Ryobi’s coming out with some new tools, just in time for the 2015 holiday season. Most will be available by November, but the vacuum might not hit stores until December. Without further chit-chat, let’s get right into it.
The one I find most interesting is the new Ryobi P714K Evercharge hand vac. It’s got a traditional DustBuster hand vac look to it, and while Ryobi has offered hand vacs before (latest model preview, previous vacuum review), this one comes with an 18V One+ battery pack and a recharging station.
The Ryobi 18V One+ Evercharge vacuum has an internal charging system, which keeps the battery charged and ready when the vac is placed on its wall mount adapter.
Ryobi also says that the new P714K vac is 20% quieter, compared to their P713 vacuum.
Then there’s the Ryobi P737 cordless inflator, which can pump out air at up to 150 PSI. It’s got a 2-inch pressure gauge, 20-inch hose, and comes with a sports ball inflation needle and nozzle accessory.

Ryobi came out with a compact cordless corner finish sander earlier this year. Now, they’re coming out with the P411 cordless random orbit sander.
The new Ryobi 18V sander features a 5″ pad, 10,000 OPM no-load speed, and 3/32″ orbit diameter. Ryobi says that it can run for up to 35 minutes on a single (4Ah?) battery pack.
Ryobi came out with a new compact Bluetooth radio earlier this year, and now they’re coming out with a bigger one. The new P746 18V jobsite radio features an AM/FM tuner, auxiliary input, and Bluetooth connectivity. It also has a 2A USB port for charging your personal electronics.
Ryobi says that their new Bluetooth radio is built with 2 “ultra-premium” 7W speakers with separate amps for clear sound, and 4 bass ports for deeper sound at all volumes.
The new radio can be powered by an 18V One+ battery, or with AC power via a user-supplied standard extension cord.
There will also be a new drilling and driving bit set, AR2083, which looks unremarkable, except for the DOCKit storage system. The set comes with a hard-shell case and wall-mountable docking station that can fit other DOCKit accessory storage cases.
I mean this in the nicest way: too bad Ryobi didn’t come out with an empty DOCKit system that can be used with other brands’ bits, blades, and other power tool accessories. Not that Ryobi accessories are bad, I do own a set or two myself, but they’re not my top choice in most situations.
It’s also unfortunate that they still haven’t decided to bring their Ryobi ToolBlox modular tool storage system to the US.
