Speed Up Storm Cleanup With These 6 Must-Have Tools

After a big storm passes, the first thing we all do is assess the damage to our homes, yards, and neighborhoods. Small storms may down some leaves and twigs, but for more severe storms you may have downed trees, branches, and other debris on your property that will need to be cleared. These 6 tools are must-haves for storm cleanup and will help you handle the job quickly and efficiently.


Before we go further, let’s talk batteries. You should know that all of our 40V outdoor equipment come with a 4.0Ah Lithium-Ion Battery and charger. You’ll love our 40V battery because it delivers the power of gas without the hassle. We also suggest you buy a spare battery to switch out when needed—you’ll be happy you did.

If you need to get the larger jobs done in a shorter amount of time, then the 40V 5.0Ah Battery is for you. It provides the long-lasting power you need to tackle any project that comes your way. It also has a handy on-board fuel gauge that lets you know when it’s time to switch batteries.
Last, but definitely not least, once you purchase our 40V battery and charger, you’ll have everything you need to power any HART 40V tool.


For a big cleanup, HART’s 40V 14” Brushless Chainsaw Kit is a great choice. Not only is this chainsaw light and easy to handle, it’s also provides plenty of power to get the job done. The side access chain tensioning and on-board tool storage allows you to make quick adjustments. Plus, it’s equipped with an automatic oiler for smooth cuts.


Is your yard covered in leaves and twigs? Then it’s time to break out the 40V Brushless Turbo Fan Blower Kit. It’s like an air bazooka—it gets under dense, damp or matted leaves to lift them up and move them forward. The power comes from its turbo fan design (air flows from the back of the unit directly through the tube). It also features a brushless motor for longer runtime and longer motor life.


We can’t stress enough how important it is to wear protective gear when clearing debris. Protect your knuckles and fingers with our Pro Impact Gloves. The molded thermo-plastic rubber padding provides excellent protection against blunt force impact. You’ll also appreciate the breathable, moisture wicking lining as well as the reinforced palms and fingertips.


When operating power tools, we always recommend wearing safety glasses. For outdoor work, HART’s Clear Flex-Fit Safety Glasses is ideal. The impact-resistant, polycarbonate lenses absorb 99.9% of harmful UV light while the anti-fog design minimizes moisture build-up.


Also we suggest wearing ear plugs, heavy work boots and protective head gear. Walmart has a great selection of hard hats to choose from.


In addition to your yard, check the exterior of your house for missing or lifted shingles, damaged gutters, shattered window panes, cracks and holes, dented siding and more. Here’s a complete list of post-storm cleanup tips and guidelines.

We’re here to provide the tools and resources you need to make life easier. Tackle storm cleanup quickly and efficiently when you #DoItWithHART.
