Has Ryobi hijacked DeWalt’s yellow? I just saw a Home Depot commercial and all the Ryobi tools are DeWalt yellow. Come to think of it the yellow is getting around – I saw some phones at Sam’s club in DeWalt yellow.

Pretty soon Dewalt yellow will be Hitachi Green.

They all do that. Don’t they?

Wait, isn’t DeWalt owned by Black & Decker now? That should help us predict what color is coming next. Let’s see, B&D tools are black … and red … and green … oh, never mind.

I happened to see the new Ryobi cordless tools at HD the other day. I don’t remember the exact color other than it is kinda bright and florescent. Maybe a yellowish/green? Definitely eye catching, if not memorable.

yes, the new Ryobi color is definately more of a neon lime green then the Dewalt yellow.
