Overview

Editor's Review: A Look into Cordless Combo Kits

review date: December 1, 2005

The tools in Ryobi's cordless combo kit are light and comfortable to use, but they lack power. The drill is light enough for overhead work, and it has an excellent grip and great balance. The saw spins a 5-1/2-in. blade, which enables it to cut through 2x material but not a 1-3/4-in. LVL. This saw includes a laser-cutting guide mounted on the blade housing. The one-hour charger offers good diagnostic capability, but hot packs must be set aside to cool before being placed in the unit. The kit also includes a reciprocating saw, a light, and a wet/dry hand vacuum.
