Wecome to Outerguide!

When reading one of our amazing in-depth review articles, have you ever wondered who this guy that has put it all together is? How many hours did he have to put into producing such amazing in-depth content? Why is he doing all these in the first place?

Well, I’ll be delighted if any of these questions went through your mind. This time, it’s no product review or comparison or how-to article. In this piece, we aim to introduce ourselves to you and tell our very own story.

Our Mission On This Site Is To Help You great products for your outdoor needs.

Who is behind the site?

So, I’m Brett Tyler, an entrepreneur, but more importantly (well, to me at least), a tool head. I’m passionate about all sorts of machines and how they work – it’s in my blood.
 
It started a long time ago when I was probably around 13. My father was a machine geek too and man oh man, he did know a hell lot of things about tools & machines.
 
We barely had to call a mechanic in our house to fix any machine because we had our in-house mechanic. I was highly impressed by my father’s interest and knowledge of tools, and I’d sit closely every time he worked on a machine.
 
And voila! I started to grow a similar passion for machines too. And out of that, I did ruin some trying to pretend a “pro” of machines already, when my father would not be around.
 
But thank god that my father was there to save my back. He’d fix the mess I created and would not scold me; instead, appreciate me for trying and teach me how it was done. You know, I can never thank my dad enough for this.
 
Hey, am I getting too emotional here? Well, let’s get back on track. Am I the only person behind such a big and resourceful website?
 
No man, definitely not

About The Team

If I had to tell you about the other members of the team in one sentence, here’s how it’ll sound – “They’re all tool heads.”
 
These guys love tools and machines as much as I do, and probably that’s what has brought us together to create this website.
 
I’ve my friends, colleagues, and other acquaintances working behind this website. They’re happy to help me on the journey because they too love researching, talking, and writing machines.
 
Primarily I began alone. But when they heard about my project, they were more than eager to work with me out of their love for machines, and I can never thank them enough for this.
 
They’ve brought more specific resources to this site.
 
You know, I’m not as good as my father, and I don’t have such vast knowledge of all sorts of house machines. I’m better at a few outdoor tools, for example, a pressure washer, sewer jetter, and so on.
 
While, one of them is better at some other sort of tools, another one on some other tools and vice-versa.
 
This brings a lot of specific and precise knowledge on the table and helps us create more in-depth expertly produced content.

Why this website?

To make your shopping easier.
 
Look, a person that needs to buy a pressure washer but doesn’t know anything about it is going to be stressed. He’ll see all those numbers and jargon and will not understand a single thing, let alone judging and finding the top product.
 
Shopping is not always a pleasurable experience, my man!
 
That’s the point of this website. We make outdoor tool shopping easier. We’ll tell you what-means-what in the case of tools.
 
We specify appropriate user groups for a specific product, so you’ll be out of shiny object syndrome.
 
Next time you won’t make the purchase based on – “oh wow, how amazing that product is!”; instead, you’ll be telling yourself – “hmm, so this product is suitable for these jobs and has these upsides and these downsides, so are it a good fit for my needs?
 

How Do We Create Reviews?​

We’ve set up a 7-step process through which we create our reviews, and that process looks like this –

 
  • We plan what we’re going to review and exactly ‘why.’
  • We consider the top-performing & promising products of that particular product category.
  • We try to get our hands on all the considered items. We use them, test them, set standards, and analyze them thoroughly.
  • We take expert opinions from other gurus of those products. We try to talk to the local stores as well.
  • We consider the reviews of the masses to find out what the real-life users of those products have to say about it. If they talk about any particular issue of the product, we double-check that to find out whether it’s a universal fault of all of those products or a manufacturing fault for that specific item.
  • We judge the products based upon all this information and make our decision. We particularly mark which product will be right for which set of users.
  • We put our thoughts and knowledge into reviews and make it public.

What’s in it for us?

Well, you have all the right to ask, that is all this service voluntary?
 
Mostly yes. We do it as a hobby. As I stated earlier, we’re all tool heads, and we like discussing tools. So it’s a healthy pastime for us to try out different tools and review them – and that’s the main benefit for us.
 
Apart from that, when you buy through our links, we earn a tiny commission at no extra cost to you, which allows for the maintenance cost of this website, like domain, hosting, designers, etc.
 
This small commission is given by the marketplace, not any specific brand, and we’re clearing that out; otherwise, the question of biases might arise in your mind.
 
However, as I already stated above, the little commission does not cost you anything extra. Instead, it is carried out by the marketplace.

No Biasness - Guaranteed

Never have we ever accepted a product as a free item from any manufacturer to tell good things about that and hide the bad ones. Yeah, it’s true we got offered, but we rejected every freaking time.
 
We’re never sponsored by any brand or manufacturer, so basically, there’s no reason for us to be biased. We’re here to tell you nothing but the truth and help you find the best tool for your needs.
 
We’re neutral to all the brands available. For us, it’s their product that talks for them, neither their fame nor their offer of sponsorship or free product.
 
We are, and will always be free of biases.
 
 

Should You Trust Us?

There’s probably no reason not to. We have the pure intention of telling you nothing but the truth and help you find the perfect tool for your needs. We have literally no reason to lie to you because we’re not going to get paid for that.
 
And also, if our recommendation is not appropriate and you return the product that you bought through our affiliate link, we make literally nothing out of that.
 
So you understand that we have all the intention to recommend the right product and make your shopping easier, right?
