For US$129.00 I could purchase one a year for a few years!

I understand it's not as good as the Honda, but still only $129.00.

My brother used to work for Harbor Frieght at the home office. He said the company philosophy is basically one use tools, or "a hammer for a woman who wants to hang a picture'.

I have never believed you need to buy the most expensive tool, but I do believe you should try to buy quality. The idea you can buy a new one each year and come out ahead is a false economy in my opinion. Things never fail when it is easiest for you.

Sing to a sailor's courage, Sing while the elbows bend,
A ruby port your harbor, Raise three sheets to the wind.
