Redbug said:Yes, I usually do wear ear protection when on the tractor. One thing...hearing damage is cumulative. Small amounts add up over time and that's why it's important to have hearing protection even if it's not too loud. Eye protection also when bush hogging.
Selling hearing aids will be big business in the next decades as the boom box/head phone crowd gets older. Now would be a good time to invest in hearing aid company stocks... Say whattt?

I have looked at the BOSE brand solid gold, platinium plated versions that slip over the ear and wrap behind the head, but I won't spend that many pesos. Any suggestions?
