Backyard Tools Making Work Easy

backyard tools making chores easy

Fall is nearly upon us and it's time to once again tackle those backyard chores before the weather turns.  Today I'm sharing three backyard tools that make those outdoor chores easy.  I would consider these tools 'must haves' in your tool arsenol, if you don't have them already be sure to add them to your list.

Backyard Chore #1: Trimming dead branches

For this task I used a Makita cordless reciprocating saw with a 9" Diablo pruning blade.  Look at the results in the after shot above!  

This Diablo 9" pruning blade is the first carbide pruning blade which gives it 50X more cutting life versus a standard pruning blade.  It's aggressive and when combined with the Makita cordless reciprocating saw you have a tool that makes quick work of all those dead branches.

I took the pruning blade to some scrap 4x4 posts to chop up for the burn pile and look how easy it went through:

Backyard Chore #2: Inflating pool toys

Inflating pool toys seems to be an endless backyard task as my kids use and abuse all the inflatables all summer long.  My daughter volunteered to take the Ryobi 18V ONE+ High Power Inflator for a test run on the pool toys.

This is one powerful little tool I highly recommend for any inflatables you may have (pool toys, air mattress, kids toys) with these features: 
  • ●  Cordless
  • ●  Fast
  • ●  Locking trigger
  • ●  Doubles as a surface blower

Backyard Chore #3: Cleaning the gutters

Our gutters need consistent cleaning and I'm so happy to finally have a pair of water resistant leather gloves for this chore.  These Husky 100% grain cowhide gloves provide long lasting durability and great protection.

I'm wearing a size Large which is plenty roomy and big enough for my husband to 'borrow'.
