          This backpack leaf blower was easy to assemble in about 15 minutes. I charged the battery that starts it overnight so it was all ready to go the next morning. I made sure the fresh gas was well mixed with the right amount of oil according to the owner's manual. After priming the plastic bulb and plugging in the battery I pushed the start button on the trigger assembly once and it wouldn't start. After several attempts like that I thought I might have flooded it, so I gave it a rest for a few minutes, read the owner's manual again and started trying to start it again. It wouldn't start.

Then after reading the owner's manual again I though that maybe instead of pushing the start button one time I should hold it down which it didn't say in the manual. It started right up then. The manual should be updated to say hold the button down until it starts, not just push it in. After that I used it for over 45 minutes and I realized it is the best leaf blower I have every had. The power is incredible. I only used one of the expansion wands of the two it came with. It fits very comfortably with the padding on all the straps and the back. After learning the proper way to start it I had no trouble after that. I also recommend wearing a set of earphones and eye protection glasses as the owners manual says since it is so powerful and loud. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Powerful, electric starter, well padded

          If you are looking for small mums that are ready to bloom in a few weeks these are the ones for you. I was expecting them to be bigger than they are. They arrived in good shape, nice and green and full of buds. They have been watered regularly since then but none have bloomed yet. I was also expecting the "whiskey barrels" they come in to be much better looking than the cheap little plastic ones that they are.
          Pros: Good Shape, healthy
          Cons: Small

          I was hoping this would be a nice little canister vacuum that would be able to take care of the cleanup that would be needed in our small cabin, but it has too many problems that prevent me from using it for that. The hose doesn't connect to the metal vacuum wand in a method that allows it to stay in place. It slides on but there is no locking mechanism to keep it in place so several times as I used it the hose and wand separated. It has two settings for whether carpet or hardwood floor is going to be cleaned. If you select one of them a litle brush extends on the vacuum head .

At the back of the vacuum head are two little wheels but there are none in the front part so once the little brush comes down it is hard to push or pull on either surface. Also, the attachments snap on to the holder which snaps onto the wand. As I tried to use the vacuum those attachments or the snap on piece popped off. Finally the rewind speed of the extension cord pulls the cord in very quickly like a whip. The owners manual has a warning about this that pets or children should not be close by when you push the button. I was not pleased with the quality or the features this unit has. Read Less
          Cons: Difficult to Use, comes apart easily, cord rewind speed too fast

          Effortlessly create a dazzling display with this 7.5 ft. pre-lit LED Swiss Mountain Spruce artificial Christmas tree. It is pre-strung with 2,220 warm white micro LED lights that emit a natural glow. This realistic masterpiece boasts 3,404 PVC and PE branch tips to offer a lifelike appearance. You can easily turn the lights on and off using the included foot pedal. The plugs are located inside of the tree pole, eliminating the confusion of finding and connecting light plugs. You can assemble this gorgeous tree in fewer than 10 minutes, but to make it look as full as possible, you will need to fluff the branches. Fluffing a typical 7.5 ft. tree may take a couple of hours the first time, but the results are well worth the time and effort to bring Christmas spirit to your home.

          When I received this tree I was excited to put it together to see what it was going to look like this holiday season. The assembly is pretty simple since the tree comes in 3 pieces and the stand. Each piece was fairly heavy which to me meant it would be a full tree that would look pretty good. For the stand all you had to do was spread the legs which snapped into place and then put each of the 3 pieces one on top of the other. The middle section had a "2" on it but the others had no marking. The bottom and middle sections have hinged limbs that were tied up with twine type stings. When you put the bottom section into the stand the hinged limb sections fall down into place. However, what i Read More
          When I received this tree I was excited to put it together to see what it was going to look like this holiday season. The assembly is pretty simple since the tree comes in 3 pieces and the stand. Each piece was fairly heavy which to me meant it would be a full tree that would look pretty good. For the stand all you had to do was spread the legs which snapped into place and then put each of the 3 pieces one on top of the other. The middle section had a "2" on it but the others had no marking. The bottom and middle sections have hinged limbs that were tied up with twine type stings. When you put the bottom section into the stand the hinged limb sections fall down into place. However, what i noticed was that the wires for the lights some times got caught on one of the lower or upper limbs so you had to be careful to undo the wiring from the limb so that you didn't damage the wiring for the lights. The center section then plugged into the center rod and the hinged limbs then fall down sometimes again the wires got hung up on other limbs. The top section doesn't have hinged limbs they just needed to be spread out to look good. What I was not too impressed with and my wife didn't like either is the fake plastic look that the end of each limb has to make it look like a spruce tree. It's not even the same color as the rest of the tree and all of them are basically the same shape and are not spreadable. The plug in wire comes out from the bottom section and has a foot switch on it so you can easily turn it on and off without having to plug it in each time. . The lights are LED and they have a nice glowing look like old fashion lights. I was pleased with the way the tree looked until I realized that three of the larger limbs were not working. I did some trouble shooting on the wires and determined which string was not working. I unplugged that junction and plugged the lights into another junction and they worked fine. So the problem as not in the string itself but in the wiring that proves power to that string which is not fixable. I called customer service to determine how to resolve the problem and they recommended I return the tree to the store. With those lights out in the middle of the tree we cannot use this tree for the holidays. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install
          Cons: fake looking limbs, lights don't all work

          Boasting two heat settings, the Comfort Zone Portable Heater with Thermostat offers you the ability to tailor your heat output. On brisk evenings spent in your garage, the low setting will help make your space more comfortable. For subzero winter nights, the high setting produces enough heat to keep your space warm. This utility heater is designed with an oversized carrying handle to make it easier to move from room to room. The body stays cool to the touch even when on the high heat setting, so you can safely transport the heater from your garage to your bedroom or bathroom whenever you need a bit of extra heat. Built with safety in mind, this portable heater is loaded with safety features for added peace of mind. Automatic shut-off will cut the power to the heater whenever there is a risk of overheating, while the safety tip-over switch protects against electrical shock and fire if the unit is knocked over. This heater also includes power and caution indicator lights to warn you when the heater is turned on and when there is a possible issue. With an all-metal construction, this rugged utility heater is designed to last for years with the proper care and maintenance. The strong, durable metal will hold up to the regular wear and tear that comes from working in a garage or workshop, so you can enjoy a warm, comfortable setting. With a built-in thermostat, you can easily control the air output to tailor the temperature of your garage or workshop to your preference. Color: Black.

          We assembled the fire pit and are overall pleased with the product. However, there are places, mostly on the sides of the blocks, that the cement is visible as there is no paint. We are interested in getting paint in order to touch up these spots of missing paint. Is there matching paint for this pit that we can get? Thank you!

          In case you forget to charge the battery or you are using it in an area without electricity, can you manually start it?
