          This tamper is ideal for tamping asphalt, gravel, stone, and dirt. The high quality ash handle is flexible and durable. The heavy 10.6 lb. steel head makes a great tool for heavy duty construction, industrial, and commercial applications.

          Right away I took notice of the wedge holding the handle in place and solved the problem before it began. I drilled a hole in each side of the metal into the bottom of the wood handle and ran a short deck screw into it and have had zero problems so far, though I wish the clearcoat on the handle hadn't peeled off prematurely.
          Works good though if you put a little work into it.

          I've had my wheelbarrow for about two years, though it came with a regular steel rim and not the fancy one in the picture. It developed a few rust spots quickly and the paint faded pretty quickly, probably the same issue, but other than that it's been great. Especially the flat-free tire. A must-have for both professionals and beginners.

          Even though the other reviwes are negative I have nothing bad to say about this mixer. I have two and most recently used one to mix 70 bags of type S mortar with zero problems. In fact I like it better than other traditional paddles that are cheap and brittle (this one is steel) and it doesn't shave pieces of the bucket into the mix either.

          RYOBI RYOBI 14-Amp 10 in. Compound Miter Saw
          RYOBI RYOBI 14-Amp 10 in. Compound Miter Saw
          The Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Miter Saw is built around a heavy-duty motor that delivers up to 5,000 RPM, making it great for a host of tough cutting applications. Its carbide-tipped blade changes with a single wrench, and a dual-view bevel scale helps provide a clear line of sight from either side. It mitres to 45 degrees left and right with stops at 0-, 15-, 22.5-, 30- and 45 degrees, and it is equipped with an electric brake that halts the blade in seconds for added safety. A horizontal D-handle improves comfort and control.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          One of the main problems I have with this saw is that it kicks really hard when I turn it on, and even if I grip the piece I'm cutting it'll shift too much on the fence. I never use this saw for trimwork or finish carpentry.
          Also the play in the saw makes for sloppy cuts. Cheap and expensive blades don't correct this issue. I only use this saw for rough carpentry and even then I'd rather use my sliding Hitachi with a soft-start. I'm planning on either selling this saw or putting a dry cut diamond blade on and using it for cutting brick until it dies.
          I would not recommend this to a professional, and even a hobbyist can get a similarly poorly-made saw for cheaper and save money.

          This newly designed RIDGID 12 Gal. High Performance Wet/Dry Vacuum with Auto Detail Kit is designed for Pros and DIYers who want a traditionally styled, medium sized vacuum that delivers the powerful performance and rugged durability required for job site clean-up. Its 5 peak HP motor delivers the suction power necessary to handle tough clean-up chores. This vacuum's 12 Gal. drum size results in a more compact design that requires less storage space on a service truck, in the shop, or in the garage. However, it still offers the capacity to handle large messes. Also includes auto cleaning detail kit with convenient tools for vacuums. Color: Oranges/Peaches.

          I've had this shop vac for several years now and have beat it to death but it just takes everything I throw at it and laughs. I just finished up a 3000 sqft raking and repointing job on 100 year old brick and literally sucked up thousands of pounds of old lime/sand mortar and dust and ran it for hours on end every single day and it never gave me a single problem. Before that I've used it from everything from sawdust and shavings to sand to grinding stucco. I highly recommed it for anybody from a hobbyist to a professional using it every day, and if this one breaks I'll definately get the same exact one if Ridgid still makes them.

          Remember when you could slice through cement. The WEN 7-1/4 in. Professional Fiber Cement Saw Blade provides reliable and accurate performance, maintaining its straight shape and sharp edges for longer than the competition. The polycrystalline diamond-tipped circular saw blade slices through fiber cement and laminate flooring with ease. The 5/8 in. arbor (15.88 mm) allows for compatibility with the majority of 7-1/4 in. circular saws, jobsite saws and track saws on the market. Heat expansion slots help the blade expand and contract as needed to provide maximum accuracy across a wide range of cutting conditions. Our unique PCD formula fights off potential wear and tear caused by highly abrasive fiber cement board, making your blade last. This lightweight, ultra-thin blade provides maximum efficiency during operation, leaving behind a kerf a mere 1/15 of an inch wide (1.8 mm). Its time to get reliable and powerful performance with a WEN Saw Blade. Remember when you had a blade that lasted. Remember WEN.
