Ryobi 12-Volt Auto Hammer
Last week, ToolGuyd had a nice find with the new Ryobi 12-Volt Auto Hammer. By the numbers, the tool is nearly identical to the Craftsman version: 3,600 hits per minute, magnetic head, both under 2lbs. Also, like the Craftsman, the Ryobi comes with only one battery and a canvas carrying case).
We tested out the Craftsman and had some success with it, even though it's not going to replace your traditional hammer. Our Tool Snob review is here, and we also wrote about it for Popular Mechanics, even going to far as to smash our thumb with it.
Oh yeah, one difference between the tools is that the Ryobi is $89, making it $10 cheaper than the Craftsman.

nice little tool, I drove 1 nail at a Home Depot display station. Tool was extra loud due to the acoustics of the Depot, so I moved on from the demo, I kinda felt like I was making a scene in an empty depot late night, mid week. I would probably get something like this if it was in the One line, but I'm not getting another battery group to invest in.
