Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RyobiThe Ryobi Tools brand in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand is owned by Techtronic Industries of Hong Kong, an original equipment manufacturer for brands such as Craftsman, Milwaukee, AEG (AEG Powertools, licensed from Electrolux), Ryobi, Homelite, Hoover US, Dirt Devil, and Vax. Around 1988, Ryobi purchased the assets of the former Diehl Motor Company (a one-time division of Singer Corporation), which was the supplier of Sears Craftsman hand-held power tools. After the purchase, Ryobi continued to supply Sears with power tools. These tools typically had a model number beginning with "315" or "973".
In the United States and Canada, Ryobi power tools are sold primarily through Home Depot and the Internet. In Australia and New Zealand the line is sold exclusively by Bunnings Warehouse. In the UK the power tools are sold at hardware stores.

This kit is great price. The extra battery is nice as well. Even at 1.5Ah these batteries last longer then their competitors. I've used every brand, and the only one that holds a candle anywhere close to Ridgid is Milwaukee.quatro4u2 wrote: ↑ I don't think homedepot owns any of them.
From what I gather
Ridgid (by Emerson) - (exclusive contract from TTI for Home Depot)
TTI is the parent company of Ryobi and One World Technologies (OWT).
that being said, ridgid tools do seem more robust.
The reality is that the best thing about them in these types of kits is the fact that, when registered, you get lifetime battery replacement. (which I've already used 2).

Yup, you will. My batteries were all replaced with the newer versions.Phantasm wrote: ↑ If I didn't already have an old Ridgid impact that still works great I'd be all over this. Still kinda tempting but I don't really need it.
Hoping when my (now 10 year old) impact dies in the future I can get it replaced under the lifetime warranty with a newer / more powerful one like this

Two smaller batteries are more useful than one large one, especially if you have multiple tools. Also a 4 amp is pretty heavy.codier wrote: ↑ For people want bigger battery there is one slightly more $129 but with 4Ah Battery.
I don't know if 2 x 1.5Ah plus $31 is worth a 4Ah battery.

I also have their impact wrench and used maximum impact socket (black one) and it works well. Also bought a Dewalt 1/2 to 1/4 socket adapter below so that I can use normal bit for daily use. Works very well.

which impact socket kit did you get? I'm trying to slim down on useless tools and want to know which sockets you've found are necessary. I'm most interested in swivel adapter for those tight spotsanshiren wrote: ↑ I also have their impact wrench and used maximum impact socket (black one) and it works well.

By the way, I paid $150 plus for the impact wrench with a battery. I feel OP’s deal is pretty good. Tempted but that socket adapter works very well so no need for me to get another impact driver.
