A lot of LJs scoff at Ryobi, but I have several of their cordless tools (drill, impact driver, 5 1/2” circular saw, caulking gun, and recently, airless stapler, and because I found it so handy, the 18 gauge brad nailer. All these tools have served me well. A couple of the lithium batteries (18 v.) are 4 or 5 years old, and still going strong. Got another pair during a recent sale so I can keep 2 or 3 tools going at the same time.

The one that didn’t work out so well was the cordless jig saw. The tool-less blade changer fell apart almost immediately.

I am not very impressed with their AC tools however—routers, drill presses, and bench top table saws. Haven’t tried their miter saw, as I have a Bosch Glide (which I found on CL)
