Warm Work Gloves for Cold Weather

Just because it’s getting cold outside doesn’t mean that you can’t get work done. Whether you’re shoveling snow, changing a tire in cold weather, or handling an emergency while it’s sleeting, some things just can’t wait. That’s why the Cold Weather Work Gloves (Items #: 96606 and 96612) are essential items for any tool kit, no matter the season. Because when weather conditions are wet, cold, or just plain uncooperative, these gloves will keep your hands dry, comfortable, and warm so you can focus on getting the job done.

So, exactly how warm are these gloves? Well, the 40 gram fleece Thinsulate™ lining is ten times warmer than standard fleece! Even so, you still get maximum gripping power and superior dexterity with these work gloves thanks to durable synthetic leather palms. That means you won’t lose your grip or the feeling in your fingers with these puppies on your mitts! And at just $11.99 for the pair, you won’t lose your cool when you pick them up from your local Harbor Freight either.

“I bought these gloves to help battle the cold weather as I finish up a big outdoor project (deck). These are awesome gloves. They keep my hands toasty warm and surprisingly dry. Even when they are a little too warm (as the day gets warmer), my hands are not sweating. I’ve used these in rainy weather too and they stayed dry inside. They are true to fit (XL), which is great since I have trouble finding gloves that fit well.” – by MarkP from Newark, Delaware

“I sell Christmas trees every year and normally I wear regular split leather work gloves. The problem with these is that after it rains or snows and the trees are soaked those gloves get wet quickly. I picked these Cold Weather Work Gloves up last year and they worked great for the wet trees. They’re also very warm; warmer than I thought they would have been as they seem lighter than most winter gloves you’d wear. I quickly found out these were also better than my regular winter gloves for snow shoveling, cleaning the cars off, etc. I even started using them to drive to work every morning.”  – by carrguy1 from Southeastern Pennsylvania

“I was looking for gloves that would keep my hands dry and warm at the same time. I have tried many different types of gloves in my time and these are the ones that by far met my expectations. I can work outside, in the snow, and keep my hands warm, and dry!” – by Techie from Reading, Pennsylvania

Obviously these Cold Weather Work Gloves are ideal for the winter months, but anyone working in refrigeration, cold buildings, or freezers should pick up a pair of these gloves available in Large or X-Large sizes. Just like MarkP said, they keep your hands warm and provide a great fit with elastic cuffs that keep dirt and debris out of the gloves. When it comes to working, your hands are your most important tools so keep them safe and comfortable with these warm, water-resistant cold weather work gloves from Harbor Freight!

Not only can you connect four hoses to one faucet with this handy item, but you can also use as many at a time as you want thanks to convenient stainless steel valves for each outlet. So whether you’re watering a big field or just a portion, this faucet-splitter gives you the ability to handle it all. Plus, the solid brass construction means the splitter won’t rust regardless of how often it’s used.

“I bought this the other day and had it setup in minutes. It works great! I went back and bought 2 more… Great product.” – by wclang from Arlington Heights, IL

“I’ve used this product frequently for the past 3 months without any problems. It works as advertised.” – by Jon R. from Memphis, TN

Great for the front lawn or the home garden as well as larger scale projects like a park or high school baseball field (or just to separate various tasks), the 4-in-1 Solid Brass Faucet Expander from Harbor Freight gives you the versatility that normal faucets just don’t provide. Easy-to-use and install, this is a great item for any home or landscaping team.

Harbor Freight’s Most Illuminating Tool

You never know when you’re going to need a spotlight. Perhaps you find yourself with a flat tire on the side of the road in the middle of the night. Or maybe you need some illumination while camping in the woods. And of course, an impromptu theatrical performance is always a possibility. No matter what the situation may be, the 3 Watt LED Rechargeable Cordless Spotlight (Item #: 61777) is just the tool to shed some light on it. Available at Harbor Freight Tools, this extra-bright spotlight charges directly from your vehicle’s 12 volt cigarette lighter socket (or any 120 volt outlet) so it’s always ready and you’re always prepared!

image_24690

Could this lightweight Spotlight be any more convenient?? I propose that it cannot. A cushioned pistol grip makes it comfortable to hold while the cordless feature allows you to take the light with you while looking for firewood or during a power outage. A high impact housing even protects the lens if the Spotlight is dropped and an auto shut off feature automatically powers down the Spotlight when it’s fully charged. Really, the Spotlight does all the work for you. All you need to do is just get to your closest Harbor Freight and pick one up for $11.99. Seriously, $11.99.

