  • Where is the RIDGID version of this TTI?

    Will there be a RIDGID version of this Ryobi Inverter?

    Oh, wait...there can't be because RIDGID does not have any high voltage batteries .

    So get yourself one of these. It's the best deal out there right now I think for the price.
    It also doubles as a charger for the four batteries when grid power is available.

    Right off there are two things I would like to see related to this inverter.

    The first is take this and repackage it in a Ryobi Link compatible box the same size/footprint as their stackable storage boxes.
    That would let people easily move it with their tools and it could be used to power corded tools in places where normal AC power is not available.

    The second is add an accessory fold-up array of solar panels that can power the inverter directly and any available power above that currently being utilized is directed to recharge the batteries.

    I don't think any of the other brands of large (>1200w) inverters are priced less than $1000 with batteries.
    The Ryobi is $849 with two 6AH batteries and $749 as a bare tool, so getting two 6AH 40V batteries for $100 is a good deal I think especially if you have any Ryobi 40V tools already.

    Bob, I have 2 along with the parallel kit to double the output. Not to mention 8-6ah batteries.

    if you have all day to wait and charge them while connected to the inverter ok, otherwise take them out and charge with a fast charger. Much better technology than my dewalt power station.

      Agree Rick but the Ryobi does give you the option to charge the batteries in the inverter, I don't believe the other brands do that.
      And they can be paralleled as you pointed out.

      I bought the Ryobi inverter gas-powered generator a few years ago for times when I do not want to run my big Generac generator.
      It's held up well but I don't use it that often. Still it has never failed to start in over 5 years when I go to use it and that's the best yardstick I can think of.

      I would had my roof covered with solar IF I could get solar. But I can't tie into the grid and sell excess power back so that increases the year to year operating costs significantly as nothing to offset power consumed and no SRECs. I can install but it would be completely out of pocket and my only payback would be if I had a system big enough to power the house during daylight and a big enough battery to power the house when there is not enough Sun to produce power, sometimes for more than 48 hours. So big solar array plus big battery is a huge chunk of change and at close to 70 years old I won't live long enough to recover.

        The dewalt uses the inverter to charge when it’s not powering the load. But the dewalt needs all 4 batteries to operate. Weakest battery and it’s all dead. Ryobi you can swap on the fly, can run at reduced output with just 1 battery. Plus it’s WiFi connected and the app lets you see and do lots of things.

          Looks like it's a one day deal, ends in 17 hours.

          I noticed the Ryobi 40v mower is also on sale. And it says it's made in the USA (with global materials). First time I've seen that for ANY Ryobi product.

          The international shipping might have a silver lining. If the end result is it's cheaper and faster to build stuff here than it is to wait for months for ships to get unloaded and miss out on sales, more jobs may be coming to the USA in the future.

            Looks like back in 2020 TTI built a 1 million sq ft manufacturing plant near there US headquarters in Anderson County SC in which houses Ryobi mower assembly plant.
