Hi, I’m Kevin, and as the Editor and Chief of Besthomegear.com, I’m responsible for writing and publishing the content for Best Home Gear which I launched in November 2018.

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

A little about me – and “why” I could be considered an expert on the content and/or products you see featured at BestHomeGear.Com.

  • Business Owner: Architectural/Commercial building materials distributor for 20+ years (I understand the residential and commercial building materials market very well)
  • Licensed Residential Builder/Remodeling Contractor – 25+ years (multiple years of experience in building and remodeling homes).
  • Rental Property Owner/Manager – 22+ years (have multiple years of experience performing remodels, maintenance, and landscape management on multiple rental properties).
  • Licensed Realtor – 8+ years (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” when 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 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.


I created BestHomeGear.Com to combine my practical experience and proven methods with proven products – and offer Readers the Best Product and DIY Home improvement advice.

A Word About Your Buying Options:

Two Choices when Buying “Lawn Tools or Outdoor Power Equipment”:

1)   Shop @ Local Retail Stores

You can drive to the Hardware or Home improvement store and see what they happen to have on their shelves that day,             

  – Or –

2)   Shop Online 

When you read reviews from trusted sources like us 🙂 And Discover the Best Multiple brands of each product – Shop Online, Check Prices, Facts, and Real User Reviews, and you’re able to make an informed buying decision quickly – Then, Buy and ship products to Your location, Usually within 1-2 days.

At the home improvement store, we can all sort through shelves of different products each store offers. But how do you know which is the best tool for you?  We can all agree that Price alone isn’t the best gauge of a product’s actual value.

Also, how do the products the stores stock compare for warranty, longevity, personal user ratings, etc.? The home improvement staff, if you can find one, may not be able to offer any helpful advice on specific equipment or brands they carry. 

We think our website removes much of the mystery from that buying process.

Let’s face it, you work hard for your money, and your time for work around the house is probably limited.  While many of us may not mind outdoor work (I know, crazy, some people actually enjoy doing work around the Home), You also want to save time for Fun!

You know, biking, hiking, fishing, golfing (or insert your idea of fun here).

At Best Home Gear, we’re here to help you accomplish both goals; by offering solid reviews, and test results that save you the time and frustration of finding the right tools or equipment.

Then get on with your task And those fun things in life.

I’ve long been a proponent of Battery Powered (Cordless) Tools and the dependability and efficiency of having equipment charged – and ready to operate at a moment’s notice, so you may notice that Best Home Gear’s focus includes many reviews for Cordless Power Equipment!

With No gas, No oil to mix, no spark plugs to foul, and No Extension Cords, Just connect a freshly charged battery to your equipment and Go. That’s Quick & Easy work!

So whether you’re a Weekend-warrior or a full-time professional builder or landscaper, we trust our site helps you discover the perfect Gear for your project!
