This isn’t our first rodeo with Ryobi power tools.  Ryobi is a brand I think is overlooked for a number of reasons.  First Ryobi has a boat load of tools in their 18V line up.  So pretty much any tool you will need, Ryobi has it.  Second it Home Depot.  Just about every town has a Home Depot and they are a staple to these stores.  So if you need to add to your line or have a problem and need to return the tool, no problem, a Home Depot is right around the corner.  The third items is quality to value.  I know some people really like the Dewalt or Bosch name, but lets face it.  Not everyone has the cash for those tools.  For the value of these tools, you get a lot of quality.  Now I am not saying they will compete against Bosch, but Ryobi will hold its own.  In fact I know a lot of small contractors who have Ryobi in their truck or van.

Take a look at this kit.  For $300 you can own all these tools.  Come on, who can complain about that.  You get all the major tools in one kit.  Sure the light is aweful and maybe these tools don’t have all the latest and greatest technology, but they will perform and get the job done.  All in all the tools have great balance and seem well made.
