Along with convenient portability, this air compressor unit comes with plenty of features that only make your job easier. Featuring a powerful direct drive induction motor for optimal performance as well as a durable ABS shroud for protection, this compressor is able to withstand even the harshest of work environments while you concentrate on the task at hand. Plus, with thermal overload protection and a clear view oil window, maintenance is a breeze too. Why settle for anything less?? 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. And if you can get yourself to your local Harbor Freight store, you can pick it up for a fraction of what other retailers charge!

“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

“I use it to work on my motorcycles. The rollers are smooth and the tool tray is a great convenience. The seat is comfortable enough for me, without being obtrusive. Being able to raise and lower the seat is also welcome when working at machines of different heights. Assembly was a snap. Can’t go wrong for the price. I have only it for a week so I can’t comment on its durability.” – by BusaMan from Sacramento, CA

“I love this seat. Assembled in 1 minute tops, and works like a dream. No more dirty pants and upset wife when I come into the house!

I would recommend also purchasing the magnetic parts tray to go along with the seat, as it is very helpful to have a place for all those little parts too. This is a perfect addition to any garage and I recommend it to everyone. Thank you Harbor Freight for making these so affordable and with quality too.

“I cut grass and mixed a few leaves with no problem. This motor has the power to get the job done. Only take a couple of pulls to start and it kicked butt. Not heavy either; therefore, you can pick it up easily if necessary. The throttle system actually works too unlike some motors I’ve purchased in the past. Ability to use ethanol 10% is a plus as well.” – by Mason from Baton Rouge, LA

“My original mower had multiple issues after several years of use. A choice between a new mower or an engine was easy to make, especially with a 20% off discount. Filled with oil and gas and the engine started on the third pull. Runs smoothly and I did not notice any motor stutter as I plowed through some deep grass that would have been a struggle with the old motor.” – by LRoy the Tool Collector from Torrance

“This well-designed, well-built engine was a direct replacement to the Tecumseh on my Yard Machine mower. (5 minute INSTALL)! The cables took less than a minute to connect, Snap!

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!

Lift Your Mower or ATV for Easy, Hassle-Free Maintenance!

That’s why the High Lift Riding Lawn Mower / ATV Lift (Item #: 61523) is such an essential tool. This high quality item gives you the ability to work under your mower or ATV safely and quickly with minimal effort!  And with Harbor Freight’s low prices, making the purchase won’t require much effort either compared to dishing out hundreds more at other retailers.

image_23685

This handy and easy-to-use lift supports up to 300 lbs. and rises to a maximum height of 25 inches, giving you plenty of room to get underneath for repairs or maintenance. Plus, the high-powered pump is foot operated for easy lifting that keeps your hands free and saves your back from strain. And with those smooth-rolling 5 inch wheels, you can maneuver the lift to wherever it’s needed for optimal convenience and portability!

“After watching me service the blades on 2 riding mowers for years, my wife finally stood her ground and insisted we get one of these things. I’m sure happy she finally talked me into one. They are great. Well-made and dependable. Great deal, nice equipment.” – by Tim D from Texas

“I bought this for my ride on mower and it works like a charm. It gives you plenty of room to get under the deck even with your creeper. You can easily change belts or blades. The wheels are very secure in the lift arms, but I would recommend strapping the wheels or chassis anyway. It is built very similar to lifts costing double the price.” – by zeus2k from Georgia

That’s right, this Mower/ATV Lift is a tool fit for the gods! It even gets Zeus’ stamp of approval (lightning bolt of approval?) for being reliable, secure and affordable. Cut out the frustration and heavy manual lifting when working on your mower or ATV! Pick up a High Lift Riding Lawn Mower / ATV Lift from Harbor Freight today and outfit your shop or garage with a lift you’ll love!

Set Up Your Workspace or Add to Your Storage Capacity!

