Home Depot sent us the Ryobi 18-Volt One+ Brushless 3-Speed Impact Driver Model P238 to review, and the timing could not have been better. My neighbour bought this last year when it was on sale for around 89 and when I was helping him install an exterior door, I got to try it, it is good for occasional use at best. I so wish I would have known this years ago when I bought my first drill. A brushless motor can offer a longer motor life, more speed, more torque and more durability when compared to a brushed motor. People can argue until they blue in the face whether yellow, red, green or orange is better, but for sheer value, Ridgid wins hands down. This makes it much easier inserting and changing bits with a single hand. I personally don't have any experience with Dewalt or Makita so I can't comment on them.
While most place their speed selector switch on the base of the tool, Ryobi opted to design it on the back of the impact. Unlike its predecessor, the Ryobi P237 is a three speed impact driver with up to 1,800 in-lbs of torque. The biggest difference between the Ryobi P237 and the P236 is the speed mode selector switch in the rear. Rated 1 out of 5 by Helloman68 from Wow whats up with the high ratings! This is a measure not used for drills. The auto-load chuck makes one-hand bit changes easy and quick.

The Ryobi impact driver burned through that project so fast I had plenty of time and battery left for other projects. There's nothing wrong with the Ryobi. The Ryobi tools i own have never let me down, the only tool that failed was a reciprecating saw that had a heavy beam fall on it which damaged the speed controls,even with the damage it continued to work at max speed only for a few months and i use this saw very hard core cutting beams,steel rebar and general demolition on a very frequent basis. Rated 3 out of 5 by bunsdad11 from Good Value I bought this because it was on sale and I am glad I bought the large battery pack set with it.
So far I like it but the batteries with the set. Well, here's a few features that will make this the best choice for your budget and needs.

Also the force to pull the trigger is quite his and if your hand ins't in the optimal position the guard at the bottom of the trigger will not let you depress it all the way. However, these specs are legit Pro-level, with torque exceeding many of the premium Pro brands out there. On the Ryobi P237, the switch in the rear allows toggling between low, medium and high speed settings whereas the P236 is single speed only.
The impact driver has a nice rubber over-molded grip that also helps not only with comfort, but gripping the tool, even with gloves. Almost 1,000 customers have rated this kit 4. They offer such a wide variety of products for their line. They offer a wide range of runtime, power, and performance for the various tools Ryobi has.

These are big improvements over the older model. Not everyone needs all the power of a big tool. They hold a charge longer and are almost half the weight of those Ni-Cd batteries, which makes them useful for tight spots where you really need the power. Is it the most power driver out there? Short of Festool and maybe some others all the cordless stuff is Made in the very similar overseas factories and often use the same battery parts inside. In fact, we use them quite often on our jobs — we regard them as having a lot of bang for the buck.
The drills of which i own several have also lasted years on the jobsite with heavy use, I suggest buying the lithium batteries as the standard one lasted about a year of heavy use before the batteries were shot. Once you eject one bit from the spring-loaded chuck, you push the next one in without having to pull out on the collet. More recently, however, Ryobi tools have stepped up the game a bit, and some can certainly be considered for professional use. It definitely swung for the fences and determined it wants to run with the Pro pack. Apr 15th, 2019 4:48 pm Properly maintained Li-ion batteries should last a long time.
