  1. MadPB

    I wanted to pick up this brushless drill to replace a much older Ryobi “blue” style that died. I didn’t need batteries or any of the other things that come in the kits, I just wanted the drill, so I was happy to find a seller that does that.The drill itself is great. Much more power and torque than the old one I had, and it’s also smaller and lighter which is great when I’m working between joists or in other smaller spaces where the larger drill just didn’t fit.Now, I’m pretty sure the sellers of these “drill only” are parting out the kits or something, so I was happy that it came with the manual, the Philips head bit, and what I thought was the belt clip. Turns out it’s a belt clip for… I don’t know what. Maybe some other Ryobi drill, but it’s not the right one for this. Oh well. I don’t always like having the belt clip attached because you can’t stand the drill upright if there’s no battery inserted, and usually I’m able to set the battery down on the paint tray of my step ladder. But there are times when that belt clip would come in handy.Oh well, if I really want it, you can get those from various parts suppliers.All in all, good drill, just know that you may or may not get all of the associated parts from the seller since I’m pretty sure Ryobi only provides these in the kits you can buy as a Home Depot exclusive.

    Wow what an upgrade from my 16 yr old Ryobi drill. Going from my old drill to this brushless is like going from an old 4 cylinder beat up car to a hungry V8. I always tighten my bits in by hand but on speed 2 this thing will burn your hand. I absolutely love it and even more happy at the price. Seems like a steal at $90. I beat the daylights out of my Ryobi power tools by dropping them off ladders and running them until they too hot to touch but they keep on going. My Dewalts at work don’t even seem to hold up to the same abuse. I just love the Ryobi tools and they keep getting better.

  3. Roger Rohweder

    I LOVE this drill. Powerful, ergonomic, and with excellent features. And I can swap the battery between this drill and my ONE+ Ryobi weed wacker. I am now considering the ONE+ router… I am becoming a big fan of Ryobi.HOWEVER: when I attempted to register this product (and could not) Ryobi support said this was probably part of a set, and should not have been sold individually, and therefore I could not register it, AND WOULD NOT HAVE A WARRANTY. Buyer beware…

  4. VacMaster1991

    I use a lot of tools and do a lot of diy projects. This Ryobi is a fantastic little machine. I am impressed with the power and torque. The 2 speed transmission makes speed control easy. The 24 position chuck makes sure I don’t over strip or overtighten screws. The trigger is responsive and the handle is rubberized and very comfortable. I really love the quick change bit chuck. The mag tray and built in bit holder make holding screws and bits very convenient. I also like how this drill included a belt clip though I don’t use it. Overall for this price you can’t beat it!

  5. K. Poole

    This drill works well and is compact and powerful. The biggest issue is the trigger. It’s not a true variable speed trigger, but instead has 5 distinct ‘steps’ of speed that it progresses through as you put the trigger. I can’t imagine it actually affects your ability to do anything with the drill, but it’s not as smooth as many of the other Ryobi tools I’ve got. The Chuck, which includes a normal locking function as well as a 1/4″ hex is nice.The drill was new and unused, but in generic packaging. I imagine warranty support from Ryobi is out. If you already have Ryobi batteries and want to upgrade the power of your drill, this is a cheap and easy way to do that.

  6. Emale

    I think this drill will impress just about anyone. I have been an early adopter of Ryobi 18volt cordless tools since the blue and yellow ones first came out. I have such things as the latest Ryobi 2HP garage door opener, several of their cordless tool kits, lanterns, fans, hand vacs and a variety 18volt landscaping tools – I guess I am just a Ryobi nut. So handling their 18v cordless drills is not something new at all for me but this brushless baby was an eye opener. The feel of the torque exceeded my expectations. I originally bought it for a friend as a gift and was so impressed that I decided to keep it and buy them something else (hahaha).

  7. DogFace

    A drill is pretty much a drill: just goes round and round. This model is smaller than its predecessor (which for me is about 25 years old?), back in the ancient days when Ryo was blue. Interesting feature is “brushless” which I tacitly understand, but really have no idea if it will make a difference. But the old one was stuttering, so the key items on this one are 1/2″ chuck, 18V, more compact size, and the light. Gotta love the light.

  8. Frank

    I bought this drill just to have a handy drill in my rat barn. That’s what I call my little out-building where I do most of my rough work with wood and metal. I got tired of forgetting to grab my Bosch 18v or my Craftsman 19.2 C3 when I headed out to the barn. So, the simple solution – have a drill already out there. Gave me an excuse to buy another tool, too. So now I have an 18v Ryobi 1/2″ chuck drill to play with. It works well, as do all the other One+ tools in the Ryobi line. Whether using it as a driver or drill, it functions just as well as my higher-dollar tools. Ryobi may not be the heaviest-duty tools on the market, but my experience with them has shown me that they are solid, functional tools. Perhaps the best bang for the buck in tools overall. This drill is no exception. I love it.

    I am very happy with this purchase. A brushless, more powerful drill in a smaller footprint than my older “compact” Ryobi model. Brand new in a plain box, not refurbished. At $28 the price was fantastic and I didn’t need to drive an hour to Home Depot. Includes the manual, belt clip, but no battery or charger (bare tool). Highly recommended.

  10. Marshall Thompson

    All my tools – and everything else! – burned up in my home in the Woolsey-Malibu wildfire last November. I have always bought the best quality I could afford since quality proves itself both in versatility and durability over the long haul. So I asked several construction professionals what brand they recommend and all of them said Ryobi. So far the tool is effective, powerful, easy tp use and I’m 100% happy with it. My recommendation is ALWAYS BUY A SECOND BATTERY. YOU CANNOT HAVE TOO MANY BATTERIES.
