A virtual rainbow of color, the Opus Garden Ballet dragonfly wind chime features delicate movement and a chorus of notes. All the chime's parts move independently, even the dragonfly's body and wings, for an eye-catching flutter. The sun shape at the bottom and the whimsical swirl at the top catch the breeze to set the chimes in motion, and the brass bells sound five different notes when struck. Designed for decorators with a bold palette, the chime ranges from deep purple to brilliant orange to metallic pink in color. Rust-resistant and ready to hang, it measures about 30 inches long, weighs just 2 pounds, and comes with a chain and hook. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful addition to my garden...
This wind chime is very large and sturdy. I was quite impressed with the colors and the "mobile-like" look of this wind chime. It is unique and make gorgeous soft chimes. A great gift for yourself or others. Nice quality & a great buy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Unique
After much searching, I finally found a wind chime that not only looks beautiful, but has a soft, delightful sound.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Beautiful in the Garden
The Opus Garden Ballet Dragonfly Wind Chime is simply beatiful to look at and listen to while you're having your morning coffee on the terrace.

Make sure to bring it in during the winter months so you can enjoy it year after year.

The sounds of nature are sweet, but the music of chirping birds, chattering squirrels, and rustling leaves is even sweeter when accompanied by Woodstock's Gregorian alto computer-tuned wind chimes. These silver chimes play medieval alto notes inspired by the Gregorian chants of Europe. Company founder Garry Kvistad has developed an advanced method of tuning used on every Woodstock chime: each tube is analyzed digitally with a microphone under the tube measuring the frequency, and cutters are instructed to remove just the right amount of material to produce the most precise tuning possible. The result is a purer, more harmonious sound. All Woodstock wind chimes are made in the USA from nonendangered hardwoods treated to endure season after season of outdoor use. Woodstock prides itself on being a socially responsible company, explaining that "through the sale of our chimes we proudly support the arts, as well as many environmental and humanitarian causes." Add a hint of Gregorian mystery to your yard or garden while contributing to the harmony of the earth. --Ariel Meadow Stallings ... Read more

  • Measures 5-1/4 by 5-1/4 by 29 inches
  • Precision tuned using a sophisticated digital analysis
  • Lifetime tuning guarantee
  • Handcrafted in the USA and weather protected
  • Use only non-endangered North American hardwoods

5-0 out of 5 stars a bit of heaven.
We have 3 woodstock chimes outside our bedroom window. Our neighbors keep thier bedroom window open just to hear the chimes.The peaceful harmnious sounds, are truly what heaven must sound like.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasent sound
I got the whole set of Woodstock Percussion Gregorian windchimes from the Soprano, to the Baritone.

Besides, it's weather resist, I own the original Olympic sound for over 6 years and still good as new. Definitely worth the money and long term enjoyment.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wind Chime Enthusiast, TN
I recently received the Woodstock Percussion GAS Gregorian Alto Wind Chime. As the owner of several windchimes I must say this is my favorite. The sound is absolutely mesmorizing. The harmonic peaceful tones sound in the slightest breeze. I am ordering other chimes that harmonize with the Alto. If I only had one chime - this would be the one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Lovely Music
We have these hanging outside of our front door along with their soprano counterpart. We enjoy ringing them each time we go out. They make such cheerful music in a major key to leave and return by! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Gardening Tool
I love this bench! It is easy to assembly for anyone with easy to follow instructions, no tools required. The bench is great for indoors or outdoors. I use it all year around, rain or shine, cold or hot. It also easy to clean, just hose it off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Got a house? You should probably buy this.
I once heard on the radio that when a man buys a house and moves out of an apartment, he buys two things: a refrigerator and a barbecue grill.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Suncast GB3000 is the third item on his list.

Suncast calls it a gardening bench. I think that name doesn't do the product justice.

As others have already pointed out, this convenient cart is terrific as a barbecue "side-cart" or as a bar for a party.

In my case, it is also a great rolling workbench -- I had to replace a broken part in my car's driver-side door. The large table top and additional shelves in this cart made it easy for me to spread out my tools and the replacement part. The "tub" tray was perfect for holding on to the screws and bolts that I had to remove to get to the broken part.

And, of course, it's useful for doing work around the yard. The plastic cart washes easily so it's not too bad to switch it use between gardening cart, workbench, and barbecue side-cart.

Is is reasonably sturdy and is easy to assemble. It takes only about 5 minutes, and you don't need any tools. The vertical supports are rubber-coated steel, so it's strong.

It turns out that you have some flexibility when assembling the cart -- the tray slots can be toward the "back" (over the wheels) or toward the "front" (under the handles), and you can mount them so that the trays come out in the left/right direction, or in the front/back direction. The smaller upper-shelf can also be placed either toward the back, or the front.

BTW, I originally bought one as a father's day present; but got one for myself after I saw how nice it was. If you have a house, I think this makes a good purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Item! Easy to put together!!
This is an excellent product! I put it together in 15 minutes and no tools were needed. Very simple! It is heavy duty and sturdy. It has a lot of room to work and different ways to design the cart to make it work for you the way you want it too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Around 10 years old and still going!
I got my Suncast Gardening Bench for Mother's Day around 10 years ago. It has been outside the entire time and although the winters can get very cold here, it is in great shape. I love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars My great bargain!!
After reading other reviews and having looked unsuccessfully for a practical bench on which to pot and trim my bonsai trees, I just bought the Suncast cart at my local garden center for $$$$$ on clearance. It was a snap to put together, and it fits perfectly next to the grill on my patio. There it can do double duty as a barbecue cart and potting bench. I had looked at many wood ones online, but Wisconsin weather is hard on wood outdoors, and I'm looking to lower my maintenance chores, not increase them.
This was the perfect answer at a bargain price. I highly recommend this product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great; weight limit & hardware
This is a beautiful, sturdy, well-designed product. At first I thought it would look silly in a New England apartment, but then I sat in it and stopped caring. It's that comfortable. It's also fairly unobstrusive, and in a pinch (toddlers visiting? landlord dropping by?) it's easy to substitute a hanging plant or just unhook the chain from the ceiling altogether.

