Ryobi 18V Drill Driver Kit with 100 Accessories $179 @ Bunnings

100

Thought I'd share this kit I found. I was looking for a drill for my partners sisters and found this deal for a drill driver, 2x 1.3Ah, charger, 100 accessories (drill bits) and a tool box.

Most Ryobi drills only come with a soft bag case but this one comes with a hard plastic tool box and 100 piece drill bits for a similar price.

I think this is a special promo so will be limited availability. I called 1 store and they were out of stock but another store I visited had about 6 left.

    I bought this for my best mate for his birthday (with another mate chipping in) for I think about the same price last year at this time of year and it's a good kit. The box is pretty good for storing it and all the bits too.

    Having the Ryobi One+ charger with 2 batteries is a pretty big deal too, because you can buy basically any cordless tool in this Ryobi brand as "skin only" without a battery and just use these batteries and charger for significantly less than buying a kit with a battery for every tool. Saves on storage and much more convenient than trying to keep a half dozen different chargers running different batteries and never having one charged when you need it.

    I have their rattle gun aka impact wrench and that is pretty brilliant for doing stuff on cars. I can take my wheels off in a few seconds once I have the car jacked up. Plenty enough torque for car applications.

      That's another reason I got this kit for her, the number of ryobi one+ gear she can get in the future. I was going to get a makita or dewalt $200 kits (drill+batt+charger) but they don't have the range Ryobi has. She'll get more use out of this kit then a semi-pro drill.

        The other major brands (Hitachi, Dewalt, Makita, Milwaukee, etc)also sells skins and use the same batteries. However, you will need to buy the other skins within a certain period of time before they bring out a new battery model which then won't be compatible with old skins.

      I'm thinking of getting an impact wrench for car stuff. Is it the BIW180G impact wrench you have? Thanks

        There's 2 official one+ impact drivers, the weaker of the 2 has the hex driver chuck, the one for doing wheel bolts has a half inch square drive. I believe the former is around 170Nm and the latter is 270.

        The unofficial way is to use the one+ multi tool with an AEG job plus right angle 3/8 drive head. I find this setup is best for working on cars, but its only about 30Nm (which is better for most stuff on cars).

        The only on I don't have is the half drive one, but I want it.

    The 1.3Ah are old stock batteries that need clearing since they introduced the 1.5Ah ones late last year.

    Good deal for two batteries though….

    I was able to use the 1.3Ah batteries on my lawnmower!

    IMHO its better to get the same drill in the soft bag kit with the 1.5 and 4.0Ah batteries for $199. Much better bang for buck because drill bits can be bought cheaply, 4.0Ah batteries cannot. And these newer (1.5/4.0Ah vs 1.3/2.6Ah) ryobi batteries use top quality cells.

    It's a great little drill for everyday jobs. I've used it to drill through wood, concrete (not much), as a screwdriver, and most recently as a brush to clean my shower. (bought it last time it was on sale)

    Went into Prospect (SA) Bunnings today - they had two left and gave me one of them for $140!

      Forgot to add that Prospect Bunnings already had them on special for $149 ($179 crossed off), so I got another $9 off. Only one more left!
