Would you use a flail mower while wearing shorts and running shoes?

As long as I had safety glasses, ear protection, and a condom. Then, yes.

 

Oops, I meant a cup.

Not me either, but then again I ride a motorcycle with a helmet, boots and riding gear and some people don't.

That's like the other day I watch a video with a guy operating a chain saw in shorts and tennis shoes.  I like to have protection and at my age things don't heal to fast.

I think not!

Due to my job, I have gotten so use to pants in the summer, I feel uncomfortable doing any type of work in shorts. Safety first, and common sense!  Tom

   Last time I bush hogged I wore a T-shirt, got poison ivy all over my shoulders and back, took me a week to heal up.  I always wear protection

I don't know what you guys are getting so freaked out about.

 

There is a shield at the rear that it pretty much dragging the ground and there isn't any debris coming out towards the operator.

 

You can see at the beginning that there was a gap between the ground and the shield, but when he adjusted the rear roller, he eliminated that gap.

 

Looks like a perfectly safe attachment to me.