As far as safety, if you install it correctly you have nothing to worry about; yes, it will hold two people at once. :-) You'll need to buy a length of chain at the hardware store -- ask for 3/16" link, 750-lb test, and get one or two S-hooks that fit through a link. The chair itself is rated to support up to 500 lbs. Finally, a 2" x 4" ceiling joist will support 450 lbs over a 10-foot span before it begins to bow or buckle. Recommended . . . enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars MY WIFE LOVES IT
My wife and kids love the chair, but I don't care for it that much. I thought the chair was a little bit constricting. Assembly was easy. Give yourself alot of room for it, the base is huge.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but doesn't last outside
I bought one for my wife for Christmas 2 years ago, and it was inside most of the time for the first year, and outside most of the second year, and the small ropes in the seat broke and the chair developed large holes as it raveled apart.
We live in Florida, but it was under a big oak tree, so it was shaded all day.
Ropes also got dirty looking fast.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but not comfortable
Overall it is nicely made chair, but everytime when I sit in it, it made me feel like I am sitting in an airplane's economy class seat. My arm movement is very limited and my feet dangles in not so comfortable position. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars nice product -but bonehead warranty
I am happy with my deck box too. 60 bucks at warehouse club if you have the energy. But, unlike claim here of 5 year limited warranty, the papers enclosed state that box is warranted against defect "through time of purchase." Even if it wasn't out of warranty by the time you got it home, you'd have to pay shipping to and from Suncast (probably 60 bucks too!) to cover them selling you something broken as you bought it. I wrote to them via email to ask for an explanation and they didn't bother to reply. So, if it isn't right, take it back right away. Or, consider Rubbermaid's competing and similar product- they have Much better customer service which will matter if you need it. Nice box-bonehead company.

5-0 out of 5 stars dependable little box
i don't know about the people who complained, but it seems that they purchased this box for it's price, rather than look at the dimensions to match their seat cushions. they would have been happier buying the right product the first time.

this box is capable of holding all my pool supplies and yard stuff. the only thing i think would make it better was the ability to lock it (just because I keep my pool chemicals in it).

5-0 out of 5 stars Deluxe deck box
The deluxe deck box I ordered and received today is a wonderful product. Delivery was sooner then I anticipated and the price was excellant. Thanks for the free shipping. You now have a regular customer for life!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product!
I researched for a while for which deck box to buy and was NOT disappointed with this one I chose. The larger size was a good choice by me to store all my patio items. The box was VERY easy to assemble and the pieces snapped together very easily, solidly and without any tools! I would definitely buy another Suncast product in the future. No complaints from me! :-)

Amazon.com Review

The clear Hummingbird Paradise lantern feeder is well made, easy to use, and looks great in a tree or on the back patio. Made of redwood, brass, and etched glass, this tropical, fun feeder uses three copper-colored flowers to attract brilliant hummers. Because the wide base gives the birds plenty of room to land, you can hang the feeder just about anywhere. Filling the feeder is easy: simply flip it over, pop off the base, pour in a sugar solution (directions included), and quickly flip it back. Removing the base requires a bit of force, and you have to be careful not to damage the flowers when you grip, but, overall, this is a very solid, long-lasting feeder. ... Read more

  • 12 inches in height the feeder holds 375ml or 1 pint of nectar
  • Original etching by Gary Schrodt of three flying hummingbirds and tiger lilies
  • Cap and base are lathe turned by hand
  • Dish cover is solid brass with kiln fired powder coated copper flowers
  • Add enchantment and action to wildlife gardens with this lantern

4-0 out of 5 stars The glass is red
The bit about red colored solution being bad for the birds is true, but this particular feeder has a red-colored *bottle*. You should still put clear feeding solution in it.

I actually own a much older version of this product, which has a purple bottle and no etchings. Same thing though, and it still works well several years later. I don't find it easy to clean if you are not faithful about cleaning it though. The narrow neck of the bottle makes it hard to remove any residue that may build up.

But it's easy to use and looks really great. Worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Young backyard wildlife caretaker
This product is everything I was looking for. I wanted a RED feeder because red really does attract the hummingbirds & I refuse to use food coloring or anything other than 4 parts water to 1 part sugar to my feeders because anything else can make them sick. The feeder is a perfect size, I don't like the real big feeders because I change the nectar every 3 days & the big feeders just waste the nectar. This feeder is also very attractive & adds a unique look to the garden. The way the bottom is shaped allows the little hummingbirds to take a break & perch which is so cute to see! The feeder is also very easy to clean, I use a long bottle brush I bought from a dollar store & it works even in the smallest of spaces. I highly recommend this feeder especially if someone is trying to attract hummingbirds but hasn't yet- the red really catches their eye! Plant some red Bee Balm (latin name Monarda)near this feeder & they wont be able to stay out of your yard!

5-0 out of 5 stars Form & Function Meet
I have owned one of these feeders for several years, and I am pleased with its appearance and no-hassle care routine. The feeder is made from high quality materials and is well-crafted. I am confident that (as long as I don't drop it onto concrete of course - it's glass) it will last for many years. For the most part, feeders I see at my local chain pet store do not inspire me with the same confidence.

The shape makes it easy to clean with a long-handled bottle brush, unlike some bulbous or other creatively shaped feeders that, while decorative, would make cleaning a chore. (Keeping hummingbird feeders clean is important for the health of the birds.) I use Schrodt's brush, but it stands to reason that any long-handled bottle brush will do just fine.

