Hello

I picked up my order from Home Depot and on the bag it says I got a free upgrade. It seems that they were out of the kit and in the bag I found the following:
  • RYOBI 18V ONE+ Cordless 1/2-inch Hammer Drill/Driver with Handle, Model # P214
  • RYOBI 18V ONE+ Lithium-Ion 2.0 Ah Compact Battery and Charger Starter Kit, Model # PSK005
I am getting into the Ryobi system and don't know if I got a good value for this instead of the Posted deal.
I would appreciate any thoughts about value, performance, use case of the free upgrade instead of the posted Deal.
Thank you

They cancelled my order. Trying for the Rigid one. I just want to hang some pictures on concrete walls and this is cheaper than hiring a handyman

You got a more powerful hammer drill (600lbs of torque vs the 400lbs of the one in the "deal") However its brushed not brushless.

Considering the hammer drill is $70 right now for the one they gave you...i'd say its an even trade.

You also got a 2ah battery vs the 1.5ah that came with the kit...not a huge upgrade but its better than nothing.

Seems like they are clearing out the stock with the 1.5Ah batteries. Still a good deal, though, specially if you have 2Ah and 4Ah batteries already.

I have a couple of 4Ah batteries but I am not planning on using them with these two tools.

blueangel2323 wrote: Most of DeWalt's kits come with only 1.3Ah batteries. But I think that's because DeWalt uses the max voltage (20V) instead of the nominal 18V that other companies use, and 1.3Ah at 20V which works out to be the same total capacity as 1.5Ah at 18V?
Nah they are all "max 20V"--all the 18V batteries. Some companies tend to use the "20V" marketing and some stick with saying 18V, Ryobi actually does both. For ONE+ they say it's 18V, but for their "40V" line they say, well, 40V. But really it's 36V (basically double the cells as an 18V battery, put in series). All just marketing. It's about nominal voltage v. peak/float voltage. If you simply measure any of these tool batteries, fully charged and in resting state will be close to 20V.
blueangel2323 wrote: The $149 clearance deal on the Ridgid kit this summer was so amazing though, and makes good deals like this look like not-so-good deals. That worked out to be under $75 per tool, both of which were both way more powerful than these ones, and each with a big 4Ah battery instead of tiny 1.5Ah ones. Heck, the regular price of the two batteries alone is $148, making the tools virtually free.
Indeed. Reminds me I have to sell some of my 4Ah batteries. Have too many of them that are just going to sit around.

I also finally got a hold of a new 3.0 Octane battery :) It wasn't exactly cheap but probably the best price to be found nowadays... Late 2019 build, but them's the breaks when they discontinue this stuff.

They cancelled my store curbside order. Then I ordered online and ship to store. Now it is ready to pick up.

I don't think this is a price error. Ottawa store has more drills and drivers in stock for $79 (was out of stock last week).

are these two comparable?

I use my 5 years old Dewalt 12v max to drill few holes on the stone today, took a long time. Thinking to get one hammer drill.

If these two are on par, I’d prefer Rigid which has lifetime warranty.

Huge difference.. all HP tools I tried are at par with Milwaukee. Professional grade stuff.
Which Milwaukee are you comparing with? I looked at their M18 Fuel spec, it blows away of any of these. How does compare with M12 Fuel?

So the consensus is that i should get the hammer drill first and then get the driver if i want to spend more? Just getting something as a just in case. Doing light diys only. Been borrowing neighbours drill in most cases.

You'd probably want an impact wrench if possible for changing tires. Check out this thread for the Ryobi impact wrench deal: home-depot-ryobi-p261-impact-wrench-65- ... 5-2509148/

Impact driver might work, but it won't be the best tool for the job.

Will the hammer drill take basic screwdriver bits to use for ikea assembly?
