Guest's review of Ryobi EID-100-2RE Hammer Drill

“High specs poor build quality. Bits break easily.”


written by on 26/10/2011

Looked good value for money as the specification was high but this turned out to be a false economy. The chuck started to fail on the second day of use but when I contacted Ryobi for help they said the chuck was not covered under the guarantee so I had to buy a replacement. This was to be half the price of a new machine! So I bought another type for £20. I tried to remove the old chuck but found the lock nut (left handed thread) impossible to remove as the metal was soft and it rounded. Drilled this out and held in the chuck stop button to remove the old chuck and the button snapped! DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR QUALITY AND LONGEVITY.
