New Ryobi 18V One+ Tools for Spring 2015

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

TTI has announced the Spring 2015 additions to the Ryobi 18V One+ family. This is just a brief overview of what to expect, pricing, and availability. We’re looking at a new orbital buffer, 6-1/2″ circular saw, rotary cutter, hybrid work light, compact Bluetooth radio, hammer drill, impact wrench, Airstrike nailer, and Corner Cat sander. From the corded side of the company, we have a new 12″ sliding compound miter saw to look forward to. We’ll certainly be taking a closer look at several of these models throughout the year. For now though, enjoy the preview. Be sure to leave a comment if there’s something you’d really like for us to review!


Ryobi 18V One+ 10″ Orbital Buffer

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

  • Price: $39.97

One thing that I like about the new Ryobi 10″ Orbital Buffer is the crescent shaped handle. Ryobi tends to do a nice job in creating ergonomic grip areas for your hands and keeping it comfortable to use with their GripZone overmold.

Ryobi 18V One+ 6-1/2″ Circular Saw

There are a couple of really big talking points with the new Ryobi One+ 6-1/2″ Circular Saw that are sure to please users. First, Ryobi tells us that the motor is now 40% more powerful than previously. That’s a huge jump, particularly since it’s not brushless. They are saying that internal tests show corded performance in this model. The cutting capacity has also been improved by 35%, becoming more than enough to make it through 2x material easily.

Ryobi 18V One+ Speed Saw Rotary Cutter

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

  • Model: P531

  • Collet Size: 1/4″ and 1/8″

We got an earl sample the Ryobi P720 Hybrid Work Light and loved it! It’s one of the best wide throw work lights available. The dual power source option is a particularly attractive feature.

Ryobi 18V One+ Compact Radio with Bluetooth Wireless Technology

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

Milwaukee proved that there is room for a compact Bluetooth speaker with their M12 Wireless Jobsite Speaker. Ryobi is taking their One+ model a step further by including an AM/FM radio with 10 presets each. They’re promising premium sound with this one and you can bet we’ll want to get our hands on it for review!


Ryobi 18V One+ Hammer Drill/Driver Kit

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

  • Model: P1812

It’s kitted with a pair of compact batteries and a 30 minute charger. At just $129 and available in April, this looks like a solid contender as a Father’s Day gift this year!

Ryobi 18V One+ 3 Speed 1/2″ Impact Wrench

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

  • Model: P261
  • Anvil: 1/2″ with detent pin retention

  • Price: $119
  • Warranty: 3 years

Ryobi’s P261 One+ Impact Wrench continues the trend of offering more power in a more compact package. Okay, so it’s actually increased the power a lot. The P261 has 50% more torque than then P260 while dropping a little bit of weight in the process. You’ll get a 3 speed motor with this model and tri-beam LED lights on the chuck.

Ryobi 18V One+ Airstrike Angled Finish Nailer

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

  • Model: P330
  • Nail Gauge: 15 gauge finish nails

  • Available: April 2015

The Airstrike family gets a new family member with the 15 gauge Angled Finish Nailer to add to your 18 gauge P320/P360 and 16 gauge P325 arsenal. We’re mainly looking at an extension to what the Airstrike family is capable of as opposed to any major leaps in technology, so expect to get the same great performance we’ve seen from the line so far.

Ryobi 18V One+ Corner Cat Finish Sander

Ryobi 18V One+ Spring Update

  • Model: P401
  • Speed: 11,000 OPM
  • Weight: 1.35 pounds
  • Price: $29.97
  • Warranty: 3 years
  • Includes: P401 Corner Cat Finish Sander, (3) pieces of sandpaper, operator’s manual
  • Available: May 2015

The big improvement in the Ryobi P401 Corner Cat Finish Sander is in the size. Ryobi has managed to make it 23% more compact than the P400 and dropping nearly 1/2 a pound of weight. The power looks to be the same with a focus on oscillations that work to eliminate swirling.

The design of this sliding compound miter saw will give you a max cross cut of 13-1/4″ with  the 12 inch blade.
