Review for Ryobi 18V Cordless Combi Drill by Pyro Control
9th April 2021

Great tool. I use this practically everytime I go to my workshop. I have used one during a house restoration and even though it shows signs of heavy use it still works perfectly. It is light enough to use all day and with a 5Ah battery seems to last forever between charges. Great starter tool for the Ryobi range of cordless tools. Over the last 10-15 years I have bought 4 of the Ryobi drills (none have broken I just wanted to upgrade) and the latest brushless variant is by far the best with noticeably improved performance.

I owned one of these drills when first started out mainly becuase of price. Its a nice comfortable drill to use but is definitely not upto the constant heavy use required by a professional trade. The drill lacks power and overheats with constant use. If your a keen diy'er then it would be a great addition to your toolbox for the price with the added bonus of the one+ system meaning the batteries are compatible with other tools in the range.

Not the best drill for serious or even semi-serious use ! It doesn't like moderate, continuous use and tends to struggle on the odd occasion I've had to ask more from it. The chuck isn't the best as it slackens off way too easily and has quite a bit of lateral movement in it.

This drill is for diy or beginners. I used it before and ended up losing all the smoke out of it but I was definitely over using it. Would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a handy drill around the house or starting a new job.

I've had this around 10 years and it has seen heavy use and is still going strong. It has outlasted 2 other drills. If you put a 4 or 5ah battery on it you'll be amazed at the difference.

Have this drill as a spare and it’s great to use and well built. Nothing compared to the bigger brands but you can’t go wrong with having a spare drill just incase.

Affordable price and has been capable of carrying out all the jobs it's been needed for as a plumber

Batteries are great and long lasting although not the quickest charger

Alright for the DIYer or kitchen fitter putting doors on, it's not going to stand up to the likes of Dewalt performance but then you've not paid Dewalt prices

Don't know what it is about this brand but always thought of it as a diy'er brand. What's people views on it ? The interchangeable batteries across the whole range look interesting. Just can't get over the fact if I walk onto a job with these the customer will have the same one in a nice clean box tucked under the stairs for hanging pictures up with.

Step dads got a ryobi and its tourqe was poor compared to my hitatachi.

Answered on 19th April 2017 by M S interiors

I use quite a few of them and find that they are good value for money and the fact that ryobi keep the design the same so old and new tools use the same batteries is really helpful as most other brands tend to change the design so when they bring out a new range you have to replace everything!

I have a lot of these tools. The sds drill is shit and the circular saw blew up after 3 uses. However, both were replaced under warranty no fuss. The impact driver is great I have 2 that have had a hard life and just won't die. The multi tool is great, the 4inxh grinder sucks the life out of batteries in no time but it is another tool that's had a hard life and not give up. Love having that on a roof to cut a slate in rather than lugging up my 110v transformer... I have bought 2 5amp batteries and the impact driver came with a 1.3. You definitely need a rapid charger but I rarely run all 3 out and if I do it's me forgetting to plug it in. Overall I think great tools I'll buy more in the future.

Answered on 11th August 2017 by JPC Plumbing and Heating

I have the ryobi impact driver and combi drill. Both been up to what's been thrown at them to date.

Reliable and good battery life. Good value for money and personally not found much difference to the makitas Ive used.
