This lightweight aluminum scoop is perfect for moving and scooping grain, seed, feed, fertilizers and other granulated materials. It's also a useful and versatile garden tool sturdy enough for general clean-up or for moving mulch, sand or soil.

          One more great tool from 'Razor-Back' added to my tool shed, lightweight and perfectly balanced for moving and scooping, well the sky the limit here. Our main use is for the tons of Pine Needles we pile up during the year from all the trees here in the northwest, tons of them. Being of aluminum for the blade and the hardwood handle we can leave it in a handy area without the corrosion. the "'D-grip' handle provides leverage and control and what helps make this a ture 'Razor-Back' Great. Add one to your tool collection, you won't be sorry.
          Pros: Durable, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Multi Use, Strong

          Right to it, here a 5ml (6ml in fingers) that pass my test as I normally ware M-L size, but have some task I need them shin tight. Not only did they pull on without ripping open in the palm, I finished my task and off they came all in one piece. "Premium, industrial-grade gloves are more than 50% thicker than standard nitrile, for added durability." Simply stated and I whole heartily agree with there textured fingertips that gripped even wet, makes for a tough and sensitive glove. They comply with FDA Regulations for Food Contact so cutting those hot peppers are fair game, but here not for medical use. Chemical resistance for a variety of industries use's.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, Sturdy

          Native Soil is a natural fertilizer made from nutrient-rich organic waste products that are sustainably-sourced and sold in the United States. A unique blend of powdered algae and kelp, dehydrated beer grains, sterilized municipal waste and food scraps creates a high quality, sustainable product that improves your soil and helps your plants really pop. Plants need a handful of specific nutrients to thrive things like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfur. While most fertilizers provide these basic nutrients, Native Soil goes even further to provide organic matter and carbon. Its a synthetic-free, all-in-1 solution for a bountiful yield, week-after-week of the entire growing season. USES: Fertilize new and existing plants, mix into your soil as a conditioner, mix into your compost or run it through your hydroponic system (drip irrigation is not recommended unless you have a good filter). Your tomatoes, fruit trees, flowers, hemp and grasses will bloom longer, stronger and with superior flavor.

          As far being a " GREEN' product we give this as an excellent quality mark. And as winter sets in here in the northwest the fall feeding of our potted plants is upon us and come spring we see healthier plants based on the 'Analysis' ratios and past experience with all natural (organic) products.

          How many amps does this fixture draw?

          I am trying to buy an extension cord to run three of these fixtures, and want to get one that is heavy-duty enough to safely run them with. 2 tubes @ 40W each multiplied by three fixtures equals 240 Watts, but extension cords seem to be measured in Amps as well. Checking the Lithonia site did not turn up any more detailed specs than the Home Depot site, either! Any electrical gurus out there that can answer this?

          Answer: 
          Well, unless I forgotten my math, Watts/volts=amps. One 40 watt T-12 at 120 volts = 0,33 amps times two .66 amps.
          Do the same for 32 watts T-12.
          You can find the charts or calculator's online, type in "watts to amps" or amps to volts. Most of these site will many difference calculators to do the math or list the formulas.
          That's it in a nut shell.

          Answer: 
          Yes, bleach should have no effect on the sprayer itself. In fact, you could spray anything but, corrosives type liquids that effect the tank, hose/tubing, wand and pump.
