Destroy Weeds and Trim Hedges with the Electric String Trimmer

The summer is full of recognizable sounds from lawn mowers and sprinklers to the ice cream truck coming down the block. But, this summer there is one noise you may hear less of. While the traditional “weed eater” is a staple of lawn maintenance during the summer months, there’s no denying the noise can be a bit grating. This year, pick up a 13” Electric String Trimmer (Item #: 62338) from Harbor Freight Tools and give your ears (and your neighbors) a rest!

image_25365

But the sound reduction is just one of several great reasons to add this tool to your landscaping arsenal. Not only does the string trimmer trim grass and hedges with less noise and vibration but is also safer on the environment than a gas trimmer. Using clean electricity and reliable power, the string trimmer is an eco-friendly, quiet way to spruce up your yard! Just ask these guys:

“I bought this trimmer to replace my gas trimmer that died after many years of use. This electric trimmer is just as powerful as the gas trimmer it replaced. However, it is a lot less noisy and there is no gas/oil mixture to fuss over. This trimmer adjusts in overall length and the trimmer head is easily rotated for edging jobs and the head can also be adjusted relative to the shaft for a more upright position or angled for reaching under bushes, etc.” – by PeterA from Norwalk, CT

“I have a small yard and did not need to go far from the house. This trimmer has all the features as a pro gas trimmer without the price. The auto feed feature works great. The motor is strong and does not bog down. The edge feature works great also. Great product if doing light trimming in a small area.” – by DrArcade from Grand Prairie, Tx

“Great for general grass trimming around trees, flower beds, mailboxes, fences, etc. The price was good and even better using the 20% off. This trimmer can be rotated and locked in place near the middle, so it can be used for edging around driveways or curbs.” – by Handyman Dad from Humble, Tx

The string trimmer features four cutting head positions so you can trim and shape your lawn, hedges, and bushes any way you like, whether it’s a larger patch of grass or edging along the sidewalk. An oversize grip and adjustable side handle make this tool easy on your hands as well so you can work longer without even noticing it! If you’re ready to take your lawn care skills to the next level (quietly), then get to your local Harbor Freight and grab one of these excellent string trimmers today!

A Machete That’s a Cut Above the Rest

Whether you’re clearing brush in your backyard or slashing through foliage during a camping trip, the best solution for getting through thick vegetation is the 18” Machete with Serrated Blade (Item #: 69910)! The sharp blade slices leaves and vines while the saw tooth back is perfect for hacking through thicker branches. Made of tough stainless steel, the blade is designed for longevity, allowing it to accompany you on many future excursions. And when it’s not in use, the machete is conveniently stored in an included protective sheath until you’re ready to wield it again.

image_24818

Here are some trail-blazing reviews from real satisfied customers:

“Well made machete, and I have spent many years in the jungles of Central and South America. Nice rubber type handle. Sharp blade and good saw blades on the rear of the blade. Good for jobs too small for an axe or yard pruning (branches, grass, bushes, etc.) Downside would be the sheath which I don’t expect it to last long without extreme care. The saw blades catch on the sheath when pulling the machete out. But the money was put into the machete – and that’s what is important!” – by Brazil Bill from Monument Valley, Utah

“Heavy duty blade with a rubberized handle to reduce shock to your wrist. I’m sure I’ll get plenty of use from this.” – by Mike from West Virginia

“Wow…this is one of the best I have ever bought. Really like the blade and super-good grip on the handle. Sheath worked well also. Liked the one that I bought so much that we just ordered four more.” – by jagsouthern from Mobile, Alabama

Lightweight and affordable, this machete is an indispensable element of any outdoor exploration or camping outing. With its lightweight design and comfort-grip handle, this easy-to-use tool separates the beginners from the serious outdoorsmen. So get down to your local Harbor Freight store today and pick up the 18” Machete with Serrated Blade today!

Drill, Cut and Demolish with the Heavy Duty Rotary Hammer

If you need to bust through tough concrete, there’s only one way to get the job done right. The 1-1/8” 10 Amp Heavy Duty SDS Variable Speed Rotary Hammer (Item #: 69274) from Chicago Electric provides all the power you need for drilling, cutting and breaking through a variety of materials including concrete, masonry and wood. Stronger and more shock-absorbent than a hammer drill, the rotary hammer allows you to work longer with less fatigue. Plus, there’s even a stop-hammer feature that lets you use the tool as a drill giving you additional versatility!

