Ryobi 18V ONE+ Brushless Impact Wrench Kit $249 (Previously $299) @ Bunnings

50

Have been looking at some Ryobi One+ tools and found via PriceHipster that this had been reduced recently from $299 to $249.
Comes with a 4ah battery, charger and carry bag.

Another decent deal, the One+ Hedger and Shearer $99, down from $129

    I have Makita drills, how are these in comparison?(looking for an offer for the 15ga Ryobi airstrike finish nailer but they never seem to come on offer!)

    I have both Makita and DeWalt ecosystems but should really stick with just one brand for convenience/battery swappability!

    •  

      My main power tools are Makita but i bought the last model of this Ryobi (370nm torque from memory) as for the power/price there was nothing close on the market. Love my Makita's and love my Ryobi impact wrench.

      There's a few comparison video's on Youtube where the Ryobi goes up against some serious heavy hitters and holds it's own. Punches well above it's weight. But again that's the old model and for only 270nm (if the comment below is correct) on this one i would pass.

      They are surprisingly good, but I doubt they would last as long. Altho some of the makita stuff is pretty poor quality these days as well. At least with Bosche you know theres a DIY range and a Pro range, but with makita its a lucky dip.

      •  

        I don't have Bosch blue myself but from the responses ive read on various posts here it aint what it used to be.

        Just like Bosch green vs blue there are grades of makita stuff too. Typically whats sold in Bunnings is your entry level grade.

        From my experience there is no magic brand. Just buy whats going to suit your needs and budget and accept that something one day will fail. If not then great but the next guy with the same gear might have the opposite result.

          But with Bosch theres a clear way to know which one is tailored for pros and which is home users. With Makita they are all the same colour. How do you know which is which?

    Why does Ryobi stuff always look like a Tyco Triple Wheels?

      They are both toys and share the same target market.

    Just be aware that this brushless one+ wrench has very low torque compared to other 1/2 drive models. 270Nm iirc. Vs 370Nm for the older brushed one+ model. And 470Nm for the AEG brushless (same factory as Ryobi).

      Pardon my ignorance, but what does that mean in layman’s terms? How will that affect its usage? What would the limitations be? Thanks in advance.

        The higher the number the higher torque it can put out so basically it is weaker than other 1/2 impact wrench. 270Nm is quite weak imo as their brusless impact driver also has 270Nm at high setting.

        •  

          so do you mean higher torque has more force and consequently should take less time to do the same job compare to lower torque rated tool?

            @tgame: More that one with higher torque can tighten things up more, and loosen nuts which are done up really tight. eg. Finger tight would be about 2Nm.

            •  

              @chriso1: Which is a shame, because the newer one at $169 (sans battery and charger though….) does 360nm!

            @tgame: The main reason you break out one of these bad boys is if you are working on undoing big tight bolts that are exposed to corrosion etc. Like on suspension joints or wheel lugs or other big stuff under a vehicle. The more torque, the better in those cases.

            270Nm is basically toy level, and like pointed out above, is the torque level you can get out of some hex drive impact driver drills.

            @tgame: In short, it can screw something in tighter.

      Did the older one have the screwdriver adaptor and a speed selector?

      •  

        I have the old model and it has 3 speed selector. Much needed.

        Don't know what you mean by screwdriver adapter. That's what an impact driver is for.

        Yes the older one (model R18IW) has a screwdriver adaptor and 3 speed selector (186/245/360nm)

    I was thinking of buying an impact driver/rattle gun. Ultimately I want one as a screw driver, but also want one to work on the car occasionally (big bolts and nuts, 1/2inch sockets, ect). Would it be better to get the screwdriver and put a 1/2 inch adapter on it, or get a Impact Wrench and put a screw driver attachment on it? Or is this not practical and I should just get one of each?

      Get one of each. They are completely different applications.
      Get a food quakity (ie not Ryobi) cordless drill driver, and a corded 240V rattle gun since you will only use it occasionally.

      The best solution is air powered rattle gun, as they are powerful and extremely cheap for a generic brand.

      I would try a hex impact driver first, to see if it will do what you want. The 1/2" one here is supposed to be for heavy duty bolts. THe hex drivers can put out almost the same torque as this one. So just make sure you use good quality impact rated hex adaptors and sockets and see if it does what you want. If it cant then look at getting a 1/2 drive.

      And a 1/2 drive will be too unwieldy for screws/driver applications. You will rip screw heads clean off.

      I'd advise against using a 1/2 inch adaptor on an impact driver, if you're using it on a car you want decent torque but more importantly something that can handle the torque - going from a screwdriver sized shank to a 1/2" is going to be a weak point. I've broken many a 1/4" to 3/8" socket adaptors by applying too much pressure by hand, can see them shearing in seconds when used with an impact driver.
      I'd either buy both, or buy the impact wrench with an adaptor to use driver bits (the older model comes with this) and only use it on speed 1 and go light on the trigger to avoid stripping screws.

      No, the impact driver here has much less torque. Torque is a rating of how hard it can screw something.

      In quality…. yes, Deal is better.

      In application… perhaps. The DeWalt kit you linked is a completely different tool to the Ryobi in the OP.
      An impact wrench like that Ryobi is only designed to use 1/2" drive sockets and loosen/tighten large bolts.
      The unit in the DeWalt kit is designed for screwdriving, using a 1/4" hex driver bits.
