Tackle All of Your DIY Projects With Walmart’s Line of Affordable Tools
You can finally start those DIY projects you've been putting off, thanks to Walmart's line of high-quality (and affordable!) HART tools.
I'm guilty of avoiding all the DIY home improvement projects I've been wanting to tackle for years. It's not that I don't think I can do it (I've used a power drill a time or two), but tools are expensive. And, when it comes to tools, that's one thing that I don't want to skimp on quality.
Luckily, Walmart launched a line of high-quality HART tools that are affordable and appeal to newbie DIYers and pros alike. The line includes any tool you'll need to conquer those DIY projects you've been procrastinating, including hand tools, power tools, lawn and garden tools, automotive and even protective gear and tool storage. If you're not quite sure how to get started or what tools you need, we've listed our favorites and how they work to help you get DIY-ing.
Turn fasteners in tight spaces easily with this mechanics toolset. The set comes with a full-chrome finish for rust resistance, and the large size markings allow you to identify each tool quickly. This set includes 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch drive sockets, plus additional tools including extensions, adaptors, a bit driver and assorted one-inch insert bits.
Think about every handheld tool you've ever needed. Now, picture them all combined into one tool. The multi-tool comes equipped with pliers, a hammerhead, small slotted and large slotted screwdrivers, serrated blades, a file, a knife, a wire stripper, a bottle and can opener, pipe grips, nail claw, wire cutters and a Phillips head screwdriver.
Sometimes you need to change the bit quickly in the middle of a project. This 6-in-1 screwdriver allows you to do just that with its double-ended shank. The large comfort grip handle provides 50 percent more torque, and the anti-roll design prevents the screwdriver from rolling off the work surface. The set includes two Phillips head, 3/16-inch and 1/4-inch slotted, and 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch nut drivers.
This socket set is universal because it adjusts to grip any shape or size fastener, including wing nut, hex, square, nut, hook and eye. You can access fasteners in the tightest of areas because of its 90-tooth ratchet with arc swing. The set comes with a 3/8-inch drive ratchet, universal socket and 3/8-inch drill and driver adaptor.
Once you've accumulated a sizeable tool collection, things can get a bit out of control. Stop rooting around your toolbox, and get organized with products like socket organizers, holders for oddly-shaped tools and more.
Is there anything worse than getting into a groove with a project only to have the battery die? HART's battery starter kit includes a powerful 20V 1.5Ah battery and a fast 2 AMP charger that charges three times faster than a standard 0.5Ah charger. Using lithium-ion technology, the battery is both compact and lightweight. It has long-lasting performance, and the best part is that it's compatible with all HART 20V power tools and 20V outdoor equipment — so you don't have to invest or keep up with a bunch of batteries.
If you only buy one tool, the oscillating multi-tool should be the one. It's ideal for cutting, sanding, scraping and grinding through a plethora of materials. It's lightweight and perfect when you need precision in tight spots. The tool comes with 60-grit, 80-grit and 120-grit sanding pads, a hex wrench, and segmented and wood blades.
You may already have a drill, but maybe it's time for an upgrade. HART's 1/2-inch drill and driver features a 24-position clutch, allowing you to adjust the torque for fastening. The two-speed gearbox provides optimal speed and control, and the 29-piece titanium bit set provides up to four times faster drilling than standard drill bits. The kit comes with a 1.5Ah battery, charger and portable storage bag.
I don't know about you, but I need a little assistance when tightening screws because my hand cramps up. The 4V screwdriver is compact and lightweight, and the ergonomically-shaped handle paired with the 4V battery offers the twisting force I need. The screwdriver includes a Phillips head and slotted screwdriver bits.
If you have a big DIY project, you'll need the king of power tools. The 20V reciprocating saw is the go-to for remodeling and demolition. You can cut through virtually anything — wood limbs, plastic and metal — you name it, it does the job. If power blades are a little intimidating, the saw comes with a pivoting, adjustable shoe for maintaining better control, and the easy access lever makes changing blades a snap.
Ideal for tight curves and precision cutting, the 20V orbital jigsaw has four settings to cut a wide variety of materials. The lock-on switch allows for continuous uninterrupted cutting, and a built-in LED light illuminates the line of cut for increased accuracy.
Lawn and Garden Tools
Ideal for hard surfaces, this blower provides a lightweight and compact option so you don't get exhausted using it. The blower has an airspeed of 200 CFM and 90 MPH, and remember the 20V battery we featured at the top of this article? It's compatible with this blower, so you don't have to get tangled up in a cord.
So you need an edger, trimmer and a surface blower. This tool does it all and is ideal for small to medium yards. Use the trimmer to tackle the spots your mower can't reach like mulch beds, gardens, fence lines and sidewalks. Switch from trimming to edging with a simple rotation of the shaft. The blower provides 170 MPH of power, making it perfect for clearing leaves and debris from hard surfaces. It uses, you guessed it, the 20V battery.
This self-propelled mower starts with the push of a button. The brushless technology provides consistent power without bogging down and an extended motor life for many seasons to come. The mower is ideal for yards up to a half-acre in size, and the self-propelled technology is a great option for yards with slopes and hills. The mower can carry two batteries at once, which allows you to continue mowing when one of your batteries runs out of power. (The mower comes with one battery and charger.) And when you're done, you can fold the handles for compact storage.
