Scott Walker Proclaims Harbor Freight Day in Wisconsin!


Oshkosh and Racine Festivities Include Ribbon Cuttings and Donation of over $2000.00 to Community Rebuilding Charities

Harbor Freight DayHarbor Freight Tools received an official proclamation by Governor Scott Walker of July 8, 2011 as Harbor Freight Tools Day in the State of Wisconsin, the same day two new stores will hold grand openings in the state: Racine, located at 2380 South Green Bay Road, and Oshkosh, at 1620 South Koeller Street.

“In proclaiming Friday, July 8, 2011 Harbor Freight Tools Day in the State of Wisconsin, I welcome their two new stores in Racine and Oshkosh as they join the company’s seven other locations in our state,” said Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. “Having nine Harbor Freight Tools stores in Wisconsin not only brings us new jobs but also offers very affordable tools that help our small business owners, independent contractors and skilled tradespeople continue to do their work and earn a good living in Wisconsin.”

At the grand opening celebrations, Harbor Freight will present Habitat for Humanity of Oshkosh and YouthBuild Racine with donations of more than $2000.00 in much needed tools and supplies to help with their respective community rebuilding projects.

“We’re thrilled to be opening the eighth and ninth Harbor Freight Tools stores in the state of Wisconsin, and honored by Governor Walker’s official proclamation of Harbor Freight Tools Day. Wisconsin has always been a major market for us and we could not be more excited about growing further in the state,” said Eric Smidt, CEO of Harbor Freight Tools. “At Harbor Freight, our customers always find quality tools at ridiculously low prices. In today’s economy, we provide a much-needed alternative to the ‘big box’ retailers that push high-priced brands with minimal attention to customer care.”

Make Your Life Easier with a Foldable Trailer

Whether you’re on the job or having fun, there are dozens of ways to make your life easier with a trailer. But what happens when you don’t have the space for one? Sure, you could park it outside, but just think of how much static you’ll catch from your spouse or neighbor for plunking it in their favorite parking spot or cluttering their view.

When it comes to versatility and flexibility folding trailers have conventional ones beat

That’s where a folding trailer comes in handy. When it comes to versatility, flexibility and maximum convenience, folding trailers have conventional ones beat hands down. Why bother renting a trailer when folding trailers for sale are available? Renting works for those who need a trailer once in a blue moon, but a lot of people soon discover after renting one how useful they can be.

Consider another situation: If you have a car or SUV, some stuff is just impossible to stash inside. In this case a trailer is a must. Even those with a large pickup bed will still at times find the need for a trailer. Unfortunately, a full-size conventional trailer takes up too much space in many driveways or garages.

This is where the Haul-Master 1195 Lb. Capacity 48″ x 96″ Heavy-Duty Foldable Utility Trailer with 12″ Wheels (SKU: 90154) is the king of Heavy-Duty Foldable Utility Trailers. It only takes up 24″ x 63″ of floor space when folded, so it can be stored practically anywhere. But when this trailer is unfolded, it can handle heavy loads up to a whoppin’ 1195 pounds! Add plywood decking (not included) to make yourself a 48″ x 96″ flatbed. The bed even tilts all the way to the ground for easy loading. Without a doubt, this heavy-duty folding trailer is a jack-of-all trades.

This foldable trailer only takes up 24" x 63" of floor space when folded (board not included)

With the Haul Master foldable trailer, you can haul tools, toys and practically anything else a standard trailer can haul without tying up all the storage space. (Just keep an eye on weight and load distribution.)

Other noteworthy specs are as follows:

  • 1-7/8″ ball hitch receiver for secure transportation when properly loaded and hitched to a capable vehicle (ball hitch and hitch coupler not included)
  • DOT-certified tail lights and side running lights
  • Safety wiring harness
  • 3-leaf spring suspension
  • 4.8″ wide, 12″ diameter tires
  • Axle thickness: 5mm
  • Overall dimensions: 110″ L x 61-1/2″ W x 19-1/4″ H

This Mini Tire Changer Practically Pays for Itself in Couple of Changes

Although most guys don’t like to admit it, it’s really embarrassing to find out you’re the last to discover the latest gadget or tool all your buddies are talking about. It’s even worse to learn they’ve already been using it for ages without you even knowing about it. That’s how I felt when I discovered Central Machinery’s Mini Tire Changer (SKU 34552). Sure, I’ve been aware of professional grade tire changers for years. You know, I’m talking about the kind used by practically every tire shop on the planet. But when I saw this mini-tire changer for the first time, my jaw just about hit the floor. I stood there looking at it with this puzzled “duh” feeling, wondering why I never thought about that idea myself. Inventing aside, I could have at least owned one by now!

