Customer Questions & Answers

Movement in the bit

Once I lock in the drill bit, there is a slight play (forward and backwards movement) in the bit. Is this normal ? It locks in place, does not fall off but not sure if the play is normal.

What's the difference between the P236 driver & the P236A driver

Looking to purchase one of these & this is what's hanging me up. Don't know if there is an actual difference or if the model number just distinguishes between a bare tool & a kit tool. Any help would be appreciated.
Asked by: RB
Hi Highstyle, The differences with these is dealing with the variable speeds. One is activated by the trigger only and the other you can actually adjust on top of the unit. Hope this helps!

Why is there no belt clip ?

Asked by: Css777
There is a belt clip on the new model, as well as a three speed selector switch. If you need those features, you should check out the model P237

ONE+ 18-Volt 1/4 in. Cordless Impact Driver (Tool Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 314.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good I bought a floor model. It seems to stop when under heavy load but when I pull the trigger again it finishes the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed. I recently purchased this impact driver because I somehow managed to misplace my last one. After driving the first screw, I immediately noticed the difference between this one and the older model. This tool is considerably more powerful than the one I was using before. I was only using 1 1/4" screws for the project I was working on, so I had to try some 3" screws in the basement. I screwed a 3/4" block to a stud and it had no problem with it. We use Bosch tools at my shop, and this tool drives the screws just as well and just as fast. The only other test will be how well it will hold up over time, but for $70, I am very pleased with this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact with a strong punch. I picked this up to drill a 1" hole through two 2x4s to feed coax cable from the attic to the wall and coupled with a Bosch Daredevil spade bit this bored the hole like a hot knife through butter. It literally took me about 5 seconds to penetrate the 2x4s. What an awesome combination for such task. In the past I've used a cordless Dewalt driver and a cordless Black and Decker to make those same holes but the power of this impact driver made the job a lot more effortless. I can't wait to find other projects to use this on. The drill feels very solid, not cheap at all, and has plenty of power. I'm now officially a Ryobi fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Driver. The LED is basically a gimmick though I love this tool for the fact that its a great product for the price. I actually bought this driver because it had the LED lighting on it over the cheaper model. The thing about the LED's though is they dont turn on without you pulling the trigger. So in a dark place you cant actually line up your drill without it actually spinning, which removes the entire reason for having LED's. Then they turn off immediately after you release the trigger, so you cant just hit it quickly to turn on the LED's, line up, then drill. Sure this driver is probably made better than the cheaper model, but other than that I don't really see a need to go with this over the cheaper model. If they fixed the LED modes then yes I would highly suggest this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bare-Tool Buy Impact Driver If you have Ryobi green line tools, this is an excellent add-on piece of useful cordless gear. It will 'eat' through hard woods, driver 3" lag bolts, and drill through the toughest materials with ease. For a DIYer on a budget, this is the impact driver. I also have Ryobi's 18V Compact Drill that is a fine product. The one brand I prefer to Ryobi is Bosch--however, Ryobi is a darn close second-place tool. If you can buy these products for sale or bare-tool prices, you'll get one great buy. At ratail prices I'd look to Bosch over Ryobi; but when on sale, this green line of Li-Ion devices is excellent; and the same can be said for the 18V (half-inch chuck) Compact Drill/Driver (weighs 3 lbs 13 ounces with standard battery).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryobi 18volt impact driver model P230 Tool is well designed and balanced fitting very comfortably in your hand.The tool is lighter than most battery powered drills so you encounter less fatigue while using for long periods of time.The tool is excellent for drilling deck screws of all lengths, the impact action allows the user to use less force for both driving and removing screws and bolts and nuts. I also find that the impact driver is excellent for driving drywall screws when hanging drywall the impact action again allows you to snug the screw perfectly in the drywall panel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has served me well This little impact driver has served me well. I've driven over 100000 screws with it, and even set 8" long 1/2 inch lag bolts into telephone poles. While it won't really spin the lug nuts off of a car tire, it certainly has plenty of power to run box after box of 3.5 inch deck screws all day long without killing your wrist. I forgot it on the way to a job site the other day and had to use my cordless drill to run deck screws. By the end of the day, I was sore in my forearm and wrist from the inevitable twisting that occurs when the screw seats and causes kickback when using a regular drill/driver. I couldn't wait to get my impact back to the job site the next day. If you've ever wondered to yourself what the big deal is about impact drivers and have insisted that your drill is just fine for installing screws, let me tell you that you have to try this tool out. Your wrist will thank you and you'll be driving longer screws with less slippage of the bit too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drives screws hard and fast A battery powered impact driver is something you should probably only buy if you already have a battery powered drill. The drill is more versatile, but the impact driver has one distinct advantage: it can drive screws all the way in, quickly. Where a regular drill starts to bog down, an impact driver can keep going by exerting a much larger amount of torque intermittently instead of a smaller amount of torque continuously. If you are driving a lot of screws and you are not too concerned about precision (e.g. you are building a deck), an impact driver can really speed things up. That's for impact drivers in general. As for this particular impact driver: it works. The quick-release collet is very easy to use, and the thing packs a serious amount of punch. The tool is not too heavy and easy to hold in your hand. Maybe, if you are a pro using the tool every day all day, you might want a more expensive brand, but you really need to think twice before making that decision. If you buy a battery-powered power tool, you're really buying into a whole line of power tools. The more tools you have from the same brand, the more use you get out of your batteries, which in many cases make up a considerably portion of the price of the tools. If you buy into an expensive brand, then you are stuck with buying more expensive tools, even for tasks that you do not do very frequently. If you buy into a brand that has a limited range of battery tools, you'll end up with several different sets of chargers and batteries. With Ryobi, you have a brand that carries an amazing variety of 18V battery powered tools: they have all the standard power tools, but also various other things like a handheld vacuum cleaner and several light-duty yard tools. The reputation for reliability may not be the very best out there, but unless you're using your tools all day every day, I really don't think you need to get anything more expensive than Ryobi just because you're concerned with reliability. (Of course, for precision woodworking and dust collection, the top end brands really are better. But for the typical construction application, I think the difference is vastly overstated.)
