Perhaps the little brother to Home Depot, Harbor Freight Tools is known for their low price, high quality tools. Founded in California in 1977, Harbor Freight Tools is a privately-owned chain of retail stores. They also have a booming mail order and online business. Harbor Freight is also known for their rigorous quality assurance, and even saw it fit to open their own facility dedicated specifically to handling the task based out of California.
Harbor Freight is a cornerstone for virtually all electronics, and even consumer-grade batteries can be found here for a cheaper price than Costco. Harbor Freight has exploded in business, and it’s really easy to understand why – not only are their staff genuinely friendly, enjoyable and pleasant people, but their products are bar-none in terms of value. Although the chain only had 304 stores up until 2012, that number has since doubled, and they are looking to have a total of more than 1,000 stores open by the end of 2018. Harbor Freight is also known for their philanthropy, as they often donate tools to technical institutions or vocational schools.

Predator 3500-watt Super Quiet Inverter Generator
The Predator-3500 Watt Super Quiet Inverter Generator is the perfect generator to have on hand in case of a back-up. Not only does this take kerosene, but it also can be charged to hold about 12 hours worth of power for moderate consumption. This is discounted down from the regular price of $729.99 – of course, the 2000 watt model is also available for $429.99, but this unit is only capable of producing around 7-8 hours worth of electricity for a small, modest home. One big gripe is that the Predator models only have a year warranty, which can prove to be inconvenient at the worst time. Predator generators are very highly rated, though.
