          It's a basic small bathroom vanity. Overall its a nice and looks great. The only negative is that the cabinet is made from particle board. The nice looking surface is easy to chip on the edges. Also if water gets on just about any of it is swells and starts falling apart. I seal all the raw particle board edges with a couple coats of waterproof glue.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Solid, Easy to Clean, Good Use of Space
          Cons: particle board construction

          For the amount of cleaner/disinfectant that you can make with this its a great deal. Mold is pretty easy to kill and get rid of, just about any detergent will work. I don't know if this does anything more than any other cleaners, but does what it says on the bottle. There is very little if any odor and what there is, it's not offensive. What is nice is that you can mix up what you need, a small spray bottle to use for regular household cleaning or gallons worth to clean a boat, RV or any large area. For larger jobs, a pump sprayer works well. It doesn't seem to change the way a surface looks after it has been used like bleach would.

          If you don't need to z-wave feature look elsewhere. I prefer the Lutron Maestro unit for there sleekness.
          Think one works well and can be remotely controlled. So now no more getting off the couch to control the light.
          Install isn't difficult, other than the fact that this is a large switch, so getting it and the wires in the electrical box can be a challenge. I have small metal boxes, so I needed to install a retrofit box.
          Pairing with a Wink hub wasn't difficult, just need to read the instructions and find the ones for the hub to refresh my memory on what to do.
          The dimmer buttons are a little hard to push.
          Is also comes with 3 faces so you can match your other switches.
          Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Easy Replacement, Easy Installation
          Cons: tough to get it into the electrical box

          For those times when the impact driver just doesn't have the power this gets the job done. Actually this is just so much more convenient than getting out the air compressor and air hose. I used the previous model and it was a bit weak, I had to get the air powered impact wrench to often. This one is nice when rotating tires or tighten lag bolts. I doesn't have the power of the air powered impact wrench but it works in most cases. The other previous model was good 50% of the time this one is good 90% to 95% of the time. Will it last as long, probably not, but for a home owner or contractor that does use it hours a day I will probably be just fine. Another bonus is that is it quieter than an Read More

          This new versatile yard tool is a 2-wheeled cart designed to be attached to any lawn or garden tractor. 4 collapsible sides allow the Hauler to be folded flat and stored vertically, taking up 70% less space in a garage or shed than traditional yard carts. The foldable feature also allows the hauler to be used in flat-bed mode, convenient for hauling long loads like logs or lumber.

          When I got my lawn tractor it came with a free tow behind metal trailer. It was worth exactly what I paid for it. This one on the other hand is so much better.
          This one is pretty heavy even when empty. The plastic it is made from is heavy duty and it barely flexes. And when it does it's not permanently bent. The construction of the entire trailer is well made and heavy duty. With an 800 lbs load capacity I think the lawn tractor is the limit not the trailer. With a garden tractor you might be able to go with higher loads, but I don't think most lawn tractors are happy towing an 800 lbs load.

          The nice features are, the tire are air filled and also sealant infused to stop a leak if you should get a puncture, up to an 1/8" it says. The assembly is easy other than moving the box, this is not a light trailer. The trailer cargo area s all plastic so no rust and it's a lot quieter to tow around empty. It tips easily. The gate in the back open, and the side fold down too. There are also tie downs to help secure loads (mainly when the sides are folded down).
          The little nitpicks or downsides are not much. The hitch arm did not fit into the pocket in the trailer, i had to squish the cut C-channel so it would fit (you will need a couple of decent c-clamps or similar to compress it to make it fit easily). The latches for the rear gate are tough to open and close, hopefully they get easier with use. With the rear gate down the sides of the cart are very wobbly. The paint seems to scratch pretty easily, I don't think it's powder coated, just painted. Read Less

          The days of multiple applications to kill weeds and grasses are over. Just one application of Bayer Advanced Durazone Weed and Grass Killer kills existing weeds and grasses Plus prevents new ones for up to 6 months. Apply it to the entire zone you want protected against weeds, not just the emerged weeds-creating a weed prevention barrier that continues working for up to 6 months so you don't have to. Controlling weeds in your landscape has never been easier.