As has been mentioned in other reviews, yes, it is more expensive, but if one intends to seriously pursue an interest in hummingbird-watching, this is a feeder that will last and whose unobtrusive beauty would enhance any area in which it is displayed.

5-0 out of 5 stars quite pretty and functional
This is a very pretty hummingbird feeder made with red glass so you don't need to color the solution. The etchings on the glass are pretty and it's easy to refill the feeder, which comes with instructions. It's expensive for a feeder but the quality is very good and I am happy with the purchase.

This feeder is paradise for Hummingbirds. I have owned one of these for more than ten years and it continues to look and function beautifully. I would recomment this to anyone who loves their bird friends. ... Read more

Using spinning brushes and human push power, the clever Hoover SpinSweep sweeper makes quick work of debris, clippings, sand, and dirt on flat outdoor surfaces. With no motor, cord, or batteries to fuss over, the sweeper's counter-rotating brushes kick up matter and whirl it into a generous collection bin. The cleaning path is a wide 21-inches--giving push brooms a run for their money--and the design means there is no need to wrestle with dust pans. Suitable for sidewalks, paths, patios, and garages, the SpinSweep is quiet, lightweight, and easy to control. Eight dial-controlled adjustable height levels accommodate a range of tasks and surfaces, and the collection bin pops out for quick and simple emptying. Equipped with comfortable grips and a metal handle, the handy SpinSweep hangs for storage. Hoover includes a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars works great cleaning pool deck
I had some doubts about buying this based on how it looks - but it is terrific. It used to take us about an hour to clean our relatively large pool deck of concrete pavers with a push broom - it now takes about 15 minutes with this tool and it does a better job. Well worth the purchase price

5-0 out of 5 stars Works on all kinds of textured surfaces
This thing is great, I'm so shocked that something so clever actually lives up to its description. I have several different huge areas around my house, a driveway the size of a basketball court (smooth surface)--worked great, a verandah with a small pebble surface--could never get it clean with those industrial brooms--spinsweep picked up sooo much grit and dirt I didn't even know was there-then finally as I live in Seattle, we have a textured coating on our decks for non-slip surface, great idea but a pain to keep swept, spinsweeper saved the day again. Also it's light weight! Helpful reminder: Make sure you follow directions and keep it stored with the undercarriage brushes upright so you don't wear them down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great by our pool! We have pavers...
Our patio is made up of pavers and I was not sure how this would work, but IT WORKS GREAT!! It picks up fine sand and rocks. My 2 year old even likes to push it around. It is easy to put together and easy to clean out. Much easier than sweeping.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome as always thanks Hoover
just recieved mine today...what an incredible machine. Even sucks up dead frogs!!! (have two cats) In 20 minutes I de-dirted my driveway, three large sidewalks, a carport floor, and a garage. Works just like the street sweepers without the noise. I highly recommend.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
This little sweeper is the best thing since sliced bread! I ordered one after seeing it mentioned in the gardening section of the paper, but was skeptical that it would really work as advertised. I have a large stable with a very wide concrete aisle that must be swept daily, so it gets some serious use. It works soooo good! The brushes pick up debris and dust and even the dead lizards the barn cats bring in. It is easy to push and easy to empty the container, so that you can dispose of the material where you want, without having to use the dustpan. It has cut my sweeping time down by 75% and does a better job than a broom.
My friends that have tried it have all loved it, and are going to order one too. Hoover needs to market this thing to horse owners!
I have also used it on my garage and patio with the same great results. ... Read more

Bounty Hunter's Tracker IV detector offers the excitement and profit of metal detecting at an accessible price, making it ideal for those just getting started. With a fully submersible, 8-inch Bounty D-Tech search coil, the Tracker IV features three different operating modes to help you hit pay dirt. Motion all-metals mode responds to any metals you sweep over, full discrimination mode rejects iron and other trash items, and tone discrimination alerts you with one or two audio pitches for different types of metals. The Tracker IV does not have the LCD that many of Bounty Hunter's other models boast, featuring instead a large Sensitivity Meter. Ground Trac, a feature that automatically balances the machine to the soil conditions, makes the Tracker IV a tremendous value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bounty Hunter Tracker IV - No Experience Necessary
I figured that any metal detector would find the '32 Chevy buried in my backyard, but I wanted to find coins, rings, and Civil War relics in my 5 acre woods. It took 5 minutes to assemble the Tracker IV and about 15 minutes to review the instruction manual. Round up a few coins, a gold ring, and some nails and run through the demonstration on page 5 of the manual. It will give you an idea of how different objects respond to the 3 detection modes.

I borrowed my wife's headphones (highly recommended) and headed for the woods. Within minutes I found beer cans, shotgun shells, nails. The detector will pinpoint an object close enough that you can dig it up with a few scoops of a garden trowel. On my second attempt I found a man's silver ring.

Tracker IV appears to be well constructed and a good value. I don't have any experience with other detectors, but I can't imagine that any are easier to use than this one. Tracker IV is a great choice for your kids to use, if they can get it away from you!

I bought one used for [$$$] on .... I started scanning my Girlfriend's yard (house built in 1940's) and immediately picked up all sorts of signals. After a day I became used to the different tones and began discriminating what to and not to dig. That day I found 3 spoons, one of them is silver, and 5 wheat pennies. The next day I searched a sledding hill and found about [$$$] in change. I think its a great deal for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's good, but.......
I collect rare bottle caps, and try to take care not to lose any of my collection. I was coming back from a convention recently and one of my collection boxes hopped out of the back of the pickup as I was crossing an old hump-back bridge, and fell into a small stream.

So I bought the metal detector to try to get my valuable collection back. This one said it is waterproof so I figured it might do the job.

