          Bosch Radios deliver high performance and lasting reliability. The PB180 18 V Compact Radio offers the lightest weight, most compact 18 V radio on the market. The 5-watt neodymium speakers provide great sound in the same durable "package" that the pros have come to expect from Bosch products. At only 4.1 lbs, it is one of the lightest jobsite radios available. Additionally, the backlit display feature with fuel gauge increases visibility and shows how much battery power is left. The PB180 has superior performance with two days of run time using a 4.0Ah battery.

          One of the hardest parts about construction is weight, Everything is big, bulky and heavy, Anytime I can cut weight out of my tool load I'm happy to do it. This radio is compact, lightweight but has tons of sound. Plenty loud to be heard on a jobsite over the other sounds of saws and drills, hammers, nailers, etc. The sound quality is also great, sounds just as good if not better than my home stereo unit, Its amazing that so much sound can come out of such a small lightweight box.
          It has a jack for my phone so I can put on an internet radio station and listen to music for hours on end. I bought a velcro strap for it so I can hang it up just about anywhere. Also runs on 110Volt or 18 volt

          It's a quality product made by a quality company known for their tools.

          I’ve had a radio in my bathroom for years, to listen to the game, music, etc…. With all the moisture they don’t last too long. This is a great product that doesn’t take up any additional counter space and I don’t have to worry about buying new radios. I previously had a fan in the bathroom so installation was quick and easy, taking less than an hour. All I had to do was turn off the fan line in the breaker box. Unscrew the old fan, screw in the new, rewire and done. A novice could do this project easily.

          Years ago I finished our basement. I had left a small room to be finished later on as a bathroom. Finally getting the time to finish it, I saw this shower. It’s big enough to take a shower in, but small enough to fit in the space I had left. Installation was quick and easy. It’s made out of a strong abs material and is ridgid and solid, Has a nice finish and looks like it will be easy to clean and last for years. I have another bathroom project coming up and would definitely buy any one of the company’s products. Thanks for making a quality product.

          What a great/handy tool. Comes with a belt loop carrying case. I finally got to use this the other day. Had to go to a friend’s house to look at her leaking shower valve. All I took with me was this tool. The valve was leaking. Using the tool I then changed the washers and valve seats. Just to be sure, I wanted to check and make sure none of the solder joints were leaking. I used the saw on the tool to easily cut out the drywall in the closet behind the valve, then used the built-in flashlight to see if there were any leaks, (there were none).
          This is a great tool, you can wear it on your regular belt and use it for many things with the included straight and Phillips head screwdrivers, saw,

          This is a great tool, you can wear it on your regular belt and use it for many things with the included straight and Phillips head screwdrivers, saw, flashlight, faucet seat wrenches assorted knife blades and plastic pipe cutters. The handles have a very comfortable grip and make it easy to use.

          The Havahart Spray Away Elite II - Animal Repellent Motion Detector Sprinkler provides an innovative, humane way to keep unwanted animals out of any part of your yard and garden. With its new and improved design, the Elite II is stronger than ever and even more capable of withstanding the elements.

The Havahart Spray Away Elite II will actually condition your unwanted animals to find lunch elsewhere. Best of all, Spray Away Elite II is hose-free and wireless making it portable and discrete. In this way, Spray Away Elite II gives you the flexibility to protect any area from nuisance animals regardless of proximity to a water or power source. And Spray Away Elite II charges through solar panels located on the top of the unit - so you never have to worry about replacing batteries. Spray Away Elite II is powerful enough to protect up to 1,900 sq. ft. while detecting motion 35 ft. in front of the unit. The versatile unit detects animals of all sizes, and the sprinkler can be set to cover shorter or longer distances.

          For the last 3 years, I have been trying to grow myself some nice tomatoes… Due to the fact that there are so many new housing developments being built where I live, we are getting a lot of new residents,In my yard, ie: gophers, groundhogs, chipmunks and the occasional deer. I love nature and am an Animal Friendly person, so I went on the web and found every home remedy from moth balls to fox urine to keep the critters out of my garden…. Even tried some humane traps.. Nothing worked.. I certainly didn’t want to poison them, Even tried fencing the tomato's completely in, Including a fence over the top.. They dug almost a foot under the bottom of it to get in..

Nothing worked.. I certainly didn’t want to poison them, Even tried fencing the tomato's completely in, Including a fence over the top.. They dug almost a foot under the bottom of it to get in.. Last year they got over 200 string beans in one night.
          I saw the Havahart Spray Away online,, A safe and Humane deterrent, that uses a blast of water to remove unwanted pests. I read thru the page of directions, sounded too good to be true. I unpacked and assembled it. ( you just have to screw the sprinkler head on with the included wrench) Took it outside and filled it with water. Set the area to cover. (VERY EASY) There is also a sensitivity control that can be set to ultra-sensitive for small pests to high for large animals such as deer
          At that time, of my 7 tomato plants, one had all the leaves chewed off it, another had half the leaves chewed off. Its been 3 weeks now and there has been no further damage, All the leaves have grown back on both of them now. I finally have the answer and will actually be able to enjoy a fresh tomato salad with my dinner FINALLY !!!!! It also keeps the neighborhood cats from using my yard as a litterbox.
          The beauty of this unit is its completely self-contained. You fill it with water, It comes pre charged so you can use it right out of the box anywhere on your property and it charges in the sun, no electricity required, You can put it in the middle of the desert and it will work.
          This is a truly fantastic product, No Electric, No Pesticides, No traps, Self-contained, Covers 1900 sq. feet. That’s a garden almost 40 feet wide by 50 feet long. Thanks to the folks at Havahart for a truly unique and useful product. Absolutely worth the money, built extremely solid and will last a long time.

          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.
