[Home Depot] Home Depot: Ryobi 18V Lithium Compact Drill Kit model P815- $71.99 (Was $179.00)

Ryobi may not be the best brand out there but for $71.99 I think you can’t go wrong. The kit comes with charger and 2 compact Lithium-Ion batteries (1.5Ah). For comparison one battery alone is $79.99 and a set of 2 is $129.99.

This kit is available in store only (I got mine at Argentia Store in Mississauga) and it’s not advertised in the weekly flyer. Interestingly $89.99 seems to be the regular price on HD website but in the store it was clearly marked down from $179.00.

Edit: Take another 20% off during HD cordless power tools sale (until Oct 19) and you can have it for $71.99. $89.99 after that.

Thanks OP. Are you sure it has two batteries? The online picture shows one battery only?

Picked one up at St henri. Last one one the shelf. This beat the $50 Trimmer deal in August. I bought two then (for the batteries) and will be returning the other, unopened. Thanks OP

Thanks OP! Picked up the last one at South Edmonton Common, tucked away at the back of the rack, difficult to see. Asked the sales associate to do a price check and he confirmed the price without scanning. He said was suprised I found one as he sold the demo in the morning and thought it was sold out.

I have the original A+ drill (NiCad) from about 5 years ago that I like very much. I added the $40 Ryobi drill/saw (NiCad) kit in August, as the older batteries are getting weak. The newly spec'ed drills are slower and all in all not as good. I just looked at the spec of this Lithium set and it is similar to my older set, on top of that it is smaller, lighter and comes with a 1/2 in chuck instead of 3/8 in. I think I am going to like this. I can probably retire all my Ryobi A+ NiCad batteries now.

Thanks for the info.

I was thinking of using these batteries for my BAJA 5b e-conversion..

But since the Mah rating of the batteries are low, not going to happen.

Is a Ryobi drill better than that of Mastercraft found here. Anyone have any experience, looking to buy a unit for work, it will be expensed. So I'm looking for a decent unit/price.

EVERYONE should buy this...bar none...

This thing is a workhorse. I have had mine for about 2 years now and I have put it through the ringer. Built a fence, a deck, a shed, framed and finished a basement, dropped it from 20 feet on to rocks and it is still working just like the first day.

Pick up a DeWalt Impact Driver ready bit set and this thing will driving screws, lag bolts, bolts, etc forever.

A++++ from a very very satisfied user

Never used the mastercraft but this Ryobi is just plain amazing...and super light. + the Ryobi has a magnetic holder to hold your screws which is crazy handy...I use it all the time to hold up to 10 decking screws.

I picked mine up today from the Clareview Home Depot. There is 1 left.


I went to grab it, store tag says $179.99. I ask the sales associate to check pricing as online states $89.99. He shows me the online ad and says no its $179.99 becuz the picture only shows 1 battery online and this package has 2. I tell him the SKU# are the same and he says oh no its different. If you want it, I can take one battery out and sell it to you for $89.99. I give him the WTF look and say okay and walk back to the drill section.

I pull up this thread and he comes back saying yeah its $89.99. I ask to speak to manager, show him this thread and show him the picture with the store printed tag that says $89.99. Hes all let me check this for you. He tells the sales guy I was dealing with to scan it and surprise surprise, the till says $89.99. Apologies and the manager scolding the sales guy later I walk out with one.
