Is anybody familiar with the Ryobi One+ Range currently on sale in B&Q?

I am in the market for a few new power tools - drill, jiggy, circ.saw, impact driver etc. This 18v battery range seems reasonable at first inspection. Is Ryobi gear generally well made to mild/medium duty use?

Ive looked around the net/forums and found a few comments on this which seem to be generally positive, though mostly from 2008 time. Can anybody offer their opinions on a more recent experience?

I bought a pair of 18v drills on special offer some years ago, and was happier enough to buy another pair as the business grew. I still have them they work well, but the batteries are now failing, but thats only to be expected as they are now old and are only nicad. In conclusion I would think that the new range (including the batteries) can only be better than they ever where and would not hesitate in buying again. HTH

Chris,

Ryobi is a good solid make, I have a cordless screwdriver, and it is fine. Might be worth comparing prices against Screwfix, but as long as the batteries are 18v Li-ion should be ok, worth noting that the new Li-ion batteries will fit tools powered by the original Ni-Cads.
