A: Hello Tanner, We do not recommend using the RYOBI 18-Volt ONE+ Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver Kit with 4.0Ah LITHIUM+ Battery, Charger and Bag P1813 with an ice auger blade for ice fishing. I hope this helps and thanks for contacting RYOBI! - Eve
A: I haven't, but I doubt the 18 volt is powerful enough.
A: I've been waiting for this to be sold as tool only since the kit became available - still nothing. The P214 that Tool Team called out is NOT the same drill. This one is listed at 750 inch pounds, the P214 is 600.
A: Yes, at almost any Home Depot. They will be more than glad to sell you the tool, the battery or the charger separately. I have several drills everywhere around the house because the kit didn't cost much more than the bare tool. So I thought, why not? I now have them out back with my yard tools and in the garage with my car tools. Never far to grab a drill or a charger, and the large stockpile of batteries really comes in handy when I'm doing intensive work, like the belt sander or the 7" circular saw, which gobble electricity. The new lithium batteries last so much longer than the old NiCads, and hold their charge better, too, so having a plethora of them is just great.
A: Yes i ordered mine online
A: I could not find it on Home Depot site but usually the price of the kits is less than if you bought them separately
A: Hi Trashinu Thanks for your inquiry. P214 is a RYOBI 18-Volt ONE+ Cordless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver (Tool Only). We hope this helps. Best Regards Thank you for contacting RYOBI
A: At the time I purchased it, it was only available as a kit. The battery charger is a fast type and the 4 A battery is a must for the drill, the bag came in handy for carrying the drill and my 3 speed Ryobi driver and Drill bits/ screwdriver hex bits. You get a better deal on the price of the kit than buying it separate .
A: Yes, provided the shank will fit into a 1/2" chuck.
A: It's should be able to lock into the chuck as long as it's not over half inch on the wide part. The hard part might be just keeping it tight. Just try to fit it in between the tightening prongs.
A: I'm not familiar with a 3-flat shank, but if the 3 flat shank will firmly fit into a 1/4" hex socket and has a retention groove like that on a hex shank screwdriver bit, I would be tempted to give it a try if I already had the drill. If neither the 1/4" hex or the retention groove is not a match, it won't work. Before I plopped down money for a tool, I would take the bit to H.D. and try it to make sure it will fit and stay retained, and that the action of the hammer drill will not tear up either the bit or the drill.
A: Hello Phil, thank you for your question, the RYOBI 18-Volt ONE+ Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver Kit with 4.0Ah LITHIUM+ Battery, Charger and Bag can be used with a 3 flat shank bit.
A: , Yes, as long as it is in the size range of the drill, A tre-sided bit shank just makes for a more secure bit
A: I had answered this question before taking a close look at the chuck on the drill in the photo. This is an adjustable chuck type bit holder, which has a wider range than the 1/4" hex drills. A three sided shank will definitely fit the chuck as long as it is straight and will slide into the half-inch chuck. Whether it's wise to do so depends on how well the shank fits the chuck, whether the drill tip spins on center, and how rough you are going to be on the bit. If it doesn't fit the chuck, there is a type of socket that is the size of a spark plug socket, but it is filled with metal pins that resemble nails, and into which you can put non-standard items. Adapting the socket to the drill is fairly easy, and the special socket can allow almost anything to then be spun by the drill.
A: Yes, the hammer drill can be used to drill holes or drive screws. It does not matter if it is drywall, metal,concrete, or wood. Just make sure you use the correct screw for the job. In your case that would be drywall screws.
A: Hello lara, thank you for your question. In the drilling mode you could use the RYOBI 18-Volt ONE+ Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver to install screws into drywall, make sure to run a few test screws to determine which torque setting you may need to set it to. - Justin
A: Yes, it will be way more than enough to drive screws for installing drywall. However, depending on your needs, Ryobi does make a drywall screw gun (model P225) that may work better for that application.
A: The Hammer-Drill has 3 settings. With it set on Drive, it functions as any other screw gun. On Drill in functions as a regular drill. The functions are depicted as icons.Any time you are using Drive, the speed should be set on 1
A: Yes. The drill will work for all of your tasks. Just be sure to set the torque gage at a lower setting.
A: It can be used for drywall screws. I'd recommend getting a drywall bit for a few dollars to help get the depth setting right though.
