Cheapest it’s been according to three camels.

Seems like a decent bit of kit for the price but I’m not expert so let me know if I need to cancel my order

To be honest it's not great.... Okay for light DIY but no more than that. Now a day's you can get brushless motor cordless drills that are much better for under a £100 just do a quick search on Screwfix website! I personally don't rate DeWalt but Bosch are brilliant and last for years! Hope this helps

Can you recommend any specific ones?
Brushless would be better, but to be honest if you're not a professional I doubt you'll know the difference. It will be fine for light to medium work but may struggle with Accrington bricks and concrete.

It's an okay starter to the Ryobi ONE+ ecosystem, which has semi-decent tools - to almost professional tools for a good price. I know a fair few labourers who have moved to Ryobi because you can pick up cheap equipment that last nearly as long as professional equipment and they aren't that bothered or out of pocket too much when they inevitably get (accidentally) stolen/borrowed by other labourers.

Thanks. I really just need one drill to all sorts of light DIY stuff. Including the occasional concrete work. Not too fussed about ryobi one system. What would be best suited for that sort of work?
I’ve only got a couple ryobi tools, the cordless trim router and the cordless nail gun. My experience with these 2 is brilliant build quality, great run time with the 5ah battery I’ve got and don’t foresee any issues with them. Everything seems robust and I use the router for stuff I really shouldn’t and it’s taken anything I throw at it. Having only tried these 2 tools it’s hard for me to say about the drills but they seem fine to me. It’s hard to distinguish between brands these days, it’s all made in Chinese factories really and one tool isn’t much different to another in the same price range. Ryobi has an extensive tool library mostly good but some duds as they try to do too much. Unless your gonna go out and spend £200+ on a drill then the ryobi is just as good as the next branded drill of that price.

I plan to be replacing some of my current tools with ryobi brushless as I’d rather have one lot of batteries to worry about charging than a bunch of different ones though that’ll have to wait until my current tools give up the ghost which I can’t see happening anytime soon. If you can get brushless ryobi instead of the normal range then definitely go that route but otherwise this is a drill that should see you through a good few years unless you do anything silly that would require a drill press or an sds. Plus go buy a proper battery, swap the 2ah for a 4ah and you’ll notice a big difference in run time and much less power loss.

Also agree dewalt aren’t up to scratch these days, quality has gone out the window. As for Bosch I’ve had good luck with the blue but would avoid green Bosch like the plague as that stuffs rubbish. Blue Bosch costs more but worth it in the quality and how long it’ll last you.
this is fine. i have plenty of ryobi stuff and it's more than fine for the occasional/enthusiastic DIYer. And the one system is quite good, a variety of tools, and the tools themselves are cheap as well. Saying don't get a ryobi get a bosch is like saying don't get a ford get a bmw. Really, a ford is fine for most folk.

Personally, I'd say this Ryobi is fine for light DIY stuff, and you'll also have the option of re-using the battery and charger with a host of other stuff in the future should you need to. If you mean things like hanging pictures and repairing wooden fences and gates by "light DIY" then this, with a decent set of bits, will be fine.

If your "light DIY" stuff involves drilling holes in concrete, Accrington brick and steel plates, then look for another drill :-)

EDIT: the other drill I posted isn't suitable for concrete, Accrington brick and steel plates, and people might think it is. I was simply meaning it's a better drill.

I want one tool to do a bit of both so might look elsewhere. Thanks 🏼

Lol. You sound like you know a lot.

What 18v cordless non-SDS is going to drill into Accringtons or concrete?

Fair comment.

Although I'll admit that I've drilled into Accrington with a corded Bosch once by leaning on the drill with the weight of my body. It didn't do the drill or the bits any good, but it worked.
