          I wanted a lightweight compact blower, something my wife could use. She can't use my plug in model efficiently. Plus that plug in is great for cleaning leaves in the fall but isn't convenient for grass clippings or blowing off the deck.
          This unit is ideal for both and can use any of my many 18 volt Ryobi batteries. The ONE+ Ryobi, battery-tool line makes things so easy for me to switch between jobs and tools and this convenience allows my wife to participate in many of our projects where conventional tools would limit her ability.
          We have many trees that constantly deposit material on our deck. So now the Mrs. can just grab this unit, pop in a battery and clear it in a few minutes.

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Tee intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market.  No tools are required to make a connection.  They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security.  When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe.

          Another great product from "Shark Bite" plumbing products.
          These are the same "push to connect" fittings as Shark Bites brass fittings but in a durable plastic. They have a new feature that they make a click sound when the pipe is inserted, you give the end piece a twist. If the pipe is seated properly it makes a click.
          These will fit all standard 1/2 inch water pipe (copper, PEX and PVC).
          They are fast and reliable, use wherever you would use Shark Bite brass fittings at a much cheaper price without giving up quality.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, audible click lock

          Fantastic product and a fantastic alternative to Shark Bite brass fittings per cost.
          You get the same reliable connection and versatility as the original brass "push to connect" fittings, in a lighter less expensive plastic.
          Just like the originals, these will fit all standard 1/2 inch pipe (copper, PEX and PVC). There is one notable change that these have a twist lock feature that you can hear so you know it's a sealed and seated connection. A tremendous time saver.

          I have many Ryobi 18 volt power tools and a couple extra batteries hopefully will insure I've always got power to spare. I often get on a large project or many projects, using a variety of my Ryobi tools. So having a good supply ensures there's always a charged one on hand.

          I have a couple of these in my home already. However, they are older models and are not compatible with LED bulbs. Since I'm replacing all my faulty bulbs over to LED as the old ones fail, it's time to upgrade to LED compatible dimmers.
          I especially like these dual control switches wherever space is an issue in the receptacle box in a given room. I often install fans and lights in separate locations which can present a problem that may require 2 separate boxes. Wherever wiring allows, I can use this switch in a single box and control separate fan and lights or the fan w/light.

          The 1-Gang 20.5 cu. in. Octagon Electrical Ceiling Box with L-bracket is made of a special high heat resistant engineered plastic material developed especially for fixture support up to 50 lbs. Box includes 1/2 and 3/4 in. knock-outs. UL classified for 2 hour or less fire resistant floor/ceiling assemblies. Not rated for use with ceiling fans.
           

          Is an Romex connector required? Since it's a plastic box.

          Answer: 
          Since these do not have any clamps or clips inside, romex connectors or clips are needed. As you can see in the picture, they have ordinary knock outs to accept 1/2 or 3/4 inch box connectors.

          Answer: 
          These should fit your Cub Cadet. Because many brands of tractors are made by a single company there's no a lot of variation in many of the parts. However, blades can vary in how they mount to your tractor.
          Note the blades center hole is a 6 point star. This star pattern helps keep the blade centered and fits into a depression on the hubs where the blades bolt to the deck underside. But that star isn't

          Answer: 
          It is for the tool. Depending on which size battery you use, will add 1 to 2 pounds. The battery listed is a 4.0 AH battery and weighs less than 2 lbs. But Ryobi also has 3.0 AH and 2.0AH batteries available which weigh less.
