          Husky side-mounted truck boxes provide additional storage space for your pickup truck. Attaches to the bed rail for easy side-of-vehicle access. Black powder coated aluminum diamond tread construction looks great and provides maximum corrosion resistance. Use in combination with a Husky crossover truck box to maximize the storage capacity of any pickup truck.

          The toolbox comes fully assembled and ready to mount. To mount the tool box you must position it in place and then drill through the toolbox in to the bedrail, then secure using your own supplied hardware. I've owned toolboxes in the past that had a selection of holes pre-drilled in the toolbox, but these always leave a few of the holes unused which allows road dirt to enter the box, over time this makes the box very dusty inside. This method of mounting a better idea. Once the bed is bolted to the bed rails, you hold the legs in place and at the correct height for your truck bed, then drill through the legs in to the toolbox.

Again you use your own hardware to mount the legs, I used rivets for ease but you could use nuts and bolts.
          When fully assembled the toolbox is really sturdy. I'm a big guy and had no concerns using the toolbox as a seat.
          The lid is piston assisted to aid opening and also to hold in place once open.
          The lock is supplied with 2 keys. The only feature i don't like about the lock is it is etched with a "locked" and "unlocked" icon. I'd prefer this were omitted in case opportunistic thieves notice it is unlocked, of course they could try the handle anyway but knowing the box is unlocked before trying the handle is much more tempting. Not a deal breaker by any means.
          I have this on my Ram 2500 and it really dresses up the truck. I store all my tie downs, extra hitches, and breakdown gear in it. Read Less

          When I first opened the box I was a little overwhelmed by all the pieces it contained. After reading the manual it became evident that the manufacturer had supplied all the pieces needed to accommodate virtually any TV and I was only going to need a very small subset of the pieces.
          In the end I used 4 nuts and bolts to assemble the bracket, 3 lag nuts to hold the bracket to the wall, and 4 bolts to hang the TV on to the bracket. Everything I needed, except basic hand tools (a phillips screwdriver) was provided.
          The wall mount has a built in bubble level to ensure the bracket is level, a nice touch.
          The bracket articulates smoothly and feels rock solid. I like it a lot.

          The generator is supplied fully assembled. Mine had a warning that the generator may be shipped without engine oil, it was however supplied with oil.
          From new out of the box it took just 2 pulls to get the generator started (see the video). I had done nothing more than check the oil and add 1 gallon of 85 octane gasoline.
          On the top of the gas tank is a helpful fuel level indicator. Gone are the days of removing the cap and trying to see how much gas is left.
          The generator is advertised as 5,000 watts. It is worth noting that this is running watts, and the generator actually has an impressive 6,250 starting watts.
          There are 3 power outlets - one is rated for 120 or 240v at 30A, Read More

          There are 3 power outlets - one is rated for 120 or 240v at 30A, the other two are 120v at 20A. All 3 outlets have a rubber cover to keep the elements out when not in use. Each outlet has its own breaker, and the two 120v outlets also have built-in GFCI protection.
          The wheels are solid, which is one less thing to worry about having to keep pneumatic tires inflated.
          The handle is oversized and feels very substantial. It makes moving the generator real easy.
          Everything about the generator says quality and dependability. The Briggs and Stratton engine is a name you can trust for engines.
          I really can't think of anything I would want to change on this generator. Read Less

          The newly-designed Gorilla Carts Heavy-Duty Steel Utility Cart has been engineered to significantly reduce assembly times, making it quick and easy to put this cart to work. The new frame design improves maneuverability and gives the cart a tighter turn radius, making it easy to move up to 1,000 lbs. for gardening, farming, or any other outdoor jobs. The durable steel bed features removable sides that allow the cart to convert into a flatbed for moving larger materials like 2x4s, tree branches, or fence posts. The 13 in. pneumatic tires are designed to tackle any terrain, and the convertible 2-in-1 handle makes it simple to switch between pulling the cart by hand and towing behind a lawn tractor or ATV. Whether you're an experienced farmer, a casual gardener or an occasional do-it-yourselfer, this utility cart will ensure that your outdoor projects go off without a hitch.

          The cart requires some assembly, and took about 15 minutes to put together.
          The cart easily accommodates a full size square bale of hay.
          The handle can be removed to allow you to hook this up behind a riding mower/UTV/ATV as a small utility trailer.
          The sides are *removable*, they cannot be lowered and left in place. This is an oversight in my opinion. In other carts we own we can remove the sides, or simply lower them down to make loading and unloading easier. With this cart we have to remove the side completely, it cannot be lowered.

          This LG 7.3 cu. ft. Electric Double Oven Range with ProBake Convection features two large-capacity ovens that lets you prepare everything from a holiday roast and all the sides to pans and pans of cookies all at once. This unit allows you to bake faster and more evenly than traditional convection ovens. Of course, with big meals come big messes, so LG’s EasyClean Express makes cleanup as simple as 10 minutes and three easy steps. Plus, the sleek, easy access controls make it easy to cook (and look) like a pro.

          As soon as the stove was in place the whole kitchen looked refreshed and modernized. It is amazing what going from a fairly standard 8 year old white appliance to this very sleek and modern looking stainless model can do to the overall look of the kitchen.
          There are a total of 5 heating areas on the stove top. One is a "ultra heat" burner, which is essentially a double element to quickly heat things up. There is an oversized heating element which is superb for our large canning pans. Two regular sized burners, and another area designated as a "warming area". Given that the stove has the exact same footprint as our old 4 burner stove, this is an awesome use of space.

There is an oversized heating element which is superb for our large canning pans. Two regular sized burners, and another area designated as a "warming area". Given that the stove has the exact same footprint as our old 4 burner stove, this is an awesome use of space.
          This stove uses radiant heat, which means you do not need to use special pans with copper bases like you would with a induction type. I really had no inclination to replace all our pans.
          The flat burner surface makes cleanup super fast and simple. No more removing wire elements to clean underneath them - just a quick wipe over with a cloth is all that is needed. The elements heat up instantaneously.
          The stove has two ovens, yes two! Both have convection to ensure even cooking. A slightly smaller one for every day use and a larger lower one for catering for bigger events. Instead of heating up a large oven, you can use them much more efficiently. You can also set them at different temperatures to prepare multiple dishes at once. Storage below the oven is sacrificed for this, but in my opinion it is well worth the trade off.
          The inside of the oven is a very pleasing electric blue enamel color. That in its own got some "oohs" and "ahhhs" from those that saw it,
          Like all modern ranges it has a clock, timer, delay start etc.
          A super fast 3 hour self cleaning mode ensures the ovens are always immaculate and ready for inspection by even the most finicky in-law.
          When the stove was delivered and installed, they helpfully hauled away the old one. Read Less

          In the photo it appears to move up and down, "Hot and Cold"? but does it move in and out for low to high pressure? Wish I could see a pick of one with water running. I would like to be sure of that up before ordering these.
