About 6 years ago, as I was testing out my new string trimmer, I started to trim my own yard and I got hit in the eye with the head of a dandelion. Ever since than I always wear some kind of eye protection. I even go as far as to tell my neighbors of the importance of eye protection. Well...last week I was doing my last lawn of the day and it was just getting a little dark, my tinted glasses were a little to dark so I took them off. Wouldn't you know it , bam a rock in the eye. Luckily it hit my eye at a slow speed so no damage was done, but it hurt like heck. From now own I am going to keep 2 sets of glasses in my trucks: tinted and clear or yellow. Anyone trim with no eye or ear protection?
