Greetings, I’m Kevin, the Editor-in-Chief behind Best Home Gear. With over 30 years of hands-on experience and expertise in home improvement, I have, since November 2018, crafted and published the content you’ll find on Best Home Gear.

I currently split my time between Michigan and Arizona in the USA,  working from both locations, while researching the best equipment and methods to assist the DIY homeowner.

A little about me – and “why” I might be considered an expert on the DIY content and Product Reviews featured at Best Home Gear.

  • Business Owner (Michigan, Florida): Architectural/Commercial building materials distributor for 20+ years (I understand the residential and commercial building materials market very well)
  • Licensed Residential Builder/Remodeling Contractor (Michigan) 25+ years (multiple years experience building and remodeling homes).
  • Rental Property Owner/Manager(Michigan, Florida, Arizona) – 22+ years (have multiple years of experience performing remodels, maintenance, and landscape management on multiple rental properties).
  • Licensed Realtor (Florida) – As a former real estate agent (8+ years), I understand the “value” home buyers place on “home improvement” and how to make those improvements happen as a builder or a do-it-yourself homeowner.

As you see, I’ve been “Around the Block” – working on residential and commercial properties.

None of that is to boast – But through those experiences, I have been fortunate to use (and continue to use) almost every type of Power Tool or piece of Lawn Equipment available to homeowners or professionals.

And, like you, I have also experienced and learned from the frustration of using equipment that was not dependable and likely a wrong purchase.

Types of Yard Tools, and Outdoor Equipment Best Home Gear Recommends:

Here at Best Home Gear, we’ve long been proponents of Battery Powered (Cordless)  Yard Tools vs. Gas Powered Yard Tools for several reasons.

Battery-powered yard tools provide dependability and efficiency that gas-powered tools cannot match for the average homeowner.

Battery-powered tools require virtually none of the maintenance required by Gas-Powered tools, such as gasoline, sparkplugs, oil, tune-ups, pull cords, etc.

Another option, of course, is to invest in Electric Power Tools – used with an extension cord; the limitations are pretty obvious, including dragging an extension cord, the distance limited by electrical outlet locations, and the risk of cutting the extension cord with a trimmer or mower.

As a result of our leanings, you may notice that Best Home Gear’s focus includes many reviews for Cordless (battery-powered) Yard Tools.

With No gas, No oil to mix, no spark plugs to foul, and no extension Cords, connect a freshly charged battery to your equipment and Go. That’s Quick and easy work.
