The name sounds so exciting, and then you get to the last word. And while it's true that pruning bushes, stems, and flowers isn't exactly the most exciting way to pass the time, it's also true that the Fiskars Quantum Pruner is among the best ways to do it. Capable of handling growths up to 1 inch in diameter, it also features adjustable tension that adapts to your hand strength and the material, a precision-ground European steel blade with a coating that keeps it from getting covered with sap, and a lightweight aluminum handle with comfortable — and sustainable — cork pads.
Most tool kits include things like screwdrivers, knives, sockets, wrenches, and other things to help you put stuff together and/or tear it apart. The MacGyver Tool Kit is different. Like its name suggests, it's filled with common items that can be used to fix a wide range of problems, from stopping a leak to building a homemade rocket. Okay, so we're not so sure about that one, but we are sure you can find something to do with the bobby pin, match, rubber band, bubble gum, birthday candle, paper clip, and other "tools" you'll inside.
With spring just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about getting your long-neglected yard in shape — before you know it, all sorts of green stuff, some of which you don't want to see, will be coming up from the ground. And with the Ego Lithium-Ion String Trimmer you can tackle those weeds quietly, and without all the fuss usually associated with gas-powered trimmers. Featuring a 56-volt lithium-ion battery, this trimmer can run for up to 45 minutes on a single charge, letting you forget about heading down to the gas station to top up your can. Its straight shaft is ergonomic and comfortable, with an integrated trigger that makes trimming comfortable, while dual lines and a 12-inch cutting swath makes any job easier.
