Keen Utility Baltimore Work Boot Review


…y Baltimore work boot are what originally caught my attention while at the World of Concrete Show in January 2018. Available in a soft toe or safety toe boot, the Baltimore offers flexibility, regardless of the environment. The question remained, would it deliver the classic un-comfort of a work boot or be the “best-in-class comfort” they claim to be. Fitment When it comes to boot size, I’m a pretty standard men’s 11-1/2, but my feet tend to like…

Greenworks Pro Pressure Washer Review


…in the first pass. We also used this tip for some slimy, black bits on our concrete slab as well.

These weren’t in terrible shape in the first place, but a good spring cleaning never hurts. This tip does a good job at blasting away any accumulated dirt from the walls, leav…


Troy Bilt Pressure Washer Review


…s that were on the surface. Once again we pre-washed the driveway with the concrete cleaning solution. The results were the same as the house, and the drive way looks new again. We did have to work a little harder at the concrete since this is not the most powerful pressure washer; we had to go over some areas several times before we got the drive way cleaned to a level we liked. As for overall build quality and performance, what can we say; you g…


Best Backpack Blower Shootout


…the unpleasant odor. We wrestled with the correct medium for testing real world scenario with our blowers. Fallen tree leaves seem to be too easy, so we thought about using wet grass on concrete or asphalt. With most lawn Pros now mulching their lawns, it’s hard to find a truckload of grass clippings. We settled for a better idea. Using a 50-pound bag of wet playground sand for each test, we evenly spread the bag over a 6-feet by 6-feet area, on…

Briggs & Stratton Amplifi Hose Powering System Review


…garden hose into a quasi pressure washer. While it won’t take paint off of concrete, it will add additional water pressure to your home’s garden hose and allow you to do some enhanced tasks. We used it on a variety of projects and found it to be a nifty system that is only limited by its price. Convenience seems to be the key here and, once configured, the Amplifi seems to have that in spades. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS Briggs & Stratton Amplifi Buil…
