Ryobi one+


So what do people think of Ryobi one+ tools?
I'm looking at getting cordless power tools and Ryobi has large range of tools

All of my cordless tools are Ryobi...

I've have 2 drills, sawzall, circular saw, right angle drill, hand vac....lights..not to mention the table saw and compound miter saw......and I use the dog crap out of most of them.

I basically built a 2-story garage and I'm just about done with a 2-story addition to my house. For the average DIY'r, the combo sets are a great buy....

Yes, Rigid, Milwaukee, Bosch and other high end units might be better....but not for the money. If your going to make a living using the tools....maybe not the best choice....but certainly the best value....

The key point....pick a brand and stick with it. Nothing worse than have 5 different cordless tools that use 5 different batteries....and chargers.

I agree, I've had them for years and like them.
There's a few of there tools in my opion are not worth buying.
The ciruler saw has very little power and kills the battery in no time.
The jig saw is pretty flimsy.
The chain saw is usless.

Make sure to get the impact driver, I use mine almost every day. It does a whole lot more then just drive screws.

Everyone rags on the circular saw....but....it's not made to take the place of a corded saw.....

I think it's great for ripping a sheet of plywood...I can typically get about 2-3 full rips before the battery gives out....

But where it really shines is when your up on the a ladder or scaffolding about 2-stories up...and need to make a quick cut....it's light...easy to use and cuts straight. I really like it when you have to cut out a section of OSB....set the depth to 1/2" and start cutting. Try doing something like that 1 handed with a skill saw up on a ladder....

I use the 18 volt impact driver and drill, they are great for the money. Also have the sawzall and circular saw but don't use them too much. The lithium batteries are pretty good but don't work we'll in the cold.

I've got these tools too. Love the 4.5" grinder.
Also, I believe they offer a "online only" radio/charger similar to dewalt's