Well, after three weeks of wading up and down the stream I have had mixed fortunes. A Celtic chalice, the silver cumtach (cover) from a medieval bible, two viking swords, a couple of daggers, a mound of celtic, roman and viking coins, an array of viking hacksilver, medieval broches and buckes from shoes and belts, delicately filigreed celtic gold jewellry and most notable of all (since the Romans never made it to Ireland) the metal fittings from eight complete and six incomplete sets of roman imperial legionnary armour.

OK, so I am famous now amongst scholars of the Romano-Celtic world. I have been awarded three honorary doctorate degrees for my finds, and I have been given freedom of the cities of Dublin and York, and I had to decline a Royal knighthood offered by the English Queen (I do have principles and I am an Irish Republican). But what is all this fame? I have lost a box of 200 bottle caps and not found a single one with the detector.

In that collection was a rare 1950's Kirin blue, a 1945 victory V double diamond crown cap and most valuable of all a Grolsch porcelain stopper from the first ever commercial batch. What does it profit a man to gain the world if he loseth his bottle cap collection?

If you buy the metal detector I hope you have more luck than me!

I bought this product for my 13 year old son's birthday, and he was thrilled. I was thrilled because it was easy to put together, works great over many different terrains, and is so easy to use, the whole family has enjoyed it! It is the perfect Tracker for us.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy to Use
The Bounty Hunter was exactly what I was looking for. My 11 year old son and I wanted to expore metal detecting together. I didn't want to invest a large amount of money in something that was too high tech or that he would lose interest in. I didn't want to spend too little and get a cheap product. This item was priced right and so far has proven to be a quality item. It was easy to assemble (maybe 5 minutes), takes 2 standard 9 volt batteries and is lightweight enough for my 11 year old to handle with ease. The shaft adjusts in height so when I finally get my turn, I can adjust it to fit me.

We are having a ball so far with it. We haven't found any high dollar finds yet, but the neighborhood kids have gone with us the last few days and made it a fun treasure hunt. In our search of a couple vacant lots, we have found 17 cents, lots of nails, an old bottle cap, a saw blade and other misc items. We plan on taking this into the mountains soon, as it is waterproof so you can look for gold in the rivers. We can't wait! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars False Flipper
This Squirrel Proof feeder is a great idea in theory. But they fail to tell you until you open the box and read the instructions that their Yankee Flipper doesn't work with Red Squirrels. I am now the proud owner of an expensive Red Squirrel feeder. Their claim of a Squirrel Proof feeder sounds like false advertising to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely works!
I have had my Yankee Flipper for more than 2 years now, and it works perfectly.I am almost disappointed that the Squirrels don't try anymore - except for the occasional rookie who quickly discovers that there is no food to be had here.

A couple of points I wanted to add to the other reviews:

1. Droll Yankees customer support is excellent. Some squirrel(s) managed to scratch or bite a small hole into the clear tube, right below the top of the feeder.One quick phone call, and a new feeder tube was in the mail to me at no cost.Impressive!

2. I initially charged the feeder while it was hanging on my deck, until the squirrels chewed up the cable where it plugs into the wall.Afterwards I bought two sets of NiMH batteries (Better than the NiCD that come with the feeder) and I charge them in a wall charger.This way I always have a fresh set ready, and changing them only takes a couple of minutes (unscrew three thumbscrews on the bottom of the feeder, swap batteries, replace screws).

It is a lot of money for a bird feeder, but well worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yankee Flipper has the answer!
I previously wrote that I had a squirrel that was able to lock up the ring. I contacted customer service and they were so professional and helpful to send me a replacement motor. Well the new one is stronger and faster and no squirrel can stop it! It is almost as awesome as Yankee Droll's customer service! I take back my 4 stars happily. Enjoy the show!

4-0 out of 5 stars perfect !
I revised this review because of the awesome service of Yankee Droll. The new flippers rule!

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfaction at last
OK, I'm an engineer.I even mounted sheet metal panels along the land and airborne assault routes the squirrels would use to get to the feeder.As a result the house looked like a battleship but the little robber-barons were still on the feeder chowing down the seed.I had to fill it nearly every day.We did not want to move the feeder from our rear window, and the Mrs. was not keen on me escalating to the next level of defensive measures!The Yankee Flipper has done the job, provided us great entertainment, and its large capacity means far fewer reminders to "please fill the bird feeder." ...

This self-cleaning litter box eliminates most odors whilekeeping the litter pleasingly fresh for tabby. It's ingenious indesign: a cat entering the box triggers a sensor; the sensor sets atimer that counts off 10 minutes; then a rake runs through the litter,scooping out clumps and depositing them in a plastic container at thebox's end; the container is automatically sealed until the next catvisit, when the raking cycle opens the container for another deposit.(Four reusable/disposable containers are included.) The litter box canbe plugged into a wall socket (AC adapter included) or operated oneight D-cell batteries (not included).For safety, the rake stops and reverses at the slightest touch if anobject gets behind the rake while it's returning to its home position.If a cat re-enters the box before the initial 10 minutes have elapsed,the timer automatically resets. The litter box is made of hard plasticand measures 23-1/2 inches long, 16-1/2 inches wide, and 8-1/2 incheshigh. For proper operation, it requires premium clumping litter butdoes not need as much as a nonautomated litter box of the same size.For cleaning, the litter tray can be detached. Instructions foracclimating a cat to the box are included. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars One cat owner
I own one cat and she's not all there, so I thought this box would help. My roommate made me get it. I love the fact that I don't have to touch the litter. It's in my bedroom, so I turn it off at night since it has a very loud motor. A lot of time though the urine clumps get stuck in the rake and I have to get them out myself, so we are back to the old way of doing things. I know it's not the litter, because I tried two of the 4 they recommend. I can't find the Littermaid litter in the store, otherwise I would try it. I found to fix the urine problem, I turn it off until it has time to absorb into the litter and then turn it back, I haven't had a problem since. Nobody knows I have a cat since the odor control of this box is wonderful!!!! That's my favorite part about it. I love this litterbox, even though it's not perfect. I wouldn't go back to the old method of cleaning by hand. Hope this helps.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product, does what it says!
I've had mine for almost 2 years, and I must say it makes owning several cats much easier and more enjoyable since I detest litter boxes.

