was lucky enough to have a full Gatorade in the squirt style bottle and sprayed my eyes out. So just a pre mow season tip, keep an extra bottle on hand:drinkup:

    You may be better off going to a drugstore or wal-mart and buying an eyewash bottle. Kind of the same concept, (Although smaller) and only costs about $2.

    The issue with water is that unless you change it everyday or add chemicals, its going to become loaded with bacteria very quickly.
