          Comfort, relaxing rocking chair for your porch, patio, lawn or garden. It was very quick and easy to assembly with everything but the Philips screwdriver and rubber mal. come with it. Made of 'Acacia wood' clean look black finish and matching wood (finished too) plugs to finish it off filling those screw holds. Has a nice wide seat that fits ones bottom and high back - rocker is also well balanced to just sit and relax or rock.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Easy to Clean, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great

          If you have a large yard or need extra run time, the RYOBI 40-Volt 6.0 Ah high capacity battery is the perfect addition to your RYOBI 40-Volt collection. This 6.0 Ah battery lasts 2X longer than the standard RYOBI 40-Volt high capacity battery while delivering the same fade-free power and performance. All RYOBI 40-Volt batteries come with an on-board battery life indicator for user convenience and over-molded edges for impact protection. This battery works with all RYOBI 40-Volt tools and chargers. All backed by a 3-year warranty, there's never been a better time to consider cordless.

          Now this ladder has that extra step that makes my household task all that much easier, fact is in some places we can't use that top step where we had to reach from the top step on our old one. Makes all the difference to be at the working level and not having to reach, or stretching on one foot. We keep it store behind a bedroom door, fits perfectly and it's always right there for easy use anytime.
          There you have it a quick list of those great features and how great of a height (that extra reach) it has and it's easy to store.

          Gear Wrench work seats and stools let you work comfortably at a level that gives you the maximum access and leverage, whether working at low heights or doing bench work. A rolling seat and a high stool are both available to suit your shop environment needs and personal working style. Both are air shock height adjustable and made to stand up to the hard demands of auto shop or industrial plant environments.

          Super work seat/stool comes what I call 'Semi-"Fully" Assy' that's because you only have to fit the adjuster tube into the base and set the seat on top and it's ready to use, even the trays are in the base ready for use. The seat is very comfortable and with it being adjustable it will meet you every need. the trays in the base do come out and the magnet 'bit small' helps hold it in place and nuts/bolts also are held well. You can also remove the tray(s) and with the magnet place it anywhere metal is to collect/hold those same nuts and bolts.

I have a high end stool (no trays) nice roller and all that, but I find it harder to use as you have to sit balanced on it or your off centered, otherwise it's much the same. Here's the big difference and think you find it the same, the seat is a seat - so you sit fully centered and comfortable no matter what and to move (roll) across the floor it's the same - no more feeling un-balanced. Much like a good office chair.
          Features: 'Powder coated metal frame for long-lasting durability, Seat swivels 360° for extra mobility, Sd solvent resistant rubber tractor style seat. Air shock adjustable seat to suit any need, Seated height adjusts from 18 in. to 22 in. - 300 lbs. capacity -Heavy-duty 3-1/2 in. casters with 5 magnetic parts trays in the base for convenient storage'
          Top of that list - 'Easy 3-piece set up'

          Have to give this one my high rating, the 'ProFlex380 Standard Kneeling Pad' does provides comfort for kneeling situations. It's the best I've ever used to date for padding the knees and it's of good size that lets you move without having to readjust (move) the pad every time. A full 1 inch thick of , what I call, dense foam for firm but comfortable support (padding).
          There you have it, the short and sweat of it. Great Pad.

          The FLEXVOLT 12.0 Ah Battery provides up to 8X runtime in 20-Volt MAX and delivers ultimate power in 60-Volt MAX and 120-Volt MAX cordless tools. It changes voltage when you go from 20-Volt MAX to 60-Volt MAX tools. Lithium Ion technology delivers performance in the same size as our 9.0 Ah Battery, so it is more powerful in as compact a package as possible. It also includes a built-in LED Fuel Gauge for instant charge status, and is compatible with all 20-Volt MAX tools and chargers.

          Answer: 
          In short, Ah (Amp Hours) is a rating of how long a battery will last before needing recharged, i.e. 6Ah will last 90 minutes in a weed-eater, the same 12 Ah would last twice as long. Take this a simply example as many factors (load, use and condition) play a role.
