RYOBI® 18V ONE+ 6 PC. LITHIUM+™ Ultimate Combo Kit Review

As most of you that read my blog already know, I’m a DIY kind of gal. I don’t mind getting down and dirty to get a job done. After all, If I do it myself I save a ton of money, and we all know, I LOVE MY MONEY!

In my most recent project, the remolding of my bedroom I used the RYOBI® 18V ONE+ 6 PC. LITHIUM+™ Ultimate Combo Kit to not only tear out an existing closet but to build a new and larger walk-in-closet as well. The first mistake I made was showing these new toys to my hubby. He quickly looked them over, grabbed the reciprocating Saw and began making a cut for the new closest doors. Umm, in his excitement he kept cutting until he cut to far. It was fixable and well, kind of funny too.

These tools are well made and have a lot of features I’ve not found on other brands. For instance all of the tools have an LED light, when using the tools the light illuminates enough that you can actually see what you are doing! Also, each of the tools have a magnetic area that you can actually lay your screws on, keeping them in place while your work.

One of the things I love most about these Ryobi tools is the grip, they feel and fit perfectly in my hand. These tools are more than powerful enough to get the job done. And for me they are not too heavy. This combo kit also comes with a bag that fits the entire set nicely with room to spare. Another nice thing is the dual chemistry charger it’s amazing and a must have. It can charge your Lithium+™ Lithium-ion Batteries in 30 minutes or LESS! Which is great because when you’re working on a project and your batteries die, you would normally have to wait hours for them to recharge!

My husband is a carpenter and uses many Ryobi tools professionally as well as we both use their tools here at home. Ryobi offers a great selection of well made and reliable products. Their cordless items are light weight and maintain a longer battery charge than other brands on the market.

Right now my husband and I own a Dewalt but we need something more powerful and reliable. I have never tried Ryobi. Seems like it may be a good investment, especially when you work in the remodeling/maintenance business like we do!

So many great features, I love how user friendly the products are and how they make it so much easier to work. I am still learning so much when it comes to home repairs so having things like magnetized screw holders, LED lights and battery chargers are so helpful.

Ryobi products have been tried and tested in our home, and I can tell you that they will last a very long time. The weight of the drill is manageable, even for me!

The Ryobi line of power tools is one that we have trusted for years. I especially like the fact that these hand tools are lighter and easier to handle for whatever DIY project you are doing.

I love the Ryobi 18V one + combo tool assortment and know my husband would also. The way that the battery is interchangeable with the other 18V one= tools is a definite plus. I love the magtray and the adapter on board as well as the led light. The Ryobi tool assortment is a great deal and would be put to good use at my house.
