The Delta line of drills, etc. is pretty comparable to the Ryobi. My
understanding is that was the target market for the line - Delta wanted to
compete with Ryobi, Mastercraft and other low - middle of the line tools.
Neither are a top-notch contender - but you have a budget and you need to
That said - up here in Canada, the Ryobi line is limited to Home Depo. The
Delta line is all over the place. If you think about battery replacement,
etc., you might be better off with Delta. Check the price of replacement
batteries for both, but if you're looking to get a replacement battery 2 or
3 years down the road, you might have better changes with the Delta.
I am in Canada as often as I am in US. I could only find the Delta combo
pack at Rona. (not sure if they are nation wide). What other stores carry
the Delta line. I might as well shop around.
