Review of Harbor Freight Tools
If you’ve purchased tools, equipment or hardware you know how addicting tools can be for a man and his man
I’ve been a contractor all my life and there isn’t much I can’t do and I love my tools. Finding
good tools in Mchenry isn’t too hard, but finding good cheap tools in Mchenry might be a bit of a challenge.
Typically I always purchased the best and most expensive because I didn’t have time to replace tools and
equipment while on the job. Now that I’m retired I don’t need bullet proof tools, but it helps to have good
tools at a good price.
Harbor Freight Moved into Crystal Lake in the last 2 years and I can hardly keep myself from the place. I’ve got
some projects around the house that need specialized equipment and tools and I had a garage disaster where almost
all my tools were destroyed. So…. I’ve be a regular customer at Harbor Freight in Crystal Lake, it’s the best place
for mchenry tools and equipment.
Prudence is required when purchasing some items. Cheap tools in Mchenry can be a godsend or a curse. Harbor
Freight offers insurance on just about all their tools and replacement can be made in two years. Let’s face it, if
you buy a cement mixer made in China with plastic gears you better buy the replacement insurance policy.
I love Harbor Freight. They have a coupon flyer every month, super coupons on the computer and
you can join a club for even further discounts. When the weather turns nice they have sidewalk sales on a
My experience with the managers, clerks and other workers has been excellent. All are always willing to go
out of their way to help. Treat them nice and they will go overboard to help you with your purchase.
Bottom line, if you’re a Mchenry tool collector you can fill a garage with just about any tool you need for
mechanical work, wood working, electrical work, carpentry, plumbing and I could go on.
Most all tools will have a review or two. Read them carefully and you can make an intelligent decision on
whether you might want to make a purchase or not. If you have kids who like to use your tools you can pick up a
couple sets of screw drivers, wrenches, pliers etc, you won’t have to get bent out of shape when the tools don’t
return and at the same time you won’t discourage their creative juices.
Besides purchasing smaller items, I’ve purchased some larger items like compressors, generator, compactor and
large concrete mixer. All have performed flawlessly and one was given a good beating…. I mean, I used it hard and
its still ticking strong. Don’t forget to get the extended warranty on expensive items…. Even stuff like drills,
jacks, pipe benders, or grinders.
Crystal Lake is only about 10 minutes from Mchenry and I’ve found Harbor Freight to be my
favorite for buying Mchenry tools and equipment. I previously bought my tools at Menards or Home Depot, but
even now they stopped carrying name brands, their return policy sucks. I had a dewalt drill from Home Depot
and tried to return it but did not have my receipt….. remember, I had been buying from these guys for over 20
years. They would not help me, same happened at Menards. When I spend a lot of money I expect service and
these 2 old standby’s, Menards and Home Depot just don’t cut it. I would never return an item that did not
deserve to be returned and expect to be treated a little special for buying as much as I do. Harbor Freight
has really impressed me, I had 2 items to return and there was no hesitation on their part.
So if you want good tools at a good price, check out Harbor Freight in Crystal Lake!
