Hey folks,

Anyone looked at or bought them? Think they are any good.... Website has the set for $149 which includes a freebie of a wide range of choices from 2 extra batteries to sawzall, etc..... Looks pretty interesting and the price is real nice.... Any input appreciated....

Dave

Got a 4 pc set a couple years back, maybe 3 or four years,I was never impressed with the battery life in the sawzall or circular saw,but in the drill it lasted a decent amount of time. Just had a battery rebuilt for it and so far it seems like it will last on a charge better than it ever did. That circular saw is handier than sliced bread. I am right handed and it just makes sense to have the blade on the left,where you can see your cut line, unlike the corded saws I own...Mine seemed to eat up a bearing in the first year by the noise it makes but still operates ok and is my go to tool when building anything wood.

Follow the battery charging and usage directions and you will like it.. don't leave the batteries on the charger once they are charged up...that is what killed mine according to the Interstate battery center that rebuilt it.

I have been using ryobi tools for a long time and think they are the best bargain out there. Have: ryobi planer, 18v drill motor,electric sawzall, r routers, 2 sanders, several 9.6 volt drill motors, belt sander. Have used them heavily and never a problem.

This isn't the same set, but about 5-7 years ago, my wife bought me a set that came with a cordless drill, small cordless skil saw, two batteries, and a charger. I have no idea what she paid for them, but I used the heck out of both.

Last spring, the batteries got so they wouldn't hold a charge very long. I was in HD one day and they had new individual batteries for $39.95. At the other end of the aisle they had packs of two batteries for $44.95. So, naturally, I bought a pack of two and was good as new.

BTW, that little cordless skil saw (5 1/2"?) is the greatest thing ever with a plywood blade installed backwards for cutting vinyl siding. Only thing is, you have to tie the blade guard back and make sure it's stopped completely before you set it down.

Last year I bought an 18V refurbished Ryobi set with 1/2" impact, drill, sawzall, 5" circular saw, charger and two batteries. All work super except
the two refurbished batteries don't hold a charge
long enough to use any more. I have found out that their best batteries cost $140 each and require a different charger than I now have. I believe that I will get the original batteries rebuilt.

Hello Dave. I received a set for a xmas gift. My wife new I was looking for a couple of new batteries for my old drill(not a ryobi). So to my surprise she got this set for me. As said, it came with 1/2 inch drill(2 speed variable), sawzall, 5 1/2 inch skill saw, flashlight, 2 batteries, charger, and nice storage bag. I have only used the drill so far and it works fine. In time I will find out how durable they are. Sorry I can not tell ya more. Good luck in your decision! SHON

I Have had the set for years, use it for home and shop repairs I have been very happy with the set even bought an extra drill. I cant think of the last time I used my corded power tool after buying the set. you willl have to get extra batteries.

i use rigid tools and really like them (except battery life)
but my dad has the ryobi 18v one+ set and really likes it.
has had the drill for 4 years or so...gets lots of use out of it...just needed a new battery last year...wasn't holding much of a charge.
bought him a 2nd drill (one to keep in the truck)and circ saw this christmas and we were just using the circular saw the other day and commenting that it did a nice job with some small cuts...
i think they are definitely good tools, especially considering the price as compared to other brands

12 years ago I built this shop with a ryobi 12 volt. Hung over 100 sheets of 1/2 inch OSB, countless electric boxes, light fixtures, drilled a jillion holes for wiring, and a million other jobs. And I used the hell out of that little flashlight. Best bang for the buck I ever got from a hand tool

I bought one last summer. Has 2 batteries, charger, sawzall, drill, 5 inch skill saw and of course a flashlite. I've had no problems and am happy with it. This is around the house use, not commercial use. Incidently, they had the same model number sawzall, battery and charger for $106.
