Darn lawyers! Originally, we called this amazing new device the 8-In-1 Blower Vacuum Mulcher Paperweight Personal-Self-Defense-Weapon Anti-Yapping-Dog-Apparatus Confetti-Storm-Maker Modern-Art-Piece. We had this great ad all designed – it pictured a typical family gathering set in a typical suburban backyard—a set of divorced parents with their new spouses, step children and birth children—each member holding the new device and performing one of the eight functions. The youngest child, a preschooler, is made up like Andy Warhol and is holding up the device next to a can of Campbell’s soup. His quote bubble reads “I had a lot of dates but I decided to stay home and dye my eyebrows.” Everyone in the ad is laughing at the comment, including the social worker who’s checking in on the family.
Where was I? Oh yeah, darn lawyers! Everyone here loved the ad until it found its way to the legal department… All of a sudden, there were “issues” with five of the eight functions, and did we have the rights to include a can of Campbell’s soup in the ad and what did a child imitating Andy Warhol have to do with selling this incredible new device from Harbor Freight Tools? As if they weren’t involved enough, the lawyers also questioned whether the social worker in the ad was sending the wrong message. They secured red pens and started drawing lines through stuff. They crossed out five functions, the social worker and all the family members including the mini-Warhol. What we were left with was a great product with three solid functions—the 3-In-1 Electric Blower Vacuum Mulcher (item #: 62337).
With its three legally approved functions, this baby is awesome! The efficient leaf blower converts to a vacuum with the flip of a switch. In vacuum mode, you can capture leaves, shred and bag them for mulch. Features include two speed settings for big or small jobs, a 12:1 mulch ratio and a lightweight balanced design. Accessories include a blower tube, mulcher tubes, concentrator nozzle and collection bag. Available at any one of Harbor Freight’s 500+ stores, the Portland® 3-In-1 Electric Blower Vacuum Mulcher will definitely become your go-to for yard work! And hey, if you happen to weigh down a stack of papers with it or whip up a confetti storm, not even those darn lawyers can stop you, though you will have effectively rendered your warranty null and void…
