Ryobi P802 Review
Ryobi P802 Strengths & Weaknesses:
| ||75 C||C||B||C||C||C||Price|
|Design|| ||Acceptable Design - While this driver has one or more design features that received a C rating, it can still be a good choice if that area is not critical to your particular needs.|
|Power|| ||Below Average Power - Delivers up to 1200 in-lbs of torque, about 15% less than the class average. Power can sometimes be traded for weight or cost.|
|Speed|| ||Below Average Speed - Generates up to 2400 RPM, about 6% slower than the average impact driver. The Ryobi P802 ranks in the bottom 33% of its class for speed.|
|Weight|| ||Heavier Than Average - Weighs 4.6 lbs, about 27% heavier than the class average. Heavier drivers are often more durable, but you should consider operator fatgue.|
|Battery|| ||Below Average Run-Time - Battery endurance is adequate for many work applications, but is 32% less than the class average. Uses NiCd batteries with a charge rating of 1.5 Ah.|
|Impact|| ||Below Average Impact Rate - Generates 3050 IPM of maximum impact blows, about 2% less than the average impact driver.|
|User Reviews||√||Highly Satisfied Users - Rated 4.4 of 5 stars by 5 users. Most owners are very satisfied with the performance and value of this impact driver and would recommend it to others.|
|Power Ratio|| ||Below Average Power Ratio - Power-to-Weight ratio is 32% below average and ranks in the bottom 1% of its class. P/W is a good indicator of driver efficiency.|
|Gearbox|| ||Nylon Gears - Transmission includes at least some nylon gears that may need replacing after years of extended use. A nylon gearbox helps reduce driver weight.|
|Motor Brushes|| ||No External Access - The motor brushes can only be accessed internally by taking the driver apart. While not a common problem, external access makes the replacement job much easier.|
|Warranty||√||Longer Warranty - Backed by Ryobi's limited 3-year warranty. This provides extra protection against potential design defects or premature part failure.|
|Charger|| ||Standard Charge Time - The Ryobi P802 battery charger takes 60 minutes to recharge a battery. Longer charge times are not a big issue if you always have a battery back-up.|
|Belt Hook|| ||No Belt Hook - Does not include this convenient feature that frees-up both your hands to perform other tasks in-between driving.|
|Work Light|| ||No Work Light - Does not include an integrated work light. This is a great feature that is now being incorporated into many of the new cordless drivers.|
|Fuel Gauge|| ||No Fuel Gauge - Does not come equipped with a handy battery charge indicator that allows you to glance at your driver and check the battery life while you're working.|
