I installed this engine on my log splitter and it started on the first pull. It is powerful and quiet! – Farmer Marc, Williamsport, PA

Recently ordered a new engine to repower my tired old roto-tiller. Checking prices from various suppliers, I decided on the new 6.6 HP Predator engine from Harbor Freight Tools. After installing the engine and going over the mechanicals to make sure everything was ready, I filled it with the correct amount of oil and fuel. When I was ready, the engine started up the very first pull of the cord. For the price, it’s an excellent value! Plus my old tiller is now ready for another 25 years! – Mechanic, Huntington, ID

Replaced the old engine from my John Deere snow blower, starts easy when cold or hot, has great power to throw the snow. I am very satisfied. Have used for 2 and a half winters so far with no issues. –  Guyforlogos, Minnesota

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!

5 Tools: Build the Perfect Lemonade Stand With Your Kids

lemonade stand

You’ve heard the old saying, “Build a Better Mousetrap.” You can certainly apply that to a lemonade stand, ’cause as much as your heart goes out to the kids hawking their punch in hundred-degree weather, if they’re standing behind a card table with a flapping poster board taped to the front, you’re probably going to be less apt to pull over and buy a cup. If you want your progeny to get a taste of making something of themselves in the world, at least give them a fighting chance. Here’s a great way to not just show them how to run a business, but how to build a business! Building a lemonade stand is fun way for them to learn some basics about construction. And if you take the time to build a sturdy Lemonade Stand, they could also use it down the road as a puppet theater, a “fishing game” stand at a fundraiser, or even as the “register” at a yard sale.

The 5 Tools

Another great reason to build a lemonade stand is, you probably already have the tools to make it. Here are the five things you’ll need:

lemonade stand 2

Detailed steps on how to build the perfect lemonade stand- including illustrations!- can be found on Instructables.com. It even provides extra steps if you want to convert the stand to a home garden “wishing well!”

Projects such as this are easy and fun for all the family. Even more, they build memories that can last a lifetime. And the tools to make them happen can be found for extremely low prices at Harbor Freight Tools!

“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! This upgrade saved me $200.00 towards a new mower that I instead applied to hobby money…” – by Bladerunner from Washington

The 5.5 HP Predator Engine is just one of many that Harbor Freight carries in a variety of displacements for a wide range of uses. Take a look to see which one serves your needs best and get down to your local HFT store to pick it up today!

Portland Electric Outdoor, Fall Tools for the Yard and More!

We’re about a month into the fall season but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to stock up on electric lawn care tools! Especially when they’re part of a new line of products available from Harbor Freight Tools. We have some great items available just in time to help you tidy up your lawn, driveway, gutter and backyard quickly and easily. This new line of outdoor electric tools from Portland Outdoor makes cleaning up leaves, cutting hedges, and trimming grass so simple, you’ll never think of them as chores again.

3-in-1 Electric Blower, Vacuum, Mulcher (Item #: 62337)

image_25364

Versatile and efficient, the Electric Blower Vacuum Mulcher is practically a whole set of lawn care tools in one! Clearing your driveway of leaves is literally a breeze with this lightweight tool and the $49.99 price tag is pretty lightweight too. When you need to switch over to a vacuum to clean up grass clippings or sawdust, you can do so with the simple flip of a switch. That’s right, no tools required! Plus, with two speed settings, you can tackle big jobs just as easily as small ones. But no matter if you’re using the blower, vacuum or mulcher setting, the 3-in-1 electric tool runs at a pleasantly quiet 84-97 decibels.

“I picked up this tool when I first saw it come into the catalog at Harbor Freight Tools and boy howdy am I glad I did. I didn’t have much use for a lawn vacuum or a blower but I sure did need a tool for mulchifying my yard. Every year I wasted quite a bit on buying store brand mulch when I could have just been making my own from whatever random debris like leaves and deer droppings happened to end up in my yard. I’ve been mulching all week long and my neighbors have started coming up to me asking where they can get such a magical mulching tool and I’m sending them right back over to Harbor Freight Tools. Thanks Harbor Freight Tools, you are my go to Mulch Tool guys!!” – by Mulchy Joe from Amerika

Look at that. Harbor Freight bringing neighbors together! And no, I did not make up Mulchy Joe.

13” String Trimmer (Item #: 62338)

image_25365

I grew up calling this a Weed Eater but no matter what you call it, the 13” String Trimmer gets the job done fast. One thing I remember about Weed Eaters though is how loud they were. However that certainly isn’t the case with the String Trimmer! This quiet electric tool delivers all the power you need to trim grass without noise, pollution, or spending an arm and a leg. For just $34.99, you can trim your way to the perfect lawn by taking advantage of four cutting head positions to get the perfect angle anywhere. An oversized comfort grip means you can work longer with less fatigue and an adjustable shaft lets you extend the trimmer up to 22” so you can work comfortably and save your back.

