“Used your gloves simply to cushion hands when using hand tools”
Gloves were bought 12/3/13 in an effort to avoid having to get new work gloves several times a season to prevent hand wounds. Am a home/property owner who does everything for myself. Used your gloves simply to cushion hands when using hand tools such as shovel, hoe, loppers, bow-saw, pole saw, hammer; and with power tools such as impact hammer and chainsaw. Cleaned gutters with them. And, used gloves for protection when performing tree felling and shrub removal, chipper feeding, log movement & loading, burning, shredded bark placement, and stump removal.
Have a seriously wicked and invasive barbed shrub here called buckthorn which had to be frequently cleared and protected from. Used gloves to remove rocks and weeds from landscaping and foundation holes and features, and for planting new stock. Used gloves to move broken up concrete slabs.
Tried Youngstown’s $30 gloves when yours were wearing out, but, they didn’t even last 6 months, so have used the Ironclads a little more. Went to your website to find a local dealer, since they were no longer carried at my original purchase site.
