I entered the contest to try to win this stapler and gained 10 additional entries by posting the giveaway here on David’s DIY. No other compensation of any form was received.
I do have several of the Ryobi One+ tools myself. I have the Drill/Driver, Circular Saw and the Flashlight along with a One+ Lithium battery and charger. The drill replaced an ancient 9.6 volt Makita drill that had worked reliably for about 24 years, but is not holding a charge (4th replacement battery) and just doesn’t have the torque needed to drive larger screws anymore. The Ryobi drill/driver has good balance, controls are easy to use and change while holding and it has a ton of torque. The battery lasts a really long time, I’m not sure how many holes I could drill or screws I could drive, but I think I would get tired before the battery ran out.
The Ryobi cordless One+ Circular Saw is really excellent to use. Since it is new, the blade is extremely sharp, but it also has a narrow kerf, so you’re removing less material, thus making it quicker and easier to make your cut. I’ve only used it a few times (sawing inside is frowned upon by my fiancé and it’s too cold to cut outside most of the time), but when I have, it cut through the board like a hot knife through butter. I’m really happy the kit I got had the cordless circular saw in it.
The Ryobi One+ flashlight wasn’t included in the original kit I bought, but I got it afterwards. It’s the one flashlight that we use all the time now. This flashlight is extremely bright and the handle is just right to hang on to while working on something. The head also rotates to point the light beam at the best angle to really light up what you’re working on.
