          The Briggs and Stratton 5,000 Watt Gasoline Powered Generator is a ruggedly built, smooth running power source for many house appliances and most of the power tools I own. It comes assembled, except wheels and foot pad, which take about five minutes to put together. Checked oil, filled the gasoline tank and it started on the second, surprisingly easy pull. So far, I've used it with multiple, 12 - 15 Amp motor loads and noticed no lagging on load change. There is no DB rating listed, but it does seem run a little louder than I expected. Also, keep in mind that if you plan to use the 240 Volt outlet, you will need to provide a "generator" locking plug or cable.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy

          The Milwaukee MX4 SDS-PLUS CARBIDE BIT SET is an excellent addition to any SDS drill set. The four cutter design produces straight, uniformly round and accurate holes in concrete and masonry, making for a more secure grip, especially with wedge style anchors. The 3/16" to 1/2" diameter assortment covers most everyday applications, with professional results at a reasonable cost.
          Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight

          The Superior Pump 1/2 HP Submersible Cast Iron Sump Pump is one serious "water mover". Ten pounds of cast iron construction, with a vertical float switch and 1 1/2" discharge. The tear drop shaped base is about 9 inches long by 6 inches wide, so it fit nicely in my 10" square by 12" deep sump well. No problems with the vertical float switch "on off" range, as long as a check valve is installed per instructions.
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, rugged

          The Rubbermaid 3-Step Steel Step Stool is a little heavier than average, but it's also quite sturdy for a 225 lb. load capacity, type II duty rating. Three steps make it a convenient height for reaching our 10' high Florida ceilings and the 5 compartment, covered portion of the "project tray" is perfect for screws and wire nuts when installing a light fixture.
          Pros: Nice Design, Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Store

          The Hunter Commerce 54 in. outdoor ceiling fan is a well made, no frills commercial air mover. Easy to assemble and install, it quietly moves moves enough air to make a difference. As for the outdoor rating, I think it will do just fine, unless exposed to a damp environment. Keeping in mind that it is made of painted steel, I would recommend instating in a location that is sheltered from the weather.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made

          I have a coy fish pawn of 3 cubic liters. i need this pump for circulation and waterfall pushing water.
          i am from Israel and we work with 220 volts electric power.

          Answer: 
          This pump is powered by a 115V 60Hz motor, designed for American power standards. I would recommend looking for a pump made to operate on a 220V 50Hz (Europe) system.

          The Husky 1-1/2-Ton Aluminum/Steel Racing Jack with its low profile design will work on vehicles that are low to the ground making it easy to lift and make repairs. The dual piston pump design makes lifting and lowering the vehicle quick and easy. The all-aluminum construction means the jack is light in weight and not nearly as heavy as steel construction lifting jacks. The swivel ball bearing casters make it easy to position the jack before lifting.
