          I've always used gas powered blowers because they were more powerful. (So I thought) As I got older, hauling around the weight of a gas powered blower became a nuisance.
          I tried this product and was pleasantly pleased. Lightweight, powerful, variable speed trigger with "cruise control" and especially a "Scraper tip" at the end of the blower tube. (neat idea) This coupled with a five year warranty was all it took to convince me!
          Well worth the money!!!!!
          Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Easy to Store, Light Weight

          ....I wouldn't call this a tonneau cover, what it is, is more like a good quality, easy to install tarp for small bed pick ups, or utility trailers.
          Decent construction, and easy to install with provided clamps and bungee cords.
          I used this on a short bed Dodge Dakota, and it fit well

          I have the 1/2 horse version of this sump pump and found it's that it's durability and performance were second to none.
          I ordered the 1/3 horse and found the same qualities.
          Heavy duty, quiet, easy to install, and a real workhorse.
          Well worth the investment to remove water

          I installed this alarm into a "series" of other attached smoke detectors in my home and found the following:
          The instructions were not clear, and very cumbersome for a first time installer.
          After initial installation and testing, I found that the audible alarm sound from this detector was not as loud as the other three detectors going off.
          The voice activated warning (FIRE...CO2) was inaudible to the point where unless you were directly under the alarm-you couldn't hear it.
          Pros: Lots of Features
          Cons: Complicated, instructions, poor voice notification

          The removal of the old water heater was more difficult than installing this new one. Installation time, : apx. 45 minutes after the old one was removed, and "POOF"... had hot water
          If you're looking for minimal installation headaches, and costs, try to get something as close to the same height as the old heater. In doing this, I spent about 4 bucks on copper pipe, and 2 copper couplings. (see photos) This made up the small difference in the installed height between the two heaters. (Please excuse the amateur copper soldering job!)
          I lucked out when it came to attaching the gas line - exact fit without any further parts.
          Hope this helps,

          Battery Type Required = (Alkaline) size AAA :

          Restocked = Hopefully
          This is the best headlamp I've ever owned. With 3 AAA Alkaline batteries, (included) it offers over 3.5 hours of service with both comfort and the brightest adjustable light I've ever seen. I bought (5) of them after testing it because of it's quality and it's inexpensive price.
