Found 14th Jul 2012
I spotted this doing a bit of browsing after going for one of the toaster offers yesterday. Seems like a pretty good price for an 18v set with drill-driver, sander and jigsaw. Same set on eBay is selling for £150! Has free delivery to.

You had it replaced under warranty, no? How did the second one fare?
thats a cracking deal, under £30 a piece plus bag, nice find.
looks like it only comes with 1 battery

But for non-trade its still a cracking deal, free delivery too. You usually pay £60 for the drill/battery alone.

Wouldn't touch Ryobi with a barge pole, someone just said their strimmer lasted 10 time, my petrol garden vac lasted twice!. The follow on comment was 'replaced under warranty, how did that fare' well mine was replaced under warranty.... that lasted twice again!! course by then it was out of warranty, Do you really need all three items? I guess not, then spend the money on one quality item, just don't go near Ryobi
When you look at the specification of the products it looks like the normal price for such products, its a low end drill driver, basic sander and jigsaw with laser. Good value but not really a bargain as I see it.

Some of their vacuum cleaners are the worst on the market like Vax and Hoover and they source from some fairly low end chinese factories for some of their products. Some products are good like higher end Ryobi products and I have an excellent AEG drill but its a bit of a gamble.

I've got the previous version of this set, which uses the same batteries, mine came with the 2.4 rather than 1.4 battery. I'm in the middle of a long term refurbishment process on my house. I've used the drill and jigsaw 100s of times, through many charge cycles without any problems whatsoever. Given I've drilled and screwed well over 10000 screws (I've got the empty boxes to prove the numbers), to hold my floorboards down, with this drill I'm not entirely convinced a couple of comments from people who had problems with garden equipment is representative of this set. The 2.4 lithium battery has a fantastic life before charging is required, so the 1.4 shouldn't be too bad.

The jigsaw was powerful enough to cut the hole in my kitchen worktop, only problem was the ordinary none lithium batteries die too quickly, but that's not even part of this set.

The only problem I've encountered was my fault really, I was using the circular saw to cut 4cm solid oak worktops, and I didn't allow the saw to cool properly so burnt out a carbon brush, hopefully I can fix it, but if anything this just demonstrated the performance of the lithium cell.

I've ordered just for the battery, may or may not sell the bits.

If you can find all the other bits included here for £10 you're doing well...
Only owned two ryobi tools in my life. One a strimmer which lasted a few days and a drill which was broken within a couple of month. Aldi have a cordless drill for £20 coming up tomorrow going to be getting another one of them

You do realise that review was 4 years ago for a completely different model?

However that said the model number appears to be LCD18022B for the model included in this pack and seems to fetch reasonable money from other suppliers but I'm not convinced it will be much better than a shop brand unit which the same manufacturer also makes. Its really down to what you think about Ryobi as a brand. I have a colossol AEG 18V drill which has about 2x the torque of the model here plus additional features. Its a good drill but the plastic for the forward/reverse switch is fairly low quality and not very inspiring, still a good drill but of similar build quality with regard plastics as shop models and may actually be internally identical to some shop models as I'm sure many Ryobi models are. Thats the business Techtronics are in making huge numbers of such products and either branding them under the failed brand names they have purchased or shop brands for their OEM customers.

Just to balance out the strimmer negatives I've had an 18v blower and strimmer set bought off E-bay over three years ago and they've never missed a beat. Decent kit in my opinion.
The autofeed also works which was hopeless on the 3 B&D strimmers I had. Ended up modifying those and fixing large nylon cable ties to the head.

outside warranty - ever tried contacting ryobi? takes years for them to answer and even then they couldnt give a toss. i had a ryobi strimmer with battery start - checked an online manual recently and it states charge for no more than 3 hours, which my paper manual DOESNT state (lying s**m have changed it) - sorry but thats a design fault if the charger doesnt cut off after 3 hours, plus some info relating to that would have been nice when i bought the bloody thing

pull start doesnt work, too much compression i reckon

agreed for drills i go for dewalt or makita - some good deals on the former - if you want a wired/mains drill then i guess bosch are still cheap but good - mines had fairly heavy diy use but lasted 12 years so far and no problems - i would touch B&D stuff either - had a cordless drill that lasted about 15 uses, a cordless strimmer that lasted once, a corded strimmer that last a year
Have some heat
bought the set. the only thing that put me off the last 200£ Ryobi set deal was NICd batteries. Now after a little research I know all 18V Ryobi gear is compatible with Lithium batteries. I guess I will buy the 200£ set after all, and maybe a set of 2 Li batteries and a charger for 90£.

Qualitywise Ryoby drills and jigsaws are ok. I know a proffesional carpenter who fits kitchens and he uses Ryobies with no problem. Of course most chippies will use Makita and most sparkies will use Dewalt, but im a decorator
My dad is a carpenter, and has been using Ryobi power tools with no problems!

Never heard of nail guns?

I expect so, but I expect they've also heard of creaky floorboards and had bad experiences with a wrecking bar.
im back again. after a lot of browsing i realised batteries are the main problem for Ryobi, otherwise they are fine.

so check out this mains power adaptor for Ryoby One battery tools:

Ordered this set. Great find op... The jigsaw is £60+ on B&Q website without a battery (i'm mainly looking for a jigsaw as i have everythng else) and the battery is £49.99 so just there i've saved a wedge and gained a spare drill and sander with a pretty bag.

I've heard good and bad about Ryobi products, but at the end of the day you could buy a Bugatti Veyron and it might develop a fault. A high price tag doesn't mean perfection.
**** - I wanted the drill driver and jigsaw with lithium batteries. Found the best way was to buy them all separate so was doing thembit by bit - but this is better ****!
Thought this a cracking deal at first, until i realised it not hammer action drill
