    No, its best to learn from experience. If you do something long enough you'll discover things along the way. Eye protection is a must, but if I forget them it's not the end of the world.

    I agree its not the end of the world, until you lose an eye...even then it's not the end of the world, except the world will look a little different with one eye down. :usflag:

    I see a lot of guys around here no eye protection, no hearing protection, and they seem fine.

    I run no guard. But I do wear safety glasses. Wish I would of started wearing hearing protection when I started about 17 years ago. I can tell you all over 17 years of running equipment that my hearing has gotten alot worse. My wife says I say huh and what did you say alot more. LOL

    I will not work without eye and ear protection but trimmer guards they come off as soon as we leave the dealer.

    Ha ha, that was a good one, it must be the 17 years, she will probably hear those words even more now.
