Funnily enough, I was given a £50 Amazon voucher from work, spent it on a Ryobi angle grinder! Was bought the Ryobi soldering iron a few weeks ago for my birthday too. I now have a lot of bright green tools!

I have a Ryobi drill and strimmer, I like that you only need on type of battery and charger for all your tools. I think it's a brilliant idea that other manufacturers need to catch on to but probably make too much money selling you separate ones for every tool.

Better not buy anything from EU, as you won't get spares after 31/10/19

Got a Ryobi impact wrench which is a good bit of kit with a 5AH battery.

Hitachi 18v Cordless drill, on my second one of these which is also good.

Think I'll go down the Ryobi route for anything else I buy in future the 'one for all' battery system makes a lot of sense.

I know its not a Ryobi which is what I would be interested in, but how do you find the cordless 4.5" grinder? Can you do a reasonable amount of work with a single battery charge?

just a heads up on Bosch cordless grinders, very battery hungry! and not torque-y enough in my opinion

I suspect they all are, ok for slicing off the odd nut or bolt, not repeated cutting of angle iron etc.

If you need one away from an easy power source they'd be ideal but Im sure for 99% of the time a mains version would be better.
