I have had many opportunities to use this drill to access tight quarters and the flexibility afforded by the rotating base makes it easy to use in places where my normal drill won't work. It has a lot of torque and I have been very happy with the battery life (although I do have two batteries that I keep in rotation.) There a few things you should be aware of: 1-it can be quite difficult to apply downward pressure on the bits in tight places, so although this right angle drill will get you in there, sometimes you need a third hand to apply pressure behind the drill head to get good penetration; 2-invest in some short bits when you buy this, as many times the normal length drill bit will cause you to not have enough space; and 3- there is no clutch on this drill, so driving screws is a bit tricky: it has a lot of torque and it is extremely difficult to moderate drill speed with the trigger. I have nearly stripped many screws and once even stripped my phillips driver.

Out of all the Ryobi tools I own and use -- two drills/drivers, two saws, two vacs, stapler and two lights -- the right angle / close quarters drill gets the most use. Probably because this is the one tool I don't have a corded counterpart for (not for lack of want!), but also because it's finished the job in every situation.

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.

I bought this Ryobi right angle drill to replace a Makita unit that I've had for well over 10 years.

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.

I have used this drill a number of times going through studs in the basement and in walls in order to drill for electrical wire installation. The major gripe I have is that the chuck is very difficult to work when removing a drill bit. It does not have a key and there is not much room for 2 hands - one to hold and the other to unscrew. I have had to use pliers a number of times just to remove a bit.

This right angle drill is solid, but feels like it lacks power at times. It will get the job done, but I will be looking for something with a bit more power in the end. I'm not in a hurry, as it does the job, but I like my drills fast and powerful. This is moderate at best.
