    LOL, but the lime green Ryobis are! HA HA HA

    Guess nobody “wants” the Ryobi stuff?

    But their tools have such interesting features! I have a friend who bought their 7 1/4″ sliding mitre saw – only mitre saw I’ve ever seen that can cut curves in the trim. How can you not want a feature like that! /s

    Lol , actually they do have some decent tools , I guess they have no choice to make better tools with all the competition in the homeowners market.

    Actually since last year all the new tools Ryobi has introduced have gotten great ratings. The testers like them. They admit that Ryobi is best for DIYers for “occasional” use but they have all the features of Bosch, Milwaukee, or Makita without the ability to stand up to every day use without the big price tag.

    I wouldn’t say that! I wouldn’t mine some of there tools. People stealing the brands as it worth more money and they make more money.

    True , I’ve been seeing lots of tool ambassadors or pros getting lots of tools from Ryobi to test , and yes they said they really are better than the early years from Ryobi , this is all from IG
    That plus I have a few things from them , and in all honesty they have been great ,

    About stealing the boxes from Milwaukee and Makita , I thought they had the special magnetic strip or something like that so when you go through the door that alarm sounds 🤷‍♂️

    It’s so poorly built that it will occasionally cut a slightly curved line.

    I was at the Home Depot today, and the social distance signs and single queue lines are gone.

    Waiting at one of the lines to get checked out (I could not use self check out because I have custom cut wires by the foot that has a special order sheet that requires manual entry), the cashier in front of me was really slow. She was helping a customer but you can tell she was scanning the items S L O W L Y…and when she was done she looked at her phone, then she went to get a drink, basically every three to four customers other cashiers processed she handled one. My line got longer and longer and the cashier looked at me and said “I can’t help you go to another line I am not supposed to be at this station” I waited for close to ten minutes, so I said to her I was told by the other cashier to line up here and now you tell me to go somewhere else. I left the line anyway, the other cashier saw this and helped me, she said the other cashier probably recognize me since I go there a lot and know she will not be able to sell me a HD credit card. Can you believe that?

    Glad someone else helped you out

    That’s the kind of employee that should get fired in my opinion, there’s no way a manager that’s there all the time hasn’t noticed that.