Finding the ideal tool storage for your shop or garage can seem about as daunting as taking on any big, new project. But with the selection from Harbor Freight Tools, it doesn’t have to be! Sure there are a lot of options to choose from but for anyone looking to outfit their workspace with a new tool cabinet, there is one item that stands above the rest. The 26”, 16 Drawer Glossy Red Roller Cabinet Combo (Item: #67831) provides a whopping 14,600 cubic inches of storage for a ridiculously low price of $369.99! That’s enough for all your favorite tools plus maybe a few new ones as well. With the money you’ll be saving, you’ll have plenty left over for a few more new items to add to your arsenal.

image_11487

But this tool cabinet isn’t just a place to put your stuff. It’s a rock solid security unit as well as a stylish addition to your workspace. As with any U.S. General tool storage unit, you get the benefit of ball bearing slides on all drawers for easy opening, smooth-rolling casters for quick maneuvering, and lockable drawers for added security. You even get non-slip liners in each drawer so your tools stay protected and in place when not in use.

“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 sales 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 Wichita, KS

“I shopped around the various stores and looked at $600, $700, $800 tool chests and eventually came across this unit. I checked the display unit in the store and it seemed quite functional so I bought it. There’s tons of space in this unit and, after emptying out my three plastic tubs of tools, I still have shelves with space available. The drawers open and close smoothly and the foam drawer inserts keep the tools in their place. I have nothing negative to add based on the price-point.” – by Keith from Orlando, FL

The Roller Cabinet Combo takes as much care of your tools as you do and when it’s time to upgrade your workshop for a price that won’t break the bank, pick up a U.S. General tool storage unit. You shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg for reliable and secure tool storage. This combination roller cabinet and top chest is also the perfect combination of price and quality. If you’re ready to upgrade the storage and organization in your garage, get one of these tough units from your local Harbor Freight today!

The 1/2” Variable Speed Reversible Hammer Drill

Why have a regular old drill in your shop when you can have the best? When you need to power through materials like concrete, steel and wood, it’s time to take the next step in Hammer Drill performance. The 1/2” Heavy Duty Variable Speed Reversible Hammer Drill (Item: #68169) delivers more versatility, more control, and even more comfort than other hammer drills on the market. With this item in your hands, you’ll get jobs done more quickly without sacrificing safety or quality.

image_14083

Just like its long name implies, this Hammer Drill from Harbor Freight is heavy on features. Powering up to 2,800 RPM with a 7.5 amp motor, you can drill easily through a variety of materials at lightning speed. You’ll barely feel it though thanks to a smooth comfort grip handle and a detachable auxiliary handle for extra control. Yet, even though it comes packed with variable speeds and an included depth gauge, this item will only run you $29.99!

“I purchased this drill and have already used it to make about 15 holes in concrete. Just flip the switch to hammer mode and it drills through like butter with a masonry bit. I have used a non-hammer drill before to make the same holes and it’s not even comparable. Don’t even bother using a regular drill for masonry work. You can’t beat the performance to price ratio of this drill!” – by Satisfied Customer from Miami, FL

“Needed a hammer drill for installing gate hinges into a cinder block wall then install anchor’s into a concrete floor. I read the reviews on this drill and stopped by HF and purchase it. The drill is absolutely remarkable. Built like a rock, I love how it drills through four inches of concrete with a half inch drill bit with no problem. Brick and cinder block also have no chance with this drill. Recommend this drill? Yes I would.” – by trwtturbo from Garden Grove, CA

There’s nothing like a good review from Satisfied Customer or anyone else from the Customer family. If you’re looking to add to your power tool family and start tackling a whole range of jobs and projects, get to your local Harbor Freight store and pick up a 1/2” Heavy Duty Variable Speed Reversible Hammer Drill today!

Weld with Style and the Blue Flame Welding Helmet!

While safety and eye-protection is important, sometimes you want a little style with your welding helmet on top of the basic features. At Harbor Freight, we have a few cool options that will add some style and flair to any garage or welding shop. If you’re looking to pick out a welding helmet that stands out from the rest, take a look at the Auto Darkening Welding Helmet with Blue Flame Design (Item #: 91214)!

