  1. I initially invested in the $200 Robi 16in mower. I would avoid this mower. It cut good but the handle was really loose causing it to be about two feet of the ground. The 20 in looks like it doesn't have that problem. If you have a small years you probably don't need the self propelled model. I have the ego 56v push mower that is not self propelled and it is easier to push than my old gas model that was still propelled. I don't think there is a noticeable power difference between the two brands so your might as well stick with what you are already invested in. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. What tools did you buy today?

    Made a small investment into the ego platform over the last month. The $100 blower made me a believer in this brand. I no longer loathe yard work. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. More new One+ toys from Ryobi

    For Some reason whenever companies bring there circular saws to the US they always take away dust collection port. I would be willing to pay the (I assume) $150-200 dollars this will cost when or if it comes over if they keep the dust collection port.
  4. Home Depot

    Great deal for a compact chain saw it you already have the battery Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. More new One+ toys from Ryobi

    I use 1/4 spiral bits, and the faster you spin them the less time they last. Lower speeds also give you a lot more control the over the router.

    Just a heads up, that router does not have speed control. This was a deal breaker for me. It also does not come with an edge guide like the ridgid.
  7. More new One+ toys from Ryobi

    I was in The DC area and stopped at a random Home Depot on the way home. It was the only one on the shelf. It works well. I would recommend it if you are invested in the platform.
  8. More new One+ toys from Ryobi

    Just picked up a sheet sander today. I don't understand why this is not included with the sander, I would rather have this part than the bag.
  9. Home Depot

    Went to go get one. but they were sold out, can confirm the pricing though. At least at the Hagerstown MD Store.
  10. 18V Forced Air Heater

    It requires a propane tank, which means it must be used outside. For the heat it puts out I don't really see it being useful. I would recommend to just get a heated jacket. They can be used inside and outside.

    I have been wanting a Sheet sander, and the price isn't too bad($40). But I know when I buy it, Ridgid will release one that is probably a little slimmer with better dust collection or at least a standard port size.
  12. Which mitre saw to get??

    Go for the Bosch. Dust collection is terrible on the m18 saw. If you are not going to be moving it often the Bosch will work perfectly for you. All sliding miter saws will have some deflection the further you have to extend the arm. Best practice is to flip the board half way through the cut, as long as you have a miter saw fence set up. Here is a video comparing the Bosch to the Dewalt saw on dust collection.
  13. Ryobi Brushed 18v Trim Router

    This is the older model. The 2016 version is based on the ridgid model, but is brushed instead of brushless. I've been looking for one locally but non of the home depots near me have them in stock.
  14. DDF083 New Brushless 18V 1/4" Hex Drill Driver

    I'm glad you posted this, been waiting for the 12v one to come out. Buying this will certainly be cheaper than investing in their 12v line. Plus I don't need any more chargers
  15. Brushless Sander

    Well I almost missed this little gem. In a small little square on their promotion page is an advert for a brushless belt sander. I have no need for this and don't really know what type of market there is for one. I don't imagine the battery life will be to good to replace a belt sander. There isn't even a product page for it yet. https://www.ryobitools.com/offerings/fallsavings?p=page_4 Ryobi also went on TIA toolathon, and showed all there new end of the year hardware. I don't know why they only showed off the new lights and a sawzall. Why are they not highlighting these unique tools? It seems like they are leading a new 18v platform that no one knows about (hot glue gun, palm router, and belt sander). I'm confused and excited. Hopefully Milwaukee follows suit, I want a 18v nailer that is light and powerful, and I think they are capable of pushing Dewalt and Makita to come out with better tools. I like where these tool platforms are taking wireless, and can't wait to see what the new year has in store for us.