“The light is quite bright. Lights up the back of my 2 acres. Is lighter than my other lights and hold a charge for quite a while. I have had it for about 3 weeks and not charged it yet using it generally once or twice a night generally not more than 10 minutes at a time.” – by Tool hog from Houston, TX

“Super-lightweight and very bright. Stays lit brightly for well over an hour on a charge. Love the fact that it can be locked in both the off and on positions. Red charging light turns green to indicate full charge.” – by Doug from West Virginia

Well over an hour? Try 4 to 6 hours on a single charge! Of course, it’s easy (and smart) to keep the Spotlight fully charged but it’s designed to last so you’re never left in the dark. Great for emergency repairs, evening hiking, power outages, and camping trips, the 3 Watt LED Rechargeable Cordless Spotlight is portable, lightweight, and reliable.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Quest for Fire Just Got Easier

Everyone knows that one of the essential components to camping (and surviving the elements) is the ability to make fire.  Sure, there are a few ways to go about it and if you really want to impress someone with your ingenuity and machismo, you can go down the rubbing two sticks together route.  But , if you just want to get warm and start heating up some food for the evening, you can do it the easy way, with the Magnesium Fire Starter from Harbor Freight Tools!

image_16350

 

Pocket-size and waterproof, the Magnesium Fire Starter is one tool that’s better to have and not need than the other way around.  With built-in flint, a striker knife and shaving saw, this handy tool has everything you’ll need in order to get a fire started quickly, even in damp or windy conditions.  And at just $2.79, it could be an inexpensive life-saver.  Wanna see it in action?

In case you need further evidence of this fire starter’s usefulness, here are a couple customer reviews to help spark your interest:

“I now always carry a magnesium fire starter when in the woods. About 10 years ago I was forced to spend an unplanned frigid night in the woods. I found a semi sheltered spot, improved it with some found materials, then gathered fire materials and pulled out my waterproof match tube. The supposed waterproof tube had allowed enough humidity in to turn the match heads to a brittle crust. None of them lit. It was now about 10 degrees F and pitch dark. I always carry 2 methods of fire starting, a lesson learned from my dad many years ago. I pulled out my BIC lighter and with cold numbed fingers flicked it several times until the spark wheel separated from the lighter and was lost somewhere in the leaf litter. It was a v-e-r-y long, v-e-r-y cold night, but a valuable lesson was learned. When it comes down to such a basic need, the method must be simple and bulletproof. This item meets that requirement. “ – by Veeguy from Wisconsin

“I started using this product more than 10 months ago. Since then, I have bought several more to keep in storage and packs whenever they go on sale, not that they are expensive anyway. I have tested many other similar fire-steel only and fire-steel plus magnesium bar combos, even some designed for special forces, and still haven’t found anything that beats this. The original magnesium fire starter I purchased was moved to my key chain right away and has withstood the stresses of daily wear. I still use it as I have found no need to find a replacement. The striker’s flat side produces the best sparks and shaves the magnesium the easiest, while the serrated side produces saw dust style tinder in a pinch. I have been able to take nothing but this fire starter and produce a good fire with everything from sticks up to medium-sized felled branches. It would of course be easier to use a knife and hatchet to make fire wood and tinder but as I said, this tool is able to do it if you have nothing else, and that proves its worth. The original fire starter still on my keychain is used and mistreated often, but the fire-steel is still solidly attached and the only material lost is the deep saddles I’ve carved in from using it so much. I would suggest it for anyone from avid hunters and survivalists to preppers and emergency kit builders.
– Perfect for storing away in packs without taking up much room.
– Handy chain to keep together when not in use.
– A simple, no frills, straightforward tool!
– Must have!” – by Andrew the Enthusiast from Virginia

As mentioned by Mr. Vee and Mr. Enthusiast, the Magnesium Fire Starter is a great survivalist tool that is a perfect addition to any pack, whether you’re just going out for a hike or for an extended excursion.  While you’re stocking up, be sure to also check out the 8” Survival Knife with a compass built right onto the handle.  The handle also contains a survival kit which includes a sewing kit, safety pins, buttons, fishing line and hook, 6 matches, and fire-starting paper. With these two tools in your pack, you’ll be prepared to handle just about any situation, all for under $15!

