Bought this to drill a few 1 inch holes in masonry block in my outdoor BBQ. Combined with some inexpensive masonry bits from Harbor Freight, this setup worked like a charm. Tool appears to be well built and sturdy. Like most Ryobi products, it strikes a good balance between workmanship and price with no worries about it breaking when I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kojak High quality and unexpensive Ryobi tools get professional work done
I have been doing commercial HVAC since mid-2010, and I have used this rotary hammer (and about six other cordless Ryobi tools) to build ductwork in new hospitals, schools, apartment buildings, and super stores (Walmarts). Ryobi tools are rated as DO-IT-YOURSELFER tools. However, I have used them for PROFFESSIONAL work. And, yes. They get the job done. I start to see more Ryobi tools in job sites.They all come with a 3 year warranty (just like Dewalt's). But, without the expensive price tag. the only bad thing I find in this rotary hammer is that it doesn't have a "hammer only" function--- I couldn't put chisels in it in order to break concrete. but, for the price, I can't really complaint.

It is a great tool as long as you know a few things. It has an SDS chuck, which means you need special drill bits; it cannot handle regular bits. Second, it switches from drill only to drill + hammer; it cannot perform hammer only, so it cannot take chisels. With this in mind, it is a great tool and performs the tasks well. A great add to my Ryobi collection.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RJinRiverside So far, so good.
I usually drill 1/4" , 2" deep holes for anchors and can drill 50+holes before the battery even thinks about stopping.
Its light weight and has plenty of power for the price. I use the one+ 4AH batter for the best life.
Not sure why the other reviewer was using Nicads when the LI are available and last so much longer.
Wish it had hammer only setting but thats why its not super expensive.
Oh and its hard to leave behind cause its such a bright green!! And my co-workers wont touch them because for some treason, they dont like ryobi

I had bought a similar Dewalt drill that broke within 2 weeks of lite use. Dewalt customer service was rude and not much help. So, I bought a Ryobi and it surpasses the Dewalt by leaps & bounds.
