The cordless drill is probably the most-used power tool in any home. It certainly is in mine. It’s easy to just grab a screwdriver, but it’s nice to have a drill for extra power when you need it!
You might not need a cordless drill with a hammer mode, but boy does it come in handy when you need to drill into concrete or other hard surfaces.
I’ve owned the Ryobi P251 Brushless Hammer Drill for a few years and I’d like to share my experience in using it.

My Ryobi P251 Hammer Drill Experience
As I mentioned, I’ve owned this drill for a few years now and it has performed flawlessly. I’ve used all three modes – Drill, Drive, Hammer – and the Ryobi P251 hammer drill has powered through every surface with ease.
This drill is big and bulky, especially when you add a large size battery to it. It feels great in my hand though; the drill doesn’t tire it out and is great for repeated use. This is a great drill and, like most Ryobi tools, retails at a great price.
The Ryobi P251 hammer drill is a great choice for DIYers and homeowners looking add an exceptional drill to their workshop.
