Power Tool Combo Kit
When in doubt, get one of everything! A multiple-tool combo kit is a great way to start a new tool collection or to replenish a collection that’s seen some wear and tear. Hart offers a number of combos, including one with an impact driver, driver/drill, flashlight and reciprocating saw, as well as two batteries and a charger.
Note: All Hart power tools, lawn and garden and automotive tools are covered by a three-year warranty.
Multi-Tool and Utility Knife Combo
When it comes to use-them-every-day items for DIYers, few are as useful as a multi-tool and a quality utility knife. The fact that Hart offers a pairing of both in their initial lineup is a great sign that they understand what DIYers and pros need to get the job done right.
Oscillating Tool Kit
Oscillating tools are a boon to any DIYer wanting to tackle tasks that require both the finesse of a precision instrument and the aggressiveness of a serious power tool. This cordless oscillating multi-tool from Hart is a great way to get your feet wet with a quality, affordable cordless oscillator.
Did you know that you can rebuild a cordless tool battery?
Cordless Rotary Tool
Perfect for everything from cutting outlet holes in drywall to polishing jewelry or adding an edge to a work blade, a cordless rotary tool is an amazing addition to your shop equipment. It’s not truly essential, but once you have one you’ll wonder how you lived without it!
Battery & Charger
You may have noticed that the stand-alone cordless tools we’ve featured haven’t come with a battery. This is an intentional aspect of the Hart tools roll-out, one that allows their prices to stay low. That’s great on your wallet, but it does means that you’ll need a battery/charger to make your set complete. (Of course, if you picked up the combo set, then you’ll already be stocked with two batteries.) And, here’s a tip for how to double your battery life.
Folding 6-Piece Nut Driver
There are plenty of all-in-one tools on the market, but it’s rare to see a driver with the compact form and multiple sizing provided by this handy device. And like all Hart hand tools, this folding driver is backed by a limited warranty for the life of the tool. Plus, check out this nifty nut holder tip for when you’re working in hard-to-reach spaces.
Don’t skimp on safety and comfort when it comes to work gloves. Although you may save a few dollars by selecting sub-par gear, in the long run you’ll end up regretting not upgrading to higher-quality safety equipment. These leather-palmed work gloves with five-finger touchscreen capability will protect your hands while still providing full access to your touch-screen devices.
While we’ve mostly been talking about tools for your garage or workshop, Hart also has you covered when it comes to lawn and garden care. This transforming string-trimmer/edger and blower combo kit helps you finish your lawn work early, with plenty of time for some post-yardwork relaxation.
14-In. Cordless Chainsaw
In addition to their standard-duty cordless equipment, Hart has a line of 40-volt, battery-operated tools designed to tackle more demanding projects. Their brushless, cordless 14-in. chainsaw is a perfect example of this line, which also includes leaf vacuums, blowers and cordless lawnmowers. With extraordinary power and durability, the new Hart tools line is pushing the limits of what cordless equipment can handle.
