How To “Hide” Your Propane Tank
If you’re tired of looking at your propane tank and you don’t want to spend
the money to bury the tank in the ground, you might like this new Rock
Box Propane Tank Cover.
It’s a fake rock cover made out of fiberglass that looks like a large rock
formation. The top of the cover consists of an articulated lid that rolls back
easily for access to the top of the tank. It comes in 5 colors and weighs
about 200 lbs. The material is about 1 in. thick and the cover is vented for
safety.
Designed to fit a 250-gal. tank, it sells for $2,195.

Pipe Flower Holder Adds
Nice Touch To Headstone
Myrtle Hendershot of Parkers Prairie,
Minn., puts a piece of galvanized pipe
in the ground next to her husband’s
headstone to hold artificial flowers instead
of just poking them into the ground.
Unsecured flowers are usually thrown out
after a couple of weeks because they’re
too difficult to mow or trim around.
Her son, Dennis, cut a piece of pipe and Galvanized pipe holds artificial
flowers next to headstone.

Mobile Propane Lighting
Solar-powered lights let you add outdoor lighting without doing any
wiring.
Lamp Posts Add Class & Free Light
A new generation of solar lights has made it easy and relatively inexpensive
to add outdoor lighting to a front yard, patio or deck with no need to do
any wiring.
Here are a few of the styles FARM SHOW found and a small sample of
websites that carry them.
An 85-in. tall post light from Gama Sonic can be fitted with 1, 2 or 3
lights on a single black, white or rust red post to create a classic, elegant
late 19th Century gas-light design. The powder-coated, cast-aluminum posts
are weather resistant, and are designed to be bolted down. Sold through
dealers, the triple light model retails for $329 to $379.
Suntyme offers a 90-in. tall black or white post with a heavy cast iron
base, in-ground installation kit and a single light for about $300. Etched
glass side panels add a historic look.
The 64-in. tall Westminster sold by Solar Illuminations has a heavy base
that doesn’t require securing to the ground so it can be moved to wherever
it’s needed. It has 12 LED bulbs with a 10 to 15 watt output. Sells for $280.

Robotic Floor Cleaner
This new robotic floor cleaning appliance is specially designed for hard
surface floors including wood, tile, vinyl and Pergo.
The Mint robotic floor cleaner uses a cube-shaped, GPS-like guidance
system to track where it cleans. It comes with a pad that you cover with
a cleaning cloth, such as Swiffer or Pledge floor wipes or dry wipes. You
simply place the cloth over the pad and then snap it in place. The pad is
less than 10 in. wide, allowing it to maneuver between chair legs and other
small spaces.
Using dry cloths, Mint picks up dust, dirt and hair that accumulate on
floors. Using wet cloths, it uses a special mopping motion to dissolve and
wipe up deeper dirt and grime, leaving floors shiny and fresh.
According to the company, manual and automatic vacuums work on
carpets but tend to spread dust and dirt around on hard surfaces. The Mint is
only 3 in. tall so it’ll go under most furniture, baseboards, beds, low tables,
and couches. It also cleans around obstacles, along walls and edges, and
Lancaster Lanterns offers a new solution
for moving propane-powered lights
around, especially on rougher terrain or
on shop floors.
“Our two-wheeled cart holds a 20lb., 30-lb. or 40-lb. propane bottle,”
says Jacob L. King, owner of Lancaster
Lanterns. “It has a steel ring so the bottle
fits in snug.”
The sturdy, steel carts are powdercoated and painted red on balloon tires.
Lancaster Lanterns also sells hand carts
suitable with smaller wheels for smooth,
indoor floors.
The pole for the light can be mounted
on the bottle or the handle, King says.
Also, a heater head can be placed on the
bottle and moved around with the cart.
The balloon wheel carts cost $108.70
plus shipping. Call the business for a
dealer in your area.

all the way in corners.
The cube-shaped guidance system
uses light sensor feedback and carefully
plans each path to ensure the robot
doesn’t miss a spot and doesn’t cover the
same area twice. A range of sensors helps
the unit avoid area rugs and transitions
to carpet.
According to the company, an average
sized kitchen can be cleaned with a dry GPS - like guidance system tracks

cloth in about 25 min., and with a wet
cloth in about 40 min.
The Mint comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts over 3 hours when dry
cleaning, and up to 2 hours when wet cleaning.
Sells for less than $250.
