Choose from 6 positions for height adjustment depending on the length of your grass, and use the battery-operated mower for up to 45 minutes. It comes with a dual fast charger so you can get mowing quickly even if your machine is low on power. The handles also fold in which makes for much more compact storage, plus it has a rear bag and mulching attachment.

 

 

 

Toro SnowMaster 724 Gas Snow Blower

If you’re still shoveling snow, save your arms, back, and time by investing in a snow blower that’ll push snow up to 45 feet away. With just a start of a button, you can use this to clear 6-10 inches of snow in larger driveways with 6-12 cars at a time. It breaks up snow quickly and you can change the direction of the chute quickly. And since it’s so easy to handle, almost any adult can use this.

 

 

 

DEWALT 20V MAX 125 mph Battery Handheld Blower Tool

Another tool that will save you time and pain in your back! This leaf blower comes with a concentrator nozzle you can use to push leaves up to 125 MPH so you clear your yard, deck, steps, and driveway quickly. It’s quiet and has few emissions, plus it’s super easy to hold so you can get the job done quickly and quietly – plus it is battery operated so you don’t have to carry cords around while you’re blowing leaves.

 

 

 

BLACK+DECKER 4V MAX* Cordless Screwdriver with LED Light

screwdriver

This is a great tool in general, but especially if you have any pain in your hands or arms while using a screwdriver. This one comes with a built-in flashlight so you can work in dark spaces, and has multiple pivoting positions so you can even use it in hard-to-reach ones. It comes with a rechargeable battery and screwdriver bits so you’ll be ready to go.

 

 

 

Klein Tools Digital Electronic Level and Angle Gauge

level angle guage

Say goodbye to the torpedo levels that use bubbles to determine if you’re hanging something straight, and get this electronic level that also determines angles. It measures 0-90 and 0-180 degree ranges and it has a magnetic base to make it easier to measure angles while working with metal. Since it’s electronic, you can save your measurement so you don’t lose your spot and it makes it easier to measure more than one spot at a time.

 

 

 

BLACK+DECKER Line Laser, Auto-leveling with Stud Finder

stud finder level

This is a favorite tool in our house because it not only has a level but includes an electronic stud finder. If you don’t have a use for measuring angles, the previous product we shared may not be as handy as this one – which uses laser light to mark straight, level lines. Plus you can identify if there are studs in the wall before you try and hang something up straight – so it’s the perfect two-in-one solution.

 

 

 

Holikme 4Pack Drill Brush Power Scrubber Cleaning Brush

Power scrubbers will change your cleaning game, especially when it comes to your bathroom or kitchen. These particular power scrubber heads come in a pack of four, and they’ll fit most drills so you can clean different surfaces. This makes cleaning tiles, grout, your shower, corners, and more, much easier and quicker.

 

 

 

LED Flashlight Waterproof Gloves – Practical Durable Fingerless Gloves
