I always look at Ryobi as mail-order or shopping- channel tat but they seem to get some good reviews. Didn’t they do the ONE’ battery thing where the same battery would fit everything from your lawnmower to your toothbrush? Seems a reasonable price if you already have kit and batteries but if not then how much are the batteries and charger?

Yes the battery & charger are expensive if bought separately so best to pick up a starter kit as you get both with it then you can add other tools as you wish. I’ve gone all in with the one+ kit and defo not tat, I honestly can’t fault it. Just built a deck using the drill, driver & circular saw and all handled the job impressively. Treated the missus to the lawnmower last month as well & she seems to like it.
Also £45 on tooled-up + £4 delivery

Does anyone know of a real good reason to own a percussion drill if you already have the hammer drill driver?
I've recently got into the Ryobi ecosystem and yea batteries are expensive but there are normally deals on starter kits. I like the fact I can power my soldering iron and drill from the same battery and the fact there are so many tools to choose from. I've got friends who are carpenters and they use the Ryobi stuff day in day out without any problems.
I picked up an aftermarket 5.0Ah battery for not much money from eBay and it's been superb in my Ryobi tools
Ryobi is class
I have a strimmer and come with a free 5ah battery and it is brilliant, I have a large garden and the petrol gets heavy and pain mixing petrol and getting it started. Thought I would try this and it is good. And to give you a idea of size I have a ride on mower abut 2/3 of acre.

I will be updating my tools as they wear out or need another. Thinking of changing all my tools to battery.

Another ryobi fan here, got a few tools and they've all been great. The drill in particular has taken a lot of abuse, still absolutely fine. I picked up a bargain non-genuine 5.0ah battery from amazon and that's been fine. Defo not tat. My had had an (old) makita drill, he came over and helped me with some DIY and he was amazed with the drill, he used that over his makita on the job we were doing.

No, because they are the same thing.

There's some kind of difference, at least on paper, but i don't know the practical differences
Although I don't own this particular tool. I've got a few others by Ryobi and rate them all. Most reviews are just nitpicking Vs 'bigger' brands. Ryobi naked tools are sometimes.1/4 of an equivalent yellow and black tool price. I'd take a bit of nitpicking to save over £100.

Basicslly, there's percussion where the chuck is moved mechanically by the cogs, and pneumatic (sds) where the chuck is moved by a piston. That's it.
The starter kit for this drill is £59.99 on Amazon for a limited time only. amazon.co.uk/Ryo…JF/
Any good with bricks?

My mate was the same, said the ryobi drill driver was much better than his makita one.
