Mine sure was. Wand slipped out of my hand and the trigger hit the stair tread and burned like a sun of a B! Couldn’t get the shoe and six off fast enough. First burn in a llllllllong time. That was last week

I was wondering how hot water can do that much damage.
I know oils @ 400 degrees can burn like that but water kind of surprised me as it can not get 400 degrees and stay in solid form.

Thats crazy man. Bad burn.

If only my diesel heater made water over 100 degrees anymore I might have to worry about it. Thing has a mind of its own.

Hopefully the last burn for you.

This cleaner got bit by a spider that was hiding in the spigot as he hooked up the water. Bicep about to blow up.

Pit bull bite through my boot, cut my nose in half with a angle grinder removing nails in terrazzo (10 stiches) thank god I was wearing goggles or I would be out a eye too. Snapped a tendon in my left foot tripping over my hoses, made the mistake of going to work the next day and the next..... Now that's a forever injury. Broke my right heel falling out of the van on a rainy day, its only been 8 months and it still hurts I guess that's my most recent.
Otherwise normal blue collar stuff like crippling back pain, tennis elbow, tendonitus, finger slammed in the door leads to losing a fingernail for a year or so. Guess I need to take more pictures of this stuff for reasons..
