          Get rid of messy snow while it's fresh with the Snow Joe iON single-stage snow blower. Whether snow is accumulated on a driveway or walkway the cleanup with this blower is fast as it has a 40-Volt lithium-ion battery system and delivers up to 50 minutes of whisper-quiet run time with zero carbon emissions for cleaner air. The 2 rubber-tipped steel blades cut a swath 18 in. wide by 8 in. deep, clearing up to 2,450 sq. ft. per hour without any surface damage and the 180° adjustable discharge chute allows you to throw snow up to 20 ft. away in the direction you want it to go. Control the height of the snow stream by simply adjusting the chute deflector too. Best of all there is no oil and gas to mix or any costly tune-ups needed just plug in the Snow Joe iON and start clearing instantly.

          I was a little skeptical when the package arrived, It was about a 5 minute assembly and took a little less than 2 hours to fully charge the battery. The hardest part was waiting for it to snow. Snow finally came, The machine is incredible.... There are many plusses and one flaw which can be easily corrected. Run time was about 45 minutes, I had plenty of time to do my driveway which is 2 cars wide and 2 cars deep. The rubber blade cleans close to the ground leaving no snow for ice to build up on. It also cleans my Paver sidewald well, which is almost impossible to do with a shovel because it keeps getting caught on the pavers. This did it great and clean. Its QUIET !!! incredibly quiet, Read More

It also cleans my Paver sidewald well, which is almost impossible to do with a shovel because it keeps getting caught on the pavers. This did it great and clean. Its QUIET !!! incredibly quiet, Anytime I can cut irritating noise out of my life is a plus. Someone can walk beside you and you can still have a conversation at normal voice levels. Its Powerful, It threw the snow over the full length of a car, as far as 25 feet. I used it again 2 days ago, we had a 9 inch snowstorm and the unit had plenty of power and duration to clean the entire driveway. Also comes with a great LED headlight that provides plenty of light. And the handle folds for easy storage.
          Heres the only minus about it, The snow discharge chute doesnt stay locked into place. After I used it again I replaced the attachments they had with nylon wing nuts and bolts.
          In Summary: This unit is Incredible, Has plenty of power, Will easily remove the snow,(including where the town plow closed your driveway) and is a quality built machine that looks like it will last forever..... Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Powerful, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Small Turn Radius, Easy to Store, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, cleans close to the ground

          A good product, I have a 2003 Ford pickup in great shape, One of the problems though is its starting to get noisier inside. I thought I’d pick up a few cans of this and give it a shot. I power washed the bottom of the truck best as I could, then blew it off with my leaf blower. The spray can must be well shaken, It applies easily and the cool thing is that the can sprays at any angle. I could cover the bottom of the cab with one can, which from the looks would have been good enough for rust protection, But I wanted to try and cut down some of the road noise, So I applied a total of three cans.

Took it for a ride and it actually made a significant difference in the amount of noise inside. I was very pleased with the product.
          • It is an oil based product, so be careful of overspray Must be cleaned off with turpentine, mineral spirits, etc, right away
          • Dries Fast…to the touch about 20 minutes
          • 1 can gave a decent coverage of my ford ranger king cab
          • Any-angle spray nozzle
          • Used 3 cans for total and full coverage for a much quieter ride
          • Resists rust and corrosion

          I couldn’t have found this item at a better time. After 40 years my current homeowner’s insurance company decided I needed a railing on only one end of my front porch, This fit the bill exactly. I was able to assemble, cut, drill and install in less than 2 hours. Once installed I had a solid well-built railing that matched fairly well to what the rest of the porch had, and was approved by my homeowners insurance for safety and at an economical price….. I didn’t want to order 2 when I got this because I wanted to see how it would look and work out, I will be ordering another to match for the other end of the porch.

          This meter is all you need for the DIY'er or shop. It comes built into a sturdy hard casing that should take years of abuse. Large buttons, dial and display that I can read without my glasses, . It measures AC and DC volts, resistance and DC current as well as an audible continuity checker by using the diode tester which can help you check for complete circuits.

          HOME-FLEX Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing or CSST is great for installation of gas appliances. CSST easily snakes into attic and basements areas, around corners and bends, and through walls. Much easier to work than steel pipe, uses fewer fittings, and weighs a lot less too. Certification through manufacturer is recommended before installing CSST. Color: Yellow.

          This is the first time I’ve used this in place of steel pipe. It’s clean, easy to handle, snakes easily, flexes around corners well and is easy to see after installation. I used it to install a tankless water heater. Just drilled my holes and snaked it thru, There was no cutting, sizing and fitting nipples, Just put a connector on each end and you’re done, you don’t need to buy additional fittings. If you’ve worked with black pipe before you will be amazed at the time savings as well as keeping your hands cleaner and making it easier to work. A great and quality made product.

          A gentle electric radiant heat system designed specifically for dry installation under floating wood and laminate floors. A low profile, line voltage system, it features gradual warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film. Installed easily over a subfloor or over an acoustic/insulating underlayment as part of the overall floor assembly, it uses just 12-Watt per square foot to gently raise the temperature of the floor, conforming to the warranty requirements of many floating floors. The system, which sports an impressive 99% efficiency, includes temperature limiting properties so the film does not overheat. Its available in four convenient rollout mat sizes that will accommodate most any layout. Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.

          Answer: 
          the heater itself does not have a built in GFCI. Your power source that's feeding it, whether your wiring it to an existing circuit or installing a new line should either have a GFCI breaker installed on it or most bathrooms are now required by code to have GFCI receptacles in them and you can safely take power from that if the circuit is not already overloaded, If you don't have GFCI in your bathroom Read More

          Yes they will, the 2 cameras dont draw a lot of amps/volts, there should be more than ample power on a cigarette lighter circuit. You could probably run 5 or 6 of them off the same plugs if you wanted to for some reason.

          not unless you put in a 110 volt ac converter, then you would have to calculate the wattage and see if your system had enough power to run it.
