    I am slowly turning into a RYOBI fan and this was my latest addition.

    Not sure how long it will hold up to use, but this was on sale at Home Depot for $99 bucks. It's relatively small at 3 gallons, but is pretty compact and should store easily on a shelf. Comes with a 4 Ah battery and a charger. I got it home and tried it out with one of my 2 Ah batteries and am pretty impressed. Hopefully no more dragging out 2 extension cords to get to the back of the driveway. Felt like this was a smokin' deal at $99 with battery and thought I'd post up for any other RYOBI fans.

    Me too. I have the 1/2 impact, a work light and a fan all work good. They just came out with a 3/8 gun i want.

    I also have the dust buster style vac, not recommended.

    I'm turning into a fan too. Last year I bought a few of their tools, and they still work great. Didn't know I needed this shop vac till I saw this. Thanks for posting!

    I bought my first Ryobi battery tools (it was a kit with screw guns, jig saw, circular saw, vac (worthless), chain saw) back in '06. Since then I've added a half inch impact wrench, hedge trimmer and finish nailer. The batteries all interchange except for the hedge trimmer.

    My first was an 18v drill to replace my corded. Then came a 18v weed eater since I already had the batteries, then was the super "cheapie" leaf blower, which is actually my favorite as it's easy to grab and blow the leaves/debris out of the garage, then I saw the shop vac. - So far so good with all of them, the weed eater only gets about 1/2 way thru before it shuts down from thermal overload, then I go back to mowing and after it cools down, I can get the other 1/2. ( I thought it was battery related and bought a 6 Ah, but after researching, it turns out quite a few others had similar issues with my model ).

    Everything I got has a 40V battery except the bug sprayer. It's 18V. I guess the vac will be the same battery as the sprayer? Looks the same

    It's amazing how easy that blower is to use. Pretty strong too. I was impressed.

    Both impacts work fantastic and the 3/8" will take lug nuts off. My wife got me the 18V Compressor for X-mas and that little sucker works pretty good. My son got me the 1/8" 18V die grinder and it work very well also, does not use much battery power.

    Just bought these this week, knuckeldragger sent me a ryobi tool too! its up in my cabinet. Great for my motorcycle work. I am a massive ryobi fan, had nothing break and if it ever does, its cheap enough to just replace if its outside of warranty. I am just a consumer/DIY guy though. but ive put my stuff through a lot.

    Honestly, the weirdest two favorites of mine are. The heat gun + hot glue gun. No longer being tethered to a wire is awesome for vinyl wrapping/and repairing things I break lol. the hot gun is amazing though.

    If any of you are acquiring more than a couple batteries in the 18v series, buy the 6 supercharger. It charges/maintains and keeps them healthy. Haven't had a single issue with batteries, I just leave them on that charger 24/7 for the last 4 years almost. not a single lick of issue
