I had purchased several Ryobi products in past years and have had trouble with the quality and performance of pretty much everything that with the Ryobi name on it. I avoid them like the plague now. I have never been sorry that I paid more for a good tool, but have been sorry many times that I purchased cheap tools. What's sad is that Home Depot pushes these inferior products at the expense of their reputation. As they say BUYER BEWARE.
