The fires look bad in the short term. In the long term, they’ll figure it out.
We crashed a lot of rockets before we launched one to the Moon.
Rumors of a faked moon landing were created to distract us from the real conspiracy. The real conspiracy is to keep secret the fact when NASA reached the moon, scientists confirmed the Earth is indeed flat.
When this information was accidentally leaked to President Kennedy, Werner von Braun used his contacts within the PRC Embassy to arrange for the activation of a former Korean War POW brainwashed by the Chinese to be a cold blooded assassin. President Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas to stop the information from leaking to the public at large, causing wide spread panic.
Documents recently seized by the FBI from a secret basement in a former Soviet safe house located in Florida, revealed that Russian scientists have known about Earth’s true nature since the early 20th century. They published their findings in the 1st edition of the Communist Manifesto.
The Russian scientific community prides itself in being the first to discover Earth is flat. They dismiss Illuminati claims the secretive society was founded centuries earlier to stop cats from pushing everything off the edge. The Russians continue to ignore that since the Illuminati came into being, cats have had to satisfy themselves with simply knocking knickknacks off bookshelves.

DeWALT- 1st place for the Worst Lawn Mower of the Year
Speaker 1: These all yeah. But isn’t that cool right there? Man, that’s just all good.
Speaker 3: How’s the girl? Ah them teefers. How’s them teefers? Oh you got such a pretty smile. Who’s got a pretty smile? You got a pretty smile. Yes you do. Yes you do. All right guys. Sorry about that. Little quality time with the fox there.
Speaker 3: Where do we go today? All right. First thing I got to say is I get asked the question a lot, who makes the absolute best tool out there. Is it Milwaukee, Makita, or DeWALT? And I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to go behind the scenes with all three companies and I can tell you that all three of them put an amazing amount of quality into their tool brand. But that doesn’t mean everything that they build is absolutely perfect or flawless. And sometimes they build something that it’s a complete screw up. And today when I start this video, I assumed that the quality that was going to be in this DeWALT mower would be the same as the quality that was in the rest of the DeWALT brand of tools because I own DeWALT tools. I love DeWALT tools.
Speaker 3: But when I found when I actually started to use this thing, shocked and surprised me. In fact, I don’t know what to say now and it’s been three weeks later. So you’re just going to see it. So at the end of this video today, well couple things. We’re going talk about torque, the ability to start up and actually start cutting grass.
Speaker 3: Now we’re going to fire this bad boy up. It won’t do it under load.
Speaker 3: All right. I’m going to start it up.
Speaker 2: Okay. All right, so now you made your point.
Speaker 3: Its not there and then we’re going talk about the run time which was the biggest disappointment of anything with this thing. And so at the end of this video, I’m actually going to start the video, not edit it and let you guys watch just how much run time there actually is.
Speaker 1: What took so long [inaudible 00:02:50]. Oh yeah.
Speaker 1: Release that button and try again.
Speaker 4: We got one, two, three. Three and a half swipes and a lawn. From there to there.
Speaker 2: But, then again, that’s the weakness of this mower.
Speaker 3: You’re going to be, I don’t know. You guys comment down below. After you see that, you guys tell me what you think about it because I literally don’t know what to say. But, before we get into the video, I owe a giant thank you to Tools in Action. If you guys don’t know who they are, these guys have been friends of my channel since I was just starting out. They literally took me out and taught me so much about videos. And how to work in this industry and how to do these things that, if it wasn’t for them, half of the tool reviews I’ve done I would not have had an opportunity to do. And today’s video I wouldn’t have had the opportunity if it wasn’t for Dan and Eric from Tools in Action.
Speaker 3: So, do me a favor and go over to their channel and subscribe. And here’s another thing, if you guys know of any bad tools out there, let me know that. And the reason I’m asking that is these tool companies keep their bad tools from falling into my hands. I have a skid steer coming in right now. So it might get a little bit noisy. So, if you guys know of a bad tool, please let me know that in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев down below. And, without saying anything more. Well, before I start this video you’re going to see me do the review based on the assumption that the level of quality that DeWALT puts into the rest of their tools is automatically built into this lawn mower and I don’t find out till later in the video about some of the flaws that this lawn mower has. So make sure you watch the whole thing. I got to go see what’s going on.
Speaker 3: Just leave it up top right there. Just idle it down before you shut it down. One to two minutes to let the turbo cool off.
Speaker 5: Yeah, that’s how most diesels are.
Speaker 5: I’m going to call Blaine and see if they need me up there.
Speaker 1: Do you want to get this done in 24 minutes?
Speaker 1: So, with Dan the Man from Tools in Action. And we’re going to be reviewing the entire line of DeWALT outdoor power equipment.
Speaker 3: So, that was the original plan because I assumed that this lawn mower was going to be pretty decent and I could just move on from there. It’s not the first time I’ve been wrong. Or so my wife tells me.
Speaker 1: Now, the first thing that I’m going to say is that you guys are going to probably just start bashing this stuff. Because a lot of you guys are contractors and this stuff is not really meant for you. I don’t care what you say, this is not the right piece of equipment. Sometimes contractors are using this and DeWALT has actually done some marketing towards contractors. But, for the most part, at least for the jobs that we work on, the bigger bigger projects, it doesn’t fit. But this lawn mower here is brand new this year. We’re going to be looking at this, some chain saws. What else do we got to look at?
Speaker 2: I got a head shimmer and a weed whacker. I mean, there’s a lot in the 20 vault line and, like you said, it is designed for the home owner. Designed for the guy that is the contractor that has those 24 batteries lying around. That maybe is on that city lot and maybe is on that smaller piece of property.
Speaker 2: Okay, sorry. Again you guys. Again, this guy comes into me barking orders. I couldn’t eat since 2:00 pm and said, “Dude, I cannot handle the pressure anymore.” I’m done.
Speaker 1: So, one of the things that I started to say in an earlier video but my camera walked out on me was [crosstalk 00:07:28]. This is actually meant is it’s a great fit for the right person. The person that I believe is the right person is one of those guys that has maybe a quarter, maybe a half acre lot.
Speaker 3: Actually, it’s the perfect fit for somebody that has a yard that’s three and one half stripes long.
Speaker 1: And a house that sits on most of that and he’s a weekend warrior. He’s got his yellow fan, right. So he’s got his tools and he doesn’t want to go out and bother. He doesn’t like dinking around with gas. There is some dinking around. You do every year you either drain or try to get things. Whatever, you guys know the drill. You just want to go out and cut your yard and get on to bigger and better things. You take the battery out of your cordless drill and you pop it in here.
Lithium Battery Fires: How to Spot the Warning Signs
As our portable electronic devices continue to get thinner and lighter, manufacturers have had to figure out ways to store a lot of energy in a small package. And advancements in lithium batteries have allowed them to do just that.
But as use of lithium batteries has become widespread in devices like laptops and smartphones, we’ve also seen an increase in battery fires. According to a 2018 report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 25,000 overheating or fire incidents have been reported over a five-year period — involving more than 400 types of lithium battery powered products.
If you’ve flown on an airplane or shipped a package recently, you’ve probably seen warnings related to the dangers of lithium battery fires. But how do these fires start? And more importantly, what can you do to prevent them?

