When it comes to homeowner tools, I can’ think of any power tool manufacturer that comes close to Ryobi. Ryobi has a wide range of power tools, advanced features while all offer a great price, which brings me to why you are here, the Ryobi Drill – Driver Kit. If you are looking to get started in a brand or want to upgrade an older drill, Ryobi is a great option.

The drill can provide up to 500 in. lbs of torque using a 9Ah battery so this can be a powerful drill for those tougher applications. The drill is compact and also lightweight weighing only 2.7 lbs.

On the base of the drill, there is not only an LED light to light up your work area but there is a magnetic holder to hold small fasteners or washers.
Ryobi Drill-Driver Kit – Impressions
While this is a homeowner drill, we wanted to see what it can do and if you can drill or drill some serious holes. We broke out the 5/8″ drill bit and the 1-1/2″ spade bit.
As you can see, it performed both operations. What you can’t see, is how easily it performed these tasks. For use, we know Ryobi is a great drill but it is always impressive to see a drill rip through the material with ease.
Ryobi Drill-Driver Kit – Wrap Up
The bottom line, this is a great drill to upgrade or get into. Ryobi doesn’t just offer the most power tools for any homeowner, but they are inexpensive and offer professional features. Best of all, they are offered at The Home Depot.
The drill is powerful considering it’s designed for the homeowner. While it would be nice to see a 4Ah battery included in the kit, I really can’t complain. The kit has the drill, two batteries, a charger, and a bag for under $100.
