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.

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.

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!

Go Fish with the Portable Fish Finder!

Remember going fishing as a kid?  For me, it was a lot of sitting and waiting, hoping to see the little bobber dip under the water for a split second to indicate there was a fish on the line.  And that can get tiresome.  Of course, when you’re fishing with a friend or family member, actually catching something isn’t as important as just enjoying the company.  But sometimes you just want to be able to find some fish without sitting around for four hours and tossing your line out with no real idea where those fish might be.  Well, now you can take the guesswork out of fishing with the Portable Fish Finder from Harbor Freight Tools!

For $44.99 and with 4 AA batteries, you can save yourself hours of time by simply placing the transducer into the water and using it from the boat, dock, or practically anywhere you’d be fishing from. The fish finder detects fish within a 90 foot range to help you know where to cast your line, lets you know how deep the fish is and also indicates the size of the fish.  This makes fishing so easy, it’s practically cheating!  Of course, using this fish finder in a professional competition probably wouldn’t be allowed, but for the purposes of fishing for fun, this tool is a huge help.

Plus, there are all kinds of bells and whistles on the fish finder aside from the basics.  Fishing in the dark is no problem with the included backlight function for the LED display.  And the screen can be adjusted for the most comfortable viewing angle, allowing you to keep your hands free so you’re ready to reel in your catch.  If you’re on a moving boat, the Landscape Detector will update automatically to let you know if the lake bottom is rough, normal, or smooth.

You might be wondering what other conditions the fish finder works in.  Well, according to one reviewer, this tool is highly versatile!  “I was not sure how this fish finder would work for ice fishing.  I went out today and the depth function works great. I marked a large fish on the bottom and caught a nice Walleye.  It worked really great for the price and it is small and compact.”

Another customer had this to say: “We tossed the transducer over the side of the boat while docked. When the screen showed fish, we dropped our lines and pulled them in. Our record for this season is 22 fish in 1 1/2 hours.  Our dock area is usually 9 to 12 feet deep. The position of the fish shows how far down to drop the line. Great little fishing helper.”

This is a great tool for the average fisherman or for anyone who wants to save time while out on the lake.  It pretty much does everything except catch the fish for you!  And with a compact size, it fits right in your tacklebox with the rest of your fishing gear.  Just be sure to keep it in a dry area when not in use. If taken care of properly, this handy tool will last you for quite a while.
