Once upon a time, there were no power tools.
If this sounds like the lead-in to a horror story, you likely understand just how important power tools are to a homeowner. If this doesn’t sound horrific to you, then maybe you haven’t taken the time to think about how far we’ve come from the days of old.
Chainsaw Vs. Hand Saw
The hand saw’s power comes from the user. If you’re a strapping bloke, or even a fairly strong Sheila, you might get a small job done. The chainsaw’s power comes from a gasoline or electric motor. Even a bludger can cut down a tree with ease when using a chainsaw.
There will always be a time and a place for using a hand saw, but that time is only when the job is too small for a chainsaw. Machines never get tired; people do.
Blower Vs. Garden Rake
Anyone who has stood in the yard for hours, sometimes a full day, raking leaves understands the love that can be had for an outdoor blower/vacuum. A blower/vacuum can clear the debris and leaves out of the yard in half the time it takes to do it with a rake. Unless you plan to rake the yard instead of going to the gym, a blower wins in the race of convenience.
Plus, this leaves you more time to relax with a tinny before your next chore.
Pressure Washer Vs. Hose
If you’re washing the outside of your home, driveway, or even your car, a pressure washer is going to remove more dirt and grime than a garden hose. Plus, you can adjust the pressure up or down to provide power based on the task. And the best part? Pressure washers use up to 68% less water than a hose.
And when power tools were created, everyone lived happily ever after. The end.
