Found 8th Dec 2017
I was considering upgrading my Ryobi hammer drill to brushless and Amazon must have read my mind as they have tempted me and I gave in to this one lowest price according to camelcamelcamel. not everyone likes Ryobi but I have been using there tools for ages and they just seem to go on and on.

There is way too much power tool snobbery amongst "tradesmen". I use Ryobi drills frequently and they are very reliable at a good price. I don't think there is another make with such a range of tools for the same batteries. Also brushless tools are generally more expensive than brush motor tools so the comments saying you can get kits for not much more simply aren't true.

Should be £45 without a battery if you ask me.

I don't see any benefit to there marketing strategy "save money on unnecessary batteries and charges" ?

Seen better quality drills with 2 x batteries and charger for less.

I tried one of these but sent it back.
I didn't like the high pitched screeching the motor was making.
Decided to stick with my current Ryobi.
Yea sorry op don’t really see the benefit of this at all unless you happen to be a ‘Ryobi’ man with existing ryobi batteries’ you can get better elsewhere for not much more outlay with 2 batteries.

Good pricer!

I've bought 5 or 6 Ryobi ONE+ toosl this week thanks to Amazon pricing, all arrived today and so far I'm extremely impressed with the quality. Better than my (several year old) outgoing makita stuff!

I did.
I quite liked the more compact size although it wasn't a great deal smaller but nicer to hold.
Interested to hear what you think when you get yours.

Will report back
Thanks for the heads up, very tempted. I already have several one+ tools & batteries so not such a outlay.
I have had one of these for quite a while, use it regularly. Good control and decent hammer mode, feels as good as the dewalt brushless I use at work but a bit better balance. Wish it had a belt clip though, useful for ladders

Of course you have, not!! Did you miss the word Brushless? Please feel free to post a link to any previous deal whatsoever that has a brushless combi with 2 Batteries and a charger for less than this. Again, note the Brushless part.
I am a ryobi fan. Two drills, sander, light, hedge trimmer etc and understands fully the concept of brushless motors but I have used both of my ryobi drills for trade and DIY use for 6 years on they are still going. Personally I don't feel the need to pay the extra for a brush less alternative just yet and if the brushes wore out on one of mine then I would simply replace them. In fact the only thing I have ever replaced brushes on was a washing machine motor and an alternator on an old motor bike.

I think the advantage of brushless motors are that they are more efficient and lighter so are more powerful yet lighter then the brushed motor.I have to say that like you my brushed ryobi drill's work perfectly well although the hammer function is getting a bit week (that's my excuse to justify the purchase)i too have only had to replace brushes on a dremmel and an angle grinder.
Brushless isn't exactly new technology. I sent to remember doing an experiment 40 years ago at school making a motor spin by using magnets yet today we still pay a premium. When the industry moves totally into brushless no doubt we will feel the benefit. On the subject of hammer I don't think this drill was designed to drill anything other than masonry and even that can be a bit hard especially if it's been mixed with sharp sand. I try not to over work mine on hammer and get my see drill out. Much better suited for the process.
Please keep buying this Tosh, here's there latest brushes you may want to add to your pretty wall collection.

Given the drill a very quick test on hammer mode as that was my main reason for upgrade and I would say it performs about 90% better then my old one e.g. it drills a hole nearly twice as fast in dense concrete block , it spins and so impacts a lot faster I have yet to try it on anything else.There is a high pitched noise when drilling slowly but I did not find it over loud but my hearing top end may well be down on yours (Down the front at donington parks monsters of rock head banging to metallica probably not helped) so far impressed enough to be keeping it.
The Ryobi R18PDBL Brushless drill offers all the benefits of Brushless technology to the cordless Powertool market
Already posted. Plus it's been much cheaper in the past. Cold
Without battery?
