Anyone else having problems with the br800 pinching your forearm skin? Love the blower but since it’s warmed up and the sweaters came off the cable from the pistol grip pinches our forearm skin between the flex tube. Seriously causing bruising on my forearm! My guys as well.

I have not had this issue at all and use my BR800 often with short sleeves. Not that it matters, but do you have the X or C model?

Trying to figure out which one to get .with the 800 the handle is wierd so i dont know how i would hang it in my enclosed trailer what options have yall found besides buying a blower rack? i use tornado hooks now mounted thru an extra square of plywood works great thanks!