22” Hedge Trimmer (Item #: 62339)

image_25366

If you have hedges, you know they can be tough to maintain. But with the Hedge Trimmer, you can keep your hedges perfectly sculpted for the fall. Because when the kids come by for trick or treating, we all know the dads are going to be judging your shrubbery while they wait by your mailbox. This year, they’ll be green with envy as they see how finely trimmed your shrubs and hedges are thanks to the dual action double sided trimming blade featured on this versatile trimmer. Don’t be surprised if they ask how you achieved such excellent landscaping skills, and when they do, you can be prepared to inform them that the 22” Hedge Trimmer did all the work. And no, they can’t borrow it. For just $39.99, they can easily pick up one of their own at their local Harbor Freight store, just like you did!

While Mulchy Joe jumped at the chance to write up a review on his new favorite mulching tool, these items are so new that there isn’t a review to brag about yet for the Trimmers. So, why not go grab one and be the first to tell us what you think?? Especially since you’ll have plenty more free time now that you can fly through your landscaping work faster than ever with these great items. Best of all, you can pick up all three of these outstanding outdoor tools for under $130 and that’s before using a coupon! Take control of your yard with Portland Electric Outdoor.

“I bought one to haul tools, ready mix concrete bags, mixed concrete (in plastic mixing container), axes, shovels… Liked it so much I’m buying one to haul heavy tools, equipment and supplies from my workshop at home to and from the pickup truck and boat. My back is hugely grateful for the relief.” – by jeenious from Northwest Louisiana

“My 10 y.o. son bought this cart for his lawn mowing business. His 22 inch cut mower fits on it. I have welded on a ramp that folds up so he can push the mower right up on it and 2 poles with hooks so he can put the string trimmer on. The wire mesh is great for bungee cording everything down to keep it in place.” – by Chef Marc from Harrisburg, PA

For any gardening enthusiast, landscaper, or outdoor do-it-yourselfer, this handy Steel Mesh Deck Wagon is not only a back-saver, but a money-saver too. At just $79.99, the cart is a cost-effective addition to your outdoor arsenal and will pay for itself by saving you back strain as well. If you want to double-down on your yardwork comfort, then also take a look at the Rolling Work Seat (SKU#: 91495) too. While the Wagon holds your tools, the Work Seat allows you to sit and work comfortably while keeping strain off your knees in the process. And if you need quick access to a tool, the Work Seat provides a convenient tool tray just under the seat so you won’t have to get up repeatedly to grab one tool.

With all the saving you’ll be doing on your back, joints, and tool budget, you almost can’t afford to NOT get this ultra-convenient outdoor wagon. Even if you only work outside intermittently, you can definitely benefit from a portable tool carrier like this one.

Get Additional Storage Space with the V-Shaped Hang-All

Need some extra storage space in your shop or garage but don’t know where to put it?  Set yourself up with a V-Shape Hang-All (SKU#: 68995) and you’ll free up your storage capacity without having to purchase another big tool chest!  This all-steel storage hanger from Harbor Freight Tools mounts easily to your wall with pre-drilled mounting holes and provides the perfect place to hang your hoses, rope, ladders, even bikes and much more!

68995_zzz_alt1_500_2

With this handy hang-all, you won’t have to find more space on the floor of your shop to store extra equipment.  You’ll still have all the room you had before but with convenient hanging space on your wall for loose ends, extra tools, or just accessories you need out of the way.  And on top of that, the items you place on the hang-all will be even more accessible than they would be if stored in a drawer or cabinet. Best of all though, this excellent storage tool comes in at just $1.99! That’s a price that can hang tough with any of the competing brands.

Of course, there are a few Harbor Freight customers who have found even more uses for the V-Shape Hang-All other than hanging tools from.  Here’s one YouTube user (Burn Barrel Media) who figured out how to use the hanger to stabilize his video camera:

Thanks for the kind words, Burn Barrel!  But when you order with Harbor Freight, shipping is a flat $6.99 except for overweight items.  And this item certainly isn’t overweight since it’s being used to help hold Burn Barrel Media’s video camera.  But he’s not the only one satisfied with his purchase:

“I have hung about 12 of these out in my little work shop and have about 10 in reserve. I couldn’t ask for an easier to install hanger that afford a lot of space. I usually pick them up during a sidewalk sale or promotional ad and buy them on the cheap. Have a very nice finish with protector boots on the ends. Can mount with 2 or 4 screws depending on the weight factor. Very nice and another HFT winner!” – by Old Devil Dog from Longview, WA

“I’ve used these as guitar and bass stands, either mounted on a wall or mounted on a home-made rack for multiple guitars and basses. This beats paying ten times as much for a real guitar stand at musical instrument stores. Best to wait for these to go on sale and stock up if you have several guitars and basses in your jam space, garage, studio, or store.” – by Magengar from Rensselaer, NY

“Used this for hanging air hose but it is strong enough to hang 50+ pounds of weight. I have seen similar hangers at other stores that are made of flimsy, thin metal and they are useless. These are strong and well made.” – by mechanicDave from Kentucky

68995_zzz_500_2

As you can see, this awesome hang-all really does hang just about anything!  From tools and hoses to instruments and more, this steel hanger is just as versatile as its name implies.  Wherever you need extra space, the V-Shape Hang-All is ready to be mounted and to hold up to 44 lbs. of your stuff.
