    I have one. Of course I only use it in the winter to pull people out of snow Banks. Most times they are not stuck real bad, so it's not getting a huge amount of stress.

    It's a nylon strap. Most likely the warn or other brands came from China as well.

    With that said, most straps lose their life from getting cut. Not many actually snap while in use.

    I have one - and I'm pretty sure I paid less than $29.

    I wouldn't use it as a recovery strap as I have a kinetic rope for that. But they come in handy as an extension or tree strap. Keep it clean, dry and out of the UV - don't subject it to strong, sharp loads - and it should do OK.

    Until it breaks :p

    For a tailgate they’re plenty good. Those bolts thread into plastic.

    didnt see any reviews for the "industrial solder iron"

    so heres my impression after a few uses: works great and quick compared to typical pen style solder irons. i used the thin solder that came with and havent had any issues with it melting fast. although the actual tip that heats up would bend as if it was getting too hot while heating up the wire and holding it down. its not anything crazy bent but i would try to heat it the other way every other time. it does come with 2 spare tips as well.

    overall easy to use and works well.

    I have bought the torque wrenches from the 1/4 up to the size 1/2 Drive. We have a torque wrench calibrate verify machine at work and the HF wrenches were not off by much considering the price. In a range of 20fb -120 it was only off by 1-2 fb. good enough for home mechanic work IMO.

    I don't think they are almost the same. With the coupon HF offered, the trailers could be bought for $270 out the door.

    Yeah, I have it... Works pretty good and makes the process much quicker/ easier / cleaner... It will help ALOT if you put some teflon tape on the threads of the bleed nipples as air likes to come through there. I usually finish up with a few pumps of the old brake pedal method and all is good.




    How about the gas chain saw? anyone have experience with it? :

    I will just be using it camping it won't be seeing heavy use. Wish they had a 14'' or 16'' version
