Ryobi P232 Impact Driver

ryobi_impact.JPGWe stumbled across this at the local Home Depot the other day. Since Ryobi is notoriously lax at updating their website (they haven't even added their 4-Volt Screwdriver yet), there's very little information available about the tool.

What we do know is that the tool is part of the 18-volt line and it has an LED and a magnetic bit holder.

We swiped the image from ebay where a guy is selling the tool claiming that it is "Rare." Um. Since we spotted it on the shelves of Home Depot, we're not so sure.

We've been pretty surprised at how slowly Ryobi has been building their lithium-ion line. After all the hub-bub and hoo-haa last year with the unveiling of the 4-piece set, there's been little activity. It's strange considering the popularity of the line and the placement at Home Depot.

Eventually, it'll be on the Home Depot website, but for now, it's on ebay.

This really is a great tool. The LED is a nice touch, and the 1500 in-lbs of torque are spot on for all sorts of applications. I had to get one off eBay, due to the fact that the Ryobi website is silent about it, as is the American HD website (yet Canada HD shows it...) Their websites truly are horrible, but the tool itself is amazing.

one of the best tools I have used, this thing will drive 4 inch deck screws all day long. If you put an adapter in it you can use it with all of your 1/4" and 1/2" sockets. you will fall in love with this thing

looks like just the 230/231 except for the ugly green color. I am surprised in this day and age, how bad Ryobi is with their website and their HD links, it's been going on for a long time, I never visit their site anymore.
