In the scheme of things, Ryobi are a well respected power tool manufacturer, sitting somewhere level with DeWalt and Bosch. Ryobi offer great value for money, more than reasonable reliability, and with their One+ system, a collection of power tools that can all be run off the same batteries.
The LCDI18022 18v Cordless hammer drill could be considered a starter pack - it comes with two 1.4ah Li-Ion batteries and the proper charger, so it gives you a good base to build up your cordless powertool collection.
The Ryobi One Plus system offers a startling range of options. There's standard and compact drill drivers, impact drivers, an angle grinder, jigsaw, caulking gun, spray gun, tile saw and SDS drill, with more tools becoming available all the time.
Lets get back to the specification of this drill though, so you can gauge if its going to be suitable for the type of work you do in your trade or at home.
The LCDI18022 can be used for drilling, hammer-drilling or as a driver. It has a 13mm keyless chuck, kicks out a maximum torque of 49nm, which is variable using the dial behind the chuck. It has variable speed on the trigger, and a high and low setting on the top of the body.
Coupled with the two included lithium ion batteries, which offer high power, low weight, and no memory effect, this Ryobi cordless drill is a very tempting offer indeed.
