I spent about 1 1/2 hour yesterday using a string trimmer to knock down some weeds and tall grass in front of the SIL's new barn. When I got home my wife asked me what happened to my arm since it had several large blisters and a red spot about the size of a tennis ball. Apparently the heat off the trimmer engine had slowly cooked the skin to the point of causing a large second degree burn and since I have some nerve damage to both arms I can not feel pain in that area.
Something to think about.
