I can pretty much guarantee that there is no common platform sharing between Stanley and Ridgid power tools.

Well if not, then there's some industrial espionage going on, because other than the color scheme, these two drills look identical.

k guys. enough bickering.


help me pick

A) RYOBI | 18V Drill and Impact Driver Kit | Home Depot Canada

B) RYOBI | 18V Lithium-Ion Drill and Impact Driver Kit | Home Depot Canada


I bought B for 79.99 today, but just opened and realized it only comes with ONE battery pack.
Should I return it and buy A? A comes with 2 battery packs!

Id stick with option B. One L-Ion battery is better imo, and pretty much all you need for around the house etc.

Option B

Unless you anticipate taking on a project where you will be actively using the drill for over an hour, the second battery will go unused.

The great thing is, both of those use Ryobi's ONE+ battery design, so the standard and Lithium batteries are fully interchangeable. You could get the first kit and buy the lithium batteries later, and all of them will work with all the ONE+ tools. My buddy started off with the six-tool kit with the standard batteries, then started adding lithium batteries... now he uses the lithium ones for the heavier tools and saves the nicads for the radio, flashlight, etc.

^ I would never buy a 14.4V as an Impact. It's useless.

Yes, that's their website and flyer price, but the prices I have is Langley in-store special. I went to the Abbotsford and Coquitlam stores later and the next day, they were either sold out or the flyer prices.

I have a Snap-on 14.4V 3/8 impact and it works well as it is smaller and lighter still capable of 230ft-lbs.

Father's day is next month and most store put tools on sale.

Rona has dewalt on sale right now and if you wait for the weekends they have either scratch cards for savings, 15% off or 15% back in gift cards.

I bought set A on impulse. I think I'm going to return it though. I use a power drill in the condo maybe once every 3-4 months. I've never use an impact drill before in my life. If I ever need to use a drill I'll just borrow one or buy a basic corded drill.

Hammer drill is for drilling concrete. I bought one, and never use it. Handy to have for when I have to drill concrete...but it rarely comes up(for me).

+1. Impact driver is for things like loosening stuck bolts, or zapping your lugnuts on tight without torquing your arm out of its socket.

Hammer drill just adds the hammer action for drilling concrete, masonry, etc. Small hammer drills like this are good for drilling smaller holes up to 3/8" or so for anchor plugs, Tapcon screws, running small wires through... anything bigger, or for going all the way through thick walls or blocks, you want a good SDS drill like a Hilti.

It may not have enough torque to break badly frozen bolts free, but it's enough to speed up removing lug nuts, most bolts and is a lot quicker and easier than a ratchet.

Aside from that, cordless impact wrenches like these are primarily designed for construction applications where they're used on lag bolts and such.

^its not useless. It really depends what you use it for

to be honest, there were times where i wish i could trade my 18v for a 14.4v cordless.... when your holding it in your hand literally most of the 8 hour work day, shit gets tiring cuz of the extra weight
