Hart 20V Drill and Impact Kit Features
The kit comes with a drill/driver, an impact driver, 2 – 2Ah batteries, a charger, and a bag.
As you can see, everything does fit in the bag. While it’s not organized, it will fit in the bag for storage.
The drill is built around a brushless motor which means more power, longer runtimes, and longer life. The drill weighs in at 2.5 lbs.
The tool has a metal chuck but is protected by a plastic outside which can help protect your work. The drill does not feature a locking chuck so it’s just as tight as your hand can get it.
On top of the drill, there is a two-speed selector. Speed 1 is 0-500 while speed two is 0-1,800. If you are performing high torque applications, use speed one.
The drill features a 24 position clutch with a drill only mode.
One feature I love about this tool is the grip. The handle and grip are both extremely comfortable.
The trigger is designed for single finger use and isn’t bad for feathering and keeping the drill at a consistent speed.
On the back of the drill, you can store an extra bit.
Hart Impact Driver
The Hart Impact Driver weighs in at 2.5 lbs and also uses a brushless motor for efficiency and longevity. The impact driver can deliver up to 2,200 in-lbs of torque.
The driver features a 1/4″ hex chuck which does not require a tool to change bits.
As with the drill, the impact driver features the same comfortable grip.
The trigger is identical to the drill and easy to keep at a consistent speed.
On the base of the impact driver, there is an LED light that does a decent job lighting up a darker area.
Hart 20V Drill and Impact Kit Impressions
As a homeowner, you won’t be doing high demand tasks but yes, you want that ability in case something comes up around the house and you need that extra power. So we tested the drill and impact with a 5/8″ drill bit, 1″ spade and 3″ screws.
We ran the drill bit through a 4×4 and it easily went through without any issues. We do recommend you using the 1st speed for higher demand applications. So if you are doing smaller projects around the house, this drill will be able to tackle it.
Next was the spade bit which does require more power. As you can see, no problems or issues. So if you need more power, the drill will be able to keep up with you.
We ran a bunch of 3″ screws which is not normally associated with household projects. We had more than enough power to drive these screws deep and didn’t have the tool cutting out on us.
Hart 20V Drill and Impact Kit Wrap Up
For the homeowner, the drill and driver are a great way to start building your power tool collection. Both offer good power for the homeowner. While I wish the drill was a little smaller and had better ergonomics, it’s a great drill for those who need one around the house for monthly projects. Considering the Hart line already has a large line of power tools and will only grow, this is a great line to jump into.
