After another dry day Breathing Ga. red clay<br>dust I started wondering how many people out there use some form of dust mask.<br>I have tried but very uncomfortable.

dennis--are you running a mulcher? when the dust is high, I hate mulching because of the dust. you are always in it!<p>during the prime dust season--fall with leaves, I do wear the paper filter masks. they &quot;inhale&quot; badly but they work. good luck!<p>GEO

This brings a question to my mind, no I don't use them I would die faster, the question is are there any regulations on the books that require a liquid applicator person to wear some sort of protective gear, i.e., gloves, respirator, goggles.... I ask this because i see the technicians around here all the time spraying away with no protection at all. Look at the truck with the tank on it and see the paint eaten off, rust and corrosion!! Some are slow learners I agree but seems like OSHA would bust their butts good if they got caught!<p>Homer

I used to wear a paper respirator when slashing to combat the constant sneezing.<br>Only result I got was dust mask filled with<br>snot. Very untidy. :)<p>Karl<br>
