A well made tool with useful features. A plus point is that in addition to the supplied attachments it also takes those made by Bosch.
Excellent Modular Tool
Luvlie Jublie - 1 year ago
As always this latest Ryobi One+ 18V Cordless Multi Tool RMT1801M is brilliant. I have purchased many Ryobi modular tools from B+Q and hope to get more to add to my large collection. This tool cuts floorboards, doors and lots more. It rotates at the head, has a light to help you see and is nice and light. Remember to have a battery for it as it's great price means you have to have your own battery. However the Ryobi batteries are excellent and power this great tool very well.
Really useful and easy to use

Excels at cutting poor at sanding
Mikec1011 - 2 years ago
I bought this tool a few months ago as a relatively inexpensive way to try an 18v multitool. I already owned (and regulary use) a Bosch 10.8v multi tool which I am still very happy with and as it turns out the two do actually compliment each other. One very obvious difference is that the Ryobi is considerably larger than the Bosch and is much more difficult to use in tight spaces. Infact I'm tight spaces I don't even take the Ryobi out the bag now. The other obvious difference is the way you power the machines up. The Bosch is controlled via an on/off switch and the speed is set with a dial. The Ryobi is controlled via a variable trigger much like a drill, this is both its best feature and it's worse depending on what you are doing. The unfortunate thing is that, had Ryobi included a "lock on button" much of the complaints I have would be void and would turn a good tool into a great tool.
* Sawing/Cutting. That variable speed trigger really does help where cutting is concerned. By having full control of the speed you are able to control the cut much more easily than the on/off dial setup and is where I personally think this tool excels.
* Power. It sounds obvious but the Ryobi is noticeably(in certain Applications) more powerful than the 10.8v tool. However when it comes to something like sanding you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.
*Runtime. I tried both machines with a 2ah battery and the Ryobi lasted significantly longer than the Bosch in every application I tested it with. I presume it's because the Ryobi doesn't need to work as hard in a like for like situation and draws less power but I don't know
*Sanding. That variable trigger is a real bind when it comes to sanding, so much so that
If you plan on doing allot of sanding I would stay clear of this tool and look elsewhere. In a very short space of time it becomes very uncomfortable to hold that trigger down all the time. The fact that you have to hold the trigger also limits the position you hold the tool to just one. I did over come this problem by using a Velcro strap to hold the trigger down but it's difficult to control the speed. When you consider that you would probably using it as a detail sander that lack of control is a real issue. To be honest forget trying to sand on anything other than full speed. It's almost impossible to use at a lower speed for any length of time.
*Size. It's BIG simple as that. Don't get me wrong it doesn't feel big in the hand and is NOT uncomfortable to use but it is cumbersome in confined spaces.
On balance it's a good tool and it's a real shame they didn't include a switch to lock it on. If your main requirements are for cutting then you won't be disappointed however if sanding /polishing is your thing I would look elsewhere.
