          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Disappointed.....Ive used other mechanical mole traps in the past and had great success, however, this product lacked both quality and design. When I first inserted the trap into the ground, sand/dirt mix...one of the two stakes bent. also, after twice reading the directions, and trying to "set" the trap, the latch, several times failed to catch to keep the trap loaded. When it finally did set, I returned the next day to find the trap had sprung...but no mole.
          The spring tension to the plungers is good, however, have a strong arm to set it. Would not recommend.
          Cons: Not Durable, poor design

          I am very happy with my Ninja Pro. I purchased the 4 year warranty for less than $5 and I love the product which is made well. I particularly like the design. It works very well too. It is easy to clean and it holds a lot of liquid so I can made enough for 3 smoothies at a time.
          The 900 watt motor and number and placement of blades lets this beast chew up anything you can feed it!
          Great Product....Great price!!!!
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Fast / Speed, High Quality, Large Capacity, Looks Great, Modern, Nice Design

          I've only used this unit twice, but it's certainly up to the job. This isn't your cheap lawn spreader. Distributes a full hopper of material FAST! The spread seemed to be evenly broadcasted, nothing to the assembly - connect the handle and go!
          Larger tires made this easy to use even after fully filling the hopper. Opening and closing the hopper feed worked well with no overruns. Good investment for large areas that need covering!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Multi Use, Strong

          This water heater provides instant and continuous hot water for up to 4 showers and 1 faucet (based on geographic location). Rheem Performance Tankless Electric Water Heaters help reduce energy usage, save on energy costs, and are small so they will be a perfect match for installations under a cabinet or sink in your home, office, boat or RV. Plus, it's a great value with a 5-year heat exchanger and 1-year parts limited warranty.

          I am going to condense my lessons learned and observations after one week of use into a pros list and cons list.
          Pros
          - Unlimited hot water
          - Less electricity use overall than tank (unverified but theoretical)
          - Small and wall mounted
          - Simple DIY installation with rudimentary plumbing and wiring skills
          - Adjustable temperature control
          - Stylish looking unit
          - Shower went great
          Cons
          - Much longer to get hot water to the fixture than tank, say goodbye to really hot hand washing sessions
          - Large electrical service needed to handle max load
          - It would be nice if there were diagnostics so one could check if all 3 heaters are working, for example
          - Despite claims and estimates of

          - Despite claims and estimates of what it can handle, it seems to have trouble keeping up with a full open bathtub spigot
          I am going to insulate all my pex hot lines and see if that makes a difference in getting warmer water quicker to faucets.
          Make SURE your electrical panel has room for the additional breakers needed and is rated high enough to handle this product!! Read Less

          My 4WD is parked right near the garden sprinkler and I am constantly cleaning the hitch ball from rust and it is unsightly. No More, with this stainless steel one. I even bought 2 more for other caravanning friends with the same problem - great value for money.
          This is a great stainless tow ball. I bought a Reese tow hitch and a receiver, but could not find this locally. Looked for the best buy on a stainless one, and Home depot had the best product for the right price!!. Reese products are always well made. .
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, no rust!!

          The wheels are installed when the trimmer is assembled and there was a steel axle which slid through the openings in the wheel. The are no ball bearings, however, the wheel was manufactured with a heavy duty plastic hub for the axle to slip thru, and seems strong enough to prevent wear, cracking, etc...
