"My old 18v cordless hammer drill had just died so looking for new one when spotted this twin pack on offer by Screwfix. Reviews seemed good & this proved to be true. Powerful & fairly light the hammer drill has coped well with everything I have thrown at it, it is also very comfortable to hold. The little driver pack is also great for when you just need a screwdriver or in a smaller space. I paid £90 for this twin pack which was less than my old 18v hammer drill cost 10 years ago.... My only gripe is that the hammer drill had no case, so have had to spend £15 getting one from Screwfix, but still give it 5 stars."
"I originally bought one of these drills 7 years ago when I was refurbishing a room in my guest house. and it worked flawlessly for years.
It eventually gave up the ghost in the middle of refurbishing our bar area. After a lot of ingress of plasterboard dust the gearbox jammed up.
I stripped it out, cleaned and repacked it with grease and it is back working, but for some reason the variable aspect of the drill is no longer functioning.
the only other problem was that one of the batteries would not hold a charge for long if not in use. While it was in use, it would last a lot longer than it took to charge the other battery not a big deal really.
The reliability and performance of the previous drill always meant I was always going to replace it with the same drill.
The new drill is as good as the old one except the colour. I hate the colour but as the colour is not functional I am not that bothered. By the time it gets dulled down with use I suppose i wont notice its colour any more.
I am pleased that the old batteries still fit the new one as it will then fit in with the rest of the kit I have in the range well.
It is a very robust drill/driver and and construction and performance is just as good as the old one, although it still I has issues drilling into engineering bricks, I still have to get the SDS drill out for that, but for every other job i throw at it, it works perfectly fine....
the small driver does what its supposed to do, its ideal for small jobs itis never going to drive a 4 inch screw into a couple of pieces of 3x2 but for putting screws into rawl plugs it comes into its own...
probably the best bit of kit you can add to the tool bag."
"I was fed up with my corded drill and have never owned a power screwdriver. While browsing the catalogue looking for light fittings, saw the drill and screwdriver on special offer, and added it to the basket. Very impressed with the performance of both items, on a single battery I drilled over 20 1/2 inch holes to approx 3 inches into brick. So impressed that I bought a jigsaw from the same range! That also does a very good job."
"ryobi one + superb combi drill and with the 4v screwdriver kit you have the best of for big and small jobs weather it be for the diy or anyone in the trade exelent allrounder RECONMEND TO ANY ONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT"
"The set is the quality you would expect from Ryobi. The drill is powerfull and versatile,the 'built in' brake is a must on all drills. The screwdriver however is a little low on power for regaular continued use but is ideal in the workshop or around the home when you need a handy little driver...... Brilliant all round set and its bright green so you can't lose it!!!!"
"Advert at a quick glance makes you think you are obtaining drill carrying case but this is not so. The Screwdriver kit has the carrying case and not the drill. Also all though its early days I have been experiencing problems with the Torque adjusting ring and mode selection. Hoping that some more use might free up the ring. I feel that the power is quite good and apart from the points above this may be a good drill."
"I bought this after having a previous Ryobi Combi drill replaced three times due to faulty bearings and thought I'd give the name another go. First appraisal on the drill was promising, much better than the old one - build and feel; nice to use - not too heavy and nice balance; I liked the built in spirit levels and the bit clips on the top hold the screwdriver bits in well, much better than on the previous one I had.
I had the drill a week and already the chuck was failing to grip properly whilst reversing (ie unscrewing) and before I knew it the retaining screw which holds it onto the driveshaft had sheared and the chuck unscrewed itself from the shaft. Now - for those interested, the chuck screws onto the driveshaft on a r/h thread which is fine for drilling and for screwing 'forwards,' but once you reverse the drill (ie unscrewing) the chuck naturally attempts to unscrew itself from the shaft and is only held in by a small (4mm I think) left handed screw. This screw appears to then take a lot of strain opposing the force of the unscrewing chuck and as I found out - it failed, and way too easily.
As a result I have returned it, ditched Ryobi and bought a DeWalt instead which is a shame as I was quite keen on the Ryobi stuff.
I can't say what the 4v driver was like as I never got to use it before I returned the kit...
