Ryobi One+ Combi Drill. Includes 2 batteries. £69 c&c using code at diy.com (B&Q)

Found 2nd Apr 2017
Use code: CLUBDCWY5 for price.

Usual price £100. Reduced to £84 at the moment. £69 with code.

I've had one of these for a while and its taken some abuse. I've now invested in more one+ tools based on how impressive this performed. I'm no tradesman. But I've renovated 3 houses top to bottom and this has done just fine so should stand up to the casual diy'er

Combi Drill. 2 'one+' batteries and on the basis they're £40+ each. This is a steal.

Hopefully helps someone out.

I, too have a collection of Ryobi One+ tools and rate them well for 'extreme DIY' use. I know professionals who use them with good results too.

This is a very good deal though you do need to bear in mind that it includes the basic 1.3Ah batteries. Fine for drills and similar lighter draw tools but you'll soon become very frustrated with them if you use them on a circular saw or other more demanding tool. They do One+ lawnmowers now - I don't think you'd get far with a 1.3Ah battery!

Definitely hot at this price provided you know what you're getting.

OP: I can't see where to enter the code. Can you advise please?
Threw me too. At the bottom of the basket page +Add code, +add card and +add club or something similar. Click the + next to the code one and paste it in there.
bosch screwfix

£100 4ah battery

torque is probably higher on the bosch to.

yes but it's 40% dearer - I'm sure for another £40 or so on top someone could find one better than the Bosch
I'm looking to buy a drill, but I am torn between this Ryobi and this Bosch.

Any thoughts on which would be the better option?

That's a deal on its own.
Excellent drill for the money.
Only one battery, but it's 4.0ah so will do half a shift and charge over a break of necessary.
Bought another as a spare as my Hilti was stolen recently. Cheers AzeemB!

At this price the Ryobi is a better drill.
If you are willing to increase your budget by £30 then go for the Bosch drill AzeemB mentions from Screwfix. Maybe overkill for DIY, but a good bit of kit used by the trade.
Bought the drill and 2 battery combo last year and have since added a torque driver. Both have been used HARD (new house DIY) and not let me down.

Great kit for the money
Can this code be used if i want to go into the store and buy it now?

Thanks for that. To be honest I think the professional Bosch would be a bit overkill for me putting up a few shelves and general DIY. I've had an offer of £66 for the Bosch I linked to on Flubit. Would you still recommend the Ryobi at £3 more?

It all depends if you plan to buy more 'bosch' tools or more 'ryobi' ones like the impact driver. While the drill is on special offer check the prices of other tools in the range you might want and decide if they are reasonable.

The 1.3Ah batteries with this deal are cheap and nasty, and I don't think they will last as long as the 1.5Ah batteries. It seems to be a battery mostly bundled with drills to keep the price down.

I did click and collect. Initially said tomorrow at 1pm. Then i got an email 30 mins later saying it was ready as i collected.
I Love this drill made a great gift for my son this Christmas and he loves it the independence of no wires and ease of use.
had one of these now for around 5 years only the one battery though and it has had some abuse but still going strong and holds a decent charge.
Would highly recommend
I have pretty much the whole bunch. They're not exactly Makita but they are perfectly serviceable, for the price there is not a lot to compare, the ole 1 battery for them all is brill.

I think the modular nature of the Ryobi would be a better investment. You'd be able to add another of their tools and buy just the bare unit without a the batteries The Bosch one you are looking at is not one of the rugged professional range, whereas the Ryobi can compete on a semi-serious level, albeit the batteries aren't great.
I'd personally choose the Ryobi and build on it if / when I could.

Thanks very much for that mate, you've been really helpful. I'll be picking this one up for sure.

Funnily enough I too am like you and looking for a combi drill and the bosch was my other choice. I might get this and bite the bullet.
Can you get the 10% Wednesday discount on this as well?

It's been a headache, but I've finally ordered the Ryobi. I've looked into the Ryobi further and it even trumped some big names in a popular mechanics test. It was only outdone by a $399 drill (out of the handful of drills tested).
thanks

I found out after I bought my Milwaukee drill, but the higher output batteries also give the drill more torque because of the way the batteries cells deliver power. So bigger batteries can sometimes be better than 2 smaller ones.
Quidco just tracked @10%...

Purchase amount: £84.00
Cashback amount: £8.40
I've not been impressed with these. I'm a head of D&T at a secondary school, bought 2 for the department. Found them to be poor. Worst thing is the chuck which slips far too easily. In the department we have 2 of these, a budget £99 makita and an Aldi Drill. Even the Aldi drill is far better than the Ryobi. Whem I look for a drill to pick up at school, I go Makita, then Aldi, then Ryobi. It annoys me when I have to use a Ryobi one. Would not buy again in a million years.
bought one, will see. thanks op
Heat added, great find and a bargain at £69. Fairly similar package on Amazon over £120 just now only obvious difference being a 45min charger as opposed to this 3hr one and has a tote bag.

At this price (even better if Quidco tracks) it's more or less price of the batteries alone.

I've quite a few of the one+ tools, my current drill CHI-1802 is just starting to show its age, owes me nothing had it for years and used for some pretty intensive DIY along the way
Really good piece of kit for having in the house, have done loads of DIY in the last 2 month with it. Absolutely no complaints, i got it on sale in store for £74 and thought that was a bargain

How did you get 10% with Quidco. Mine only showing as 1%?
I've had this drill for about 2 years now. I find the torque good enough to never need a cord impact drill or anything like that, but I'm an occasional user.
Things like power tools in private hands are used less that 1% of the time, so save as much as you can, and one+ you can share the batteries, but I agree 1.4ah is a bit small. On the bright side it's lighter than the 4ah battery.
I usually use the 4ah and we use the two 1.4ah from the deal for portable vacuum cleaner and portable pump.
I've had loads of drills, and other corded and cordless power tools, from all the big names, buying the ones i needed at the time, which where at the best price. I've got work zone and parkside tools.
I'm currently in the process of changing over to one plus. There are better tools out there, but not at these prices, and the battery compatibly is worth the slightly​/possibly worse performance. For serious DIYers it's not even worth nothing with, get the Ryobi's
