Most of the brushless non-Fuel M18 tools are basically within spitting distance of the Fuel versions though, so those are fine. However I think the non-Fuel brushless line is fairly small and I don't think they are adding anything to it these days.
True about brushed but those can be found cheap particularly used since they're low performance and high durability.

Fuel is night and day different than the regular brushless. Completely different motors that lead the industry, many have really good anti vibe as well which is what makes them so smooth.

Looking at getting this as I'll be getting some uses out of it. Any idea if this one will eventually be discounted?

My inflator/deflator that I bought last week is useless without a battery and charger Face With Tears Of Joy so looking at getting the above
For that particular blower (tool only), you can get it right now for $117 RV I think it was? Buy the mower, get the blower "free", return the mower.

For batteries and charger I'd say this is your best bet...

Buy the 2x 4.0 HP:
https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... ?rrec=true

I think that's $10 more than it was in the last sale (which was cheaper than these have been even in US) but them's the breaks unfortunately. Then pickup a cheap P118 or P118B/PCG002 off kijiji--I'd imagine you can get one for like $20 off there, even a new one. If you can find a P117 for $35 or less, go with that (it's the "fast" Ryobi charger). Stick with genuine--I'd recommend against buying aftermarket China-brand/off-brand chargers.

You might think $117 + $140 + $20 is more than $230 (for the HP blower kit), at $277 but it's about $50 more and still much better and here's why...

With that blower kit in Canada you are getting a crappy non-HP PBP005 4.0 battery, which is basically the most cheaply made 4.0 Ah Li-Ion battery Ryobi has produced to date. It has cheap EVE cells inside and is really just not that great. The PBP004s you get in the 2pk though are HP batteries and not only will they perform better in the HP blower, but you'll have a second one as well which is real useful for a blower which will burn through a 4.0 battery in no time. (Note that these also have EVE cells unfortunately but they will be better spec'd ones than in the el-cheapo PBP005.)

I'm looking to stain my deck, so need a pressure washer and I think an orbital sander.

I have Ryobi tools and batteries so figure I can just get the sander and washer from Ryobi.

Anyone have good or bad things to say about either tool? And which pressure washer would you recommend? I could also use it to wash the car and driveway.

Thanks in advance!

If you're talking about one of the portable "EZClean" battery powered pressure washers, those aren't gonna cut it for the deck, I would say not even the 40V one would be good. The big 40V ones that take two batteries might do the job but those are $700 washers lol. Just get a gas washer for like half that or less, a much better idea.

For sanding down a deck, wouldn't you need a belt sander? So maybe something like this would fit the bill?

The corded Ryobi is like half the money though, and you have to ask yourself whether you really need a cordless one. Plus you better have a bunch of batteries if you're going cordless.

If you have a smaller deck I guess an orbital is not a bad idea, actually you might need both anyway since a belt sander wouldn't get in the tighter areas well.

This is the older one:

This is the newer one:
https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... 1001692010

New one is $20 more but claims 40% less vibration.

The cheap "corner cat" could also be useful for getting, well, corners:

wife and i bought a gas pressure washer exclusively to clean our uncovered wooden deck every spring. we live in a mature neighbourhood with big trees. this job used to very difficult with an electric pressure washer. gas was a game changer for us.
Let's get rich together on RFD. Stay positive, stay frugal. 😃

Thanks. I had watched some videos and it seemed like a PSI of 700-1400 (depending on the softness of the wood) would be enough to wash a deck prior to staining, so I thought any pressure washer with more than 1400 PSI would be good enough. Was hoping to avoid the gas-powered route.

Yeah there's PSI and then there's also GPM and then there's how real the ratings are. I think on most electrics the numbers are inflated, probably even more so on the cordless electrics. The EZClean portable models are good for cleaning cars and maybe other small light-cleaning jobs, but that will be about it. I wouldn't even trust a [plug-in] electric model to be all that great at cleaning a deck TBH--as @duttydeals mentioned when he changed from electric to gas it was a huge difference.

If you only need to clean the deck to re-paint/stain it you might consider seeing if you can rent a gas one or just have someone come in just to do that. Could also try a neighbour or something, if one has one and will let you borrow.

There's this [plug-in] electric one that is basically built like a gas one, and probably offers much better performance; but, it also costs just about as much as gas and still has half the GPM of a typical gas unit:

I just used the Ryobi random orbital sander to sand my deck yesterday. Ran it for upwards of an hour at a time - no issues at all.


Word of advice. You can do a lot with one sanding pad, but after about 10 feet they wear down. Save yourself the hassle and just buy a big box and replace them often otherwise you'll double the time taken using worn pads. I was using them for 2 boards at a time here, I should have switched every board - would have saved a lot of time.

Hey all! I’ve been looking through the Ryobi Days deals and came across this lawn mower combo: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... 1001690167

I know it’s not the 40V, but it’s brushless and I have a very small lawn. I’m particularly interested because it comes with what looks like a good blower and trimmer.

Would this be considered a good deal?

I was considering 18V brushless blower and many complains about weak power and battery consumption.

Alright, thanks for the input all. I'll research into gas pressure washers. I don't mind buying since I wanted to use it to clean the garage, driveway, and cars eventually. If I can't avoid gas then I guess that's it. And maybe the belt sander+"corner cat" combo will work for sanding.

A corded one will work OK for a very small lawn.

Are those combo kits listed the sale price or are they going to go "live" with lower prices later on?

I'm assuming the prices will go "live" soon (before the end of this month)? Is it possible to buy now and get a price difference refund or better to just wait for prices to go live?

If you need something buy now and either get a price adjustment or just buy another and return with the original receipt.

I've been told this goes live in 10 days (May 23). You can get it price adjusted through the online chat for sure.