Only a few points must be followed to keep it enjoyable.

First and most important, make SURE you use one of the better clumping litters. There is a list in the instructions of what to use and what NOT to use. (you waste less litter, so the cost of the more expensive litters is a wash)
If you use the wrong litter, you'll have a clumpy smelly mess on the rake you'll have to dig off (it's like glue...first hand experience here), and the machine will jam because the clumps will also stick to the base and not allow the rake to do it's job.

Second, use plastic bags from the grocery store to mold around the waste recepticles...it makes removal easier, and the recepticles last a long time. (I still have some of the original 12 that came with the machine 2 years ago)

Third, you may want to keep a piece or carpet or plastic floor runner under the unit to catch the extra litter that will fall around the unit. (I have my unit in a carpet covered wood box because I have a dog who likes litter boxes...especially when there's a cat in it, and I keep a plastic runner at the opening of the box...it works great and I just vaccuum or sweep the runner when nec.)

If you follow those simple rules...you'll love this unit!!

1-0 out of 5 stars poop thrower
I got more flicked in my face in 1 month then in 15 years in the veterinary business.
Emptying the poop containers flicks sand and poop in you face and mouth. Also, litter rake would clump and youhad to clean it by hand. The plastic must have been poop bonding material because you could never get it clean. After 2 weeks , it started throwing poop clumps acrosss the floor.

Somehow the rake got stuck and preassure woud build and thwack! Poop and urine would fly.

don't waste your money

1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly Designed
I read all the reviews saying this thing sucked, and I thought, Well I'm an engineer, I can handle it but I was Wrong. I even got the older model LM500 hoping that it would work, but it didn't.
In the automatic rake thing, there are several plastic parts put, not glued or secured together. The first couple of times the rake went offline (because of excessively large dump - this happened at least 4-5 times per day despite filling litter to lower than the mark and using premium litter etc), the little plastic parts would pop out and the rake would go offtrack. Once this started happening, the plastic pieces would pop off every time. I tried glueing it, rubberbands, etc. Nothing worked.
I feel really stupid for having read all the reviews and still buying it. Look at the content of the reviews. People describe intimately what is wrong with the product (rake broken, off track, etc) and how they tried to fix it. This should tell you how involved the owner got to try and get it to work. For me this meant getting cat piss all over myself, litter in my eyes, and messing with it everyday until the day, only three weeks after I got it, when it refused to work whatsoever.
Now I have this gigantic plastic piece of cat piss smelling garbage sitting around that I have to repackage and mail back. This is just not worth it. My brother has one, and it works, but it's just luck of the draw whether you get it to work or not. But judging from all the negative reviews, odds are against you.

I have owned three of these things. None of them worked. The first one died after three months. The second one worked for six months and died; after waiting several months for their warranty people to get back to me, they finally replaced it. The third one never worked. I tried several times to get a hold of their warranty department, but they never responded to me. I finally threw it away. ... Read more

What makes this sensor so good is that it is wireless! I have not had any trouble using the sensor, works through wood and brick easily. It has a local digital readout so you can also use it for a display where you are monitoring. It mounts handily using two screws, and it is removable from the mounting bracket.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best thing I bought all year!
I live in an apartment and do a lot of tailgating. This is the BEST grill! I get compliments on it all of the time. No one can believe that it actually does what it claims! It has a big enough grill surface to cook for a party but it is small enough to pack up and take with you. It has become the main grill for home and travel. No one even offers to bring their portable anymore.

It heats up very quickly and nothing sticks to the surface. I have used the grill for steaks, burgers, chicken, and to saute mushrooms and onions. I have never used any sort of non-stick agent. It is wonderful!

It cleans up with just hot water in most cases! I love it so much that I am buying another one for my father for Father's Day!

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled and you'll be pleased
I love the Grill-2-Go. I use it every summer to cook in the Sierra Nevadas whilst waiting for the fireworks to start. The trays are stored on the inside of one of the legs. The legs fold neatly underneath. But, IT IS NOT AN OPEN FLAME GRILL. Sure, you'll lose some of the charcoal or propane aftertaste in your food. But you won't have to clean up the burned, oily bits that usually fall through a grill. The whole flame is covered by a teflon(?) griddle. It doesn't show in the picture very well, but on the side, there is a fat trap, or fat collector. The reason why the Grill-2-Go has a level, is so that the grease will flow 'downhill' into the fat trap. From things like hot dogs, which exude little fat, almost nothing flows to the trap. But for larger meaty items, steaks and so on, the fat trap works well. If your looking for something that is portable, easy to clean, and to be used in situations where you are 'roughing it' this grill is ideal.

4-0 out of 5 stars WE USE IT ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!
My husband bought this grill last summer. It has George-Foreman-type grilling plates inside..NO MORE MESSY GRILLS!! Oh, this grill makes grilling fun again! We just throw the heavy plates right into our dishwasher! No more scraping, grease fires, messy charcoal. I love it!

The orange portion of the grill (It has a briefcase style closure) pops off the black legs and you can take it camping, picnicing, or anyplace you can think of. It's lightweight and easy to carry or throw in your backseat or trunk.

However, I only gave this product four stars, because, while the grill is incredible, the black legs are made from hard plastic. They seem a bit "cheap" to me as compared to the grill itself. They are not flimsy, and I do need to say that while they may be plastic, you have to keep in mind the grill in whole doesn't weigh very much. So, It really doesn't matter much in the in the long run, unless you are very finicky.

