          Some jobs go beyond the workshop; some jobs make you come to them. For the jobs that demand function, strength and mobility we present the All-Terrain Vise by Wilton. Secure it in your hitch or mount it on your bench, the ATV is locked, loaded, and ready to go.

          I've no idea why nobody thought of this before, this is such a simple concept that has a multitude of uses.
          Here on my ranch I often have the need to perform in-the-field repairs, and this truck vise just made that job a whole lot easier. The jaws open to almost 6", more than enough for all my needs.
          The vise also doubles as an Anvil, which is also very handy when out in the field. I use this vice on the rear hitch receiver and also on my front end receiver. I plan to buy another bench mount and attach this to one of my trailers.
          I love the fact that the vise can be removed from the truck and inserted in to the provided bench mount. I have a number of vises in my workshop, but this isRead More

          This is an awesome borescope. The monitor is detachable, and even comes with a magnetic mount to allow for handsfree use of the monitor. The wireless image was rock solid and suffered no signal loss or distortion. The brightness of the LED on the tip can be turned up or down to suit your needs.
          A few small tools are provided to aid in retrieving items, these easily attach to the end of the borescope.
          You have the option of shooting stills or video, these are saved to a provided SD card. You can pop the SD card in to your computer (Mac or PC) or alternatively connect the whole monitor via the provided USB cable to get the images. Video and images can have a timestamp overlaid.

          This chipper shredder has a Briggs & Stratton 205 cc OHV (overhead valve) engine that runs cooler, cleaner and delivers more power. It has 10 in. pneumatic wheels with ball bearing hubs that allow you to reach the worksite with ease. The 2-way feed has a dedicated chipper chute that can handle up to 2 in. diameter branches. The over sized drop-in hopper is ideal for yard waste such as leaves, twigs and pine needles. With a 10:1 mulch ratio, operators can reduce 10 bags of yard waste to 1 bag of chips. A 5 bushel collection bag is included with the chipper shredder. There is an optional tow hitch that is sold separately if transportation using a lawn tractor or ATV is desired.

          The chipper is supplied fully assembled, and one must only add the supplied oil, and some gasoline.
          I was amazed how easily the engine started. Right out of the box it started on the very first pull.
          A large hopper makes light work of leaves and twigs, and even small branches, whilst the dedicated chipper chute handles branches up to 2 inches. The chute is self feeding, and once you get the first part of a branch in to the chute it is pulled in automatically.
          A large (5 bushel) collection bag is provided, and can be detached easily for emptying.
          The chipper comes with pneumatic tires, and also a point to attach a tow hitch to be used with a lawn tractor or ATV.

          The first thing to note about this safe is that the battery compartment (4 AAA batteries, not supplied) is easily accessible without first opening the safe. No risk of being locked out if the batteries fail.
          At 138lbs, this safe is not easily going to be carried away by a thief. Optionally, you can bolt the safe to a fixed surface. Mounting points are on the bottom of the unit only, it cannot be bolted through the back to a wall (this is to ensure the fire protection is not compromised).
          6 heavy duty bolts lock the door firmly in place. The door has an exposed hinge on the right, so the door swings left to right. On the back of the door are two compartments for storage, and also 6 hooksRead More

          The main compartment has 2 multi-position trays which can be positioned at one of 16 different heights, making it extremely versatile.
          The safe is supplied with one 5 digit master code that cannot be changed. You can add your own codes, which must also be exactly 5 digits in length.
          This safe is extremely heavy duty, and the fit and finish is excellent. Upon locking the safe I feel secure that it will protect my valuables from fire, water, and even the most persistent thief.Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Strong, many shelf positions

          The CF325 7.2-Framing Nailer is designed to load and drive fasteners 2 - 3-1/4 in. in length with gauges of 0.113, 0.120 and 0.131. It is finished in a bright orange for high visibility at cluttered job sites, and it's equipped with a depth-of-drive adjustment that resets on the fly. This nailer comes supplied with a lithium-ion battery that charges in as little as 30 minutes on the included charger. The battery's extended life lets you drive up to 6,000 nails between charges.

          Supplied with a rugged plastic carrying case, rechargeable lithium ion battery and charger, and safety glasses, all you need to add is the fuel cell, and of course the nails.
          This framing nailer is perfectly suited for use where a air compressor and hose are not available , or you simply want the freedom to use a cordless tool. The cordless nature means no more dragging hoses around the job site, and also prevents fatigue caused by the drag and restrictive nature of a air hose hanging out of the back of an air powered nailer.

          Setup time is very quick. The battery clicks in to place, a simple thumb operated release to load the nails, and a quick attach for the fuel cell. The lithium-ion battery provides plenty of run time in a small lightweight battery. The battery acts as the power switch. Push the battery in to the nailer and the unit is off, a second push of the battery engages the power. You might consider adding a spare battery, but unless you are doing a huge job I don’t see the need. The Lithium-ion battery has a quick charge feature that allows you to drive 200 nails from a 2 minute charge, and a full charge takes just 1 hour.
          Depth adjustment is quick and effortless, simply press in the two orange prongs.  This is very handy and it allows you to dial in precisely to get a perfect shot each time.
          Nail capacity is average to good. If you want a lightweight tool, then this is the perfect balance of capacity verses weight.
          This nailer is well balanced, solid, tough, and a real workhorse.Read Less
