Can I Use This For Automotive Work

Hello Ievren81, thank you for your question, the RYOBI 18-Volt ONE+ Cordless 3-Speed 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver can be used to remove nuts and bolts but we do not recommend it to be used for the removal of lug nuts.

How do I order the battery charger???!!!

Asked by Speedy February 19, 2020

Hi Speedy, The Ryobi 18v Battery charger is available at your Home Depot store or Home Depot online. Thanks for asking. Greg

what difference is there between p237 vs p238

Asked by woodywoodpecker December 8, 2019

The P-238 is brushless nd the P-237 uses brushes. Tools using brushless technology have higher torque and use less power, therefore run longer.

what is the diffeernce between impact driver & pulse driver

Asked by Johnny1 August 4, 2019

A big difference is how they work. The impact driver is a mechanical unit while the pulse driver is hydraulic. Copied from owners manual and pasted here: HYDRAULIC IMPACT TOOL This impact driver uses oil to transfer the impacting motion, resulting in quieter operation. Prolonged periods of heavy use can cause the oil in the tool to overheat, resulting in slower driving. If you experience decreased performance, allow the tool to cool before resuming operation. NOTE: When operating the tool in extreme cold temperatures, it may be necessary to warm the oil before use. To do this, pull and hold the trigger with no load for several seconds before beginning operation. FYI (again from OM) APPLICATIONS You may use this product for the purposes listed below:  Driving long deck screws, driving carriage bolts into deck posts; driving Tapcon® screws into block walls and con- crete; driving screws into metal studs. And NOTICE: The impact driver is not designed to be used as a drill.

does home depot warranty ryobi tools

Asked by cd May 24, 2019

Hello, thanks for your question. Home Depot warranties up to 90 days, then after that you'd need to call Ryobi customer service.

Asked by cindywhorley03141959 March 5, 2019

It has a light on it. Three of them on the front. It will hang curtain brackets. Word of caution... Select a lower speed/torque setting to do this. The high speed/high torque will over tighten any screws you use for that purpose if you are not completely sure of the strength of this tool.

Is the "impact socket for bolts", mentioned by Greg on the Ryobi Tools Team in his Feb. 15 answer...

Asked by TC3 February 25, 2019

The Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ Cordless Impact Drivers [either 'brushed' or 'brushless' versions] have a Quarter Hex Chuck. They both can be used for 'driving bolts' with the properly sized socket and the quarter inch hex drive adapter. This Impact Driver will/can do a very good job driving fasteners to quick assembly of 'items' requiring use of bolts, screws and nuts. The use of 'IMPACT CAPABLE' sockets will serve you well, but be careful not to expect the results of Heavy Duty ratcheting IMPACT Guns using air tools. Pay attention to the sounds and performance of the 18+Volt Impact Drivers to not over work the tool. On the same note DO EXPECT the same TORQUE to be applied in the joints created. You may see some differences in capability of achieving 'max torque' between the 'Brushed and Brushless tools [refer to tool specs for each type]. I use my Ryobi 18 Volt+ IMPACT Driver for assembling Tool Carts, Shelving Units...etc.

I ordered for it and Home Depot delivers...what more can be so assuring! Thanks HD!!!
by McEstus Oshinowo
works good
I’m a huge fan of every cordless ryobi tool I have. You really can’t go wrong with this for the price. I went with this over the milwaukee mainly because I already have multiple ryobi batteries. The second reason is because the milwaukee has problems keeping the items inside of it while working overhead. Search youtube for the M18 driver problems. This tool is very lightweight and nimble. It has great battery life and it is very fast at driving. I don’t have any dislikes on it so far. I have only used it a few times but I can tell there won’t be any issues based on the reliability of my other ryobi products. It does meet my expectations. Please hit thumbs up if this was helpful.

My review is only from the perspective of a weekend DIYer not from a contractor, remodeler or a professional. The only positives is this impact drill has the power to fasten 5" lag bolts very easily. It is cheap. The collet for the bits has a nice insertion and release. Now the negatives, the product is very bulky and is extremely top and bottom heavy. Not something I would want to use for the entire day. The 3 speed switch is very difficult to move between the different speeds meaning that it's loose and does not have a tactile feel. You either go from speed 1 or speed 3. The small magnet pad is just okay, it's recessed a few millimeters so you don't have access to the entire magnet pad and holds only a couple screws. If you're looking for something cheap and inexpensive and don't mind it being heavy then this is for you. If you're looking for something of more quality this is not the product for you.

Very good Impact Driver
I have 3 of these impact drivers.I was working on our dock last year when my impact driver got knocked in the water on the GA coast. It stayed in the salt water for three days.When i caught the tide right where i could see it i pulled it out and i cleaned it and sprayed wd/40.I also let it dry in the sun for one day and put a new battery in it.To my suprise it still worked.This has been over a year now and im still using it.
by John F
I have been with this tool for about 3 months and I can only say that it is spectacular, there is no screw that resists it, it works very well and it has helped me in everything that I am doing in my house. It is honestly the best of the best in Ryobi tools.
