The cordless drill is usually the most-used power tool in any home. It certainly is in mine. It’s easy to just grab a screwdriver when you need it, but it’s nice to have a drill for extra power when you need it!
I’ve owned my RYOBI 18-Volt Brushless Cordless Hammer Drill for a few years now. It’s been a great drill; I haven’t encountered a single problem with it.

Advantages Of A Brushless Hammer Drill
This hammer drill is nice to have because in addition to the regular drill and drive options, there’s a hammer option to power through tough material like concrete and mortar. Several years ago I worked as an electrician, and owning a hammer drill was essential. Not every homeowner will need a hammer drill, but they sure are nice to have, just in case.
A brushless motor is more efficient and has other advantages over a regular brush motor such as more power, but they’re usually more expensive. Honestly, most of the tools I own have brush motors, but over time I plan to upgrade to brushless like I did here with my hammer drill.
Because this is a ONE+ tool from Ryobi, I can use any of my 18v batteries that I use for other tools.
