Ryobi Brushless Impact Driver


Recommended Posts

First off, I believe this isn't going to make it to the US but I believe they will release a version which matches there recent Brushless drill addition.


This hit ANZ a few months ago and has now hit the UK and I'm impressed.  I love the brushed Ryobi impact but the whole unit is a bit too big and the handle a bit chunky. This brushless model feels really nice in the hand with the slimmed down contoured grip.


Ryobi have retained their Tri-Beam LED's which is great and now incorporate a 4 mode speed/torque selector (basically Milwaukee's 4 mode system from the FUEL gen2 impact).  Speed 1 is around 50NM, speed 2 around 100NM and speed 3 is a massive 270NM!  The 4th mode is Deck Drive which basically starts off slow to allow the screw to bite into the material, speeds up then just before you bury the screw head it slows right down so you have full control of how far to bury the screw or makes it easy to keep it flush.


I've added this to my current brushless drill and now prefer these to my Milwaukee M12 FUEL models.
