and its tools

25+ Reasons To Watch Ryobi Tools ~ Editorial

4 min read

What I found fascinating is that RYOBI is constantly looking to test and improve its battery cells and their performance.

They achieve this by doing their testing in house, performing runtime, life cycle, and load testing
in all sorts of simulated environments.

They also have a brand-new line this year:

* RYOBI 18V ONE+ High-Performance batteries

it was great to learn about the passion and technological advances that the battery team puts into developing these products.

Interesting Factoid:
RYOBI is now in its 25th year of 18V cordless tools.

RYOBI prides itself on being backward compatible, meaning the old Ni-Cad batteries you bought in the ’90s can still operate in the new 18V One+ Tools and the new lithium-ion batteries can still operate in the old blue tools.

One thing evident to me was : the passion everyone we encountered had, for their role and their contributions, to the process.

From the designers to the battery lab engineers to those who do tooling and modeling, everyone was eager to discuss their piece of the business and how it benefits the entire cause.

We got a chance to out the NEW 25+ ONE+ tools being released. The new Flooring Saw and the Right Angle Die Grinder stole the show for us. The new Impact Wrench and extended reach ratchets were also front runners as RYOBI makes its push into the automotive space.

The RYOBI product team is laser-focused on their end-user, spending time on job sites, automotive shops, and shade-tree mechanics to identify gaps in the market where they can provide innovative solutions and improve upon existing tools.

RYOBI has really stepped up their game with their recent launches, they seem to have shaken off some dust and injected new life into their company by expanding this ONE+ lineup.

I’m talking about stuff like:
* Cool NEW lighting, automotive tools
* Rotary tools, and glue guns.

We were also able to get hands-on with some of the newer products from their outdoor line, and trust me, they did not disappoint.

I was super impressed with the 40V HP Brushless Whisper Series Blower, It’s quiet and packed with power at 730CFM! RYOBI is on to something with their noise reduction technology working intentionally to reduce noise and pitch out of their tools. We visited their anechoic chamber,
and was impressed with the testing technology they used to determine and reduce noise in their tools.

They plan on expanding the Whisper Series family and reducing noise from other tools as well.
RYOBI’s introduction of 40V has catapulted them forward with products that not only deliver gas-like power but surpass the power of gas.

One of the most impressive experiences of the day was the 40V HP Brushless Mowers launched this year. The massive improvements from their previous models are apparent

This 40V HP 21” Mower has two steel-cut blades, and an awesome self-propelled mechanism that you adjust with your thumbs while mowing.

My favorite part of this mower was the fold-down handle that allows you to easily store this mower vertically up against a wall if you are tight on space. This is a premium mower that will retail at $599.

Something you may not know is that Just this year, RYOBI began assembling two of its walk-behind lawnmowers right on its campus in Anderson, South Carolina,… the first cordless lawn mower to do so in the United States.

Steve Holland the VP of Product Development personally walked us through a production line,
and explained that RYOBI had to bring in hundreds of additional jobs to the U.S.

In addition to the mowers, we also played with the RYOBIs 40V 18-inch chainsaw, the carbon fiber string trimmer.

Conversations with members of the leadership team gave me the sense of collaboration from the executive leadership to the product teams, as well as, everyone in between that make the proverbial GREEN wheel turn.

I was really PROUD to see my friend, Bobby Shaw, recently become president and take the helm of this endeavor.

Look guys, anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm …. Bobby, well he’s steering right into the perfect "RYOBI storm," and kicking-ass doing it! Every conversation I had with Bobby was thinking and talking about solving problems and improving products… Guys… that’s leadership!
His effective leadership – putting first things first, has been followed by the discipline of carrying it out!

It was impressive! And I’m glad I got to see it 1st hand.It really was fascinating to see the true change in RYOBI, compared to where they were even just a few years ago.

They clearly LEANED hard into pushing the reset button, refocusing on the customer’s needs, and staying committed to the same 18V ONE+ battery platform.
