We're excited to announce that HART Tools received eight awards in 3 different categories from the Pro Tool Innovation Awards (PTIA). For those who don't know, the PTIA program highlights the most innovative products from around the industry. Major manufacturers compete against small companies with big ideas. One thing's for sure; the competition is always fierce.
Keep reading to see what the judges had to say about some of our favorite tools.
CORDLESS POWER TOOL CATEGORY
BEST IN CORDLESS FANS
20V Hybrid 12" Fan HPCF06
We like that HART's cordless fan can run on either battery power or with an extension cord. The 12" diameter and 1400 CFM are more than you get from most cordless fans, letting you cover larger areas with its cooling breeze. Learn more here.
BEST IN CORDLESS ROTARY TOOLS
20V Rotary Tool HPRL01
HART goes with an innovative rethinking of the popular rotary tool. For us, it started with swapping a cord or small battery for the cordless convenience and longer runtime of a 20V pack. In addition to the excellent 34,000 RPM max speed, this tool is highly convenient. Learn more here.
BEST IN CORDLESS SANDERS
20V 5" Random Orbit Sander HPSD01 Whether you're new to DIY or a weekend warrior, owning a random orbit sander is essential. And HART's tool does not disappoint. For a tool that's so easy on your budget, it offers excellent performance to go along with an easy-to-use design. Use it with a 2.0Ah battery for small jobs, or step up to HART's 4.0Ah pack when there's more to do. More details here.
BEST IN HATCHETS
14" Forged Steel Hatchet
What stood out to us was this tool's hatchet head. HART's hybrid design allows you to chop and split wood effectively rather than being one-sided. We also liked the face cutouts, which made removing the head easier. More info here.
BEST IN MULTI-TOOLS
4-IN-1 Folding Knife
More and more people today are looking for minimalistic, compact designs with high-use tools. HART's 4-in-1 folding knife is a great example. It has a knife, #2 Phillips bit, and bottle opener—what else do you need? It's so much more helpful than a pharmaceutical spatula or a toothpick. Find out more here.
HAND TOOL CATEGORY
BEST IN JIGSAW BLADES
10 PC. Jigsaw Blade Set
We agree that HART's jigsaw blade set is a great way for DIYers (and even new pros) to learn the art of jigsawing. For around $10, it's a high-value, low-cost way to get started. It also covers a multitude of applications, from wood-cutting to metal. Learn more here.
Wire wheels are a must-have accessory for a variety of material removal. HART puts a versatile set in your hands for less than $8. But don't let the price fool you. The ¼" hex shanks fit into both impact drivers and ¼" hex drill drivers. They remove material faster than some of those bargain-bin options. Read more here.
