First off, all you "proffesional" contractors can ignore this post. I am writing this for the average homeowner/ handyman like myself. I bought myself the Ryobi 8 piece cordless 18v tool set for Christmas a little early. Have had a chance to check out and use most of the set. The Drill, Vacuum, and Jig saw work great, I had some remodeling to finish in the laundry room and gave them a good work out. I took the Reciprocating saw on a job with me Thursday and it worked flawlessly for cutting angle iron 38' up in the air. Beats the He77 out of using extension cords.The 5 1/2" circular saw worked flawlessly on 1/4", 3/4' Oak plywood and on some 1/2" MDF. It came with a carbide tipped blade. I have not tried the Stud Finder, Flashlight, or Chain Saw yet, but I have a good feeling about the chainsaw. Ryobi uses some other tool manufacturers to make some of their products and I noticed the bottle of bar oil that came in the set has a Homelite label on it. Big Grin Will update as further use arises, but Ryobi does make a good tool for homeowners and hobbiest. IMHO. The only downside to this set is the batteries take an hour to charge. The set comes with 2 batteries and I bought an extra two pack for $38. I bought this set for $249, but a couple days later they started the 20 percent off sale for cordless sets and when I told them I would just bring it back and buy another new set they gave me a refund for the sale difference.
