The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Re-reviews: Tools, Part 2

Garden and water tools:

5 starsTC1840H Garden Cart - I would recommend this cart to anyone.  We've ridden it hard and put it to bed wet, and still it keeps right on hauling all of our household and garden supplies.

5 starsRidgid 1 HP Sump Pump - This is our well pump, and it keeps right on pumping like a dream!

5 starsThousand gallon tank - Still plugging right along, making our life easier.

5 starsTrake - I'd like to give this tool six stars, but it would mess up my rating system.  The trake makes weeding a joy!

4 starsHeavy hauler - The heavy hauler continues to hold up under serious abuse.  The only downside is that it's hard to maneuver by hand --- keep it hitched up to the golf cart or your lawn tractor and you'll be in good shape.

4 starsMintcraft garden sprayer - A competent gadget for the price.  For under $20, what would you expect?

4 starsKink-free flex hose adapter - still keeping our well hose kink-free many months later.
