Tell Ryobi made a cordless vacuum stick with power brush head to compete with my house wife brands like Dyson, Hoover, Dirt Devil and Bissell.. With so many 18V One+ batteries available from Ryobi it’s going kick ass to the house wife cleaning tools market. . That should open up a whole new market for both ladies and gentlemen under one brand and one shop.

Dz transports Inc says:

Really good content I liked it

Reza Mirzazadeh says:

Thanks. A stupid question. I just bought a drill/driver one and can’t unlock the Chuck jaws! They are all the way down the Chuck and I don’t know how to bring them out!!

Mike Alsopp says:

Just purchased mine in a kit with two 5.0AH batteries (I’m in the UK)

Arturo Sosa says:

I like your Videos Javier

Crickets Creations says:

I’m a ryobi fan and this is upsetting, I have the older hammer drill driver and yes it’s overload protection sucks.

TurboGuard says:

I just bought this as my first hammer drill and I love it. I dare you to find a better cordless drill at this price point.

Rob D says:

Thanks for the review, Javier. I was considering this drill, but the much too sensitive overload protection is a deal breaker. What good is the 750 in-lbs of torque if Ryobi isn’t confident the drill can handle it during real world use?

Jeff Bourke says:

2:50 to 3:28, I love how complicated you made having one battery sound…

Azteca Equis says:

9:39 lol… great reviews buddy.

Joe McIntyre says:

Great information young man. It’s interesting that Milwaukee has similar issues with the overload protection function on I believe it’s latest drills. I say this as a big Milwaukee fan. The great thing about coming over to your channel is you don’t seem to let any preferences you may have cloud your judgement on the tool you are reviewing. I am going to contact Milwaukee here in the UK to find out more about this cut-out protection issue. As you say it’s a balance between getting the most out of the tool versus prolonging the tool life. My buddy got a Ryobi hammer drill driver a few years ago and he has worked the you know what out of it and amazingly it still chooches no problem. However, when he uses my Milwaukee as a hammer drill he says there is a huge difference in performance in Milwaukee’s favour. Thanks for sharing. Kindest regards. Joe.

Phillip Amer says:

tool craze great review It would be great to see this ryobi compared to the kobalt 24v brushless drill. I have one and really like it.

Peter Zhang says:

I just tried mine and didn’t get the overload protection issue. I used 1-3/8 forstner bit and speed 2 setting, it drilled through the 2×4 like butter. I just bought it this week, not sure if Ryobi has fixed the issue, or it was my drill bit not big enough to trigger the overload protection.

Jim Pann says:

Going to take mine back to hd. Going to switch to Kobalt. Thanks for the honest review, great work.

Just for Fun says:

it’s just for small jobs and home use nothing like the pro brands.

mak450 says:

Wow, thanks for the review. Guess I’ll stick with my old p1812 for now

ichiban2point0 says:

I’m glad I didn’t buy this one. I already have a corded hammer drill, I’ll just stick to that.

tkarlmann says:

Quick tip: You have the tool clip and the handle on the same side of the tool! No one would carry it that way. Great review.

Daniel Gomez says:

The brushed drill is on sale for $99 dollars at the Home Depot is it a good idea to I invest $50 dollars more for the brushless please respond haven’t open the p1812 yet thanks great review and all your ryobi reviews keep them going

guillermo aguilar says:


Certainties says:

Weird, I think that that mine runner hotter than my old brushed one. I really like it though. But the over load protection is annoying lol. I can actually make it trip by holding the chuck and I’m even that strong…

Alex Gorbatchev says:

Thank you for your review, this is really helpful!

Mario Alvarez says:

i bought the brushless string trimmer and it cuts off alot, think its because of the overload protection aswell? i have a video clip of what im talking about if u want me to send it

Martin Poole says:

Hi, Javier great review, here in the UK we have this version I’m not sure if it’s fundamentally the same what are your thoughts? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ryobi-R18PDBL-0-Brushless-Combi-Drill/dp/B014089DHS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491294455&sr=8-1&keywords=ryobi+brushless

ReaganPatriot says:

Great review as always….going with Dewalt..cant beat the 3 year warranty

vet68 says:

I have one…works great and worth the $$$…..

jeffscomp says:

It could be their crappy battery circuitry making it shut off.

Keven Stroman says:

Thanks for this review. I’ll be waiting for the next version before I buy one.

Daniel Gomez says:

I don’t know if I should get this or keep the brushed model I didn’t like the overload protection on the brushless model I paid 100 for the brushed kit but have a 2 year extended warranty so I’m covered for 5 years 3 from ryobi and 2 from the store great review saludos

Roof Repair Techs says:

I really like this drill and all the features

Mark Kilroy says:

excellent video Javier, great review I was thinking about getting one of these for small jobs at home

nateross14 says:

Just a thought, are you sure that the overload protection premature activation is not just due to a defective unit? Did you test multiple samples and find that they all did it?

Love2boat92 says:

Looks like a nice lean mean green drillin machine!!! Lol. The overload protection would be annoying but is can be nice to have sometimes. I like that mode selection switch too.

Tomás Gerardo Guadarrama Sánchez says:

Looks strong, it’s a pity the protección does not let it use all his power. Great video

Repairman Jared says:

Thanks for the fantastic review, I was about to order one of these to get the free brushless circular saw with it but decided against it because of the protection issues mentioned.
