          Forget pulling still-damp loads from the dryerLG's ultra large capacity dryer uses the moisture-sensing technology of Sensor Dry to help ensure even large loads are always dry at the end of the cycle. Plus, the Aluminized Alloy Steel Drum has toughness and an attractive finish that will last for years. And, stay ahead of the cycle and access key LG dryer features remotely with SmartThinQ technology. Color: Graphite Steel.

          Having an older LG dryer that had a dial that simply clicked as it was turned and to point to a static display that easily readable was so easy to use. You did not require and be rocker scientist to figure out what position it was to be lined up with. This dryer with so many different settings that the consumer can utilize are mind boggling to say the least. However, after a few uses, I started to get the hang of it, unlike my wife who caught on within a few minutes on how to and what to do for a perfect cycle. In my defense, I own and run a housing maintenance business and am a hands-on guy and this new way of technology can and is confusing. Even the smart phone she downloaded the app for this dryer and washer had me thinking that I really do not have a clue.
          Back to the LG dryer: Whereas I just press the power and then start, she looks at the settings and within a few seconds has it worked out just how she wants her laundry dried.
          Having said that, the drying cycle is the best I have seen. The old LG dryer just before we acquired this one had just a little amount of lint in the removable filter, but after this cycle, the filter was at least 100% more even though the towels had been in the same time frame between washes. The glass door was only warm at the touch at the finish.
          The sensor having detected that the laundry is now dry and ready to remove is exceptional and truly spot on. The dryer is in a class of its own. Beautiful design and as the wife said, technology at its best for a dryer. Yeah, whatever!

          This washer from LG (Lucky Goldstar?) was delivered and installed by the Home Depot contactors. Before I add my thoughts on the reliable inner workings of it, may I say that they are professional installers that know what they are doing. They even put the washer through a quick cycle and waited until we were happy that all was good. It was the same with the dryer and even added an extension to the existing dryer outlet to which they were not responsible for.
          This washer to state that it is quiet in its performing cycle is an understatement. It far more efficient than our old washer, and even though we were happy with those results, we now accept that this new one cleans our laundry more

          This washer from LG (Lucky Goldstar?) was delivered and installed by the Home Depot contactors.

It was the same with the dryer and even added an extension to the existing dryer outlet to which they were not responsible for.
          This washer to state that it is quiet in its performing cycle is an understatement. It far more efficient than our old washer, and even though we were happy with those results, we now accept that this new one cleans our laundry more proficiently with excellent results. The spin cycle works to perfection. There are several different wash cycles, ten in all, and all are perfect to use for many of the washed that you will prefer to use.
          Although the control panel is a little hard to see, it does not in any way take away the absolute proficiency of the workings.
          Funny story concerning the app that my wife had downloaded to her smart phone. As we were both going to be at work, my wife told me that she was going to try the app to start the washer about an hour before leaving the hospital where she is employed. Her elderly mother was staying with us for a few days and was still in bed when we left. When my wife returned home, her mother was nowhere to be found. Then a concerned neighbor told her that she was at their house and was refusing to come back because we have a ghost in the house that had somehow started the washer, complete with the laundry.
          Anyhow, summing up, it really is a superb piece of modern technology

          The headboard has a thin cloth backing at the rear which was ripped in several place when delivered. It conveniently having a zipper; I carefully unzipped the cover in order to attempt a repair of the ripped cloth. I was not overly concerned as the front of the headboard was in perfect order and I really did not wish to return it, but the nails used in securing the trim are protruding through the trim at least ½ of an inch into the frame area with very sharp points to them. So, for any reason you wish to remove the backing cloth, be aware of the pointy sharp nails.
          I am convinced that this issue was caused during the shipping process and not before it left the depot as the packing box does have some ragged holes. The whole bed is a really excellent one and it was just a shame that this issue had to happen.

