For those of us who live well outside the city limits, having access to Amazon’s speedy delivery service is a wonderful perk of the modern world. My family has had a Prime membership for several years now, which means free shipping and two-day delivery on most anything we could want. It saves us time and money in the long run. So whenever the annual Prime Day deals roll around (think Black Friday-like discounts, but going on right now!), it’s habit to start scouring the list for things that are great fits for farmers and others of us who love rural life.
This shopping holiday has grown year after year, and for good reason: You can expect discounts on more than 1 million products, including many that fit perfectly into rural and farm lifestyles. If you don’t have a Amazon Prime membership, you can get one here.
Here are several Prime Day deals that are perfect for farmers, ranchers, and all of us who live and breathe country life! All of these products are scheduled to go on sale during the Prime Day event, which lasts until 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, July 16 — so Prime Day is really more like Prime Double Day. Because Amazon is rolling out some of its deals gradually (and other deals called Lighting Deals are only available for a small time frame), not all of the event’s deals are in place immediately. Be sure to check back! We’ll be updating this list throughout these two days as we hear about more and more great deals that fit your rural lifestyle!
Though it’s got a pretty nice discount for Prime Day, a kit like this still has a big price tag. But, you’re not likely to find it cheaper ever again! So, what’s all in here? Glad you asked:
- 20V MAX Lithium Ion Drill
- 20V MAX Lithium Ion Impact Driver
- 20V MAX Flashlight
- 20v MAX Circular Saw
- 20V MAX XR Liithium Ion Grinder
- 20V MAX Lithium Ion Battery, Charger, and bag (of course!)
Fall and its chillier weather will be here before you know it, but, honestly, even some early summer mornings can have a bit of a bite in the air. And Under Armour has great material in their clothing — plus the company is going all out on tons of deals of its clothing. This durable sweater-knit fabric feels soft and comfortable, but performs like you’d expect Under Armour gear to perform. Plus, highly water-resistant UA Storm technology repels rain and snow for all-weather wear. Material wicks sweat and dries really fast, and it has extended length and a hood for more coverage from the cold.
If you work hard, you’re gonna go through gloves — no matter whether you beat them up or drop them in the field or leave them in the wrong vehicle. While StoneBreaker gloves have a good construction, from the leather to the thread, the makers really pride themselves on their “second-skin” fit. The gloves conform to your hands like they were made for you. StoneBreakers protect without bulk, provide a sure grip, and retain their fit year in and year out.
Dickies is a tried and true brand among those of us who like to get our hands dirty, and their jeans really don’t get much more inexpensive than this. That said, this line is distinct in fit, fabric, and construction from traditional Dickies jeans — this denim collection is more lifestyle inspired to be worn on or off the job (a bit like your “going out” jeans, perhaps?). A modern look while staying true to the heritage and quality we’d expect from Dickies.
FYI: You’ll see the discount applied once you select your size.
Ideal for drilling through or screwing in wood, metal, and plastic, this drill also has a soft-grip handle — making it fairly comfortable for long days on your property. Even better, the lithium-ion battery holds a long charge, so you don’t have to spend so much time worrying about it running out of juice.
The 10-piece set is an all-purpose set for the professional woodworker. It has a great variety of the most popular carbide-tipped bits in an elegant storage case. High quality Micrograin carbide tips that are precision ground provide superior wear resistance and sharp edges for the best finish. Improved hardness uniformity in shank and body resist breakage. 1/2 inch shank bits give greater stability and LEDs vibration during use, and 1/4 inch shank bits are more ideal for the thin profiles.
Thanks to an overwhelming number of storms, the last year for us has seen the small limbs and other debris really begin to pile up — and this is exactly when a good wood chipper comes in handy. This 3-in-1 unit Wood Chipper Shredder design comes with a Top Hopper for 1/2-inch max volume chipping/shredding; Side Chute for 3-inch max branch/limbs, and access to the back vacuum inlet for leaf loading for easy mulching w/ the purchase of a Vacuum Kit (SOLD SEPARATELY). It has a powerful recoil starting 7 HP 208cc Horizontal 4-stroke Single Cylinder OHV Gas Powered Engine.
Precision agriculture requires precision tools, and in the digital age, Apple puts out premium devices. And, typically, very expensive devices! Which is why being able to knock several hundred bucks off of this iPad Pro is a great thing. This is the previous version of the Pro, but don’t be deterred — it packs a ton of storage capacity and doesn’t need WiFi to function. It also has:
- 10.5-Inch Retina Display with Promotion, true Tone, and wide Color
- A10X Fusion chip
- 12MP back camera, 7MP FaceTime HD Front camera
If you’ve ever driven a truck, utility vehicle, or a tractor over a hose — something which pretty much all of us have done — you know the value in a strong hose. It seems so simply, but there are a lot of cheapo versions out there that barely last a season let alone several years. We’ve tried out Stanley hoses in the past, and they’re extremely durable. The forged aluminum titanium coated couplings are basically crush-proof, and the hose isn’t apt to kink on you. Our only complaint is that only the 50-foot Fatmax is on sale for Prime Day, not the 100-foot one.
If you’ve spent any time outdoors this month (silly statement, I know), then you’ve surely noticed how aggressive the bugs have gotten. This stuff is something that should be in the storage box or glove box of every vehicle you own, so that it can go on you every time you’re in the field.
Yes, we had to include a little something for the little somethings in your life! And if your 3- or 4-year-old isn’t quite ready for saddling up one of your real animals, this makes for a good substitute (just make sure that cows aren’t the normal animal we ride). Anyway, this cow does put a twist on the classic rocking chair.
And, of course, not every awesome farm item gets a discount for Prime Day, no matter how hard we beg the bosses at Amazon to do so. Here are a few more items that we love too much not to tell you about:
This is our new go-to coffee mug! Who among us isn’t tired of the army of “keyboard farmers” on social media? This travel mug sums things up nicely, and is a perfect gift for anyone heading off to college or who has wrapped up their ag education. Just a heads up, though, this isn’t part of Amazon Prime, so expect delivery to take longer than a couple of days.
This is one of Carhartt’s newest items, and we’ve been testing it out for the past few weeks. Absolutely love it! It’s darn-near replaced most of our other farm pants. They sport a mid-weight canvas blend, which isn’t too hot in the warmer months, with the perfect amount of stretch for easy movement. And they’ve got all the traditional jean pockets — plus a secure right thigh phone pocket and a left thigh utility pocket for your knife.
Let’s face it, sometimes you need to plug in your phone but just can’t. There are going to be limitations a lot of times. That’s why this solar charger is so handy. It features a compass and two bright LED flashlight bulbs. Awesome for outside activities such as farming, hiking, or emergency needs. It’s made of durable and reliable ABS+PC+Silicone material that protects it from rain, dirt and shock/drops.
It’s compatible with a wide variety of phones.
