    I use the gloves also.....a hook might be nice my hose has a tendency to grab when I am using the gloves and they can heat up rather quickly.....but as I understand the regulations in Nebraska you must wear the gloves as part of your personal protection equipment whenever you are handling your equipment if you are spraying any kind of pesticide

    I wear golves and use a nasty rag to take all the friction. Really works well once it gets wet.

    Buy a storage hook used to hang stuff and attach a lawn mower rubber handle, one that you use to start the machine, and now you have a custom made handle for less than $2.00. The Chemlawn version sells for $20 USD.;)
     
  5. Ditto, but I don't pull a hose too much anymore.
