The All-Purpose 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer

The summer’s almost over, but you wouldn’t know it, stepping outside. As the heat persists, so do bugs, thirsty gardens, weeds, dirt-splattered recreati0nal toys, dusty windows, etc.– all perfect reasons to keep a One Stop Gardens 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer in the garage.

As attested by Harbor Freight customers, the durable 4-gallon backpack sprayer works great in the garden, spraying water, fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide, soil conditioner, kelp solutions and weed killer. Others use it for washing their boats, motorcycles and ATVs when hoses are not available. One customer said the backpack sprayer was perfect for carrying cleaner for washing their windows.


As deer hunters are fully aware,  the game have already started hitting the crops, preparing for the winter ahead.  Many hunters anticipate the season by creating food plots– cover crops planted for the express purpose of attracting and holding the deer (soybean and clover are both favorites)– which means they need to keep the area clear of weeds, grass and other noxious growth. The 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer is perfect for transporting and spreading the weed & grass killer to the area.

Needless to say, the list of uses for the backpack sprayer ends with the imagination. You can use it to spray down dusty campsites, balconies, high-sitting wasp nests, sandy kids at the beach, out-of-reach sheds, fence lines, and so much more! And, at such a low price, there’s no excuse not to get one!

 

Happy Flag Day!

We Americans love celebrating our country: Memorial Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day. They’re more than just a chance to throw a barbecue, they’re an opportunity to honor those who lived and died for this nation, and a time to celebrate the privileges we have. But what is Flag Day? How did it come about, and why should we observe it?

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the Stars & Stripes as the first American flag, which took place June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. Not only was this a significant step in symbolizing the new, independent nation, it came about on the second anniversary of the birth of the Continental Army. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14 as Flag Day. In observance, Americans across the country fly the flag all week–, National Flag Week– as a petition that we always remember the roots of our nation’s history.

Instead of simply posting an American flag on a bracket above the garage, why not proudly fly it on a flag pole for all in the neighborhood to see? Harbor Freight carries both a 20 ft Telescoping Flag Pole Kit (95598)– able to carry two flags…

–and a 16 ft. Telescopic Flag Pole Kit (92901).

Both made by One Stop Gardens, they assemble and mount easily into the ground, and are made of sturdy, rust-proof aluminum.

This year, President Obama has signed a proclamation– as all our presidents have since 1949 and beyond– encouraging Americans to fly our flag proudly. We always do.

Harbor Freight: More than the sum of its tools

Talk to any long time Harbor Freight Tools customer and they’ll probably chew your ear off with all the great things they’ve bought and all the great things they’ve done with those great things they’ve bought from us. Among the conversations about saws and wrenches and racing jacks and multipurpose tools what you’ll learn is that Harbor Freight Tools is much more than just the sum of its tools.

From time to time we here at the Harbor Freight Blog are going to be sharing the stories that show just how true this statement is. Today I bring you a great example of a customer who know how to spot a good Harbor Freight find when they see one.
