          This is an excellent blade for small to medium pruning jobs. The blade design allows for good bites and quick trim work. I've used these blades many times over the past several years. Diablo products aren't my favorite brand typically. But this particular blade has an excellent track record with me

          SO far this has been a great addition to my Ryobi collection. I began replacing old and worn power tools with Ryobi products with great success. This trimmer has been no exception. Since I have several long life Ryobi batteries I am able to maintain the many yards I care for in my neighborhood without having to replace the battery too often. It has power to spare for most jobs and the string feeder is extremely reliable compared to the many other brands I've owned. Refilling the string is also a snap in under 1 minute. This tool is up for the job at your home and will take down the heaviest of weeds and excess grass. Light weight and very easy to handle.

          Diablo's 3 in. x 21 in. 80-Grit sanding belts include break-through innovations that improve performance, extend sanding life and increase productivity. Featuring a premium zirconium blend, these belts remove material faster than other sanding belts and offer an extra-long sanding life. Clog-SHIELD, Diablo's own blend of grinding agents, reduces loading thus maximizing productivity. The superior grit-to-backing bond, ENDURA-BOND, provides Diablo's belts with longer life and extreme durability.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I haven't been overly impressed with Diablo products though I've noticed some improvements to durability. I would opt for other brands but aren't always available at my HD store and better products from local competitors are priced too high. Your experience may yield better results but for me, sanding belts, paper, saw blades and bits have all been less than satisfactory

          Loctite Epoxy Heavy Duty is a two-part adhesive consisting of an epoxy resin and a hardener. When mixed in equal volumes, resin and hardener react to produce a tough, rigid, high strength bond in 5 minutes for most projects. It can be used as an adhesive for a wide range of materials or as versatile filler for gap bonding, surface repairs and laminating. Loctite Epoxy Heavy Duty does not shrink and is resistant to water and most common solvents. It can be tinted with earth pigments, cement or sand for color matching. It can be sanded and drilled.

          Loctite HD Epoxy is perfect for small quick jobs at an economical price and large volume. I've been using it to repair wood imperfections to repair various wood projects that have gouges cracks and splits. The bottles are much easier to measure out than typical epoxy tubes. I always mix a little more than I think I may need to over fill the areas to be repaired. This allows for some light sanding to level which also roughs the surface and allows it to accept paint much better. Repairs are virtually invisible after painting and don't crack or peel. Fantastic product.

          It's a bit difficult to give a positive review when it comes to paint. I'm extremely happy with it's coverage and the final appearance. Standing the test of time (on a deck) will be the true determination on quality. My main concern will be adhesion since previous products I've used began peeling within a year or 2. However, I've spent extensive time to be sure the surfaces have been prepped properly. If I can get at least 3 years of good service, I'll be satisfied.

          Answer: 
          Battery life will vary for everyone due to usage. But average is about an hour give or take 15 minutes. One key to longer battery life is to turn it off whenever it isn't actually blowing at anything. Some will walk around with it turned on and aren't blowing at anything. They will get much shorter life.

          A little tip should you go with this unit. If you find the battery doesn't run as long as you like, it can use a longer life battery. In other words, it comes with a 2AH battery. 2 AH stands for 2 amp hours. This doesn't mean it will run 2 hours. It is simply a universal rating used for rechargeable batteries and represents optimal conditions in a laboratory. But this model can also use a 3AH battery or even a 4 AH battery. Since I own numerous Ryobi tools, I have several batteries and always have a back up ready to go. I do this because I may not always use a tool long enough to run the battery out. But should I happen to forget to recharge it, the next time it might die on me. So having another battery on hand gets me through. Read Less

          This is an interesting question as mine has never fallen off. Which leads me to a couple possible problems. The first will be to carefully inspect the attachment for vertical cracks. What I mean is cracks that might run along the attachment where it slides onto the tube. If it has a crack, won't fit tight to the blowers main tube.

What I mean is cracks that might run along the attachment where it slides onto the tube. If it has a crack, won't fit tight to the blowers main tube.
          The other thing to check is for proper installation. This tube has a wide cut out on one side that needs to align on center to the 3 ribs embossed on the main tube. Those ribs should be completely centered within that cut out. This is very important because on the opposite side are smaller ribs that fit into indentations on the inside of the extension tube. The smaller ribs basically lock the extension onto the main tube.
          If the extension is cracked you should be able to obtain a replacement for the cracked extension. But it may need to be ordered. Read Less

          This is essentially an impossible question to answer though I would believe it would definitely go on sale some time in the future.
          Typically a product sale is a joint decision between the manufacturer and a specific distributor. Factors that can affect the decision to put an item on sale might include popularity, production and inventory. Another is if an item is seasonal which this is. So let's say a store chain has a lot of a specific seasonal item in stock and the season it's typically used in is coming to a close. It might go on sale.
          However, we are coming into the heart of this products useful season. With that in mind, if a sale is in it's future, would be more likely to occur as we near spring. This allows stores to clear inventories that otherwise would need to be placed in storage for the next season.
          Also, the manufacturer could be considering a model change or upgrade and decide to have a sale to clear old stock before introducing the latest model.
          As you can see, to try and determine when something might go on sale, has many considerations. But as a potential customer, what I might do is, first to keep a close eye on the product. Another would be to check my stores inventory (how many do they have in stock?). And in the case of this product, are we experiencing average snow fall? In my area, snow is a little scarce this year. Snow thrower sales are down. Perhaps (if this is the case in your area and your store has an abundance of stock) might be willing to accept a different amount than the suggested retail price. It never hurts to ask. Read Less
