When the going gets tough, the tough guys bring out the man tools.
Unless you’re a glutton for punishment and enjoy doing things the hard way, there’s nothing more satisfying than bringing out the man toys.
Reduce a pile of logs to firewood in no time with the powerful hydraulic log splitter. Exerting tonnes of pressure onto quivering logs and even capable of splitting two logs at a time. The log splitter is the real king of the forest and will save you hours.
No need to feel like a donkey pushing and pulling your granddaddy’s lawnmower all day long. Mowing lawns, big lawns, should be fun and involve petrol mowers you can ride around on. Or take it a step further and drive them around a racetrack.
Unless you have arms like Popeye, using a manual screwdriver to put something together is going to take you much longer than a power drill. Power drills are flexible, noisy and make holes fast — just watch what you’re doing especially when posing for photographs.
