          The vendor sent me the wrong shipping information. They said FedX was delivering & sent me a tracking number that was no good. Luckily I was home when UPS delivered it. I received the Aavix A11802 Electric 12 Amp Leaf Blower this week. It came with good instructions that were easy to follow. It is a little heavier than my old blower but it came with a shoulder strap to help with the weight. The instruction say if you use a 100' cord it needs to be 14 gauge. I like the variable speed control. Its easy to adjust for better control. It has a powerful motor & says it blows up to 240 MPH air speed. It seems to blow leaves pretty good but it could be a little more powerful. It has a built in cord Read More

          The Freeman P3865CHR 3/8 in. x 65 ft. Compact Retractable Air Hose Reel features a spring-loaded torsion system with an auto-guide rewind that smoothly retracts the air hose without any kinks. The retractable system is perfect for hobbyists and professionals who are looking for a better storage solution. Pull the hose out to the desired length and the positive latching mechanism will automatically lock the hose. When you are done, simply give the hose a short pull and it will gently retract. The air hose is constructed of a lightweight, hybrid PVC polymer that doesn't sacrifice strength and durability, and can withstand sub-zero temperatures from -22 degrees F to 122 degrees F for all-weather use. It features a 3/8 in. internal diameter, brass 1/4 in. NPT fitting and universal coupler, and has an additional 6 ft. lead hose to easily connect to your compressor. This retractable hose reel has 34% more hose than comparable reels, but is the same size or smaller thanks to the compact, impact-resistant housing. Mount the reel to your garage or workshop walls with the included bracket to free up workspace, keeping the hose off the ground to prevent a tripping hazard. The bracket rotates 180 degrees so the housing and hose move with you, ensuring increased maneuverability and efficiency. Backed by Freeman's 3-Year Limited Warranty.

          I just received the Freeman compact retractable air hose reel. The hose is 65' long so its going to work in my 24X50 shop really good. I found a place in my garage that was close to the air compressor and drilled the 4 holes for the bracket. After installing it I tried it out. It is nice that the hose came with air fittings on it & they are the same as i use. The hose came out smoothly but when it came time to roll it back into the unit it didn't work very good. It took me 10 minutes to get the hose to go back in. Hopefully it just needs to be broke in? The bracket and hose reel is made out of plastic & I'm not sure how long it's going to last.
          Pros: nice fittings on hose
          Cons: Not Durable, made of plastic, hose won't retract all the time, too much flex on unit when pulling hose out.

          I'm so excited to get the 3000-PSI 2.3-GPM Honda Gas Pressure Washer. I had to wait a few days for it to warm up outside to try it out. It was boxed up pretty good & arrived with no damage. It came with instructions to put it together. I like that the handle is easy to install & remove. With the large 12" wheels it makes it easy move around the yard. It was nice that a container with engine oil came with it. The 5-in-1 Change-over Nozzle makes it easy to change spray patterns. The 35 foot hose that came with it will not come uncoiled properly so I had to give it a 4 star rating.. Maybe it will be better when the weather warms up.

          I received my Capri super thin open end wrench set today. It looks like a nice set of wrenches. The chrome finish looks awesome. I sure like having large sized marking on them so there easy to see the sizes. The ultra low profile will let me get into tight spots. With the 15 degree angled open end sure willa ke them work better. I hope they hold up when using them. I like the holder that the wrenches can in. There is a limited lifetime warranty on them. I would have gave these a better rating if the warranty was better.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Light Weight
          Cons: warranty
