I run a lawn business (amongst other things) and am exposed to a decent amount of 4 stroke and some 2 stroke fumes throughout the day. My equipment is working properly and has no visible smoke coming out.
Now, all summer I haven’t experienced this, but just recently since things are a little drier here in S. Fla. I have been getting this weird breathing problem that happened a lot last winter, and a lot in my 3 years as a lawn guy… I can’t take a full, deep breath without feeling tight and then coughing.
Now, since this problem seems to correlate with dry conditions (my nose is full of dirt at the end of the day), could this be from inhaling too much dust and dirt, or is this a fume problem? Is it CO inhalation?
This problem usually goes away slowly within 4-5 hours. Is this problem a cause for alarm?