          The Aubrey double robe hook is straight forward to install and is perfect for the bathroom. Rust proof, they easily hold both bath robes and or towels. Good solid feel to this set. The brushed nickel embraces the other bathroom accessories from the Delta range, not that I particularly care, but the wife does and I guess that’s what matters best…right! It has has style, look excellent and more importantly, They are made with precision. All hardware is supplied. An excellent accessory for the bathroom or a bedroom.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          The MILWAUKEE M12 3XL heated AXIS Layering System with GRIDIRON Work Shell s are designed to protect users from the coldest weather conditions on the job site. Powered by M12 REDLITHIUM Battery Technology, the AXIS heated work jackets use carbon fiber heating elements to create and distribute heat to the chest, back and shoulders. A one-touch LED controller heats up the battery heated jacket to three heat settings, creating a comfortable heat for any environment or weather. The heated jacket has a new Quick-Heat function that allows users to feel heat three times faster than our previous jackets and market competitors. Like all of Milwaukee's other products, these jackets are built strong to last long with new AXIS Ripstop Polyester providing a lightweight, compressible design that can be used as an inner layer or mid-layer jacket and protects users from wind and water to survive the elements. Paired with M12 Heat On Demand, the optimal insulation in both jackets provides users with ultimate warmth. GRIDIRON Ripstop Polyester delivers durability without sacrificing mobility so users can survive the job site. The heated coats are available in black. These s come with the M12 battery heated jacket and GRIDIRON work shell, one M12 REDLITHIUM CP2.0 battery and an M12 compact charger and power source.

          What I really like about this heated jacket from the Milwaukee range.
          The battery sits more on the hip rather than at the back, which used to cause some annoyance when sitting down. The zipper is first class and sturdy. The inner jacket wears well and fits well and is made using excellent materials plus it has two pockets that zip up, albeit that one is used to hold the battery.
          The outer jacket has a hood and also the zipper which in the same high class as the inner jacket.
          The only thing that I believe can and should addressed are the two pockets in the outer shell. They are not zippered and twice now I fortunately noticed my attachable camera lens that was on the ground having Read More

          The only thing that I believe can and should addressed are the two pockets in the outer shell. They are not zippered and twice now I fortunately noticed my attachable camera lens that was on the ground having slipped out of the unzippered pocket whilst I was laying on the ground taking photos of bears before they go to bed for the winter. Yes, my fault entirely but a zipped pocket would have been ideal.
          We all would like the batteries for this jacket to be the same power output but they are not. On a fully charged M12 battery, it lasted 45 minutes on high and yet the other one of the same was still on high at almost 2 hours. My third one an hour and 20 minutes and yes, they were all brand-new Milwaukee batteries.
          So, summing up, these two jackets of the same set are superb and are worth their cost.
          Any more gripes/ Only one and that is the small box that supplied with this kit was empty. No charger for the outlet and no USB cable.

          Okay....I figured it would require a junction box that was recessed into the ceiling in order for it to be hard wired ,but how does the light connect to the junction box. For example, does the light come apart so the base of it can be fixed to the junction box?

          Answer: 
          Thanks for your question regarding the maximum height that this machine will successfully cut. Although I have used mine after a vacation and found that the grass on my lawn had grown to a height of 6 inches, it did work fine, albeit slow going on the highest setting and then finished by lowering the wheels and going over it again.

          Thanks for your question regarding the maximum height that this machine will successfully cut. Although I have used mine after a vacation and found that the grass on my lawn had grown to a height of 6 inches, it did work fine, albeit slow going on the highest setting and then finished by lowering the wheels and going over it again. At all other times I cut the lawn when the height of the grass is around the 3 inch mark and find that this level makes for a perfect finish. But what is the maximum height? This electric grass cutter does have some exceptional power but has been designed for small lawns and not the large rough terrain that my back yard has. Hope this assists you. Read Less

          Answer: 
          I can only state what I did and that worked perfectly, although only a small numbered sign on to a concrete post. I put a thin layer on one side of my numbered wood piece and another layer on the side of the post and then secured it with a hand held vice and left it in situ' for an hour. That was a few weeks back and despite rain and snow it still holds fast. Hope this assists you.
