“Great Torch. I bought this to light my charcoal since I run my bbq pit and smoker pretty frequently. Got this sucker on sale with 20% off. Connected the hose and hooked it to my propane tank in about 2 minutes. I used a flint striker to light it and I had a full load of charcoal ready to cook in about 5 minutes. I also used this to burn some weeds in the driveway and back yard. Great buy hands down!” — by dat504life from Torrance, CA

“Wow compared to my last burner, this is a 700% improvement. I was almost scared to hit the TURBO feature and I like fire!! FIRE GOOD! cant wait for the weeds next season… they don’t stand a chance. the only thing they could improve is a little longer hose, but to me the way it works is all I care about.” – by regg187 from LHC, AZ

Whether you’re in the market for a propane weed torch, a torch for removing paint from non-flammable surfaces or a general purpose propane torch for other applications, you’ll love this Propane Torch!  Get it while it’s hot!

Fly High with Your Own RC Airplane

In the more than 100 years since man has been able to fly, we’ve made several significant advancements.  From the early days of the Wright Brothers making history on Kill Devil Hill in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to the modern international airports that now cover the world, the fascination we have with flight has only grown stronger with time.  Now, we not only use airplanes as modes of transportation, but we also fly remote controlled aircraft and become captains ourselves.  With the holidays fast approaching and the great selection at Harbor Freight Tools, there’s no better time to see what special gifts you can find for your favorite aviation enthusiast.

Harbor Freight offers two radio controlled airplanes that provide tons of fun in the park or backyard.  With the basic version for $39.99, you get an RC airplane that takes flight for up to 20 minutes on a full charge.  Made to withstand rough landings, this sturdy Rechargeable Radio Controlled Airplane comes with replacement propellers so you can make repairs and keep right on flying.  If you want to take your flying fun to the next level, then perhaps the Radio Controlled P51 Mustang Airplane for $99.99 is the better choice for you.  This top-notch RC plane comes pre-built and flies for up to 10 minutes on a full charge.  While you don’t get the flight time of the basic version, you can fly in style with the same design as the famous P51 Mustang!  And don’t forget, no matter which RC airplane you choose, you’ll need to pick up 6 to 8 AA batteries to power the remote control.

Here’s what customers had to say about the basic version:

“I bought one of these to try my hand at RC airplanes. When flying one time I crashed it many feet up in a tree. That was the end of that, I thought. However, I saw the plane slowly bouncing down to the ground.  I found it a few minutes later drenched in water and up against a grate in the irrigation ditch. I fished it out, took it home and let it dry out overnight. The next morning I powered it up and was amazed that it sprang to life! The engines fired up and it was good to go for many more flights. Practically indestructible.” –Blaine from Utah

“I have enjoyed my plane for a few years now. I just took it out last night after it had been sitting for a COUPLE OF YEARS. Charged the battery, took it out in CALM evening twilight conditions. Had a 10 minute flight. I have flown radio controlled planes for 25 years and this is a hoot. I was surprised it flew after sitting for so long, unused. Great deal for the money.” – Randy from Parts Unknown

And the P51 Mustang:

“This Mustang flies as good as some of my 4 or 500 buck planes, I would recommend some extra battery packs because you will want to fly it all day!” – Nickthestick from Northville, SD

“Very good plane. Got it and flew it out the box. Amazing speeds and handling. Would recommend to anyone. Nice beginner plane. Medium to slow speeds, and looks beautiful in the air. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” – Bry from Mansfield, Tx

Now, maybe you love airplanes but don’t plan on taking a toy plane outside to fly anytime soon.  Well, that’s okay.  You can still show off your love of aviation with the Balsa Wood Airplane Puzzle!  At just $1.99, this inexpensive puzzle is fun to build and looks great on any desk, shelf, or table once complete.  Also, you can build the airplane as it comes or you can paint the individual pieces for a truly unique work of art.  But whether you choose the puzzle or one of the awesome (exclamation points optional) radio controlled planes, you’ll find them right here at Harbor Freight Tools!

Affordable, High-Quality Slow Cooking

With Christmas coming up, it’s time to start thinking of gifts and what you’ll be getting your friends and family.  Actually, if you’re just now starting your Christmas shopping, you should really get on it because the holiday is fast approaching!  There are some people who are easy to buy for and then there are those who aren’t so easy.  What do you get a lumberjack for instance?  Or the camping enthusiast?  Okay, campers might be easy to buy for, but what do you get the camper who has everything??  Easy.  A 12” Cast Iron Dutch Oven from Harbor Freight Tools!

image_17118

What does a Dutch Oven have to do with cutting down trees or camping, you might ask.  Have you ever chopped down trees?  It’s exhausting!  And you’re sure to build up an appetite.  And you might not find much time for cooking up a delicious meal.  Well, that’s where the Dutch Oven comes in.  Designed for long, slow cooking, this handy piece of equipment will let you prepare dinner while you’re out felling trees all day.  Roasts, stews, soups, and casseroles are easy with the Dutch Oven and with a capacity of 6 quarts, you’ll be able to make enough food to satisfy a manly hunger.  Or a womanly one.  I’m sure there are female lumberjacks out there.

