Deal Alert: Ryobi Days Are Back!

Ryobi P1812 Hammer Drill Kit Clint Being Awesome

They say all good things must come to an end, but some of those good things come back again. We’re talking about Ryobi Days when a whole bunch of Ryobi tools become even better deals than usual.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – although Ryobi has often straddled the line between DIYer and Pro grade tools, the company has introduced some impressive, value-rich products over the last few years that are right at home on the jobsite. As such, it’s a great idea for DIYer and Pro alike to peruse the deals and see what their toolboxes need.

Ryobi Days run until June 21st. Be sure to check out your local Home Depot or www.homedepot.com to take advantage of these offers!

Ryobi Days: The Highlights

Buy an 18V One+ Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver Kit and get one select power tool or battery free up to $79

Ryobi’s 18V system is called One+ and the platform boasts over 70 tools. By purchasing the Drill/Driver Kit (which includes the tool, two 18V batteries, a charger, and soft case) you can have your pick of one among several other One+ tools.

18V One+ 4-piece Super Combo and 6-piece Ultimate Combo Kit

This deal is hard to resist – and we already have all this stuff. The perfect gift for a new homeowner or an apprentice tradesman who needs a solid suite of tools without the premium price, these kits are a great way to jump right into the One+ platform.

18V One+ Score Speaker Set

What’s a job without tunes? Not a lot of fun, unless you’re into that silent stuff. Connect up to five of these wireless speakers via Bluetooth. They’ve got surprisingly good sound and ridiculously long range – up to 150 feet!

18V One+ Airstrike 18GA Brad Nailer (P320) and 16GA Straight Finish Nailer (P325)

For trim work or general purpose nailing, hit the nail on the head with Airstrike nailers. They’re a great way to have common gauge nailers on hand without having to drag out a hose and compressor for punch list work.

Whole Stud Detector

We liked this one when we reviewed it – and it even has the added bonus of AC detection. You’re going to need to find a stud in drywall sooner or later, you might as well make it easy on yourself and see the whole width!

Yes, and at these prices, if a tool dies it is no bid deal. Two batteries alone would cost you $75. If you get the four tool combo, you’re looking at an average of $42 without batteries. If you subtract the battery cost, then it’s $11 per tool. WOW!

P.G. K

Even though I already have a drill with an impact attachment and an oscillating tool, I’m very tempted to get the One+ with 6 tool combo for $199. I’m not a professional in need of tools but I don’t have a lot in terms of power tools and would like a good basic kit as a soon to be first home owner. Something every guy should have. Never really looked at the Ryobi line before but have always heard it’s a solid choice. Seems like a good deal and time to pick up something like this. Can’t imagine there’s better… Read more »
