Default Harbor Freight

I see lots of print ads for Harbor Freight and noticed that their prices seem to be considerably lower than at most other stores. How is the quality of their products? Most of what I see in their ads is off-brand tools.

I didn't even know they had retail stores until I read that there was a store in Des Moines and in Cedar Rapids. I thought they were only mail order.

We've purchased a lot of our tools from them & had good luck with them.

I've also purchased solar lights & had the same good luck.

It is & isn't.

Harbor Freight carries tools, toys & yard stuff.

BUT, its smaller & cheaper.