91214_zzz_500

For just $54.99, you get all the great features you’d expect with any top-of-the-line welding helmet, plus more. As soon as you start welding, the lens on this helmet darkens in just 1/25,000th of a second for optimal protection and safety while welding. Also, you can work in comfort with an adjustable head strap and padded interior. This helmet works so well, you might forget you have it on! That is, until you hear all the compliments you’re getting about how awesome it looks on you.

“This helmet has a quick flash response. It works just as good as any high $$$ helmet. I work with a 125AMP MIG/Flux welder and I have no problems with the flash rate. I was very hesitant on buying this one but, boy I’m glad I did. The settings are easy to control. Definitely one of my smartest purchases.” – by Big Ed’s Harley Repair from Phoenix, AZ

“I asked my wife to get this for me for Christmas last year. I just got a chance to use it. It works perfectly! The adjustments to speed and sensitivity are perfect. As a former professional welder I was amazed that something so low cost could work so good. The suspension is a bit less than desired, but for the money? This is a GREAT DEAL. So, 5 stars is valid. Thanks Harbor Feight for another great deal on a tool.” – by gliverson from Boise, ID

“Bought the 170 amp welder earlier and just as with that, I went a step up and got this helmet. Really pleased. Adjustable darkening works great. Tension adjusters allow the helmet to stay up with no fuss. On/Off in a flash allows much better results with MIG welding. Adjustable head strap is also comfortable. No problems so far so we’ll see but am very pleased for the money.” – by Mr Beam from Windham, NH

From professional welders to beginners in the field, this welding helmet satisfies the requirements for all skill levels. Whether you’ll be using the helmet constantly or intermittently, you’ll find that it helps you get the job done right without getting in your way. However, I can’t guarantee other customers won’t get in your way when you try to grab this hot item! So get down to your local Harbor Freight store today and grab one for yourself!

A Tote-ally Awesome Tool Tote!

We all love toolboxes but sometimes they just aren’t practical (or comfortable) to carry around from job to job. If you’re looking for a tool storage alternative that features all the storage capacity you need while remaining easy to carry and durable, Harbor Freight has your solution. Check out the 19” Tool Tote (Item #: 61470) which retails for the paltry sum of $19.99! With the money you save, you could even pick up a few extra tools and accessories to start filling it with.

image_24865

And you’ll certainly be able to fit a shocking amount of tools and equipment in this handy tool tote. Aside from a huge central pocket for bigger power tools, you also get 13 outside pockets for placing hand tools or smaller accessories until you need them.  Until you do though, they’ll stay safe and protected by the durable polyester construction and a tough rubber bottom. That means the tote takes a beating while ensuring that your tools don’t! And neither does your tool budget, for that matter.

“Get rid of your metal/plastic tool boxes. Get rid of your bucket bag. GET THIS! Way easier than a tool box, fits all my pliers and screwdrivers in outside slots with sockets inside. Has multiple straps inside for drill etc. Much easier than always opening a tool box or, even worse, one with drawers that open every time you carry it. Great price….metal handle…..think you will like it.” – by DogTag from Ft. Worth, TX

“I work professionally installing hard wood floors. I need a lot of hand tools with me on the job. Don’t like a tool box where you just throw your tools all together and then have to dig for the one you need. This is perfect, it allows you to keep your tools organized and you can find what you need fast and easy. I’ve had this tool bag for about three months now and it’s held up great. Similar tool bags cost twice as much, this one is a great value.” – by Dom from Omaha, NE

Once you’ve gotten over the fact that Dom & DogTag may be the greatest unmade buddy cop action TV series ever, you’ll realize that these guys know what they’re talking about. Whether you’re a casual do-it-yourselfer or a professional contractor, the 19” Tool Tote is a great way to help organize and protect your tools while also being able to take them just about anywhere!
