They run large. I normally wear a large but medium is what I wear in these. They sell them at harbor freight if you have one close by.

Remember to have all your orange cones out when parked. Front and rear driver’s side, and one one the passenger side so when picked up, you do the “circle of safety”. This also applies when gassing up at the station. You can’t be too safe! The life you save may be your own.

A lot of utility company’s require such things. Even when stopping at McDonald’s to eat.

Same here. When I started out bottledigging (14 y.o.) I stupidly would get down to where the bottle was, then stick my hand in and finish freeing it up - only to feel that weird slicing and pull out a bloody finger/hand. I learned very quickly to just use my small digger and other tools around it and extract it after I could see what I had. VERY seldom broke any bottle that way. Most that came out broke were in the ground that way already. I MD the same way. Gloves are just too bulky for intricate work like that for me. Cannot remember last time I was cut.

The same for driving in winter with a cold steering wheel. I never could wear gloves driving.

Well, sure, but that's a CYA thing as they are afraid of lawsuits. That being said, I do keep cones in the rig.

ditto.

Found yesterday in a hole at a neighbors yard.
About 5 inches down, full razor blade.

I've been wearing 2 Harbor Freight specials and YES I have a dirty grip...on my detector that is. But what a great idea...I am gonna lose the right one and keep my grip clean from now on.
