    I'm not getting hard of hearing, but I'm better at selective listening. :)

    Plugs and muffs as another guy said, takes the sound down to a whole new level, much quieter!

    Yes and I used to run loud printing presses so I think that's where the majority of my damage happened but running loud machines does'nt help either!

    I don't wear hearing protection either because I like to hear if anything goes wrong or when the hopper is ready to dump!

    Happy Mowing!
