Or you could buy the tool on its own and use batteries you already own with a £15 adaptor from Amazon.

I know they do adaptors for DeWalt/Makita/Milwaukee
I’d recommend a higher capacity battery to get the full potential out of this!
As I said a good investment if you need the battery and charger...

These are two very different products with different purposes.
For a starter kit I think it’s a bit expensive. I have my Ryobi starter kit from B&Q for £200. I looked everywhere and they had the best deal to start with as a home diy set. Now I’m just buying body only tools.

The CBS offer only has a 1.3Ah battery & no impact sockets, but a slightly better charger. So you will have to weigh up, which offer suits you better.

Plan on getting a 4ah + battery on top of this kit, the impact wrench draws more currrent than the number of cells can provide.
Youll get nothing like full power and theyll go flat in seconds. i.e nullifying the benefit of the tool.

You can claim a free 4Ah battery with any garden kit purchased on the Ryobi websites.

Yeah, I noticed that Ryobi seems to be the only manufacturer managing to get WORSE performance put of a brushless motor. Weird.
Love my impact wretch, Like others have said I would personally use a 4ah or above battery with it.

Also don't buy the amazon and ebay knock off battery's for this tool. It draws to much power and it shuts off at full torque. The knock off's are fine for drills, sanders, some saw's etc, just not this.

This does come with a screw bit attachment too, for people looking for the impact drill aspect it will double up as one. I have used mine to screw 150cm screws into wood and it managed the job. However I mostly use mine for auto motive jobs.

Even with a 2ah it will do wheel nuts fine. Mine gets off 99% of nuts. The odd one, I have had to whack out the massive breaker bar.

The best thing about this and all impact wrench's is that even when I forget to loosen the nuts while on the ground, they will still work fine with a wheel in mid air. Same reason they are brillaint for cranks etc

@TheShadowWalker I just remembered I have had to do a few run's in alternate directions before to crack really stuck old wheel nuts. Took like 30 seconds to crack it off, thought I was going to break the thing with how hard I was pushing it but its fine and that was well over a year ago and it still runs fine now.

Do remember no matter how good the brand they have a shelf life due to part wear inside them but I doubt you will ever hit that as a hobbyist.

I'm really deep into the Ryobi tool set and they haven't put a foot wrong yet. I'm also an ars3 and mistreat my tools, doing things I really shouldn't for a quick way out. For example slamming my reciprocating saw into the ground to cut tree/bush roots out. Got mud and dirt in all the wrong places . Poor thing still works perfectly.

IMO they are 80% as good as premium brand tools and 50% to 30% less in price. Sooner or later a very good deal will come up again like a brush less drill and 2x 4ah batteries for £150 for example, perfect time to get cheap batteries and sell off the drill if you don't need it.

The only one that comes in the box is a 1/2in to the hex a normal screw bit uses. If you can find a 1/2in to drill bit chuck or a hex to drill then I can't see why not.

Something like this..

Capacity and C-rating are two separate parameters which are used to calculate what maximum current can be drawn from battery (parameter which you are interested in)
robotics.stackexchange.com/que…wer
As all ONE+ batteries are interchangeable the maximum current will be the same despite the capacity otherwise you would risk damaging smaller batteries.

Why bigger capacity battery works better for you? As battery is discharging voltage is dropping, lower voltage means lower current, lower current mean tool outputs less power. From freshly charged brand new battery you'll get same output level despite capacity, but smaller capacity will loose ability to deliver maximum power way quicker than high capacity battery

Well I have tryed 2ah on bolts and a 4ah the 4ah took it off but the 2ah could not move it my 6ah also could and was more powerful than my 2ah I did a test tightening it with the 6ah and trying to remove it with the 2ah and the 4ah all on a full charge and my results were the 6ah was more powerful.

My understanding was so long as the 2ah was the "newer" Lithium+ battery it should have the same peak power output capabilities as the larger batteries (4ah, 5ah, 6ah and 9ah) that are all Lithium+ be default.

