    Just wondering if anyone else has developed this. My wrists and hands fall asleep / go numb sometimes when im trimming and it is very painfull. I think I will have to have a sugery procedure to correct this in the off season.

    Maybe not that exactly, but my hands get numb.

    It's work that may need to be done in increments.

    Like trim some, clean some. Trim some, clean some.

    Get some anti vibration gloves! Get a different trimmer!

    i had the same problem except it started in my shoulders and moved down to my fingertips.. knock on wood... it went away,doing simple excercises for my arms. hopefully it will stay away!
