Is this cordless power tool nirvana?

Posted in cordless, DIY, power tools, Ryobi by Tony C on January 29, 2008

Anyone who does even a spot of DIY will know there is no job that isn’t more interesting and more fun with a power tool to help you out, hey it might even make it quicker.  This is doubly true of cordless power tools which go ahead and add flexibility to the mix…the problem is though that you end up lots of different batteries and chargers.  Wouldn’t it be useful if there was a range of cordless tools that used a common battery and charger?  Well it seems Ryobi have released just a system called One Plus, I already have one of their mitre saws which has made cutting skirting simple and quick. so I know the quality will be excellent at the price.  If the batteries are strong enough to give you a fair chunk of use these could be worth a closer look.

Power on!

    I’ve got a big old set of 18v DeWalt gear – and now have a few Ryobi One items (for more basic things DeWalt dont do).

    Chalk and cheese tho – the DeWalt gear is much more meaty. I did get the Ryobi gear for the 18v One Garden gear (and got myself an 18v caulking gun).

    So there you have it – Ryobi’s gear is for the ladies 🙂

    Ha! Even top of the line cordless cant hold a candle, performance wise, to a good corded tool. Not that I’m anti cordless. It has its place. I did a head to head comparison between a cordless reciprocating saw and a corded one. Check it out in my podcast (It gets published at 5PM ET today 1/31/2008).