This mini tire changer is an absolute must-have for those who ride ATVs

So why all the bother over this thing? Well, anyone who owns a small vehicle, trailer, ATV or golf cart with rims up to 12″ could sure use one. While you might not have the space or need for a full-sized tire changer, a miniature version is bound to come in handy for all the little jobs that you wouldn’t want to bother taking to the tire shop. Sure, you could try to do it yourself with tire irons, but what a hassle! You not only waste time that way but also risk damaging your tire and marring the wheel’s finish.

Another great feature of the Central Machinery Mini-Tire Changer is its usefulness while traveling. It’s an absolute must-have for those of you who ride ATVs far away from the beaten path. A quick tire change with the Mini-Tire Changer can keep a day-long outing from being ruined over a blow-out. The same goes for those who boat fish. Nobody wants a boat stuck on the lake just because the boat trailer got a nail in one of its tires, right?

The Mini-Tire Changer isn’t just practical for travelers. It’s also ideal for servicing vehicles with wheels up to 12″ rims (like a lawnmower or golf cart). And at a ridiculously low $49.99, this mini-tire changer is an absolute steal. Heck, with some tire shops charging as much as $30 or more a pop to change a tire, this thing practically pays for itself in just a couple of changes.

Of course, Harbor Freight has you covered when you want to change regular-sized tires with the Semiautomatic Tire Changer with Air Operated Tilting Arm (SKU 90589).

Motorcycle Wheel Chocks: The Unknown Stuntmen

Motorcycle wheel chocks are like unknown stuntmen; they play an essential role but hardly get any credit for what they do. While motorcycle chocks are often taken for granted, their absence is definitely noticed. Anyone who has ever tried to haul a bike around without using one can swear by this.

A motorcycle chock can help secure a motorcycle during transit

So just what is a motorcycle chock and what do you do with it? Well, a motorcycle chock is a simple device used to help secure a motorcycle during transit, repairs or long-term storage. A motorcycle’s front wheel is usually rolled into the chock so that the sides of the chock help secure it in an upright position. It is typically used in conjunction with straps or tie downs (sold separately) and, depending on the type and use of bike, may need to be mounted onto a solid surface.

While the traditional motorcycle chock helps prevent a bike from moving sideways, it suffers from allowing the bike to roll backwards and out of the chock itself. This is especially true should the straps securing the bike become loose. Traditional chocks are also somewhat difficult to use by one person as they often require someone to assist in keeping the bike in place while the straps are being connected to the bike and mounting surfaces.

Fortunately, the guys at Haul Master (distributed exclusively by Harbor Freight) a modern chock design that minimizes these problems and more. While standard chocks consist of a simple one-piece metal bracket design, the Haul Master Motorcycle Wheel Chock (SKU 96349) takes advantage of an extra pivoting bracket connected to the standard chock component. This extra pivoting bracket is lowered down to allow the motorcycle to roll into the chock more easily. Once the bike is in position, the pivoting bracket is raised up to secure the bike in an upright position. While the non-pivoting bracket provides the usual support found in regular chocks, the pivoting portion helps keep the bike from rolling out the back. Although this design provides a fairly snug and secure fit, straps are still recommended for additional safety.

The Haul Master Motorcycle Wheel Chock can accommodate a range of wheel sizes

The Haul Master Motorcycle Wheel Chock is one nifty little gadget. Like standard chocks, it can mount to many types of floors, truck beds or trailers. It has a 10-inch movable chock length, so whether you’re into dirt bikes, sport bikes or classic cruisers, the Haul Master Motorcycle Wheel Chock can accommodate a range of motorcycle wheel sizes (but be sure to check your particular wheel size in advance). What I like about this chock is its quality for the money. It isn’t very often you can find a carbon steel chock at such an affordable low price. Don’t let the low price fool you though. The Haul-Master Motorcycle Wheel Chock is guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 90 days from the date of purchase.

I can honestly say the Haul Master is the best motorcycle wheel chock I have ever purchased. Whether you plan to use it for motorcycle storage, repairs or transit, this wheel chock is definitely the way to go. Harbor Freight has plenty of other great wheel and tire tools too, so check them out online or at your local store.
