This is a very good price for a drill of this type, especially if you already have other tools of the same battery.
Great drill. Done a lot with it. Demolished a tile bathroom, general drilling outside to put holes through walls etc. Nice that it's cordless I can use it in the garden to split bricks etc
Totally misread the title and thought it said it came with the battery, which would have been amazing
I have one of these. It is very underpowered and It has just been replaced under warranty as it burnt out after less than a couple of hours total use.
Bought. Thanks Op

I know what you mean and although personally, I knew it wouldn't come with battery, can see how anyone not familiar with the ONE+ line of tools would think it would when reading the title.

Might be better to change the word "Battery" to "Cordless"?

Ryobi R18SDS-0 ONE+ Cordless
SDS Drill

I actually had one of these to add to my vast array of Ryobi ONE+ cordless tools that I've been using over the last 12 years and it just wasn't as powerful as I thought it was gonna be.

It'll be OK for the odd job if you don't mind it taking a little longer though than using a more powerful SDS drill from a different brand.

Also, annoyingly the poor design of the drill means it will not stand up when the battery is in place. Never had drill do that before and it got real annoying, real quick!

Ended up selling the Ryobi and bought a Bosch Professional GBH 18V-20 (Bare) from a deal on HUKD @ £92.99, which is normally around £125, but that thing is in a different class and well worth the little extra (when reduced) if you already have BP batteries.

I already had a Bosch Proessional circular saw though, so was OK.

Likewise. Hence why I was surprised to see a battery included at this price

This is one tool I wouldn’t ever go battery powered for, the power just won’t be there. I spent £50 on a Titan one from Screwfix which is absolutely immense
I really don't need this but want it ... I have the Bosch professional which I'm sure is better (but corded). Must resist....

I have the titan SDS and agree that it has plenty of power, but I also went for an Einhell Herocco 18v SDS as I was sick of struggling with the weight of the Titan especially when using it one handed while holding something up with the other, or when up a ladder, the Einhell is the drill I use 98% of the time, light and amazing battery life. Well worth the extra cost imo.
It’s not just the drill, it’s also the bits and battery used. If you expect corded performance from a cordless drill then you’ll likely be disappointed but put a 5Ah battery on this with a good bit (Makita or Bosch) and it will drill into pretty much any form of masonry. The settings used are also very important!
I thought about buying this a while ago but was out off by the poor reviews and bought a corded Bosch instead which has performed well. I think I would have burnt the Ryobi out doing what I have with the Bosch.

Just waiting for the cordless circular saw to come on offer.