This is a fantastic compact grill(the namebrand speaks for itself). Forget the mess of others. Just a note of advice: the grill has some black plastic grilling utensils in the box...if they are not to your liking, make sure you use ONLY plastic on the grilling plates. If you don't, the protective non-stick coating will be damaged. Happy Grilling!

5-0 out of 5 stars Camping Helper
We took the portable grill on a camping trip without having ever had a trial run. We had an old Coleman stove for a backu0 for a backup. This product was the hit of the trip. I had never cooked using gas before. I was not sure that the grill would stand up to repeated use because of the dertachabvle legs. We had no problem. We cooked breakfast and dinner. We had eggs and bacon one morning, and pancakes the next, using the griddle attachment. We grilled salmon, using the grilling plate for dinner. We had a lot of rain, and the others kept saying that my grill saved the day! The campers were six adults, ranging in age from 55 to 65.

We are going to capm for a few days this year also. They keep saying, be sure to bring your grill. It took up only a modest amount of space.

One problem. I am trying to buy additional grill and griddle plates. One of each comes with the grill and I want to have two of each. I cannot find how to do that online. I'll try the telephone number.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Litte Grill in Green Harbor
I love my grill. After reading the poor reviews, I was motivated to write a positive one. This is the easiest, most portable grill I have ever owned. From set up to cleaning, I cannot imagine what I did without it. The small propane canisters are a snap to attach. You don't have to lug huge tanks to be refilled anymore. The grill top comes off and can be carried to the kitchen sink to be washed off, or you can hose it down outdoors. This has made outdoor cooking far more pleasurable than it has been in years. A+ for my little red grill!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great feeder, but watch the raccoons
Yes, it's a great feeder-it provides a variety of feeds for a variety of birds. We have had an older non-copper (looking) model for two years in two homes and ,up until now, it was industrictible. Yes, we had to position it to keep off the squirrels but the feeder kept a lot of birds (and us) happy. Unfortunately, a group of raccoons recently discovered the feeder and my anti-squirrel measures have not worked. The worst part is that the heavy weight of a raccoon landing on the tray has caused it to break, spilling the entire contents of the feeder on the ground. They too were very happy. The bottom tray and the tabs that attach it to the tubes are plastic, like the rest of the feeder, and will break, given enough force. If you don't have any raccoons, this is still one of the best feeders that I have seen. In fact, I will order another one because I've since discovered a better way to keep the critters off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great House warming gift !
This gift was a perfect house warming gift for a friend. Something they could admire outside there new family room window. It's attractive and functional and does not impose on the decor of a new home.

5-0 out of 5 stars Functional Feeder
This is an attractive-looking, well-designed bird feeder; a best buy. Warning: It loads up with a massive amount of seed--a positive--but it'll crash heavily and destructively to the ground unless you secure it well (not fault of feeder--due to my stupidity). I'm buying an exact replacement feeder now, wouldn't consider any other brand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Young backyard wildlife caretaker
I read the other reviews for this product so I was made aware of the fact that this feeder is made of plastic & not copper. I wasn't concerned because the feeder is absolutely gorgeous anyway! I had recently purchased other copper feeders & houses & this one fit right in with my decor. It is indestructible but squirrles do get thier share of food from it because the bottom is large enough for them to sit in. I don't mind because I adore squirrels & the birds get plenty of time on it also. I recommend this for anyone who likes the look of copper & if you don't want squirrles to use it be sure & hang it from a place where they can't get to it. The extra large top of this feeder does pose some problems for them but they are persistant & can figure out ways around it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Holds a lot of seed
The birds and I are quite pleased with this feeder because it holds more than a week's worth of seed and has several perches to accommodate multiple eaters. Note that the top and bottom are plastic, not copper, but it is an attractive product. Mine is hanging on the front porch so the seeds stay dry, the squirrels can't jump onto it, and I can watch the birds from my kitchen window. The only assembly required is tapping the perches into place and screwing on the top. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars My two cents
I purchased this unit in June from Home Depot. It took 2 hours to assemble (and I'm pretty good at assembling things). It wouldn't complete the warmup cycle properly so I called their tech support line. The wait wasn't too bad for me but the result was that I had a defective unit. I opted to return it to the store rather than wait for the replacement. I complained to the manager about having wasted two hours and another trip to the store and he knocked off $25 bucks on the second unit. I complained because I had read several reviews from people that have received defective units and I think the dealers need to get a message that customers are not happy with quality of the merchandise from this company. Anyway, second unit has been working fine. It did start catching mosquito right away and I noticed a difference within a few days. It's quite fun to check the trap each day to see how many of the little blood suckers are in there. It is hard to get an accurate estimate because the do bunch up and dehydrate but you can see several still buzzing around inside the net and you can point at them and say - HA! For me, the results are proven by less mosquitoes biting or flying around me so I don't worry about counting. My other complaint about this thing is cost. You're dropping a pretty penny for this unit and then don't forget to add on the cost of the tank and the propane - another $40-$50. The propane lasts for 21 days and then you have to refill the tank. You are also suppose to replace the octenol cartridge which run you $20 for 3 (that's less than a three month supply), plus they tell you to buy CO2 cartridges (3 for $10) and run that through the system every second tank. So, doing the math, say a tank refill every 21 days runs you $15 (and that's cheap right now), $7 every 21 days for octenol, $1.50 for CO2, plus electricity - you're looking at upwards of $25 every 21 days in extra hard costs to keep the thing running. That's $35-$40 a month if you like to break it down that way. With that said, if that doesn't scare you off then give the unit a shot. It does make a difference. I won't say there are no more mosquitoes or no-see-ums but I can regularly go out in the yard for a few minutes and come back inside without any bites when before that would not have been possible. It's just hard for me to believe this company charges so much for this thing and then half of them don't work. That aggravates me, but mosquitoes biting my son aggravates me more.