This rotary hammer really does the job of three tools, giving you a wide range of applications to take advantage of. Whether you want to drill precision holes, tackle some heavy duty drilling or just blast through material like a demolition hammer, you can do it all with this one item, available at Harbor Freight. If you need a little extra convincing, here are a couple customer reviews that have drilled down to just what it is they love about their rotary hammer.

“After asking all my neighbors if they had a hammer drill I could borrow to drill 3 holes in the 65-year old concrete steps, I broke down and got this drill at Harbor Freight. It’s a man’s tool; no girly drill, this! It drilled the holes for the TapCon concrete screws to adhere a staircase post to the concrete step and went through like a hot knife through warm butter. I am very happy with its performance even if I’ve only used it once, so far. But, I can see a lot more uses for this big, heavy-duty drill that has made this job much easier. I actually tried to drill with my half-inch cordless yellow drill but didn’t even get a 16th of an inch in 2 minutes. I drilled all 3 with my new drill in less time! Proud to add this to my arsenal of big-boy stuff and will look for new projects to use it again.” – by Chas from Torrence, CA

“I use this hammer drill for work. I bought it almost two years ago and it has not failed me. I use it mainly for anchors in concrete (Quick Bolts) and I have drilled several hundred holes in concrete slabs with it without fail. I will put this side by side with a comparable BOSCH. Keep the lube compartment filled with grease. I do that before using every time.” – by Pat from Hagerstown, MD

“Drilled 1-1/8″ hole through a concrete wall, starting with a smaller bit size and working up. HF did not sell a 1-1/8″ bit, so I had to get one from a different source, but the HF bits through 1″ worked great. Very satisfied, especially for the price (1/3 of what comparable “name brands” would have cost).” – by Texas Dom from Grand Prairie, TX

For a variety of jobs, the 1-1/8” 10 Amp Heavy Duty SDS Variable Speed Rotary Hammer is the way to go. An adjustable 360° side handle makes it easy to use, the quick change SDS bit system keeps bits securely in place, and the low Harbor Freight costs keeps your tool budget in check.

“I love this toolbox! The drawers have plenty of room and they are very smooth. This toolbox does everything I need it to. I have had it for a few months with no issues. The casters are of good quality and the brakes set well. Nice handle to pull it around also.” – by Willy Manilly from WV

“I have a service truck with these boxes on it, they lasted me 3 years before the drawers fell apart. They would still be alright until I moved them to the new truck. That was very impressive considering I drive on a road 2 times a day that takes me 2 hours to go 23 miles! I have had Snapon, Mac, Waterloo and Napa boxes before these HFT boxes and I can tell you that the $3000 boxes don’t hold up to that like these do. I would only get maybe a year out of the expensive boxes. So if you had these in a shop or garage I bet they would last forever!” – by Jack Of All Trades Master Of None from NM

“I am the proud owner of two of these babies! I bought my first one 3 years ago and have been so happy with it that I decided to buy another one when the sale came back around this year. These are perfectly sized to fit in my crowded two-car garage, and roll easily when I need to get behind them. The drawers seem to have been thoughtfully sized, as I have been able to stuff them pretty full of Harbor Freight tools (I got gift cards for Christmas). I’m absolutely convinced these are a great value for the money spent, but only you can determine if they’re the right box for you. As for me, I’m a satisfied customer.” – by Kansas transplant from KS

If you still need more convincing, here are a few actual customer reviews:

“I have three different compressors that I use all the time. This compressor is by far the easiest to use. Light weight and simple. I use it to build lumber projects, in the garage for auto repair, and art projects from air brushing to painting structures. I bought one for each of my sons to have at their homes too.” – by Durk the DIY Guy from Mesa, AZ

