I use a cordless drill in many projects, both at work and at home. Having an undependable drill is frustrating, unprofessional, and embarrassing. Having said prayers over several expensive drills, Including Dewalt and Firestorm models, I was looking for a dependable one. I found it. The 18 volt Ryobi gives me what I need. It is powerful. The battery pack is excellent. A fully charged battery can last over a day in my job. Nothing is worse than having to change batteries in the middle of a job. It is time consuming and momemtum breaking. The Ryobi comes with a charger and two batteries, so there is always a backup. A full charge takes about 20 minutes in the charger, and the signal when the battery is charged keeps you from leaving it on the charger too long. The Ryobi has performed extremely well in normal functions, and is more than adequate in larger, more difficult projects. Unlike other cordless drills, the Ryobi is powerful and versatile enough to perform in situations where an electric drill is normally needed. I still have an electric drill, but I seldom use it. The Ryobi comes with two double ended screw bits, flathead and Phillips. Also included are a charger and two batteries. The kit I bought also has a circular saw and a sander. Both are high quality, and surprisingly effective for their compact size. All fits in the carrying case, which is included. The case is big enough that it can store whatever bits and accessories you ned for the job. Other drills I have used come with a carrying case that is big enough for the tool and batteries only. The Ryobi is dependable and versatile. I enjoy the envy on the faces of my Dewalt buddies. Several have changed to Ryobi after seeing mine in action. And the price is great for the value. The entire 18 volt Ryobi kit and case cost about half of what the competition, if you can call it that, costs Anyone who needs a cordless drill for work or home use needs to try a Ryobi. The Ryobi 18 volt cordless is the "King of the Mountain" in the cordless drill world.