1-0 out of 5 stars Problematic
Don't waste your money; unless you have a lot of it to waste. I have the Freedom model and have had it for two seasons. It works great for a couple of months, depending on placement of course if you've read up on these things. But after that it won't start. The first season I was still under warranty and sent it back. They sent me a rebuilt one after about two months and after mosquito season was over. So I lost two months of use. So with my rebuilt one, which now had a clear valve, I was optimistic this season. Deja vu! Same thing happened. It would not start after a couple of months. And now my warranty is up! PS: They won't answer angry emails. Their service is bad as well!

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Quality product, 2 year life or less, good when works
I now own three American Biophysics Mosquito Magnets. The oldest one I have is two years old and cost me about $900 to purchase. The two year old unit no longer works, so AB technical support wants to sell me a replacement part for $500 or you can buy a new unit, after returning the Power pack, for $425. What a racket. Build an expensive product that doesn't last more than 2 years and then charge a lot to fix or agree to buy another unit that also has shoddy quality. I agree it catches the mosquitos that they claim when it operates properly. But because of the cost of the units and their limited life I would not recommend this product unless you have a lot of money to burn.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works in New Hampshire!
I read all of the reviews for a whole year before we invested in this unit. Its been about 4 weeks now, I can't tell you how many ,thousands, of mosquitos and deer flies this unit has grabbed! We love it, it works for us! Read the directions carefully and it will work for you too! It says 4-6 weeks before you see a difference, and we are just starting to be able to go out in the pool at night and not get attacked! Now how can we get rid of our wasps? They are nesting everywhere this season!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but it works
We had been debating the Mosquito Magnet since the summer of 2003. It was a wet spring in New England in 2004 and in May when my mother-in-law drove her car up in midmorning (not peak misquito time) and I saw 2 dozen of the blood suckers throwing themselves against her car hood I started to worry. I looked at my 18 month old son, wondered how he was going to play outside with out being dunked in DEET, and then went online that morning and ordered one.

We have 4+ acres of land, mostly woods so the empty all your standing water advice is not helpful to us. The area around the house is clear and is about 1 acre. We located it on one side of the house, about 10 feet into the woods, which I think helped the catch ratio since misquitos prefer shade.

RESULTS: Within 24 hours I noticed a difference in my front door area. I could be outside during the day with my son and never see a misquito. At dusk I would see some and eventually get bitten, but I wouldn't be swarmed like I had been previously. After 3-4 weeks there was definately a reduction in the local misquito population. Everytime we checked the net there were too many misquitos flying around to count. When we empty the net bag out every 2-3 weeks there is a mass of dead, dried out misquito bodies about the size of my fist. (Impressive, considering a dead misquito really doesn't tak up a lot of space.)

WHAT IT MEANS FOR OUR LIFE: We have two dogs an a child, so the door is always being opened and shut. Last year there was ALWAYS a misquito in the bedroom. Now we get one once a week, maybe. My son has one bite on him now, I'm not even sure he got that in my yard. He can go weeks without a bite. We can sit out on the deck in the evening, an impossibility before. In general I am enjoying my yard much more this summer.

DOWNSIDE: It is expensive, and you have to buy propane & the attractent every 3 weeks. The company is clearly run by a bunch of engineers, and the instructions & set up reflect that. So if you are non-engineerish, get an engineer geek you know over and offer them a 6-pack of beer to set it up. I friend of mine had problems with hers and when she called the company they said she shouldn't use the propane tanks that are from those "swap tank" places, since the lines are not fully purged of air. Air in the line is a frequent cause of problems with the device.

Placement can also be tricky. If you have a big house and are surrounded by breeding grounds you almost need two for both sides of the house, but we do make do with just one. We did have to move it once to get the best coverage. It obviously isn't cheap, but I haven't found a better alternative. ... Read more

I am very pleased with the product. It was difficult to locate. The seller shipped the product in one day of placing the order. I received the product in excellent condition and packaged well (3 days!). The product is perfect for indoor gardening and small projects.

5-0 out of 5 stars Back to buy another one!!
I bought this for my sister who lives in a condo and babies her window boxes, only to have it appropriated by my gardener son. He fell in love with the tiny tools, and the perfect sized bag. The clippers are mine now, and they are wonderful. They are ideal for putting in my pocket and clipping as I go around the yard, and they clip thicker branches than my full sized fiskers. I clipped a 3/4 inch branch yesterday! Like I said, I'm back to buy at least one more, and I think I'll stack up for presents for all of my apartment dwelling friends...

5-0 out of 5 stars A great gift
My friends just loved it. Perfect for all the indoor gardening work. (...)

4-0 out of 5 stars Handy for container gardening or apartment dwellers
I bought two indoor gardening totes last Christmas -- one for my mother and one for myself. I have gotten a lot of use out of my tote, particularly while I lived in a third floor apartment.

While I still use the tools for my patio container gardening (the snipper and pruner are especially useful) I have purchased full-size garden tools for larger tasks. The tote is handy since even with the included tools and mister stowed there is plenty of room for seed packets, fertilizer, a pair or two of gardening gloves or a small hand tool. I like being able to pick up the tote and have all my basic garden equipment immediately accessible.

