Yes it looks like a fantastic drill , only let down for me is no battery indicator

The Bosch at B+Q works out around the same price after 15% voucher, the Ryobi has more torque not sure if that means its better
#4
Is it any good on bricks & concrete for the diy'er though?


No hammer mode?

Now you mention it does not mention hammer action, or mention masonry in the drilling specs

Looks like the Bosch at B+Q is better

Think you are right m8, saying that depends what you are gonna use the drill for i guess

If you want a all rounder the Bosch, if drilling or screwing all day (oh er) then the Ryobi would be better

no point having a drill with no hammer setting unless you know you'll seldom drill brick

You can drill it as often as you like. You have 1.4hrs of charge on each battery so you have 3 hrs to do one whole hole.

Surely this can do a hole in brick within 3 hrs.......

Don't try drilling masonry without hammer mode - it will take 3 hours!
This is a good deal, if you want to drill masonry get a cheap electric, it will work out better in the end for the average DIYer.

I would think so for nearly twice the price

You get what you pay for.

Top brand with 2x1.5ah batteries.
#15
i rarely use a cordless on hammer mode since getting into extreme masonary bits from dewalt, bosch also have non hammer masonary bits, just a hard push during normal drilling and its fine for upto 8mm fixings in brick and standard concrete, most folks don't really go past 8mm with cordless anyway unless its sds cordless

The Ryobi, looks nice and feels great but really not comfortable at the quality of their automatic gears, just seems dodgy and likely to break in my opinion.

You are wrong about the torque:
Ryobi average apears:23+ max is: 55Nm
Bosch is average 58Nm plus its the 2nd generation Li-on battery so likely to last longer
But as it is two batteries it cost more

Thanks OP, been on the lookout for a couple of cheap lithium batteries for my one+ range(got about 6 different tools). Can't buy the batteries for less than £40 each.
#19
Can save another 20% on this until sunday by using the code TJSAVE20 fantastic price

£61.49 delivered bargain !
#21
can't add to basket plus it looks like they change the spec, unless I am mistaken.

from 2 batteries etc to

Ryobi CDA18022B 18V drill driver compact model supplied with a 1.4h Ryobi BPL1815 battery & a Ryobi BCL1800 charger.
#22
If you google CDA18022B everywhere sells with 2 batteries and the Ryobi site also states 2 batteries

http://uk.ryobitools.eu/Catalogue/power-tools-ryobi/Drill-Drivers-Hammer-Drill-Drivers-Screwdrivers-Ryobi/CDA18022B.htm

Some items on the site seems to be a bit wappy at the moment

Doesn't seem to add to basket now. I managed to get one before I posted on here though.

The ryobi corded drill appears to be a great buy too. If you click into the deal then it says you also get a screwdriver with it as well.

Surely the AEG model is better. Its more powerful has bigger capacity batteries and is a huge discount on the original price. Doesn't have that crappy autoshift gear thing either.

Nicd though - not lithium, does look a cracking price though

Edited By: alictait on Jan 08, 2011 21:19

It is lithium compatible, both the drill and charger will use them. If your careful with your nicad batteries, i.e. only recharge them when fully discharged they will practically last forever. Most nicad problems are from people recharging them half charged or even when already fully charged. Thats why you should always get a nicad drill with 2 batteries One to use to its fully discharged then replace it with the charged one and continue. The worst thing is a nicad drill with 1 battery that you keep topping up the charge for use later damaging the battery in the process.
#27
Trouble i used to find with Nicad is when i wanted to use the drill the batteries were dead, Lithium solves this problem as they loose about 5% a year or something and they are very light and don't need to fully discharge etc and are idiot proof no special care needed

But i don't use my drill very often, the Ryobi is a good deal same as the AEG but personally i would go for Lithium every time down to personal preference thats why i went for the Bosch drill LOL :)
#28
If you use a lithium based drill and discharge the battery fully then without charging store it and don't use it for many months the battery can die and thats completely die rather than erode its capacity so not completely idiot proof. However many of the better drills have cell protection which prevents the battery being nearly fully discharged by making sure a reasonable charge is left in the battery although you do loose some battery capacity for actual use because of this. The Bosch lithium drills have this and its a great feature because it does make them idiot proof so to speak. However many lithium drills don't have this or only keep a very small charge in the battery so you need to be organised to recharge your batteries before long term storage which makes them not idiot proof. I went for one of the Bosch drills as well but I also went for the AEG as the AEG is soo much more powerful. 48nm for Bosch and 64nm for the AEG. I often find 2 drills handy to have at the same time especially when doing pilot holes etc. Not a fan of the Ryobi Autoshift system seems a complete gimmick which will effect long term reliability. The AEG has a 3 year guarantee and none of that autoshift rubbish. Its a professional grade tool although entry level professional with a full metal chuck, gearing and obviously a more powerful motor beyond that of the Bosch.

Annoyingly the Ryobi's without autoshift tend to rate higher and work better than the autoshift models but you don't seem to see them now and even the other techtronic models like AEG, Ridgid, Milwaukee will probably end up with this feature across the range. Manual control of the gearing is much more flexible. If autoshift was worth having they'd fit it to professional drills but its just a gimmick that sounds more useful than it is.
