Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NightWolf Picked up on a whim
Picked this up from the local Home Depot on a whim as I had been starting to look at "multi tools" Found many uses for it including the very next day after purchase when refinishing/repairing our front deck. The grout remover blade will be getting a workout shortly as we are about to renovate our master bath. The built in light is handy as I can never seem to get enough light on anything I'm working on

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScarfaceSix An Excellent Tool!
I used this tool on a project and my neighbors observed how it worked and asked to borrow it for their project. I agreed, and two months later, I bought this tool because the neighbor found "more stuff" to do with the borrowed one! It is excellent for lrage or mall area sanding project, cutting into wood near the center of the piece, and MANY other uses. I love this tool!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by defuller Great tool, BUT...
This a great and very versatile tool. I have loved using it for everything from cutting through sheetrock to install a cut-in electrical box, to cutting the corroded bolts off a toilet tank. I also purchased a right-angle drill attachment head for it and like being able to drill or drive screws in tight spaces that my regular drill/driver won't fit. BUT... I have gone through 2 of these now. They last about a year and then the contact tabs in the battery well break off, and it just quits in the middle of a job! It has a 2 year warranty, but I hate being without this very handy tool day to day on the jobsite while having to wait for shipping each way. So for light, occasional use it might be fine. But for daily use by a contractor I wouldn't recommend it. I'm going to attach a picture so you can see what I mean about the tabs breaking off.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BigAl Not the best Ryobi has made
I own several One Plus tools, and for the most part I really like them. However, Ryobi seems to have sacrificed a lot of quality in their newer green colored products compared to the older blue ones; more specifically the trigger switches, which are incredibly poor quality. This multi-tool has a lot of good attributes and works very well. The fact that it's compatible with all of the Rigid tool heads is a real plus, but again, the trigger switch is very poor quality. Also, there is a piece of molded square reinforcement inside the hand grip that chews its way into any battery stem. You are in for a real surprise the first time to go to remove the battery, it almost seems like it has been glued in. This is a tool that works on the principle of vibration; you would think Ryobi would have tested that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Msurff Cool tool!
I am currently doing an engineered hardwood glue down on the whole first floor of my newly build home. Needed a multi-tool and I had already purchased a Ryobi lithium combo kit so I got this toy! It did it's job and as others have said... wish there was more to do. Master Bath, 2 bathrooms and laundry room is up for tiles... can't wait to use it. Great design. Battery pack end squares up nicely on the ground while lifting the front end with a piece of hardwood for perfect cut. Only other issues are that it does overheat if you use it continuously and the battery just dies (it was through a metal threshold), but that's why you have two! I'm going to get the Ryobi cordless nailer next week. They're doing things right at Ryobi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveL Feels solid and works great
Used the tool for sanding and it exceeded expectations. Easy to control. Cordless feature is handy. Nice addition to my Ryobi collection. Lacks a quick change feature but that is a minor issue for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by iamartimus Very versatile tool
I purchased this tool about 2 weeks ago and have been using it quite a bit because I am in the process of refininacing my home and will be getting an appraisal very soon.
The tools that come with this kit is exactly what I needed so far, and I have used them all. Had to use some Fix-It-All in some places and used the tools to cut it down and sand and it worked wonderfully.
This tool is built, like the other RYOBI tools I purchased, very solid and well made. Fits in the hand quite comfortable, and I have average size hands.
There are just a few things that keep this from being perfect, even though I rated this as 5 stars. Like some mentioned, there should be a slot to hold the allen wrench. It is a pain having to look for it in the box everytime I change the head. I been changing the heads a lot, so yes, it was a pain. It would also be good for RYOBI to make their own interchangable heads, but I did read somewhere that RIDGID tools fit on this as well, but only had a very limited amount of choices at my local Home Depot.
Also, for the sanding head, the head uses velcro to fasten the sandpaper to the head, but I could only find ones that use sticky tape type material. It works ok, but would come loose sometimes.
Other than that, as much as I have been using this tool, this is great! To have a tool that has multiple uses is the best way to keep the cost down. It's much easier to convince the wife since I already own a few RYOBI One+ tools that she's ok with me getting more.
Overall I recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matto So Handy
This came part of the 6 tool package and I thought that I would never use it. In fact, I've used it the most out of any of the tools. Repairing my porch columns, it was instrumental in cutting out the rotten wood and cutting around the railings. I've used it to trim the rose bushes, cut off nail heads, cut dead branches off trees, trim off excess foam insulation. I used it to shave a door jamb so the door would close, trim a chair so it wouldn't wobble, and get trim to fit around the stairwell landing. I even used it to clean burnt food off my cast iron pan. Don't know how I got along without it.
