My wife hates Harbor Freight. That's all I am allowed to say.

There are no good deals at HF. They sell low end junk for the most part.

I'd agree with that. Their stuff I would never dream of using in a professional setting. Yet at the same time I have never broken anything or had anything fail on me. I have a few floor jacks from them and never had a problem. Probably because I use jack stands! I have a welder from Harbor Freight that hasn't ever given me issues, and some other odds and ends. There's a limit to any tool, I guess...

I use the big wrench set everyday at work. I think they were about $20-$30 for a 1 5/16 -2" Combo wrench set. I bet there are 100 of those floating around our shop. Everything else I have bought from that places sucks big time.

Crazy talk! There are some great things there, you just have to know what to get.. Course there prices seem to be getting higher, and coupons less useful.

You gotta be very selective when buying harbor freight. I will always say it's my second favorite place to buy tools for what it is. I haven't had many bad buys from there cause I know what to avoid. I don't buy air couplers from there cause I don't want to be annoyed by the hiss. I don't buy air tools from there cause they suck and all bog down. I would never buy a compressor from there or welder, but I don't mind their welding cart. Seems to be ok. Wouldn't buy sockets, ratchets, screwdrivers, or drill bits, blades.


I love their $12 tear drop mallets. I got both sizes and love them. I like their $3 pen scriber. Works like a charm and where can you get that for $3? I have the spring loaded punch for $3. That's a $20 tool elsewhere. SOME of their welding clamps are ok. The deep throat one sucks. Their porta powers are ok

Ditto on the no Air tools. I bought a $ cheap plastic air gun. They are just like the $20 Vaculla one I have been using for 15 years. First pull of an air gun it blew up in my hand. I have not been back

Your loss, the "Earthquake" line of impact wrenches are real brutes and hold up well. I have had mine for several years now and it is as powerful as when it was new, a farmer friend of mine has a 1" drive "Earthquake" that they use almost everyday and it too delivers some serious power without any problems. These things are knock-offs of the IR "Thunder Gun" but at a fraction of the price, quite powerful and hold up well.

No? How about the AMERICAN built US Generals? If you are shopping for a compresor of this class and price range you can go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy Chinese junk or for the same money or less you can buy the US Generals at HF. These are IMHO the best deal for the money anywhere and people who pass them up for the Chinese outfits from other places are making a big mistake. As we have mentioned a dozen times lately these are rebadged AMERICAN built Belaire compressors and just can't be beat for the price, American built except for the really good quality Italian built pump.

i could not have said it better!
you just need to be very careful what you get there, and think about how and how often it will be used.

I have been wondering about those things, I am in need of a new one now but had not heard anything about them one way or the other.

Anyone else have one of these?

i have a couple of them, (50 and 25 ft.)
if you get them on sale they are pretty cheap.
the hose isn't that great (looks like its weather checking/dry rotting) where its made to bend tightly at the base of the reel.
but its been a few years and still no problems.
i figured i would just change the hose down the road.
