          The ProFlex 230LTR Leather Knee Pads are built tough with real genuine leather to provide excellent traction and knee protection from fire, slag and sparks. The leather is abrasion-resistant from the toughest work surfaces and wraps over the top of the knee pad for extra durability and a longer life for both your knees and the knee pads, even for jobs that require working on your knees daily. They are the most comfortable leather knee pads made with nitrile rubber (NBR) foam padding that keeps its shape over time and helps avoid common knee injuries. Built slightly wider than traditional knee pads, they deliver added coverage and comfort. The non-slip dual straps easily adjust to most knee/leg sizes and the buckle closure keep the knee pad secured in place all day long without restricting circulation. An anti-odor treatment protects the inner fabric to keep your pads as fresh as the day you bought them. Because they are made with soft leather these are the best work knee pads for construction, flooring and concrete applications. Also, the resistance to heat, fire and abrasion makes for great welding knee pads.

          Now I like this cap, light - but warm versatile/reversible knit that is stretchable and fits well under a hat, hoody or just everyday ware. The fact that one side is not only a 'Hi-vis lime' for added safety be it work or at play is one plus, but the sides themselves can be used for changing the warm effect and comfort. Best plus for me is that I can keep my head covered for warm driving etc., and pull my hood up outside for even more warmth and back again.

          This is not the everyday looking fan, 'distinct profile' in flat white, a 'true design statement'. The blades are made of ABS, and I was impressed with the air movement at six levels. The LED has good output and lights the room nicely. Now the install is straight forward for the bracket, hanger and wiring, one note was that these blades mounted with two screws on top and the blade wraps down and around the mount (1/4) and a screw on the bottom - well mounted. There is both a 12 in. and 40 in. lead wire with connectors, 6 speed full function remote control.

It's easy to empty the canister and the tools will let you get to almost every hard to reach spot in you home. And one big plus for me was the long cord, only had to move it once, compare to twice with my wider vac - 1800sqft @ 66x28 ft.

          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?
