Ryobi 18V 6 PC. LITHIUM+™ Ultimate Combo Kit Review

by Wren on December 20, 2012

I have always been into Do It Yourself type projects. I feel a sense of completion and I love being able to show things I have made. We have been looking at homes to buy and each one have seemed like a lot of work to get where we want it to be. I love doing things myself and making things look beautiful, in my taste of course, but I lack many of the tools necessary to take on a project of this size. It makes finding a home very difficult.

With Ryobi 18V PC. Lithium+ Ultimate Combo Kit, I no longer feel that buying a house that needs some work would be that much of a problem anymore! In fact once receiving this in the mail I was able to help in replacing my wall oven. It was a breeze! Each piece is light weight and easy for even my smaller hands to function. I loved that it has a gauge on it, to let you know if your battery is low. One great thing is even when the battery is low it only takes a little over an hour to have it fully charged and ready to go again!

I find there are so many features that not many other brands have, even including an awesome LED light so you can see what your working on even better! I found the magnetic strip to put your screws on as you are working to be mighty handy. I have not seen any other brands bring to the table as much as Ryobi has!
