    Not yet, I'm waiting for Dan @dc welding and I to get our schedules to line up.

    No I ended up getting a HF Apex 12K w/synthetic line and wireless remote for under $500. I kept the receipt though so we'll see.

    The HF Apex winches seem to be getting halfway decent reviews online. I think in general HF is trying to re-brand away from being cheap Chinese stuff to moderately reliable Chinese stuff.

    I have heard absolutely amazing reviews about the new apex winch from harbor freight. It really does sound like a great winch. That's awesome

    Yeah, we were all out there with the 4 kids jumping off the dock. My two had stayed over Saturday night for our anniversary. Side note: If anyone’s in the Hudson/Marlboro area I highly suggest Welly’s. Food was amazing.

    I only summered there as I was in college at the time. We lived off Old Lawrence road on the Methuen line. I’ll have to check out the area again soon. Similar thing happened to Hudson Nh after we moved back to Mass in ‘12. From what I gather they’re building a massive Amazon facility off exit 2.

    With the ultimate demise of Sears / Craftsman (yes, I know you can buy it at Lowes / Ace, but it's not the same) I think there's a market for something to take that slot.

    I've only broken one HF tool thusfar, although it was a pretty sad piece to break being a 1/2 to 3/8 adapter that sheered straight off. My air tools have gone through 3 suspension installs, a bunch of breaking lugs loose, etc without hiccuping.

    I did notice they have basically discontinued the 20% coupons, which I dislike.

    Yeah, that's kinda what I've noticed with all the branding that they’ve been doing.

    Thanks man. I liked it because it's a 12k, it has synthetic rope and also because it came with the bracket and longer wires to relocate the sylnoid right in the box.

    The coupon worked for the winch.

    I haven't seen a coupon in forever...that's excellent, though! I had a gift card earlier this year that I was trying to use and I couldn't find a coupon on their website to use. That's tremendous, regardless.

    in Salem? I don’t know about that. Would make sense - good hub for the surrounding areas. I figured they’d want something closer to the airport though.

    sorry, no, Hudson. Both towns have been booming in the last 5-8 years apparently

    Hudson has that giant shopping complex with Cabelas now. Plus Rail Trail Flatbreads and New City Creamery....

    Hudson ma, yes. We just went there Saturday to check out camping stuff. Stopped at the Medusa beer garden for a pint before dinner. I grew up there on the Bolton line before any of that existed. I was, however, talking about Hudson NH, next to Nashua where they’re building Amazon near the old Sams club and Golf course. Both towns have come a long way in the past few years.
    Wish my sleepy little town would welcome more business on that empty 140 stretch going toward Milford. If you haven’t checked out the new Brewhouse in the center of town yet, they have some really good beers.

    Hudson NH? Does 3 go through Hudson?I lived right there and never really went that way. Trying to figure out which exit 2. But if it is on 3 that make sense. Can fuel the demand for the 495 stretch that’s booming with millennial sardine cans.

    They are literally building Amazons everywhere...
    Amazon is going to take over the world:bananadead:
    I feel bad for all the mom and pop stores.
    I'm pretty sure people are going to be grocery shopping through them soon.
