Makita Heated Jackets at GIE 2018

MAkita Heating Jackets

Winter is coming, and we dread those days where we need to work out in the cold weather. However, the new Makita heated jackets that were shown at the GIE Expo look like a cure for what has traditionally ailed us.

Makita Heated Jackets

These heated jackets come in a variety of flavors: some have removable sleeves, some exist as vests, some have the Mossy Oak camo pattern, and some offer high visibility.

The Makita heated jackets have three settings for customizable control of your heating situation, as well as a variety of heating zone formats that depend on the model that you’re working with (chest, shoulders, pockets, across the back). All of the heated jackets run off of the Makita 18V LXT Battery platform.

We’ve got an exciting Heated Jacket Shootout publishing soon, so keep an eye out for that article when it hits the ProToolReviews site .

2 Cycle vs 4 Cycle Engines – Which is Better?

With the advent of newer trimmer and lawn products that include 4-cycle engines, we are often asked whether these products are better than their 2-cycle counterparts (literally: “Which is better, 2-stroke or 4-stroke?”) The answer may be simpler than you think, but first it’s important to understand the differences between the two technologies. Each have their strengths, though we wouldn’t consider them fairly matched – at least not for the purposes of portable lawn care products.

Proper Lawnmower Care and Maintenance

You want to have a beautiful, well-manicured lawn, but that doesn’t happen all on its own. To make that happen, you need a reliable and powerful lawnmower. Of course, lawnmowers aren’t cheap. You don’t want to have to replace your mower every year or so. But that’s exactly what will happen if you don’t practice proper lawnmower maintenance. If you take good care of your mower, it will take good care of your lawn for many years to come.
