Ryobi 18V Ratchet Wrench R18RW-0 Is Part of the Ryobi Jobplus System

Glenn wrote in about a new Ryobi 18V Ratchet Wrench R18RW-0 that he spotted in the Ryobi Australia website.

  • Voltage: 18V
  • No-load speed: 220 rpm
  • Torque: 27 Nm
  • Coupler: 9.5mm (3/8″)
  • Weight: 0.9 Kg
  • LED light

The new Ryobi 18V ratchet wrench uses a 9.5mm square drive head which translates to 3/8 inch, has 27 Nm torque which translates to 238.9 in-lbs or 19.9 ft-lbs of torque, and 220 RPM, and even includes an LED light for low light use.

Although the new ratchet wrench is sold as a complete tool, it’s actually two tools in one as the Ratchet Wrench part is an add-on head to the Ryobi Jobplus system and even includes the Jobplus motor unit. As most of you may know, the Ryobi Jobplus system is similar to Ridgid’s Jobmax system and both systems are compatible and interchangeable with each other. This means that if you buy the new Ryobi 18v ratchet wrench, you’ll be able to use any of the many Ryobi jobplus and Ridgid Jobmax heads.

The Ryobi 18V Ratchet Wrench R18RW-0 is is sold as a bare tool meaning that you’ll need to bring your own battery and charger to use. Included with the ratchet is a 9.5mm (3/8″) extension socket. I am not sure if or when this will make it’s way to the USA but seeing how just about all other new Ryobi tools spotted outside the USA usually end up as USA model variants, I have a good feeling we’ll get one here as well.

Does the head really have an LED? That seems odd as the base definitely has one and I don’t think the system has an electrical connection between the base and head, only mechanical. And why not just buy the Ridgid ratchet head? Although as I look now it doesn’t seem to be in stock at HD.


That is a big tool with a big battery that will be hard to fit into places and it has only 20 ft/lbs of torque. That is worthless. I always thought the Craftsman C3/19.2 ratchet was worthless for the same reasons and it had 30 ft/lbs. They’re not cheap, but the Milwaukee M12 fuel ratchets are by far the best in the industry right now. They’re still bigger and less powerful than pneumatic, but they’re close.


Any idea when the Ryobi Power Ratchet will be available in the US? I’d really like to get one, but can’t find it listed anywhere.


I just want one of these to be available in the U.S. I really want one of these.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
