Ryobi Days at Home Depot
I picked up a two pack of 18V 4AH batteries and charger for $100. Not a bad buy but....You get to select a free tool up to $100 value.

I picked up the hedge trimmers. I had borrowed my son's and was very impressed. I have the Echo gas trimmer and this thing was close in performance and not nearly as heavy.

There is a nice little invertor that was tempting. Great reviews on it.

Just a heads up.

re: Ryobi Days at Home Depot

re: Ryobi Days at Home Depot
When does Milwaukee have one? Any idea?

Eta I took all the links out because the ones I posted had to be a scam.

400 dollar combos for 90 dollars. I’d feel bad if you clicked and paid but never got them.

Much like that drake waterfowl thread I suckered into.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll swing by today to take a look. Those 18V 4AH batteries are game changers for their tools, the screw guns are completely different tools with them over the previous batteries.

Tax wading fool.


I feel like I am married to Milwaukee due to the amount of batteries and chargers I have.

Is it a good idea just to go ahead and switch to ryobi due to cost difference?

I am just a home diy guy and not a contractor.

That is what I use to power my tv at tailgates.
No generator, just Ryobi batteries and the inverter.

Also, the high pressure inflator is very useful.

re: Ryobi Days at Home Depot
I was married to Ryobi and was always seeing Dewalt on sale. I waited for a good sale and bought a Dewalt oscillating tool (needed a new one) and got a 5ah battery free. That way I can run either system and if one has a better sale for a tool I need I dont feel bad about getting it.

Looks like I will be hitting this one up for the hedge trimmer as well. Thanks OP.

I don’t have many battery tools yet. I only have one Ryobi so far. They caught my attention with one simple detail. Every battery tool Royobi has ever made can be powered by any battery they ever made.

Brands like Milwaukee and Dewalt decided to make your old battery tools useless when they switched to lithium batteries. Well, screw that. When I learned about Royobis battery compatibility I became a fan.

re: Ryobi Days at Home Depot
For DYI stuff they are hard to beat due to the cost and the wide variety of tools, I have a couple Milwaukee cordless drills and nut drivers and a couple Dewalt cordless tools including a my 1/2 impact that is just stupid strong. The red and yellow tools are lighter and stronger side by side and will probably hold up longer but for stuff around the house and smaller building projects they could also be seen as overkill. The new batteries have really helped out the ryobi tools, like doubled the run time and double the torque imo.

. Are you talking about how they can run the same battery across multiple tools?

If that’s the case, don’t most companies do that now?

Now they do, but even the old blue ryobi tools can take the new batteries that are available today.

I did the same thing since we kept our LSU tickets last year and technically weren't supposed to have "tailgates". Used that to power the TV instead of a generator but only got an hour or so on the 40V 4AH battery. 32" TV. What kind of life are you getting?

When Dewalt and Milwaukee switched from NiCad to lithium, the the older tools would not accept the new lithium batteries. You had to buy a new tool that accepted the new batteries. When Royobi switched to lithium, those batteries are still compatible with all of their tools.

re: Ryobi Days at Home Depot
You will notice a tremendous drop in quality, I own both — mostly Ryobi. Ryobi makes some handy stuff, priced right. I’ve been really disappointed with a few Ryobi purchases. Milwaukee is only a problem on day of purchase.
