Walmart is introducing a new and exclusive tool brand, Hart Tools. The new Hart Tools will be launching hand tools, power tools, accessories, tool storage, and even outdoor power tools.
You might already know the Hart name, as the brand previously offered hammers, tiling tools, and several other hand tools.
As you might know, Hart Tools is a TTI brand, with some of their sibling companies including Milwaukee Tool, Ryobi (in most of the world), Ridgid power tools, Empire Level, Stiletto, and AEG.
In other words, Hart is launching with a well-developed and well-experienced supply network, and with much corporate know-how about how to design and produce good tools.

The Hart cordless power tools will be engineered around a new 20V Max Li-ion battery platform. There are a couple of kits and combo kit options to start, and even a brushless drill/driver kit option.
Information is limited at this time, but from what I can tell, Walmart and Hart did their homework and the new line of DIY-focused tools, accessories, and equipment looks to be off to a great start.
tool swill tools will be available in-store as Walmart refreshes their tool departments, and the full selection will be available online.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Speaking of which, I’m really liking the color scheme, which looks to give the tools a modern look, at least in my opinion.
With this much effort being put into the initial launch, I am very curious and eager to see what comes next.
