Invaluable for drilling holes in closely spaced studs and joists, I've driven up to 3" hole saws with it. While those large cuts test the limits and battery capacity of this tool, I haven't yet had to break down and buy a corded version.
At another review has pointed out, the chuck is difficult to operate when tight. I simply grab the chuck (wearing gloves) and squeeze the trigger, and it loosens up every time. The bigger problem is perhaps the chuck loosening up, though I can use a similar "grip and squeeze" method to tighten it securely.
The base / battery holder rotates to provide additional room where it's needed for working in really confined spaces. Battery run-time seems generally on par with the other Ryobi drills I own.
My MAJOR complaint with this tool is its vent ports. The drill runs ridiculously hot during extended use (really, just running a hole saw for a few minutes), so hot I'm surprised it doesn't soften the plastic. Ryobi placed the cooling ports right at the hand grip location, where palm & fingers NEED to be wrapped to control the trigger. And even wearing nitrile work gloves, the drill generates so much heat that I need to stop and let everything -- drill, gloves, hands -- cool down between operations. Their green version of this drill appears to have addressed this concern by utilizing a different trigger / vent arrangement, but I don't have any actual use with that tool to know if it's an effective change.Read more ›
The Makita only had one speed - fast, so it was pretty worthless for driving screws. This Ryobi is an improvement because it is variable speed, but it would definitely be better if it had a fast/slow speed switch. You can feather the speed output by lightly squeezing the upper section of the switch, but you have to be very careful or you'll strip your screw.
The rotating battery pack is a nice feature.
