A colleague called Samran, 39, said they had been clearing up the area around a pond at the temple of Wat Ban Rai in preparation for the Loy Krathong celebration this weekend. 

 

He heard his friend cry out in pain and thought that the blade snapped when it hit a stone.

Nothing wrong with these blades if used properly, might have helped if the operator was using proper wellington boots with shin protection.

Many Operators of these Bush Whackers wear a Heavy Leather Apron that reaches to the  Ground.

Stops any Stones, Broken Bottles Etc causing any injury.

That's a Honda UMK and that blade is not standard.

 

The blade will be 'Flying Monkey' brand or similar.

Wrong. The popular brand is 'Three Ducks Flying East' 😀

Surprised  those that do the central reservations on main roads  live  long anyway, if the cutter  doesn't get them the vehicles  will. Anytime I see them I give them a wide  berth for what they may  hurl  in my direction.
