  1. I recently purchased the Ryobi P523 Jigsaw. I was going to use some Bosch T-shank scroll blades that I had used in my old Ryobi jigsaw on a project with my new jigsaw. Well, the T-shank Bosch blades will not fit in the new jigsaw and the specs list: For use with T-shank jig saw blades or Ryobi universal shank jig saw blades.The lock collar for the blade will not quite lock into place. The shank above the T is just a bit longer than the Ryobi blades I have. So, I go to my local Home Depot in Raleigh and well, they don't even sell Ryobi jigsaw blades. Really?? 99% of what they have is Bosch an
  2. A trip through the archives of Tools in Action and ToolGuyd displays how far the cordless tool market has come in the past decade or so. Early articles on each site capture the look of the 2008-2011 tool market, and there are many gems that cover the tools available back then--established brands, new products, and optimistic predictions of what the future would look like. Well, it's the future, and I'd venture to say that few of us expected the cordless job site to look like it does now back in the dark days of 2009. The tools have gotten smaller, smarter and become brushless, and a number
  3. I'm looking at a Ryobi cordless mower (RY40180) that has been out 2-3 years and find many reports with the mower stopping by itself due to the safety interlocks in the handle. I know others use this setup where the handle length has to be fully extended and the elevated position has to be set and locked before the motor will spin. The problem appears to be thru vibration, sections loosening up and/or bad microswitches causing it to 'trip' and the motor stops. Can anyone here confirm how much a problem this is and has it been addressed by Ryobi?
  4. Looking for a Miter Handle Shaft for a Ryobi Miter Saw model TS100L. part # is 089100113020 . Anyone know where I can find one?
  5. Has anybody had any experience with cheaper batteries for cordless tools? For example, buying a flagpower battery for a ryobi drill instead of a ryobi battery. Are any of these battery brands (flagpower, dosctt, creabest...) worth buying? They are a lot cheaper (sometimes only a third of the price) so they wouldn't have to perform as well as the proper batteries to be worth it.
  6. Hi, Is the base unit on the ryobi 18V ratchet wrench the same as on the multi tool? I want to buy a ridgid multi tool head to put on it but not sure if it is the same base unit, it looks the same but want to check first. Cheers
  7. I'm pretty sure I could figure it out, but if anybody has the fast track on R&R the laser on a Ryobi TSS101L Miter saw, it would probably save me some time and effort...
  8. Does anyone know where to find a chart on Ryobi 18v battery life? Want to make sure it's worth the money.
  9. I've known about this since January but was sworn to secrecy but now it has been leaked by a marketing company on Facebook I can post it. Ryobi have just this week announced its new 3.0ah slim pack, 6.0ah pack and 9.0ah pack for the 18V One+ system. No word on when they'll be available to buy but should be soon. These batteries won't replace any of the existing models as the cells and electronics are very different. These are being called high energy batteries as the cells used allow a lot more current than a normal 18v battery to pass into the tool which allows for b
  10. I have recently purchased a Ryobi 15 AMP 10 In Table Saw with stand (see image). I have put together the stand and noticed that the stand is not the best. It can barely stand. What I want to know is can I put this table saw on a dinner table since I don't own a hardware table?
  11. Ryobi has another vacuum on the market 3 gallon dry capacity Wet and dry cleaning capability 6 ft. x 1-1/4 in. extendable hose with transparent design for optimum visibility Pivoting air inlet port for easy hose management Utility nozzle and hose convert exhaust port into directional blower Flat top design for convenient stacking and storage Convenient on-board storage for hose and accessories Includes washable reusable filter
  12. Ryobi just announced they are coming out with some new tools: Ryobi Project Light - P790 and will retail for about $50 SPECIFICATIONS: • Lumen Output: High (lumen output 900), Medium (lumen output 600), Low (lumen output 100) • Runtime: 35 Hours on Low Mode using a RYOBI ONE+ High Capacity Lithium+ Battery • Weight: 1.1 lbs. • Power Source: AC extension cord or any 18V ONE+ Battery Ryobi Drywall Screwgun - P225 and will retail for about $100 SPECIFICATIONS: • Brushless motor provides longer runtime, mor
  13. Hello all. I have been a long time dewalt user but have seen a few tools from Ryobi that I wanted to add to my arsenal. Not wanting to buy a bunch of new batteries I set out to build an adapter to use Dewalt 20v Batteries on Ryobi tools, WHILE preserving the protection for dewalt batteries from over discharge. Here's my solution:
  14. The title says it all. I'm considering buying a pulse driver in the eventual future and figured I'd gather opinions. I'm currently invested in Milwaukee with two 9.0Ah and three 5.0Ah batteries, and have two 4.0Ah and one 2.0Ah Ridgid batteries. However, Ryobi offers some unique tools, so eventually Lime Green tools may supplement the Yellow, Red, and Orange ones. Conveniently, all three companies have a version of the pulse driver--the Fuel Surge (Milwaukee), Stealth Force (Ridgid), and Quiet Strike (Ryobi). Intuition tells me to buy the Ridgid kit as a way to amass more batteries and ex
  15. What is the best tool platform. Debatable but manufactures have there strengths and unfortunatlly have there weaknesses I perfer Makita, Dewalt etc what do you perfer and what are your opinions.
