After 7 years of use and abuse my 18v Ryobi cordless drill fried on me. I know its not a top of the line drill but I liked it and I want it back. I also have several batteries and a charger all ready so I really just need the drill.

With the holidays right around the corner I don’t have the extra money right now to go buy a new one so I thought I would check here in hopes maybe one of you have this drill and are no longer using it. I think mine was the 1/2 chuck but I would be fine with the 3/8 chuck. If you have one and would like to sell it please send me PM.

If you are open to trade I have a couple really nice restored and tuned Stanley hand planes I would trade. I would only trade one plane for the drill but I have several sizes. I may have other stuff to… I just really want my drill back. I hate using the cord drill.

Thanks!

You can get the Ryobi drills for virtually nothing on ebay. It’s the
batteries that cost. I have an 18v Ryobi would give you but
it’s in storage in another state. All my Ryobi batteries died
and I went to Milwaukee.

I have checked ebay and there are some on there. I only checked the ones ending in the next few days and of those the really nice condition ones were not that far off price wise as a new one would be. The ones that were lower in price looked well used and banged up… I will continue to check ebay and I am sure one will come up soon but I still wanted to check here just in case..

Loren, I had a problem with the batteries as well. I burned through 4 batteries and I was all set on going with a different drill until I learned that Ryobi was now offering a lifetime warranty on the batteries, I had to pay an extra 20 dollars or so for it but I felt it was worth it.

When you say it fried what exactly did it do?
Have you checked the brushes?

Blakep, Thats the one! Drill is blue, black and yellow. Its gotta be the 18v though because I have the 18v batteries and charger…

Sas- The drill was acting a bit funny for a week or so and I went to use it the other day and it just stopped. I put a freshly charged battery in it and nothing. After pulling the trigger a few more times it finally started turning but only for a few seconds before there was a big pop sound and the smell of electrical burning. I am assuming its toast. I don’t know much about electric/battery motors so I doubt I could find the problem myself and I doubt its worth paying to have it fixed. What do you think?

Dan,
I have one of the newer Ryobi 18v drills I can send you. It is new and never been used, if it will work with your batteries… I can send you a picture if you would like…

I have the complete kit with the saw, light, drill, and handvac. Just does not have the batteries. It is the blue, black, and gold color.
