I run a small engine repair shop and I work on a lot of chainsaws. I needed to be able to sharpen the chains. Well, the lowest cost quality sharpener I can find is a $200.00 Oregon. I can't afford that right now but I had to have something NOW. So I had no choice but to take a chance on the absolute cheapest sharpener I could find. So I bought the Buffalo Tools sharpener. You can't imagine how shocked I was when I realized it actually works! I've sharpened several chains with it and it works GREAT! First off, DON'T BE AN IDIOT. It's PLASTIC, the threaded parts are PLASTIC, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN ANYTHING THAT IS PLASTIC!!! Have I stressed that enough? Most of the bad reviews I've seen are from people that over tighten everything and break or strip out the plastic. Take it easy with this thing and you'll be fine. One thing I noticed is the clear plastic guard you have to look through is thick and distorts what you're looking at. Take it off and throw it away. You also have to turn the motor off between each cut. This is no big deal because where you drape your hand over the top of the unit to pull it down your fingers rest right on the on/off buttons and they click on and off very easily. After one chain you'll be doing this automatically. For under $40.00 I couldn't be happier. Some day I'll get me a good Oregon sharpener but until then this will do just fine.

Assembly is time consuming and definitely requires more than one person for most of it unlike the exaggerated reviews of some buyers. Especially if you don't do this often which I would imagine most people don't. When built it is sturdy but when storing thus before assembling, be careful, the plastic bends easily. Also keep in mind the additional cost for lumbar or concrete for the foundation.

Excellent quality, shipped quick and in two packages, I thought the floor was rubber coated not plastic.

I purchased this tool to install Shaw Epic 3/8 inch thick engineered hardwood flooring. Unlike most flooring that is installed by stapling through the top of the tongue, this particular flooring requires stapling through the lower groove. This means that the guide needs to sit just about 1/8 inch off the floor to drive the staple in the correct position. Unfortunately, there are very few tools fit this specification, and the ones that do cost $*** and up. The less expensive adjustable staplers (including this one) seem to have a minimum setting of 1/2 inch. Given the great price of this tool, I decided to take a chance to see if I could adapt it to work. I was easily able to modify the guide by grinding about an 1/8 inch off the metal part of it, and then I extended the adjustment slots in the plastic part. Once I did this, the guide shoe fit perfectly onto the lower section of the groove in the flooring planks and the staples were driven correctly. The exhaust cap on top of the tool is metal, so I am able to use a rubber mallet to give a gentle tap there for seating the planks, then a pull of the trigger drives a staple. I've laid a few hundred square feet of flooring so far, and the tool has performed flawlessly. I am very happy with this tool, especially given the great price. Note that it also comes with a standard guide head, so when not needed for flooring, it can be used as a regular pneumatic stapler.

All essential tools available. Electric driver not powerful enough to use on woods and plastic; must charge frequently. Needs better inside support brackets (plastic) to hold tools in place while storing. Box of 'tic-tacks' and screw drivers on either end kept on falling out.

Bought this for my husband who is a carpenter/builder. He put his sheetrock tools in it. He likes everything except the plastic handles.

First the pros regarding the 17" Sun Joe. 1. it does a very good job of cutting the grass blades evenly. 2. it is very light weight especially for an elderly individual. 3. being electric it is relatively quiet. 4. it is easy to empty out grass catcher. 5. does not take much room once stored. 6. fairly easy to maneuver. 7. LOVE the push-start button. Now for the cons. 1. having to finagle with the cord! 2. grass catcher is absolutely useless...keeps blowing debris back to you and all over the place through the flap....UNLESS...you rig something up to hold the flap down. I took a short bungee cord attached to the small handle on the cover and the other end, going over the flap & attached to the top of the grass catcher. 3. you cannot back the machine up from a tight corner unless you lift the back wheel up and pull machine using only the front wheels. The plastic flap is an added annoyance when trying to back up. This may be relatively easy for a taller individual, but at 5' 1", it is definitely hard for me! 4. THE MACHINE HEAD SHOULD BE CLEANED OUT REGULARLY! The cover should be removed and all debris removed as much as possible, often, to keep the moist grass pieces from damaging the internal electrical components as the only cover the "heart" of the machine has is an open top plastic cylinder around the electrical parts. I am no electrician but I think they could have come up with some sort of appropriate cover for this sensitive area. Over all despite the short comings, I do like the Sun Joe 17" mower as it is lightweight fairly easy to handle and does a very good job on my mid sized yard.

I really like the shed. The plastic needs to be thicker where it screws together.

I rated the mower as 'good' because I have used it for only 4 weeks. If it continues to work as well as it has, I would bump it up to excellent/5-stars. Comments: - it's light and easy to maneuver - the body and including the mower deck around the cutting area is made of plastic. It seems to be thick and strong where it needs to be. My Homelite electric mower had a metal mower deck that started to break away from the motor, apparently due to corrosion near. I consider the plastic deck of the Mo-Joe mower to be a positive in this regard. - The inside of the cutting are is smooth -- no pieces sticking out that can accumulate clippings and lead to clogging. Mowers with side chutes often tend to accumulate grass. -The mowers's only weakness is that the maximum cutting height is 2.8 inches. I like to keep my grass on the longer side. - It does a good job cutting the grass. The 13 amp motor combined with a modest 17" cutting width helps it power though most situations without stressing the motor. It did slow down when I was cutting grass that had grown a couple of weeks. This is one reason I would have liked the option of a longer cutting length.
