Ryobi has become increasingly popular in the past 10 years, and you may even be considering buying a tool or two of theirs for your collection. But why would you buy from the Ryobi range, rather than from DeWalt or Makita, for example? We set out to answer this all-important question.
Many users question Ryobi’s overall tool quality and power, comparing them to brands such as DeWalt and Makita which are heavily trade focused. However, Ryobi don’t position themselves to be in direct competition with these companies. They classify themselves as a DIY brand, and their tools are tailored as such.
If you consider this, Ryobi’s products more than stand up to what they’re needed for. In some cases, their tools even outperform some of the trade-oriented brands, despite costing far less. We’ve previously covered Ryobi’s range of air-strike nail guns and how many consumers preferred it to similar offerings from DeWalt and Milwaukee.
Ryobi has always been a hugely innovative brand when it comes to making cordless tools. As of 2022, there are over 250 tools in the One+ range, far more than other established power tool brands.
Being a more DIY-oriented brand, Ryobi often expands their scope beyond generic power tools. Their gardening range is a key area where the choice of tools has increased. The range is extensive and unrivalled, from basic lawnmowers and hedge-trimmers to more niche pruning saws and secateurs. You can also find tools and gadgets for cleaning, crafting, camping, and automotive applications.
Being DIY-oriented also allows Ryobi to keep costs down when manufacturing their tools. Trade tools need to withstand the wear and tear of everyday, constant usage, whereas Ryobi tools aren’t intended to be under continuous strain. They’re also less likely to need the torque required for tough jobs, meaning they can use cost-effective parts and materials in the production process.
With a Badaptor, you can convert the 18V batteries you already own to work with DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee or Ryobi 18V tools.
This means that you can use your preferred battery system with a different brand of tool, removing the cost of a new battery system, and better utilising your battery packs that otherwise may barely see the light of day.