  16. I would like to get my hands on a set of ryobi batteries and fast charger. Would like to get a small battery like the 2.5 Lithium + and a 5.0 battery. I think once you have the batteries your sorted for everything else.
  17. Hi, I am just looking for some opinions on Ryobi's cordless nailers? For the $ I think it could be a decent purchase, however, I don't want to buy junk either. Any information that anyone can give me would be much appreciated. Thanks, FB82
  18. I've not seen a compiled list of warranties, and how to go about filing a claim, but may have missed out on something. However, I also want the experience of others, on their brand and what is included for warranty claims. Also, I think it would be great if there could be warranty information and personal experience on ANY tools that required warranty claims, cordless, corded, air, hand tools, anything goes here would be great!

  19. All about ryobi products.
  20. Anyone know the real torque ratings for this impact? I was looking on Ryobi's website (in Australia) and it says the torque ratings are 50/100/270 Nm (443/885/2400 in-lbs). I am finding that very hard to believe but I can't fine anywhere that states otherwise. http://www.ryobi.com.au/products/details/18v-one-brushless-impact-driver
  21. Looks like Ryobi also has a refreshed Trim Router coming out this year. It looks very similar to the Ridgid model, with the exception that it is not brushless. Price is going to be $69 https://www.ryobitools.com/power-tools/products/details/18v-one-palm-router
  22. This was the conversation I had with Ryobi when I was informing them about why I was frustrated with my batteries that won't work anymore. Guess I'll be looking at Ridgid from now on. Comments 2014-04-21T23:59:23-04:00 I would like to say that I am extremely disappointed in the One plus Li-Ion batteries that I have. I was given them as a gift since I owned a set of Ryobi One plus tools. In less than a year and a half 2 batteries are dead. My charger blinks red then green pretending to charge them then stays lit on green. When I grab the batteries (either one) none of them work. I have alw
  23. Ok, so to repeat myself, looking hard at Ryobi and Rigid for my first lithium tool set. I feel like what I really need to complete some home projects is a impact driver and a 6.5 inch saw. Really impressed with the state of tech at the moment and the price points, but still need to be somewhat frugal. I would like to purchase an impact drill with speed control but still have a 4 ah battery for the 6.5 saw. Ryobi currently does not have a kit with these options. Should I wait until they possibly roll this out? (When would that be? Guesses?) Or ju
  24. Hi, I have been given an old Ryobi SDS-Max rotary hammer drill, ED-450E (for UK/Europe). The plug is missing & label is damaged & i need to know whether it is 220-240v/50hz or 110v/50hz (yellow plug for construction sites, its definitely NOT 120v/60hz for the US. From the Parts Lists & diagrams I've found there seems to be no distinction between the 110v & 240v models & the brochure dosen't list the voltages. I asked Ryobi Technical if the ED-450E is a dual voltage drill & therefore all spare parts are the compatible (except the plug & label);
  25. I was just looking at Comp56 post about the Ryobi combo kit. I happened to be looking at it on the HD site too! I was wondering what people's thoughts were on which Brand line to get into for a homeowner. I really am not invested in a cordless line, I have two Craftsmen 18V tools. I have a few things on my short list right now for jobs around the house: Garage Opener Install, Vinyl Fence Install, and in the near future finishing out a basement. What do you all recommend? The $199 to start with Ryobi seems reasonable, not sure of quality overall. But I know Milwaukee see
