I used my 3 ton chain hoist to lift the rear of a Dodge dually recently to install spring helpers. It never strained lifting the wheels several inches off the floor and the truck has that big duel wheel rear axle and a fifth wheel trailer hitch for a goose neck trailer installed in the bed.

We need a report on that engine! I assume that's the new replacement for their "Greyhound" line of engines and I for one would be very interested in hearing about them.

need the truck

our local HF had a parking lot sale.we made a quick trip to town in the Toyota MR 2, I wanted to get the $ 99 engine for the small roto-tiller, the Wife saw the tool specials and said lets get the teen- aged grandsons tools for christmas, they don't need any more video games. we left with 2 chopping carts and she had the engine on her lap as we drove to the daughters house to leave some stuff until later.

Steel Another good deal I found there was the electric chain saw chain sharpener. For the $25 I spent, it was a steal.

Steel I ended up going to their parking lot sale today. I picked up on of the red US General tool carts. I must say that for $159 it's a great deal and should be a great addition to my shop.

I was looking for something smallish to keep next to the lift instead of pushing my cabinet over every time I'm underneath the car. I must say this will be a perfect fit for just that and you can't beat the price!! Plus it will give me another reason to buy more tools!!!

What a goof (which is being nice on my part). I wonder if things will change.



On the bright side:
Labor Day Super Sale (August 19 to September 5th) and Parking Lot Sale (August 26 to 28)

Around the time these restrictions were first advertised, one of the assistant managers at the local HF went off on a rant when I tried using the 20% coupon on the cheapo welder for $99.99. He kept complaining nonstop as he stepped outside to help me load my stuff. According to him, the original owner had turned the business to his hard-partying son, who then proceeded to kick his dad out completely. Supposedly the partying cost the company so much, they had to put those restrictions on the coupons to recover their losses. According to him, they (the brass) were also cutting back on employee hours and stalling on hiring during Christimas time.

No idea how true this be...