Considering Amazon is offering the tote forless than what I paid at the mall chain store I visited, I'd say the tools & tote are a bargain. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still a killing machine: 7 week update
Original review below: So far 2 propane tanks, 3 weeks each. The machine is virtually silent. I skipped using the CO2 "quick clear" cartridge as recommended after the first tank and the machine shut down 2 weeks into the second tank. Quick clear solved the problem. Our large yard has embedded woods, shrubs, wet areas and this year has been very wet. Bugs are out in force and the machine continues to catch loads of mosquitos and no-see-ums but less than a few weeks ago. I change the net when the fan is covered... about every other day. I wash out the old net after the contents stop moving. I treat it like a vacuum cleaner bag with the cleaner = more suction theory. Compared to our neighbors, our pool area is mosquito free. Placement is critical and must consider shade and the downwind CO2 dispersion. Would I buy another Liberty Plus? Probably not. Am I sorry I bought it? No. The technology works but I don't understand how the Liberty series is rated for 1 acre. I assume it generates a larger CO2 plume. In hindsight, for the money I think I'd rather have two $300 Defenders and set up a perimeter. Of course, that presumes the Defender kills like the Liberty. I'm going to move the machine and see if I can thin the biting population in a different part of the yard.

(original review) We've had the MM for 4.5 weeks and so far it's worked as advertised. It was a big bite in the wallet but it's allowed us and the kids the use of our backyard pool and deck through twilight for the first time in 6 years. It's under an apple tree for shade and it sucks in an incredible amount of mosquitos and no-see-ums from the nearby bushes and damp areas.
First propane lasted 3 weeks, as expected. The MM shut down once by itself but started right back up. I empty the net every 2 days. I recommend swapping the full net for an empty one because dumping out the squirming mass into a trash bag is a horror show. You can tie off the full net and let the active ones die. After all these years it's great to be able to enjoy the yard and it's sweet revenge on the biters.

3-0 out of 5 stars The First One Wasn't Working........
I received my Libery Plus on April 5th. I pulled it out of the box and everything listed in the instructions was included in the box (alaways nice) and the Liberty appeared to be a quality product. I had a newly-purchased propane tank that I immediately connected to the Liberty - I had high hopes for this machine!

The Liberty wouldn't start.

It failed repeatedly to complete the warmup cycle. I tweaked the prpoane connection, double-checked the battery and everything else that I could think of. My first call to tech support (after a 10 minute wait) resulted in a few more sugggestions from the rep as to what may be the problem with my unit.

I tried them all and the unit still wouldn't complete the start cycle. A second call to tech support verified that the igniter in my unit was not operating. Tech Support offered to send me a replacement unit without hesitation and didn't ask for a credit card number as some manufacturers try to do. They sent me a second one with no issues.

The second one worked as advertised though it hasn't been running long enough to catch anything yet. Don't buy one of these unless you are willing to chance a non-working unit as the quality control doesn't seem to be that good. If you do have problems you will find that Tech Support is top-notch.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great once you get it started
My mosquito Magnet is sucking down a bagful of sceeters every day. (I'm guessing that's about 1000 or more mosquitos per day). It has returned our back yard to us. Well worth the price and the struggle to get it running.

And it was a struggle to get it running; most of which had to do with the propane supply. They aren't kidding when they tell you to open the valve on the propane tank very slowly. I now do about 1/8th of a turn in 30 seconds. Once I did that, my starting problems came to an end. In my case, I also learned to open the valve only partially....Only to the point where I could begin to hear the gas flowing and no further. The Mosquito Magnet has a very sensitive regulator that will slam shut if too much gas presure is applied to it. This makes the machine think its connected to an empty tank. (That's my theory... for what's it's worth...I'm not an expert on propane and propane accessories)

If you are not the type of person who is willing to patiently twiddle with something until it works, you may not want this. I wouldn't call it a typical plug and play consumer appliance. Hopefully, they will develop it further so that it will be easier to start in the future.

If a little twiddling doesn't scare you and you are ready to buy, but are torn between the two models "Liberty" and the "Liberty Plus" , get the the Liberty Plus. I had a Liberty last summer and it got fried sometime during our numerous power outages (there were about five caused by storms). It seems the mosquito magnet needs to have its internal fan running for about 1/2 hour after it shuts down. If it doesn't, it will burn up on the inside. Since the Liberty is connected to household current, the fan goes off whenever power is interupted. This does not allow the machine to cool off and thus it becomes damaged. The Liberty Plus has a battery operated fan and is therefore not subject to this kind of failure. In addition, you need to plug it in only once at the beginning of the season to charge it up. When its operating, I'm assuming that the fan is somehow run by propane. The battery is just for start ups and cool downs.

I am sort of peeved that I didn't realize that my first machine got fried until after the waranty was out (Isn't that the way it usually works?), But when machine worked, it worked so well, that I was willing to buy another. I guess you could say I'm a sucker----a sucker for a mosquito free back yard. That's what Mosquito Magnet has done in my case.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
I've had the Freedom 2000 for several years now. I have had multiple problems with it and I figure it has caught about one mosquito for each tank of propane I have bought. I have seen a total of about 7 unlucky mosquitoes captured in a year.

I didn't even bring it out last year because I figured I didn't want to spend any more money on propane. It turns out that my wife has a friend of a friend that works for American Biophysics and she said they were awesome, so I figured I would try it again.

After trying it again, I still think it is a complete waste of the $900 I spent on it.

Complaints:
1) It takes 3 or 4 tries over several hours to get it running.
2) It mysteriously shuts down.
3) It doesn't consistently run the fan fast enough to suck even a tiny piece of tissue paper up the horn.
4) I was paying for an attractant for a whole year that actually repelled Tiger mosquitoes.
5) American Biophysics sticks to their one year warranty, so if you buy one, get them to buy it back before the year is up. They are unyielding after 12 months!!!!

Funny enough after talking to several of their tech support people over the last few days, they realized that my MM is a piece of junk and offered to let me part with some more money to get a replacement--Uh, I may look funny, but I didn't just fall off the turnip truck!!!

I'd recommend buying a hose-end bottle of insecticide and spraying your yard. This ended up working much better than the MM.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid this Product
You should avoid Mosquito Magnet products. They are poorly made. They catch a handful of mosquitos, but not enough to make a difference. They are very expensive, and require constant add-on purchases. Use Deet or screened porches instead. ... Read more
