If you’ve ever cut wood for more than a few hours you know a good chainsaw makes all the difference, making you hate the task or love the task. When it was time to upgrade from my 34cc 16″” Poulan I’m so glad I bought this Husky 450 chain saw with 18″ bar! It’s a little hot rod. 50cc’s starts easier than the comparable Stihl and I think it revs higher, with it’s slightly lower weight it was a no brainier.
- Add a standard 12V marine or RV battery to the ArkPak to create a portable power pack with up to 130ah of capacity
- Built-in 150W inverter provides standard 120VAC power for cell phone chargers, laptops, and most standard camping refrigerators
- Two built-in 12V sockets provide power to most 12V appliances as well as cell phone car chargers, portable coolers, and more
- Includes a 6 amp, 7 stage smart charger and battery management display that indicates battery charge status, remaining capacity, and current voltage.
- Using the included 12V car charger, the ArkPak can be used as a secondary battery for your vehicle (dual battery system)
The ArkPak now comes with both the 12V car charger/adapter and the quick release mounting brackets. The ArkPak is a battery box that turns a standard 12V deep-cycle battery into a portable power pack.
Using the built-in 150 watt inverter, USB charging port, and 12V accessory ports, the ArkPak can be used to power a camp site, recharge your electronics during a power outage, or even power a LCD television at your next tailgating party. When used with a high capacity deep-cycle battery, the ArkPak can provide 120V and 12V power anytime, anywhere, for days (depending on what you’re powering of course). The ArkPak can be recharged from a standard 120V power outlet or (with the included 12V car charger) a standard 12V vehicle accessory port. The ArkPak can also be recharged with solar panels. The ArkPak includes a 50amp Anderson plug for recharging as well.
About the battery: The ArkPak does not come with a proprietary battery pack. You are free to use almost any standard 12V lead-acid battery group 31 or smaller in your ArkPak. Gel, AGM, Calcium, or “wet” lead-acid batteries are all compatible. To maximize the life of your battery, Ark recommends that you use a zero maintenance deep-cycle marine or RV battery with the ArkPak.
Often imitated but never duplicated, the original Alaskan Chain Saw Mill made by Granberg. This versatile tool allows you to make your own lumber in the woods. It also lets you mill up thick slabs with the live edge and large beams that would be very expensive to buy. Take the saw mill to the logs instead of the logs to the mill. At only $160 from Amazon it can pay for itself in one day’s use.
Do you like buying the best? Do you like knowing you paid more for a quality item that will last rather than spending more on a few cheap models that will frustrate you when they inevitably break? Take a look at the Fiskars Spitting Ax if you want a quality ax designed to do serious work!
- Ergonomic design distributes much of the weight at the axe head to provide superior balance for faster and more accurate splitting with less effort
- Exceptional control for faster and safer splitting and chopping
- Unique head shape disperses wood from the blade for clean splitting
- Hardened forged steel blade stays sharp longer than traditional axes
- Non-stick blade coating powers through wood and prevents head from getting stuck

Lot’s of quality power to run your off-grid cabin and the tools to build it. This high-end “Inverter” model generator is ready for electronics and is very quiet! Compare this with Honda’s line of inverter generators. These are highly portable lightweight generators with eco-throttle, it idles so quiet you barely know it’s on until you turn on your saw, then it automatically throttles up for power-time.
Propane is the only fuel that stores for long periods of time, much longer than gasoline or diesel which degrades in a few months. Propane lasts years. This may seem like a small detail but when you need your generator you need it to work and you want the fuel to be ready. Storing gas or diesel for long periods means changing it out for fresh supplies a few times a year to keep it fresh. Not convenient for emergency use or a bug out shelter. This Propane generator is only slightly more expensive than a normal gas generator at $369 with free shipping from Amazon. It’s also very quiet and doesn’t pollute much.
