Ryobi fans, there's a deal goin' on.

As mentioned on another site: 4Ah Battery (2 pack) for $99+ FREE tool and free shipping

Some of the free tools are already OOS, but depending on what you're looking for it could be good deal.

I'd like to have got the circular saw.

Maybe next time.

The saw is a 5.5", won't even go through a 2x4 in a single pass. I know, I have it. Good for plywood, not much else

I think there is a brushless, cordless Ryobi 7” circ saw.

That deal is really, really tempting.

Edit: here’s the saw in question. Not part of this promotion (which actually runs until 8/2).

Does anyone have the Ryobi leaf blower? Hard to believe it would be strong enough to be useful on 18V. A few other ones are tempting tho - 22” trimmer, 2-pack of portable work lights, maybe the Dremel (-like) thingy, or an angle grinder- never used one, but there have been times...

I’ve already got the tire inflator (which is a lot more convenient than firing up my air compressor) and the jig saw, both of which work well.

Thanks. My Batteries were getting a little long in the tooth.
I went for the Jig Saw.

I have the circular Saw. I know I've cut a 2x4, I think I did it in a single pass…

I've got that inflator.

I just used it a couple of days ago, and it developed a horrible screeching, that sounds like plastic gears slipping.

The warranty may still be good as I got it on the last Ryobi Days at HD.

I'm tempted to get it again, as I could use the batteries and extra charger, and that inflator is really handy, more convenient than another that runs off the car's 12V socket.

That 7 1/4" saw is nice, but far more than I need, as a 2x4 is more than I'll need to cut, in one pass.

I got the jig saw last time.

The LED flashlight (not area lights) attachment is handy as well, from the last deal.

The rotary grinder might be worthwhile too.

I have one of the Craftsman NexTec 'Dremels" but the 12V batteries are scarce.

Seems to me that the 3rd battery option (also 4 amp) might be a great deal if you need to stock up on batteries.

Also harshing that circular saw Buzz. Heh. It's kind of a joke, but maybe if you put a Diablo blade on, it would be better.

I ended up doing the deal, but the only tool that was still available that made sense was the hedge trimmer. I would have liked a pole saw, but it wasn't listed as part of the deal, so would have opted for the leaf blower, but that was out of stock.

What I'm wondering is if I could return the hedge trimmer unopened, and exchange it for a pole saw (same price). I guess I can wait and try, but curious if anyone has done something like that on one of the Ryobi Deals things.

The max depth on the 5 1/2" Ryobi is supposed to be 1 9/16" so it should cut through a 2x4.

We have the blower/sweeper. Ryobi calls it Sweeper because it's not strong enough to blow leaves out of grass. It works perfectly fine for blowing/sweeping leaves and light debris off of hard surfaces: patios, decks, sidewalks, carports and driveways. Son actually uses it to blow down his JD round blower when down when done with a day of baling.

These Ryobi Days get worse every year with what they offer.

Ryobi has nearly priced themselves up with the big boys, DeWalt, Makita but not quite Milwaukee. Saw a DeWalt brushless drill, charger and two batteries a few days ago for $120. They have a huge fanboy following on Facebook. People are grabbing up the new clip on fan like it's a 2x4 for $2. One guy actually saw two guys pushing and shoving while trying to get the last 15 or so fans they had left just yesterday at Home Depot.

They had some killer deals back in 2018 and 2019. Now this was a deal, I bought this in early Nov. 2019, that's the 7 1/4" brushless circular saw and the benchtop flex shaft rotary tool and the battery kit for $99 plus tax. They haven't had deals this good since then.

Excuse me the DeWalt drill/driver deal is $94, killer deal. Smaller capacity batteries but still a killer deal and it's still going on.
