Green Ryobi Powertools?
Thoughts on these? They are cluttered all over CL and Facebook sale sites. Is the market just saturated with these tools or are they crap?

I always thought ryobi was a decent box store type brand. Not Bosch or Dewalt good but decent?

$80 10” sliding miter saw? Pics looks near spotless?

Ryobi is fine for around the home use.

I have quite a few ryobi one tools as well as the sliding miter saw and band saw. They’re perfect for what I do, which is a little bit of woodworking and general home owner projects

Jigsaw, battery operated screw gun, and battery operated weed eater here. I like them, and they have held up well. Wouldn't put them up against dewalt or Bosch at a jobsite though.

I have all ryobi tools. Really only because my dad has all ryobi stuff and we can lend or borrow.

Its held up pretty well. He is a 100% diy guy and we've had good luck with the tools.

I have Ryobi battery powered: weed eater, drill, circular saw, jigsaw, blower and electric sander. Had them all for years. Still all work like a charm and I’m hard on tools.

Ryobi is fine for just your own home but regardless I will never own a power equipment tool that isn't stihl (I have had both). Stihl is much more expensive but it will last you forever and has so much more power. With the ryobi you will ask youself if there is an easier or faster way. The answer is stihl; it essentially does all of the work for you.

Not 100% sure, but I think the parent company also makes Milwaukee brand tools.

Have them all and I work the hell out of them. Outstanding for a DIY for around the house.

Hedge trimmer, drill and saw. the only issue I have ever had was with the small P-102 2.0 Ah battery. If they sat for a month they wouldn't take a charge. Finally picked up the 4 Ah batteries and haven't looked back.

Mine did that also. Watched a YouTube video and just lightly dampened the contacts on batter and put on charge. Started working again and no problems since. May or may not work in your case, but worth a try

Ryobi is great for DIY stuff, like others have said.

Consider the nature of the tool, and the DIY stuff you have people doing.
You need to fix up a room or a shed, you want to do it yourself. You go buy a decent tool, it works, you're done... and for the next 6 months you don't use any cordless power tools except maybe a drill.

You're probably not going to use it again in the near future, do you try to get $80 out of it, or just keep it packed up somewhere?

I think that's the issue.
