I like the one I bought. However it's a Werner & only rated for 225 lbs I think. I'm sure it's not OSHA approved. It is fairly light and easy to move though

Another score at HD rental

I picked up these bad boys the other day for a total of $835. The saw was 475 (with blade), and the vac was 360. Pretty happy seeing as they are well over $2k for the set brand new.

For me it was a cost factor, but also convenience factor. We do bigger remodels where we will still have 30 yrd dumpsters dropped off, but this will be great for bathrooms, decks, and when I don't...

Bought myself a new toy

Bought myself a dump trailer today. Had to share with someone, as my wife isn't quite as excited as I am. Got a 7x14 PJ. Can't wait to put it to work (not looking forward to scratching it).

Went through my first tank of gas, averaged 15.04 miles per gallon. Get 500 miles per tank. It will be nice not to have to stop & fill up so often.

2nd vote for SW Armorseal. It's usually not out in the front of the store on display, it's an industrial coating that you have to ask for.

I can handle these short comings
1) extension cord :whistling
2) I ordered a 55" & 118" rail, so no need for connectors
