    Anyone wear a helmet while plowing or have employees wear one?

    FWIW, state law requires helmet usage on ATV's, even on private property.

    That I knew, me personally years ago, I even went & got my orv saftey cert. just figured it would look better just incase. The reason I ask, I have not seen one quad with a person wearing a helmet around these parts.I have never had any issues with city law enforcement, but was wondering if anyone has?

    when It was super cold Out I have worn a helmet just to try and keep my head a little warmer.

    helped a lot going down the road to the next job. my 3 drives was a 1/2 mile from end to end.

    so the road trip's didn't have the wind blowing in you face full force which was better than no helmet.

    I can remember two rookies make to the ER, One in a 580 and one in a Terex loader. The guy in the 580 took the rubber edge pusher off, The loader guy struck a piece of granite curb.

    I've worked with a couple of guys that should wear a helmet full time. Does that count?