“Never had a problem with this compressor and it performs top notch! I did perform the break in just like the manual says (and yes this is very important for longevity) and I can’t complain one bit.  I could easily fill up all four tires on my car from a dead flat with all the air in the tank if I had to. Also, the drain valve at the bottom for extra air release is easy to use and assembly was easy to follow. Very portable and the wheels are solid rubber so no need to inflate them! This is my first oil compressor and although some people say you can’t use it on certain things, I find that it can be used on anything as long as you have the right attachments. Overall great product and great price.” – by Car Guy from Pheonix, AZ

“I’ve had this compressor for 5-ish years now and I’ve not had a single problem with it. It’s perfect for sitting in the corner of my shop for the little things. It works okay for small nails or brads. I use it mostly for airing tires, running my small wheel grinder, and blowing debris from the shop counters.” – by Alex from Portland from Portland, OR

While Harbor Freight has air compressors in a variety of capacities and sizes, you want to make sure you have the right one for your needs. The 8 Gal. 2 HP 125 PSI Oil Lube Air Compressor is the ideal choice for big jobs or long projects in just about any location. If you can get this air compressor to the job, it’ll handle it.

“I bought a set of these for use on my 67 Mustang. These are nice quality dollies with sturdy construction. The wheels are metal. I can move the entire form of my car with just a single hand, by pulling the handle on the dolly. If I’m feeling especially lazy I can just put my foot on the tire or dolly and give a little shove.” – by Josh from MI

“I transport cars and trucks on a 3 car trailer, and 80% of them are inoperable. These have been a life saver. I use them daily and have probably unloaded close to 2,500 cars with them. I have 3 sets in my trailer box and 2 sets at home. Excellent Product!!!!” – by Lewis Transport Service from KS

Harbor Freight Moving Blankets Have You Covered

Moving is tough.  And not just because you’ve got to change your address, forward your mail, find new local restaurants and get your internet hooked back up.  You’ve also got to get your furniture safely moved without damaging or scratching any of it. Some may consider this a nearly impossible task, but at Harbor Freight, we’ve got you covered.

When securing furniture (or anything you’re transporting for that matter) mover’s blankets are crucial.  And at Harbor Freight Tools, we’ve got a few different types to choose from which can be useful for a variety of jobs and tasks.  But if you’re looking to cover a large area (or large item), then you’ll want to grab the economy sized 72” x 80” Moving Blanket (Item #: 66537).

image_25641

First of all, while these blankets are often called mover’s blankets or furniture pads, the usefulness of these items extends far beyond just moving furniture.  Obviously, the main use for mover’s blankets is protecting your furniture or other items when using ratchet straps, tie downs or winch straps.  The pads keep your cargo from being broken or scratched during transport and they also give you some peace of mind when you’re driving that U-Haul and trying to make it through traffic with no rear-view mirror.  Plus, unlike paper pads, mover’s blankets won’t tear during transport and can be used again and again.

“This product went on sale just when I needed to insulate “Fidos” house, keeping him warm. He has to be called to come out of there now! These blankets also work wonders for tent camping flooring, or extra protection in case you vehicle is stalled along the road in winter. Can also be used to get a grip on icy spots from spinning, in place of sand, to get going again. Very durable, with multiple uses. Folds up and packs away nicely in trunk. I have at least 6 or more ready always. No complaints.” – by Daddycat from Memphis, TN

“I spent my college summers working for a local mover and learned about all the tools of the trade. My wife and I recently bought a new dining room table including two leafs. The table leafs didn’t come with any protective covering when not in use. I recalled my moving days and the nice thick pads we used to protect customer’s furniture. Harbor Freight had exactly what I needed. Upon arrival I was not disappointed. Worked perfectly.” – by TotallySatisfied from Pittsburgh, PA

Even if you aren’t in the process of moving, these mover’s blankets still have a multitude of uses around the home and garage that will make them well worth the money.  These big blankets are made of a cotton/poly blend with reinforced stitching to maintain strength and longevity for repeated use, which make them ideal for lying comfortably on the garage floor or driveway when working under your vehicle.  Even if you only use these blankets just as regular old blankets for spreading out and having a picnic in the park or laying out in the sun, they still hold up to repeated use and wear and tear!  So whether you’re moving, about to move or have no intentions of moving anytime soon, these blankets are still versatile items to keep handy!
