Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 2 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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.