Why Do Lithium Batteries Catch Fire?
Every type of battery creates electricity by turning chemical energy into electrical energy. It does this by using chemical reactions to create a flow of electrons from one material to another. We’ll spare you the rest of the science lesson. The important thing to know is that the materials used (lead-acid, alkaline, nickel-cadmium, etc.) all have different charging properties.
Lithium batteries use — you got it — lithium in metal or ion (Li-ion) form as their anode material. And they come with several advantages. Lithium-ion batteries are easily rechargeable and have the highest energy density of any battery technology, meaning they pack more power into a smaller space. They also can deliver a voltage up to three times higher than other battery types.
But generating all that electricity also creates heat, which can lead to battery fires — or even explosions. This is especially true when a battery is damaged or defective, and uncontrolled chemical reactions (also called thermal runaway) are allowed to occur.
What Types of Devices Have Lithium Batteries?
Lithium batteries are used in almost all modern portable electronic devices. The list includes smartphones, laptops, tablets, eReaders, Smart watches and Bluetooth headphones. Larger lithium batteries are also used to power things like electric scooters, hoverboards, ebikes and even electric cars.
If you have concerns about one of your devices, you can check the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls website. This government regulatory organization oversees product safety and lists active recalls on their website. Enter “lithium” in the search bar to see a list of products organized by specific brands and manufacturers. Often, there are dozens of products in active recall status, such as laptops and kids’ toys.
Before a failing lithium battery catches fire, there are often a few warning signs. Here’s what to look for:
What Do I Do if My Lithium Battery is Failing?
If your device is showing any of the above warning signs, take the following steps:
How Can I Prevent a Battery Fire?
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there are several precautions you can take to help prevent lithium battery fires.
How Common are Lithium Battery Fires?
When batteries catch fire, they often make the news. Remember the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or hoverboard fires? But in reality, lithium battery fires are rare. According to the tech reporting site CNET, your odds of a lithium battery fire are about 1 in 10 million.
When your device or lithium battery is at the end of its usable life, don’t just throw it in the trash. Recycle it instead. Contact your local recycling center to find a facility near you. Or ask your local electronics retailer if they have a battery recycling program.

The 12-inch bar is long enough to tackle most tree limbs or trunks but not so long as to be unwieldy or difficult to use.
At a lightweight 9 pounds, this chainsaw shouldn’t tire you out quickly. Also, a brushless motor reduces maintenance needs, an automatic oiler keeps the chain turning smoothly, and tool-free adjustment knobs make it easy to tighten the chain and bar. Plus, the DeWALT 20-Volt Max XR is designed to reduce the risk of dangerous kickback. This just might be your favorite tool for working around the yard when it’s time to prune, clean up after a storm, or even do some light demolition for a DIY carpentry project.

Worx WG322 POWER SHARE 20V 10-Inch Cordless Chainsaw

Husqvarna 120i 14-Inch Battery Chainsaw
- Can set for maximum power or for maximum battery life
- Inertia-activated chain brake for safety should saw experience kickback
Never used a chainsaw before? No problem! The Husqvarna 120i is a lightweight battery chainsaw ideal for light yard work such as pruning branches or felling small trees. With a 14-inch bar, 40-volt battery, reasonable weight of 10.8 pounds with the battery in place, and quiet performance, this is a great first chainsaw. Turn it on with a push of the power button, and get to work. If you’re felling a tree and need a little more oomph, a push of the button on the keypad gives you maximum power. If you’re just trimming branches and shrubs and want the battery to run as long as possible, push the other keypad button for maximum run time.
It’s very easy to adjust the chain tension—just lift and turn the control. The chainsaw has a self-oiler to keep your chain running smoothly, and when it’s time for an oil refill, the cap flips up for refills without a mess. Should the saw kickback, there’s a safety feature that stops the tool immediately. A brushless motor keeps this chainsaw working well without a lot of maintenance or fuss and bother, and its ergonomic design makes it comfortable to use even for long work sessions. All in all, this is a great addition to your garden tool collection.
