          Gorilla Shipping Tape is thicker, tougher and wider. Keeping packages secure now takes just 1 strip. The smooth, quiet, ultra thick tape is easy to cut and apply, and holds for as long as needed.

          One more great product from Gorilla, the Gorilla Carts 4 cu. ft. changes one view of using a Wheelbarrows and I have one of those large two style barrows. So here we have cart that will hold 600 lbs., which is sizable to say the lease. Now I can handle that in the wheelbarrow ok, but only in limited loads. So we loaded up the 1st load a simply pulled (rolled) over to where we were dumping and it even dumped easier than having to left the barrow after pushing and holding up the load. Next we turned it over to the wife, who over the next day or so made about 12 more trips and she can't handle the wheelbarrow even with small loads.

          My use may have been limited to this point, but it does not take a hit on the head for me to see a great tool. Building our deck we had a few odd angles to mate up, so by using the zero function after finding an angles and a straight to open it out flat or close it, we got our angles. Just one way out of many as you could start at a 90* angle, zero it and find an angle from there.

          'Contractor-grade inflatable air wedge for window, door and cabinet installations. It replaces damaging pry bars and wooden shims.' 'Certified by SGS for a 500 lbs. load rating that safely handles full size installations with just a single installer, saving time and labor costs.'
          That's all the official stuff, the short of it is, these type of pump up lift pads are indispensable as a shim for aligning doors, lifting appliances during installing them for leveling step or if you can thinks of a time where you used a prybar this could be used. Place, one hand pump bulb to inflate and a simply pressure release, be it yard, home or auto repair.

          I purchased this model trimmer and on the same day a 40 volt blower. When I opened the boxes to charge the batteries I noticed both batteries and the chargers are different. one is a 3ah and the other is a 4ah. I wanted to interchange them and continue to add on other implements. Are they interchangeable?
