Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maria Surprisingly Powerful!
Bought this on sale to complement my WeedEater/Blower combo after reading all the rave reviews... It DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!! Granted, at first the color and size made them "appear" like toys, but they are far from it! Powerful enough to do literally any job around the house with little ease! 5 Stars without a doubt

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retired Best Purchase Ever
I just finished building 3 Adirondack chairs using this tool set. There were no cords to trip over or get in the way. I have already added an impact drill to this set. There was no need to recharge the batteries, plenty of power for my project. My best tool purchase ever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Great Customer Service
When I first purchased this product, I was disappointed. The batteries that came with it were defective. They would not hold a charge and rendered the tools useless. However, Ryobi customer service, after investigating the problem, not only replaced the batteries, they sent me upgraded batteries and charger and an additional tool. With the new batteries, all the tools have great staying power. I am doing a complete house remodel and I am giving these tools a real workout. They are the first tools I reach for. I am very satisfied with this purchase and very impressed with Ryobi's customer service. These tools are a very good value for cost choice. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norm Worth every penny.
I am continually amazed at how much better Lithium-ion batteries are over Ni-cad's. I used this 4-piece combo kit to replace a mud room floor. The circular saw had plenty of power to cut through an 8' length of 3/4" plywood, then I used the same battery to power the sawzall to finish demolition of the old floor. The drill had just as much power at the end of sinking about 100- 2" screws through 3/4" plywood as it did, when I started. The flashlight projects a strong beam that can be adjusted to focus in on your work area. The Lithium-ion batteries were recharged in about an hour versus a Ni-cad's 6 to 12 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by halfwolf This is a great tool combo.
This is a great combo, all except for the light. The light might be used in the future, but has not been of use as of yet. The circular saw is great, but uses a lot of juice, and can do what most electrical saws can. The drill seems to last forever on a single charge and with the right bits can do whatever is needed. The reciprocating saw is great and works just as good as high dollar ones. Overall this is a great buy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by booneperc A "must own" set of power tools
If only I had this set of Ryobi power tools when I first started remodeling and repair projects 30 years ago my life would have been a LOT easier. I am impressed with the power and length of time I can work on one battery charge. I recently completed work on installing a skylight and used every tool in this set multiple times. It made it so much easier than the days of corded tools and hand saws. I even used the light to find my cat that climbed up the ladder into the attic and got lost in the insulation-ha! My neighbor owns this set and I saw how convenient these tools were. That's when I bought my own.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janice Just right for household projects
The tools are a nice size to handle, get the job done, and are light enough to handle easily due to the lithium ion batteries. They also have an amazing amount of power for ripping through materials during my demolition. I would recommend these to anyone. I also like the nice carrying case they came in. The value is amazing. I got a circular saw, a reciprocating saw, an 18 volt drill and a flashlight for about 150.00, which is an amazing buy considering a battery two pack costs around 100.00. At first I thought they were a little flimsy, but not true. The weight is deceiving. I guess I just expect an 18 volt drill to be heavy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1Texan Very impressed with this Ryobi Combo Kit
I purchased to set to complete a few DIY projects around the house. The cordless functionality is great and makes the tools easier to handle. They are sturdy and well made considering they are cordless. For someone doing heavy construction of course this is not the kit for you but for the average homeowner it is plenty enough. I added the Ryobi cordless miter saw to this kit and it also works great. Battery life is good depending on what you are cutting an the type of blades. The blades that come with the saw is mainly for ripping but you can easily change it out for a finish type blade with finer teeth. I am very satisfied with the kit and have had no problems with it after about 6 months of use. I did all the trim work in the bathroom shown in the picture below using this combo kit and the Ryobi cordless miter saw. This includes building the line cabinet, medicine cabinet, wainscoting and trim around the mirror.
