The summer's almost over, but you wouldn't know it, stepping outside. As the heat persists, so do bugs, thirsty gardens, weeds, dirt-splattered recreati0nal toys, dusty windows, etc.-- all perfect reasons to keep a One Stop Gardens 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer in the garage.
As attested by Harbor Freight customers, the durable 4-gallon backpack sprayer works great in the garden, spraying water, fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide, soil conditioner, kelp solutions and weed killer.

As deer hunters are fully aware, the game have already started hitting the crops, preparing for the winter ahead. Many hunters anticipate the season by creating food plots-- cover crops planted for the express purpose of attracting and holding the deer (soybean and clover are both favorites)-- which means they need to keep the area clear of weeds, grass and other noxious growth. The 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer is perfect for transporting and spreading the weed & grass killer to the area.
Needless to say, the list of uses for the backpack sprayer ends with the imagination. You can use it to spray down dusty campsites, balconies, high-sitting wasp nests, sandy kids at the beach, out-of-reach sheds, fence lines, and so much more! And, at such a low price, there's no excuse not to get one!
So you want to start a garden, eh? You’ve waited years for that moment where you have the space in your yard to do it. Or maybe you’ve just volunteered for a community garden but you haven't a garden tool to your name? Well Harbor Freight Tools is here to help!
Garden tools can be broken down into two basic categories: tools for working the soil / planting and tools for maintaining your plants.
Soil and Planting Tools:
Round-point shovel - this shovel is made for loosening and moving soil and digging planting holes
Manure fork - the name is a bit daunting but historically speaking manure was fertilizer and something was needed to move this around. This tool is also useful for aerating your compost pile
Garden rake - this is great fro breaking up smaller clumps of dirt and working soil amendment / fertilizer into the top of a garden bed
Garden Maintenance Tools:
Bypass pruner - you need at least one good bypass pruner for routine plant maintenance such as deadheading roses, shaping shrubs, or cutting off that annoying branch growing in exactly the wrong spot. It’s nice to have to them in several sizes for larger or smaller jobs, but an 8-inch pruner should suffice most of the time
Snips - these are necessary for reaching into tight spaces to snip off tiny twigs
Loppers - these are used for removing branches
Pruning saws - when branches are too big for loppers you'll need a pruning saw to take them down
Garden sprayer - the best way to disseminate plant food or pest control (organic of chemical)
Gloves - of course! Don't forget these. You'll need to protect your hands from thorns and insects an other things that might be lurking in the soil
As you continue to work on your garden, you'll get a feel for these tools and may find other nifty gadgets that will help you out. But for now you've got a good starter kit to get you going and all at the ridiculously low prices that you can only find at Harbor Freight Tools.

Whether you're a camper, survivalist, or just someone who likes to be prepared for emergencies, a magnesium fire starter makes a worthy addition to your toolbox or camping bag. Fire-starting is one of the basic activities performed during camping and emergency situations, necessary for cooking, heating and lighting.
While modern day devices like electric-igniters and butane lighters are convenient, they are prone to failure. The trigger switches on electric fire-starters can break, butane lighters can easily crack and even waterproof matches can break. This is where a magnesium fire starter comes into play.
This waterproof fire starter serves as its own tinder and can produce a flame under damp conditions. The tinder lasts an incredibly long time. As a compact fire starter, it takes up practically no room at all, leaving plenty of space in your camping bag for other worthy essentials, like this 12 LED hand crank lantern.
In survival situations, you'll want this simple, compact accessory with you at all times to get a fire going even in damp weather. The fire it generates is extremely hot and will ignite even damp kindling. It comes complete with its own striker which creates sparks when struck against the firesteel.
When it comes to finding a portable and reliable method for starting fires, Harbor Freight has you covered. Our simple fire starter requires no electricity, no messy fuel refills, and no special waterproofing.
A magnesium fire starter is a must-have for all emergency preparedness kits, survival kits, and camping bags. If you're the type who always needs a “plan b”, this will be a great tool for you!
