Bought one of these kits today  :cup:

Up to 13mm drill bit ( which i tested and it drill with it no dramas at all).

Indicator button on the batteries makes it very easy to see what charge is left  :cup:

Very happy with it in the time i have used it  :cheers:

I have both that drill and the impact driver. Been abusing them on and off with diy use over the past 6-7yrs with no issues other than one of my chargers stopped working but returned it to the big green shed and replaced it under warranty.

I got the drill and impact driver set for my birthday last week.
https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-18v-one-2-piece-core-kit_p0059997

It got a bit of use hanging some doors at the fire shed, but on Saturday I went out to a farm and collected a stack of logs for firewood.

I quickly got sick of sawing the logs on the ground, so out came the mitre saw, the Ryobi set and I turned some old veranda joists I was donated into a log saw horse.

It turned out pretty good, considering that it cost close to $0 and only used a handful of recycled roofing screws. I did kill the mitre saw blade by finding a nail on my 3rd last cut though.

The 20+ year old hardwood is soaking up the linseed oil like a sponge

Washed & polished the work ute,
Wired in from the second battey(deep cycle) an anderson plug to charge the Makita batteries from the 12v to 18v charger.
Sometimes on job site I don't have access to 240.

We had one like that when I was a kid, to cut wood for the old wood stove. Only trouble was, it was my brother's and my job to cut the wood by hand, using a bow saw. Still got the scars on my left hand from when the saw would slip sometimes when starting the cut.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

I did a bit more work to my old Lathe on the weekend, well not the lathe so much but the bench and made some tooling for it.

Not a virus, not a re-install, not a format, not an issue since 2011..once you go mac you never go back
