I use these as well.
I and my employees use hearing protection on everything from a 21" mower and up.
Any handheld gas equipment, anything with a internal combustion engine and the protection is there.
Not only is this a required facet of my uniform policy, I will royally ream a new hole for any one not wearing the ear protection and eye protection I provide.
Additionally, I will not and will never allow non employees near equipment when it is running. Provided a customer wishes to speak with any member of my crews, they are for-warned to keep their distance and attract the attention of whomever it is they wish to speak to.
And yes, I have chastised customers as well.
I use Peltors and I love em!!
I wear both ear plugs and ear covers when mowing.
Here in Oklahoma, we scalp bermuda grass lawns this time of the year, it is a nasty, dirty job.
Earplugs have two purposes when scalping. Reducing the noise, and keeping your inner ear clean!
I use the work tunes. I bought a satelite radio and it plays through my work tunes radio. Its small so I just stick it in my pocket and away I go. I listen to unsensored comedy while I work.
I don't use them at the moment but I will be starting to sometime...Just not sure when.
We use them with any piece of equipment that cranks. If it has a motor, we have ear plugs.
what did you say? i could'nt hear you. a childhood of working in my family's factory, combined with shooting untold thousands of rounds from various guns, with a twist of multiple rock concerts has rendered me hearing-impared. but it's nice when the wife is complaining or the kids are fighting. seriously, by the time i realized what was happening, it was too late. i would recommend protection to anyone in the business. i can now shoot my .45 without plugs and it doesn't hurt which is REALLY wrong.
