RYOBI in the US vs EU


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm in the market for a new impact wrench and I saw that RYOBI had came out with a new one: https://www.ryobitools.com/products/details/33287202898

So my initial thought was to just buy it, but where i live (Sweden) there is not one site that offers this, not in the rest of the EU as far as I know either... My second idea was then to ask my friend, who lives in the US, to buy it at home depot and then import it to Sweden. But then I saw that only the US had the new HP batteries: https://www.ryobitools.com/products/details/33287195480. My problem is that I need a EU charger for these batteries which I can't find. Any suggestions on what I should do?

Unless you want to get an adapter that allows you to use American chargers in Sweden, you're probably out of luck.  To the best of my knowledge, Ryobi Power Tools are a North American brand licensed by Techtronic Indrustries (TTI) and sold exclusively by The Home Depot who also own the rights to Milwaukee, Ridgid/AEG, and the relatively new Hart line of power tools, among other non-power tool brands.


It seems that Japan had a separate line of Ryobi power tools but there has been no mention of those for over 5 years, so they're probably discontinued.
