Next find the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). My husband and I both work on an industrial site, so this has become second nature to us. Apart from being able to bring home various items from work, we also feel wrong doing work without it. The minimum is usually long pants, long sleeves, steel-capped boots, safety glasses, hearing protection, sun protection and gloves. For the whipper snipper we also sometimes use goggles and/or a visor depending on the work. I see lots of people whipper snipping in thongs/jandles and shorts, I can't believe it, I would not feel comfortable doing that, I recommend you invest in some decent PPE and look after it, it may save your fingers, toes, eyesight or your life one day.

Any tips for working with small motors?
