New Ryobi brushless drill in a kit $99, not the hammer drill version.

+6 Deal Score
6,244 Views
Brushless drill comes with 2 - 2Ah batteries, belt hook, black charger and a soft case. Couldn't find it online yet, but it's at the stores. It looks like the "regular" price is $120, so not super great, but now that the brushless hammer drill kit went up to $130 this is probably worth it for some.

In my limited experience, I would put Ryobi below Milwaukee & DeWalt, in the same bucket as Kobalt, above Craftsman and B+D. Obviously varies by tool. Fine for average home use.

I have a BD drill, Craftsman drill, and Ryobi drill. All were bought at great prices from previous SDs. Brushless seems to have the greatest advantage in terms of run time and overall tool life. Is there a major advantage in performance or would we be expecting the same? I sometimes use my Craftsman drill with a 1/2" adapter and 22mm socket to use with my scissor jack to jack up my cars and it never has enough juice to get the car on jack stands even when set at the max level. I've even tried the Craftsman impact gun and it has the same result. Would the Dewalt be more powerful?

Generally speaking, I'd put B&D/Craftsman at the bottom, Ryobi/Kobalt in the middle, and DeWalt//Milwaukee at the top. However each company offers such a wide range of quality/prices that there is significant overlap depending on where the tool falls in their range. This Ryobi is near the top of their drill offerings and can probably hold it's own against the lower end DeWalts and Milwaukees (I don't know the specs of this new model, but the hammer drill version is impressive).

Note that even though it is not available online, stores will likely have it in stock. As seen in the OPs pics.

Which DeWalt and Craftsman are you are talking about? The high end DeWalts would be more powerful than anything Craftsman has, but a low end DeWalt is weaker than a higher quality Craftsman. Just the fact that a tool is brushless does not necessarily mean that it will be more powerful, but tool companies typically put brushless motors in their higher quality models and brushed in their economy models.

You need an impact wrench. I have the Ryobi one and have used it extensively to work on my cars. It comes in very handy to work on suspension and to do DIY brakes/tire rotations etc. Model I own is P261. All other brands have impact wrenches too if you don't care for Ryobi.

In my experience Ryobi has been very reliable. I have had a drill for 15 years or so (came in a set with Circular Saw and Reciprocation Saw) and it finally started to go out a few years back. The saws are still going but I have used the drill a lot more. It went thru 2 homes and a lot of home DIY stuff. For a Homeowner they are great.

I had a Ryobi drill last me 19 years. I smoked it driving some 1/2" lags into timbers. It came in a set with a jigsaw and the jigsaw still works great.

Ryobi cordless? Probably, just checkin'. My experience with Ryobi cordless wasn't as good but like everything, YMMV.

If it was one of their cheap low end models, then that isn't surprising. This drill is quite a bit better than their economy models.

I have the 19.2v Craftsman C3 drill that I purchased years ago but I always see contractors using Dewalt drills which I had assumed to be superior to other brands.

Yes, I have a Craftsman impact wrench and it doesn't lay down much power but it could also be caused by my lithium battery. I don't have the XCP battery, just the smaller lithium one they packed with the impact wrench/drill kit. I'll double check my impact wrench speed settings in a bit, but I found it strange that a tool designed for maximum torque wasn't giving me more power than a typical drill.
