This is my first post but looks to be a good price for the brushless drill with 2 x 2.5ah lithium plus batteries and the fast charger.

This is one of them deals where know it is a good bit of kit but the £150 tag far outweighs the product.

Not voted just my opinion.

makita 18v with 2x 3.0ah batterys charger and case for same price at screwfix, not brushless but better than ryobi any day, ryobi is for keen diy makita is a trade tool.

​Whilst to a certain extent I agree with you, on paper at least the ryobi has better spec than the Makita, with more torque, higher load speed, larger drilling capacity for wood, and a higher percussion rate, both have metal gearboxes. I'm not a trade user, but for a brushless drill this seems a good price, a comparable Makita brushless being around £320. If you don't want a trade tool this seems like a great option.

In this instance the Ryobi are a bettee purchase.

Been after a Ryobi charger for a while but they never go on sale unfortunately.

​Do I need to stop using my Ryobi kit for work then? I hope I've not been doing anything wrong for the past 12 years.

£160 now.

I'm kinda annoyed with Ryobi drill.
To be fair, it's taken a load of abuse.
Last year it started slipping out of gear - though that justified getting a new super-duper brushless one.
Nope, turned out to be the gear selector - dab of super glue and it's STILL working fine over 10 years later, so really can't justify a new shiny toy!

(Ryobi is owned by the same parent company as Milwaukee by the way, though are typically a little more cheaply made.)