There is a chart somewhere showing that power comparison between Ni'cad, Lithium and Lithium+. I think it was 35% extra power from Lithium to Lithium+. For example I think all 1.3ah batteries are Lithium and not Lithium+

This being said I have seen a youtube review somewhere that did also conclude that 2ah wasn't enough to power the 18v lawn mower and they needed 5ah. I will be honest I use 4ah just fine in my mower, 3rd party batteries struggle though.
Just to add one more point

My two cents would be to sell off the 2ah battery for £25/£30 and then use that money plus £30 extra to buy at 4ah currently £58

amazon.co.uk/Ryo…h=1

Forgetting the power output debate, the 4ah is miles better for product expansion then the 2ah anyway. 5ah and 6ah are often only worth it when on sale and IMO only have slight advantages. I would like a 6ah for my mower, as I need 1 and a 1/4 4ah batteries to cut it completely but meh to paying the extra money.

The 4ah or above are fine for every single tool Ryobi do in the One+ 18v Range. I have an expansive range from a normal drill to table top Mitre Saw and All I have is 2x4ah, 1x2ah and then a couple of knock off brands I use as fillers. Personally I would never touch the 1.3ah one's.

If you're ever looking for very very power hungry tools. Chainsaw and even lawn mower (Depending on garden size and cutting jobs) I wouldn't get 18v in the first place and would go with 36v range.

Also side note.... The amount of people that sell Ryobi tools on after doing the home jobs they needed it for is insane. When Covid calms down check Facebook market place and you can find some insane bargin's. I wouldn't touch a second hand impact wrench, but I have bought things like the orbital sander with a 4ah battery for £40 off there and a reciprocating saw body only for £25, Strimmer for I think £20 as well. As these are only aimed mostly at DYI'er, most of the times the second hand tools are in great condition. I even managed to get a hedge trimmer with the labels still on for £30. Attached a picture just to show you what I mean.

I personally haven’t yet heard of people actually knocking off the battery. Every time I have said “knock off” I meant 3rd party, like the brand Flagpower.
Like I say I’ve never seen a fake direct copy of the Ryobi battery. Doesn’t meant there won’t be some out there.
Just judge the seller and see if you think they sound and look trust worthy/check their review level if they have one as a seller.

I personally like buying them with a tool. That way I know while used it should be genuine and you can often get them super cheap.

For example that saw and 4ah is up for £60. I suspect they would take £50. There profile does seem a little weird but some sellers let you PayPal the money. So it’s risk free really.

Weirdly this is the one tool I wouldn’t get in brushless, I find it hard to believe but according to Ryobi’s website it has much lower torque in Brushless. 270nm compared to a max of 400nm for this one. Someone smarter then I, might be able to explain that one to me?

That one you linked looked good but always haggle on price. That seller is also selling other tools, so seem legit.

Don’t be put of by dust. Ask the seller how long they have had and if what they used it for. You might find it was for a project and they just can’t be bothered to clean it. My Sander came dusty with a dusty battery and it’s been great so far.

Depending on use you will get years out of it. If you use it daily then don’t buy Ryobi. Get a trade rated tool. If you just want this for weekly and monthly use it’s fine for a long life.

No idea on deal length. I suspect it’s to get rid of old stock. The 2ah batteries seem to be going out of favour.
You can often pick up body only units for £80, so imo worst case of you miss this, just get the body and then a battery and charger off of Facebook or eBay etc

Also the reason I wouldn’t get a second hand Impact wrench is, if they are abused they could have major cog wear. Same advice would go to any of the range that like the wrench, has very heavy strike motion, like the brad nailer. People might disagree but that’s my advise.

No idea how you register it though, guess it’s on a leaflet in there.
Just when you get the chance swap out the 2ah for something larger.

On a side note if you don’t have tools already. I personally love the Halford Advanced. Not the best tools money can buy but often on sale and have lifetime no fuss replacements. I snapped a converter socket by being stupid and I popped in store and they just replaced it without a receipt

Just wanted to throw in my recent experience with Ryobi, my 3 year old jigsaw had failed, they sent a courier to collect it and replaced it with a brand new one in just over a week, no quibbles. Can’t fault them at all.
