In the manual for the mower and other equipment I purchased it states, "WARNING: Some dust created by power cutting contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
- Lead from lead-base paints
- Crystalline silca bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
- Arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber."
One of the primary reasons I purchased these products was their environmentally friendliness. When I hear wording like this it makes me think that when I use the product I am sending toxic dust into the air. Is this accurate? Can you explain exactly what is in EGO products that's considered toxic? If it is as bad as it sounds, is there anything you can do to prevent sending this kind of dust into the air?
Thank you for your help.
