Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 11Bisme wrote previous review light failed first use
Now first use of recipricating saw stopped working after 5(five) minutes cutting root of tree that died over ten reats ago. all debris was clear from around root, no dirt, no rocks in fact saw blade could not make contact with anything but rotted root. i chopped with axe in 2(two) minutes. re:flashlight refered to DEWALT LIGHT REPLACMENT. was contacted by RYOBI ADVISED ONLY REPRESENTED LIGHT SAW MY PROBLEM. OHH WELL understand completly since Im a disabled veteran, and retired fron USA federal govt. WE CALLED THIS THE BURACRAT SHUFFEL. you know it as STONE WALLING. stay away in my opinion RYOBI IS GARBAGE BASED ON TWo FALLURES both first time use, and the bueracrat shuffel by RYOBI. Possible product damaged in shipment based on positive reviews, BUT I WILL NEVER KNOW I ONLY HAVE TWO BROKEN PRODUCTS, and two not yet used.

I have bought the whole toolkit and the batteries stop working after a short amount of time. They should not sell these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russ Great entrylevel kit, or basic kit for pros
This is a great kit for DIY'ers entering the Ryobi world, quickly expanding your lineup of tools, or as a set for professional use if you take proper care of the tools. The flashlight come in handy more often than you'd think. The saw will cut through 2x lumber but just barely. It does have plenty of power with the lithium batteries though! The reciprocating saw has good power, but lacks an adjustable foot plate or anti vibration handle. It will get the job done however. The drill is of decent quality and build, and is more than up to the task of drilling lots of holes and running long screws. Every homeowner should have one of these kits around for basic fixes and home improvement.

This is a great combo kit by Ryob. The tools are all lightweight and durable.
The circular saw is easy to use and powerful enough for most jobs. I have used it to build a deck - from cutting 4x4 pressure treated lumber to installing the composite decking that required precision 45 degree cuts. It is easy to change the blade, the clear blade guard is durable and doesn't get in the way and the battery holds a strong charge for a good amount of time. The kit includes a second battery that can be used while the first one is recharging in the fast charger.
The drill is good and fairly powerful but I find the bit comes loose sometimes while using it. It should have a better lock down on the bit. Other than that, I have had no problems at all driving 3 inch deck screws into pressure treated lumber or installing composite deck boards.
The reciprocating saw is great and it is very easy to change the blades by pulling back on a lever and just swapping out the old blade for a new one. I have use this to cut pressure treated lumber and to cut small saplings and tree branches. It is powerful and very convenient and I love the powerful batteries.
The light is fantastic, very bright and the light head pivots to point in many directions allowing me to direct the light where I need it - great touch!
Overall this is a great kit especially when it is on sale. Would highly recommend.
