Being a "saw guy" I carry a full medical kit any time I'm sawing. I also have full PPE given I run pretty big saws and any mistake is going wrong in a hurry. I cannot stress enough the importance of chainsaw pants, I wear Clogger DefenderPro Gen2 pants and metatarsi boots, along with Echo Kevlar Chainsaw gloves and Husqvarna 588646001 Technical Forest Helmet. The pants saved my shin from what would have been a serious axe wound when the axe bounced off a limb I was chopping, so they've more than paid for themselves.

Guys (and gals), this is really cheap insurance considering the cost over time of use. I've been in the woods 40+ years with no accidents until last year, and it wasn't even a chainsaw accident yet the investment in Personal Protection Equipment paid for itself multiple times over. (It really, really hurt though.)

Thanks to members here I'll be mounting a fire extinguisher to my tractor too.

Do not buy an extinguisher with ANY plastic discharge parts.
To include valve assembly, as well as discharge handle.

Due to the Kiddie fialure-to-fire recall, or some other reason?
I had one of the Kidde fire extinguishers that was recalled. They sent me a replacement with a metal valve and I sent the plastic valve extinguisher back in the pre-paid box.

The plastic valve/nozzle and handle parts tend to fail/break, when discharging cheap consumer grade extinguishers.
Stay away from the big box store extinguishers!

I always thought a "drug" was something taken for illness, and usually purchased at a "drug" store.
Many things can be dragged,.....but golf carts can be "drug"?

I had 6 of the Plastic-valve/handle Kidde’s….and sent them a pic of them. Kidde sent me 6 metal valve extinguishers. I contacted them and asked if they wanted me to return the plastic ones…. and they sent me 6 more metal extinguishers. :oops:

You need to expand your vocabulary to understand how dialects work.

"dialects" and pidgin English are very different animals!

Got an early start this morning. Hooked the RCR1872 up to the smaller tractor and mowed a few acres in front of the wildlife observation tower :LOL: . Grass was 16-20 inches tall and wanted to knock down the fireweed and butter cups in it. When the sun came up the better half did some mowing along the driveway. Just another beautiful morning in paradise.

Southern dialect and English pidgin are different, so I guess you agree with me.

So that is wicked good!
Southern "dialect" is not pidgin English.
It is a "dialect."
Statements like: "Me and him", "Her and I", etc., are not part of ANY dialect!