But you don’t have to be an axe-wielding lumberjack or a camper to benefit from the Dutch Oven.  This cast iron pot works well in any kitchen and makes cooking simple.  No matter what you’re preparing, the Dutch Oven cooks evenly and thoroughly for an incredible, tasty meal.  Just for good measure though, here are a few insights from actual customers:

“Very good quality, heavy cast iron uniform thickness … cooks nice and even … easy to season and clean… I highly recommend if you are looking for a good cast iron pot to last a life time.” – By eshaw from Parts Unknown.

“Great “camp oven” for the price…Season well and it’s ready to roll. Used ours recently for Chicago style pizza…Fabulous! (I line the oven with parchment, works like a charm… actually, I just press the dough out onto a parchment sheet, drop the whole thing into the dutch oven, fill with toppings and bake…easy peasy!) Thickness seems uniform, heavy, love it…I’ll be picking up a second one for our other home.” – By Wild Alaskan from Kasilof, AK

Listen, if a wild Alaskan endorses it, you know it’s good!  And for just $27.99, the 12” Cast Iron Dutch Oven is as affordable as it is reliable.  So don’t let the lumberjacks feel left out this Christmas.  Pick one of these great Dutch Ovens up and keep your mountain man happy with delicious, well-cooked meals!

How to Make Firewood Without Really Trying

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to chop, shred, or cut it… does it make any firewood?  No, it doesn’t.  Which is why you need to be there with the proper tools, so you can create the perfect fuel for your fireplace this winter season!  At Harbor Freight Tools, we have plenty of options for getting the job done no matter where you’re getting your logs from. From felling dead trees to chopping wood to the ideal size, these reliable wood-cutting tools won’t leave you out in the cold.

image_16170Whether your trimming unwieldy branches or cutting a big tree down for lumber, you can make short work of anything with the powerful yet lightweight 14” Electric Chainsaw! Wet wood and dry wood both are no match for this reliable cutting tool and with the featured wrap-around hand guard and bar guard, you can cut with safety and precision. And unlike a gas powered saw, this tool emits no fumes and is easy on your ears but with the same high quality results. Also, if you’re looking to make some smaller cuts on trees and bushes, take a look at our selection of pruners.  With these handy items at your disposal, you’ll have your yard looking like the perfect winter wonderland in no time.

Once you have the logs, you need to get them to a manageable size. I mean, unless you want to drive to the store, pick up some pre-packaged firewood from who knows where, and then drive all the way back home. But why go through all that hassle when you can just have a top-notch log splitter do all the work for you? The Harbor Freight log splitters come in both 7 ton and 10 ton capacities, giving you plenty of force to split any log in twain. That’s right, twain. It’s an old word for ‘two’ but I’m gonna use it! However, maybe these fan videos will do a better job explaining the awesomeness of these mighty log splitters…

If that doesn’t get you revved up for these log splitters, just take a look at this great review by GarageJournal.com:

“I used this splitter on the first day for 4 hours. I was surprised at how well it performed. I was splitting logs that were upwards of 22″ in diameter. When a log wouldn’t split because it was simply too large, I’d pull the log off and rotate it slightly. Eventually it split somewhere, even if not straight through the middle due to an odd knot. I would have given it a 4 if other electric/hydraulic splitters were around the same price, but there aren’t any that I’ve seen locally and this one is the only one which isn’t a grand or so or more.”   IONH – GarageJournal.com

So now that you’re all set for the winter, the last thing you need is a way to clean up your branch and leaf covered yard. With the wind blowing and all the leaves building up, it can be a long day of raking and garbage bag-filling to get rid of it all. But with a chipper shredder, the work is cut down to a fraction of the time! And when you send those branches and leaves through the chipper shredder, you’re left with useful mulch for compost. For small jobs, the 1-1/2” Capacity Chipper Shredder is great but for those bigger limbs, pick up the 6-1/2 HP Chipper Shredder powered by a tough Predator engine.

With Autumn in the air and Winter right around the corner, it’s time to stock up on these wood and yard tools. And from cutting down trees to cleaning up after and everything in between, Harbor Freight Tools has everything you need. So while these are excellent tools to have nearby year round, they’re especially useful now so take advantage of these great prices and stock up today!

“I have properties where we have to pick up A LOT of trash. I have used other more expensive pick up tools in the past. Frankly I hesitated to buy this one because it was so light weight. Well, it has worked very well, and I have a few of them for tenants to use. Excellent value!” – Locust Point from Hagerstown, MD

“I bought 3 on sale and they are terrific for yard cleanup, no more stooping over for every broken branch or pine cone.” – AceDublB from North Bay, ON
