Nope, it'll only do 160 ft/lbs.

I bought one this afternoon at Beacon. When I went, stock said 7 (and that looked about right). Now showing 3.
The one staff that I spoke to had no idea about the promo, and it wasn't posted anywhere.
He was kind of a tool himself. Seemed annoyed to be there, and had zero customer service skills.
I ended up going to the customer service desk, and the lady there had no problem finding the offer details.
Crazy idea....maybe put up a sign or even card, and accelerate sales for the store. :( At the least, have staff that are informed.

I couldn't find them and ended up talking with the rep who said he had spent an hour early today looking for them, also with no luck. He said he would get the manager to zero out the stock tracker and I should head down to Chinook where they have 13. At Chinook the sales guy said the 13 were either on a truck on the way to the store or in receiving waiting to be unpacked. I'll have to try again on the weekend.

The new compact line of brushless tools will be very limited at intro. Only 6 tools announced so far and as the name implies they're focused on reduced size and weight and less so cutting a barn in half in 7 seconds: https://www.ryobitools.com/hp

Stick with Milwaukee if you need absurd RPMs, ft-lbs, etc.

Pics of the new compact fuel gauge batteries in that link.

Bought the half inch hammer drill/driver for 98.00. Brought the "free kit" with me to the teller with drywall 2x4's etc... Said two of these 5 of these, the drill and this one is free. "Hahahaha" she says. I said no seriously it's free. Rang it through and it came up free. "Well I'll be. That's a hella deal homie". "Yup, ngl it just moved a little" Took her a sec but she got it just in time to say "TMI boomer, thanks for shopping at HD".

TL;DR
Deals are honored at the tills in Edmonton (West end store anyway). Will try the return tomorrow. Regards Luke

Edit: I may be in love lol

St Constant still has the brad nailer and deflator/inflator listed at the lower prices.

I managed to return my jigsaw with the manager overridden price of $87.97 from the day one purchase when the promo was not working in the system.

Went in and bought another jigsaw with battery. This time the promo worked automatically at the cash. Went back to return the battery for a $50 credit.

Worked out to being a battery (0.01) and jigsaw (47.98) for less than 50$.

Honestly I don't know. Maybe focus on what you really need now. Or buy now and only open the tools you need because you have 90 days to return.
The new line will be out only in autumn.
Does Canada will receive the new line right away with sufficient stocks or much later?
At what prices?
Will there be some deals at the launch, black friday, hollidays, next summer?
Brushes can be changed if they even wear out.
If this was a bad deal, belive me, RFD comunity will have mention it...

So you kept battery from kit #1, and the tool from kit #2?

I just picked up the brad nailer for $149 from Etobicoke South. Just showed the picture with the old price on the shelf.

There are no signs about this battery promo but it rang up fine. I picked up the brad nailer and sander.

Anyone have experience with the Ryobi impact wrench? I'm kinda on the fence about the 300 ft lb torque, it doesn't feel like it's enough to take off stubborn bolts on a car. The ridgid impact wrench and brushless models offers a much higher torque ~650, but I don't have any of those batteries and cost a lot more.

Joymax wrote: I sometimes do maintenance on my car, not just wheel nuts I need to take off. I think I'll need something a little higher to be safe. I've came across really stubborn bolts a few times and breaker bars didn't help. I had to take it to a shop and they took it off with ease using air impact wrench.

I'm wondering if the rumor Ryobi brushless models coming soon will have higher torque specs. At this price after returning the battery, it's quite tempting.
It depends which impact you're talking about. The P235a, which came with my combo isn't recommended according to the HD Q&A

What adapter would I purchase to connect a 1/2-inch drive socket to remove lug nuts off my car tire1

Hi Dread, Great question and thanks for reaching out! The RYOBI Cordless 1/4-inch Impact Driver kit is great for doing jobs around the house, drilling into concrete, or hard wood. But unfortunately it is not recommended for automotive use to remove lug nut on vehicles. It would work a few times but would start to burn out fairly quick.

RYOBI sells a ONE+ 1/2-inch Cordless 3-Speed Impact Wrench (Model # P261|Store SKU # 1000672279). This product is 100% designed for use on vehicles and most importantly lug nuts as most cars require 100/fts of torque on each lug nut for safety regulations. We hope this information helps! Thanks RYOBI Canada.

Yes. Battery had a max return value of 0.01, but the tool had a max return value of $87.97.
I wasn't sure if the return would work and decided to try and see.
