BAD BACK?? KNESS?

(1/10) > >>

Yodog:
Do appliance repair men have bad backs or knees? is this jobs hard on the body? could a person still do appliance repair when there in their 70's or older?  I'm thinking about learning this craft, I'm 28 now and in good physical shape.

bigbuck:
You can wear a back brace when needed, wear knee pads, or use a pad when kneeling on floor, should be ok. 70 years old=should be retired when you get this old. :)

theoldstoveguy:
Use a pad on the floor,looks professional and you are protecting the floor. I carry 3 moving pads (3x6 foot) and they work great.

Patricio:
I don't plan on retiring,  I am 60 & still going strong.  If you are doing something you enjoy why quit?   Are you going to 'retire' from fishing when you turn 70?

LowSL2:
I have a bad back and knees from working in an auto plant. Those Japanese cars and trucks are kinda small. Now i try to use knee pads and use plastic moving skids to move stuff around.
