Ryobi tools Japan - Made by DeWalt?

Hi all

First time poster here but thought I would start a conversation on a recent observation I've made.

I'm based in the UK so don't have access to any Ryobi Japan power tools but as I have an 'interest' in Ryobi tools (TTi) I stumbled across this last night.

I happened to find some images of some new brushless drills and impact drivers on a Chinese trade site and straight away recognised the tools even though I had never seen them before in my life. It then hit me, these are re-branded DeWalt brushless tools.

I have attached some images for comparison, and no, these haven't been photoshopped! The trade site links are:

NOTE: I have no affiliation with the above websites and report this purely for reasons of discussion. I also understand that Ryobi Japan have nothing to do with TTi.

Thanks

Martin

I think some one brought this up awhile ago. Ryobi in Japan had their own line of cordless tools, but the must have swapped to Dewalt oem'ed stuff when they updated their tools. It probably was done for cost reasons