“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

Save Space and Add Convenience with the Retractable Hose Reel

Sometimes a tool simply adds convenience to your garage or shop, or has a space-saving feature that gives you more room to work in and to store your stuff.  And sometimes there’s an item like the Retractable Hose Reel with 50 Ft. Air/Water Hose that does both!  With this handy steel hose reel mounted in your work area, you’ll have instant access to your water or air hose and, when it’s not in use, it’s out of the way and neatly stored.  This not only frees up space but keeps the hose off the floor where it essentially becomes a tripping hazard.  With all of these benefits and an $89.99 price tag, you can’t afford to pass this incredible item up!  And if that still doesn’t reel you in, check out what actual customers think:

“No complaints. Works as advertised. Very solidly built. You may need an extra set of hands to mount it because it’s pretty heavy. No more air hoses to trip over. Makes things a lot easier.” – Dan from Jacksonville, FL

“I have used this for about 4 months in the shop daily for air, my pressure is 145psi. This unit always locks, always draws up nice, and does not leak. I am very happy with it and glad I bought it.” – Nathan from Elk River, MN

“I bought 2 of these. One for the shop and one for home. I have a 150psi air compressor and no problems with the hose or anything else. This was worth every cent and if you’re looking for a hose reel this is the one!!!!!” – Kevin Steele from North Jersey, NJ

image_19683

I would expect no fewer than four exclamation points from someone named Kevin Steele from New Jersey and Kevin doesn’t disappoint with a solid five.  And much like Mr. Steele, the awesome Retractable Hose Reel from Harbor Freight Tools won’t disappoint either!(!!!!) Use the included 50 foot, 3/8” diameter hose anytime you need it and, when you’re done, it retracts smoothly and effortlessly with a spring-loaded release so you can move right on to the next stage of your project.  Just mount the reel to your wall, floor, or ceiling and get to work!…!!!!

ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND THE 1.5 HP ELECTRIC POLE SAW

pole sawWithout the 1.5 HP Electric Pole Saw, Alexander the Great may not have been so great! According to a dusty scroll found three days ago in the backroom of an Albanian spice merchant’s warehouse along the Adriatic, Alexander III of Macedon (A3 as he was called) inherited the kingdom from his father Phillip II who had been assassinated. Upon being named successor to the throne, A3 walked out to his backyard and there stood an olive tree that reached toward the sky. He declared “I will climb this tree and as far as I can see, I will conquer!” A bold statement. Unfortunately, the tree was so dense with branches, he could only climb up a few feet. From that vantage point, he was able to see as far as two of his neighbors’ yards, which he summarily conquered. He was then called Alexander the Terrible Neighbor.

In order to climb higher, Alexander the Terrible Neighbor needed to get rid of those darn branches. He went to Harbor Freight Tools, which had a store in Amphipolis, and purchased the 1.5 HP Electric Pole Saw. Well, it wasn’t actually electric back then, but the motor did come with a horse and a pony, hence, 1.5 horsepower. Anyway, he went back to the olive tree and started to cut more branches. Alexander was impressed with the features of the Pole Saw, which included a telescoping fiber glass pole that extended from 6 ft. to 8ft. 10 inches in length,  9-1/2 inch bar with 3/8 inch pitch Oregon® chain, automatic chain oiler, reduced kickback design, hand guard and easy chain adjustment. Midway through a branch, the saw broke but Alexander the Terrible Neighbor had kept his receipt so he returned the broken saw to the store and received a replacement without any hassle.

Back to the tree. He finished up cutting and then climbed. This time he was able to see as far as the subcontinent of India. He then sent messengers to all credit card companies and wireless carriers throughout his current empire and vowed that when he conquered India, he would establish customer service centers for all of them. The outsourcing saved these companies millions of drachma. As a reward, the Macedonian Better Business Bureau awarded Alexander a Lucite plaque and dubbed him Alexander the Great.

Today, you only need to conquer street traffic or a slow Internet connection to behold the 1.5 HP Electric Pole Saw from Harbor Freight Tools. Not only will you enjoy the fabulous features and ease of use, but you’ll become the envy of your neighbors, provided you leave their yards alone.
