          The Makita 3-1/2 in. Framing Nailer (model AN923) combines rugged construction and robust performance with ease-of-use features for commercial framing applications. The AN923 is engineered for a range of applications including framing walls, floors, and roofs, construction of sub-flooring, roof and floor decking, floor and wall sheathing/siding. It is ideal for framers, roofers and carpenters. The AN923 accepts full round-head nails, 2 in. to 3-1/2 in., with 0.113 to 0.162 shank diameter (plastic or wire collated). The 3-mode selector switch (bump, sequential, lock) provides increased convenience, while the “tool-less” depth adjustment offers nine settings to drive nails to a precise level on the wood’s surface. The AN923 is engineered for longer tool life and ease-of-use, with a built-in air filter to minimize dust and debris from entering, as well as a back-pressure function which clears debris out of the tool when the pressurized hose is released. Additional features include the convenient two-step loading procedure to ensure a fast re-load with minimal downtime, sharp spurs on the nose engineered to grip wood, and rubber hand-grips to provide more comfortable handling.

          While it is heavier than some, it is very well made. The slide is easy to operate, and feeds the nails without hesitation. The multiple position selector switch is very useful so it doesn't have to be set up one way. Worked great for my use and worked perfect all day. Can't wait for the next project now!! Just make sure you adjust your pressure so you don't do what I did and shoot a nail about 1/2 way through the board.
          Pros: Durable, Strong
          Cons: Too Heavy

          Got this to replace my old, worn out broom. This one is WAY better than the old one ever was. Sturdy, well made, and heavy duty. The stabilizing arms are heavy so they shouldn't bend under heavy use, and the dual types of bristles make clean up easy without having to go over the floor a couple times. It may be a little more expensive than some, but it's worth it!!
          Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight

          It's a tasty coffee, but does have a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not the best coffee I've had, but definitely not the worst.

          The Eureka AS ONE Pet has the proven power to deep clean carpets and is tough enough for pet owners. Unlike most other vacuums, AS ONE Pet is engineered with an efficient air path with limited bends and turns. This allows more air to pass through the vacuum. The direct air path from floor to cup decreases the distance for dirt to travel, which increases the amount of airflow for powerful suction. To clean with the attachments, simply set the suction control dial to “tools”. The Eureka AS ONE Pet is designed to remove pet hair in your home. An on-board crevice tool and PET dusting brush with plastic teeth grab pet hair from hard-to-reach areas. And a low profile nozzle is engineered to clean pet hair from under furniture. Clean above the floor with the 8 ft. deluxe stretch hose. The floor nozzle features a 5-setting height adjustment switch to clean different carpet types. Plus, pick up messes faster a wide 13 in. cleaning path. The AS ONE Pet is extremely lightweight, yet built to last and weighs less than 10 lbs. to easily get into spaces where dirt and allergens linger. The Multi-Cyclonic system separates large debris and fine dust, keeping the filter cleaner, longer. Other features include a Scuff Resistant Furniture Guard to protect furniture and baseboards.

          Got this with less than high expectations, thinking for a "pet" vacuum at this price it wouldn't be great, but should work OK. Was I ever surprised when it did as good of a job as the $400 vacuum I was using. It's way lighter too!! Assembly was simple - my 11 year old son put it together - and needs no tools. Literally took him 10 min. It did a great job of picking up the cat hair from our long haired cat and really did a great job overall. The stair attachment works great and really helps a lot. The only problem I have with this vacuum is that the attachments fall off of the main unit (on board storage) pretty easily. It's a little loud, but then again all vacuums are.

          You will need a few extra tiles just to get to know how to use it. I wasted a few tiles trying it out and getting to know how to use it as there were NO instructions other than the very vague ones on the box. Nothing saying how to install the cutting wheel, or the correct way to snap the tiles. Once I figured it out things went well for the most part. There were still a few cuts that didn't work, but most were ok. Still needed a wet saw for some cuts, but still much cleaner than using a wet saw for everything. Take your time and you will be fine.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Effective
          Cons: No Instructions

          Answer: 
          No, it has pretty good pressure out of the nozzle, but I HIGHLY recommend using a good stiff broom to scrub it after applying the product before rinsing it off

The ODS10 is the perfect solution for controlling a wide variety of load types. It features a low-profile digital design and vandal-resistant PIR lens.
