    Default Re: Hearing protection

    I do not consider operating my tractor to be loud enough to warrant hearing protection, but with my bulldozer I typically do. That engine kind of has a "bark" to it, so I always have a pair of earmuffs in the glove compartment.

    My skidder however cannot be operated without hearing protection...it is loud, and it has a very "shrill" sound to it. because a skidder typically is used only for logging, I have a hard hat with ear muffs attached to it so that I can fend off widow-makers.
