Best New Ryobi Tools

Ryobi 18V One+ HP Brushless 510 CFM Blower

Ryobi announced several new OPE solutions for both the 18V One+ and 40V platforms in March. Starting on the 18V side, the One+ HP Brushless 510 CFM Blower is the brand’s most powerful blower on the 18V system. As the name suggests, it offers up to 510 CFM of airflow, putting it on par with 24cc gas blowers. Better yet, this performance comes with noise levels up to 85% quieter than gas models thanks to being part of Ryobi’s Whisper Series.

  • Max airflow: 510 CFM
  • Max air speed: 130 MPH

Ryobi 40V HP Brushless Brush Cutter String Trimmer

Another OPE solution announced by Ryobi is the 40V HP Brushless Brush Cutter/String Trimmer. It has the ability to transform between a brush cutter with a 10-inch Tri-Arc blade and a string trimmer with a 15-inch cutting swath. Using the kitted 6.0Ah battery, you can expect runtimes of around 85 minutes per charge in ideal conditions. Two speed modes, as well as a variable speed trigger, also let you set your speed to the task at hand.

This upgrade will deliver more power while running cooler, as well as more runtime and a longer lifespan. Since Ryobi’s 18V One+ system now boasts over 300 products, backward compatibility is also a plus since older tools will also be able to benefit from the performance boost these batteries will provide.

Adding to this roster is the Multi-Head Screwdriver, which includes three interchangeable heads for access and control in tight spaces. It provides speeds of up to 200 RPM, so while it’s not going to be a replacement for your cordless drill, it’ll still make quick work of small fastening jobs such as hardware installation and furniture assembly where a full-sized drill would be too bulky or powerful.

The Ryobi 3.8-inch PCL201K1 drill hits a price point of under $60— and that’s including a battery and charger! While it may not have all of the bells and whistles of Ryobi’s more powerful drills, this model still fills an important space in the brand’s lineup with top speeds reaching 600 RPM. If you only need a drill a few times a year to handle small household tasks, the PCL201K1 can make quick work of drilling holes and driving screws without breaking the bank. It even made my pick for the best budget drill in the Best Ryobi Drills article!
