I was using my Redmax BCZ3001 to take down some overgrown St. Augustine down to about 6" on a major res cleanup, old foreclosed properties in the hood. I've used it for over 6mos without a problem or worry..awesome trimmer. About 10 mins from wrapping up the job, I have a sensation that my right shoe is full of water, like stepping in a 6" deep puddle. I look down, BLOOD everywhere! I didn't feel a thing and actually thought I had hit a small animal or something. I walk back to sit on the trailer, pull my jeans up and I had a 1/2" vertical cut down to the bone halfway up my shin, through my jeans! I'm still perplexed about this, I rarely get hit at all and the fact that my right leg is usually stepped back when trimming makes it more unusual. No pain, bruise or sensation of being cut whatsoever, almost like I got hit by a surgical scalpel. It clotted about 2 hours later, back to work the next day. Has anyone ever heard of this? You can't make this up!
