Questions & Answers

reverse on drill

does this drill have a reverse on it

will it drill thru cement

cement drilling
Asked by: yasin251
I have used it to drill into concrete to secure some studs, but I was not able to go all the way through due to the thickness of the pad and the length of the concrete drill bit. I imagine if I had a longer bit it would have made it through. I was using a 1/4" concrete bit.

I plan to get a 12 foot extension cord. What kind of extension cord should I get?

I plan to get a 12 foot extension cord. What kind of extension cord should I get?
Asked by: pika
Hello Pika, this is Cerah with Ryobi. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. A wire gauge size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is recommended for an extension cord 50 feet or less in length. A cord exceeding 100 feet is not recommended. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Thanks for your question.

Does the reverse have as much power as forward?

Does the reverse have as much power as forward?
Asked by: TC
Thank you for asking, TC. Since the variable speed on this drill is based off of the pressure you place on the trigger, the speed forward versus in reverse should be the same depending on the pressure your place on that trigger in either direction. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ryobi! -Keri

5.5-Amp 3/8 in. Variable Speed Drill is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 247.

I became a widow last year, so now I have to be Ms. Fixit myself. I got this drill to install curtain rods. There are some cordless drills in the garage but the battery died before I got one bracket installed. :( This one suits me needs perfectly and I would recommend it to friends.

I was looking for a small drill with a cord as electricity is always available but a battery always needs to be charged when you need it now. This little mighty giant is perfect. It has all the power I need. I have had it for about a month. I like that it has a reverse feature.

Worked great for awhile, and I was happy with it, but then the locking feature seemed to fail and the drill bits kept getting caught in the wood and I had to laboriously coax them out. Also, there doesn't seem to be any options for increasing torque (or whatever it's called). THis last project, attempting to drill and screw on a piece of birch plywood as a pull-out shelf underlayment, was such an exercise in frustration that I resorted to Liquid Nails to hold it to the shelf support. The extra star is because it worked fine FOR AWHILE and I was happy with it FOR AWHILE. Precisely I've had it for about two years and use it occasionally for minor DIY tasks

It is also a lot slimmer than my previous drill which allows it to reach screws in tight places. The mid-handle also allows it to squeeze into tight spots. The chuck grip is too small to get my hands around. This is a corded drill, so Ryobi please put a cord on it! 6' is a useless length, my previous black and decker had a 10' cord which would reach anywhere in any room of my house without an extension cord; grab the drill and drill, vs grab the drill, find an extension cord, uncoil it, untangle it, drill, repack drill and extension cord. I wish the direction lever was somewhere else, I'm constantly bumping it which disables the drill.

It is easy to use and able to fit into smaller places than my battery operated drill and my 1/2" drill. The speed chuck is a big plus, making the bit change fast and reliable. A must-have tool for the travelling tool box.

Great product I have been using it for a little over 6 months now and I am still very happy with the performance. I prefer this drill to the corded Dewalt. The Ryobi drill is more compact and has better speed control compared with the Dewalt.

A friend recommended this one, he has had one for several years and said it works just fine. I have only used it a little, but so far it is great.
