    A friend of mine got a fully assembled trailer from harbor freight on one of their deals for like$275. Honestly, there are some great deals even if the quality is dodgy.

    Yeah, my general policy is to buy Harbor Freight first, if it breaks, take it back and get a new one, if it breaks again I know that a) I'm using it enough to justify buying high quality and b) high quality is needed for this tool.

    I *think* I've saved quite a bit this way.

    However for something like a generator, I'm gonna go with a product a bit more proven.

    As for the Wen, they came back and I got a new one. Work on the van and other commitments has kept me from breaking it in. Hopefully this weekend.
