Whack Lawns, Not the Shins!

A string trimmer, also called a "weed-whip", "whipper-snipper", "weed-whacker", a "weed eater" is an amazing outdoor power tool that keeps the borders of a lawn neatly manicured. A staple among professional lawn service personnel and used by many home owners, gas power weed whackers work by using rapidly spinning blades or microfilament lines of different diameters stiff enough to cut grass, weeds and brush making landscaping jobs easier, faster and more cosmetically appealing, but like any other power tool, there are precautions.

There are dangers associated with the use of weed whackers and if they aren’t handled properly, it could result in personal injury, infection or a trip to the emergency room. In fact, the Center for Injury Sciences stated that an estimated 81,907 injuries involving a lawn trimmer, more commonly referred to as a weed wacker or weed eater, occurred from 2000-2009. These were just the injuries that were reported. Many more were treated in the home and not reported.

String trimmers can be top heavy and individuals should always maintain a safe grip with two hands but there are instances where one needs to use one hand to open let’s say a gate. The weight of the trimmer can cause the base to kick back and by the time your brain realizes what just happened, your clothes or boots are ripped apart or worse, layers of skin have been stripped away causing welts and great discomfort for many days. Lawns have many particles including stones, mulch, golf balls and even glass all of which can fly off the ground. The higher the rate at which these particles are flying, the higher the probability of pebbles and hard particles being thrown at and wounding you, making Shin Guardz™ ideal for lawn cutting personnel.
