The majority of members simply ignored them and got on with life. I've had one battery quit, but is under warranty working with Customer service in an effort to resolve. The Charger which was released in 2014 as part of this set and the drill set is prone to breaking. The new Roybi drill is more compact than this one, with the chuck much closer to the grip, and has a light on the base to shine where you are drilling. Rated 1 out of 5 by Helloman68 from Wow whats up with the high ratings! Grab your drill driver kit from your local Bunnings Warehouse today. This kit is powered by new lithium-ion batteries, the very best value in lithium-ion performance.
Using gas-powered tools makes us nauseous and, in our opinion, is less environmentally responsible. Low cost Disadvantages Less efficient Electrically noisy: The switching action of the commutators constantly creating and breaking inductive circuits creates a great deal of electrical and electromagnetic noise. So far I like it but the batteries with the set. Coupons are subject to change without notice. Packaging should be the same as what is available in a retail store, unless the item was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
I also have one of the electric drills it works great small and light enough to use for hours installing decking and it has never let me down even after thousands of square feet of decking being screwed down. But that xu2 brand is junk, though probably ok if you just need a drill for very light use. The lithium ones i bought are still going strong and charge super quick. The impact driver has a variable-speed trigger and 1600 in. Perfect for the job site or at home this combo kit features a drill driver impact driver reciprocating saw circular saw grinder Bluetooth speaker and work light. They are quite a solid unit with gd batteries, unfortunately they really are just for occasional use, putting in wall plugs etc, I have five other Ryobi one+ tools but are changing over to Bosch blue, if you never intend to do anything but light work with these tools you'll be ok I knew this when buying however dying after two yrs is poor buying new attachments is addictive. The 13mm keyless chuck also allows for a broader range of bits and uses.
Coupons are not applicable to prior orders. I can not believe Home Depot even backs this brand! Alexsim yep, others here remind me when I was a member of a club where the only 'claim to fame' of some 'noisy' members was a detailed knowledge of the constitution. The 45 minute charger also guarantees that there are no long pauses in the middle of jobs. I really wanted to like this tool since there's an abundance of 18V tool options from Ryobi, but overall it's okay. Not a powerful or professional drill.
. It lacks the power for anything more. I've had the Ryobi drills now non brushless for more than 3 years. Thought this was a good buy until it died out of warranty, first the fast charger then the drill, one month after warranty. If you grab a handful of dirt from any place on the planet you are likely to have more lithium in your hand than there is in the batteries with this set.
My battery first blinked red and then had a slow dimming of the red light. Lets be realistic - even tradies are using this now so comments around it being 'weak' are not completely realistic. Some electrical items, such as batteries and chargers, are not eligible for returns. No need to make it a pissing contest. Rated 4 out of 5 by HandyClan from We've used Ryobi for 20+ years. Tackle any driving and drilling tasks with ease with the Ryobi One+ 18V drill driver kit.

Refunds by law: In Australia, consumers have a legal right to obtain a refund from a business if the goods purchased are faulty, not fit for purpose or don't match the seller's description. I don't think they stock this at many bunnings though as I've never seen it and i visit bunnings weekly. That said, as long as you know what you are getting, the tools are still good, and still a decent value for the money, especially if you don't care about the missing features. If you are doing light work around hardwood, metal or brick, it's still fine.
See the seller's listing for full details. This kit also has the one hour charger instead of the better 30 minute charger. Instead of enjoying the club for what it was, all they did was create negativity with constant quoting of the constitution and getting off on it. Anyway I have had them for years and have no problem. The impact driver deliver 1,500 in-lbs of torque for the most demanding applications. To say the least i bought another one gladly, the investment lasts years on the jobsite. The real benefits are battery life because of better efficiency and motor life, which would matter to a tradie using it all day.
I have been using Ryobi for years and love the value and durability on a daily basis of use on the construction site. Coupons cannot be combined with any other coupon, offer, sale or discount. I don't have any xu1 tools, but I bought the cheaper ozito that was a fathers day special a few years ago, it looks pretty similar, maybe someone can check if they are from the same supplier? You can use practically any bit set in this because it's not an impact driver. Also it does charge a bit slow compared to other brands; I guess that's why they sell a fast charge. You will need to purchase a good set of drill bits and screwdriver tips. Can't go wrong with the 5 year warranty either.
