    How do you pronounce Ryobi? I always pronounced it Rie oe bee. I heard a commercial the other day and they pronounced it Ree oe bee. Which is correct and how do you say it?

    I heard the same thing yesterday But I never knew that is how it is pronounced . That’s a first for me 🙂

    You show up with Ryobi on a job site and you’re going to at least get snickered at. You go around pronouncing it as the Japanese do, around here, and guys are going to start referring to you as “that pompous ___”.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Dirty would say it’s wrong.

    No I wouldn’t

    In our country we do not say it the same way they do in the country of origin.

    Honestly I do not know how to pronounce “Ryobi”. I try not to use bad words. Instead, I like to say things like “Bosch”, “Fein”, “Milwaukee”, and “DeWalt”…:-)

    Ryobi and Milwaukee are both owned by TTI and my money says they come out of the same plant in China…. Just saying,,,,,,

    have they always been owned together? It seems ryobi is trying to make a huge image change to appeal to a wider spectrum of users.

    Unfortunatelly you are 100% correct! All their cordless tools come from the same TTI plant. The brands are Craftsman, Ryobi, Milwaukee and Ridgid. Not sure about their corded Milwaukee tools. I still have some US-made corded milwaukee tools. They just refuse to die…

    I think TTI Industries bought these brands around 2006. They started with cordless tools and later moved on to corded. Originally, TTI was manufacturing everything for Ridgid, which was a decent-quality brand in my opinion. I still have some Ridgid tools, and they are still going strong…

    LOL. Agree 100% on the piece of junk statement. The only lower quality brand when it comes to cordless tools is Craftsman these days. It it a piece of junk raised to the power of two.

    No, Rice TTI has been on a buying spree for the last 15 or 20 years. Ryobi is a good Japanese brand and TTI only bought their export division. So Ryobi in Japan is still a Japanese brand and not TTI. At some point they bought Milwaukee and sent all the American jobs over to China. HD has them build most of the Ridgid power tools. TTI has resenty bought Hart hammers. They own Knaack job boxes and dirt devil vacuums along with a list of others.

    Have you ever used the tools? I have and don’t see your point. I know some good carpenters that use the Ryobi tools.

    No argument there. They say it’s not the tool that makes great things, it’s the skill behind the tool!

    Now how the hell is a thread of this nature getting so much mileage?

    I saw a young lady in Costco today giving out samples She was from Osaka Japan and her name tag had Kokoro on it. I said hi Kokolo, how do you say your name and she said you said it it right. Even it is in their roman letters of their name they don’t say the r sound.

    Point taken. I know I learned a lot of Chinese pronounciation oddities being around some Chinese people over the years.

    Yes I have used Ryobi in the past. Made that mistake once…will not do that again. I think it is a matter of personal preference. And I prefer not to use Ryobi.

    I have a little Ryobi chop saw, like the one that Moze posted pictures of, but mine is corded. It works fine and I have no problems with it.
