The Latest and Greatest from Ryobi

RYOBI now has the BTS20—a lightweight contractor's saw that, when stood on end, takes up only a couple square feet of valuable floorspace. This 91-pound, 10" portable table saw features a 27" rip capacity and folding leg stand with wheels. This saw has a maximum depth of 3-5/8" at 90 degrees and 2-1/2" at 45 degrees. It's driven by a powerful 15 amp, 115-volt universal direct-drive motor that runs at 4800 RPM. Its dust collection port can be connected to a 2-1/4" vacuum hose to keep the work area clean. This saw is available at Home Depot for under $250


New from Ryobi, 'The Works' Combo kit—eight 18-volt cordless tools that fit nicely into a roll-around duffel bag. It includes: a jigsaw, a chain saw (two new 18-volt additions to the Ryobi family), a drill/driver, flashlight, circular saw with detachable guide, a wet/dry hand vac, reciprocating saw, and a 50-foot electronic sonic measuring tool, along with a comprehensive 41-piece blade/bit/file accessory set. And it all fits into the duffel bag with plenty of room for plans, hand tools and materials.

'The Works' combo kit (model # CK818K2) is now available at The Home Depot and retails for $299.

The new Ryobi 3-base router combo kit makes one router just the right tool for any routing task. It has a 2 Peak HP motor and 1/2-inch collet, and comes with fixed, plunge, and D-handle bases. It features motor SoftStart™, which ensures a smooth start every time and electronically-controlled variable speeds, from 15,000 up to 25,000 RPM. The ergonomically-shaped handles provide more control with less fatigue for the user. It has a micro-adjustment ring with zero reset for more accurate depth of cut adjustments on the fixed and D-handle bases.
