This was a great find and now it is discontinued. Damn! Wish Harbor Freight would bring back Collapsible Waterproof Bucket-97697. My friends and I belong to a hunting Club and have found numerous uses for the little collapsible blue bucket which fits in a pouch that utilizes a drawstring.

I bought the latest model of this (part 60380) for $101 and kept it a couple of weeks. I took it back, went to Lowes and bought a Kobalt Lithium Ion 20V cordless impact for $280. The extra money was worth it to me, for my needs and because I could afford it. Saying that, however, this wrench did work adequately. There isn't anything "wrong" with it. For the money, it is definitely a bargain if you need something to keep in the car or around the house to take off lug nuts or lawnmower blades. I just wanted something more powerful, which the Kobalt definitely is. The Kobalt delivers every bit of its rated 350 foot pounds of torque. I doubt this harbor freight wrench delivers anywhere near its rated 330 foot pounds. However, it does work for common automotive (lug nuts) and around the house tasks. I drove a five inch long, 5/8 hex lag screw into a landscape timber with it. Struggled a bit, but it did it. Don't know if it would do 10 straight, but it did one. On my car it eventually got a rusted sway bar link nut off, but at a salvage yard, the Kobalt blew a rusted shock nut off in a split second off a 20 year old junk car. If you want or need that kind of power, the Harbor Freight isn't for you. I would recommend this to someone if they know and are ok with its limited capabilities, but it didn't suit me specifically.

Use a 25% off coupon and this is a very good value. It needs a tune-up when it comes out of the box. The stand is flimsy but will get you by if you use your head. The USA made bi-metal saw blade(supercut brand item#97119) that HF sells for this is the first thing to do, when you assemble the saw. When adjusted properly this saw cuts straight. I added a hydraulic downfeed and custom vise l- and T- handles and thumbscrews for length stop and cover.Many how-to's on the net.
Make a custom stand and this is a great homeowner tool.

Bought a pair of these years ago just because they were on sale and I might have a use for them someday. That day was yesterday. Removing a tempered glass greenhouse panel (sliding glass door glass), I needed a way to pull it out of the space it had been in for 30 or so years. Working by myself, so no one to push the glazing out for me to catch it. No way to get ahold of the edges.

For once, I knew exactly where something was. Grabbed the two suction cups, still in the boxes, cleaned the glass off a little and they worked perfectly. Jiggled and pulled the glass a bit and lifted it right out. Probably 8 years sitting on the shelf, there was no visible deterioration of the rubber, they looked brand new, which they were. Glad I had these around.

I bought mine 10 2011. In addition to the batteries included I added a 6 volt 4.5 AH battery from Amazon in line with the batteries.. It still works. In very cold weather the motion detector does work well.

Mine was installed inside a shed so the light itself has not been exposed to weather.
