I prefer Rigid as they seem to have a 5% quality lead when in my hands. My drills, impact and saw are all rigid 18. But ryobi has the outdoor tools cornered with both 18 and 40v offerings which rigid simply doesn’t offer. My first ryobi chainsaw and pole saw fell apart after a lot of use. The poke saw is still limping along; I’ve waited to figure out if I’ll go with the updated 18v or the full 40v saw. ryobi has so many accessories for their line, the weekend warrior, tailgater, camper and all-arounder is probably better served with their array of offerings.
