I've only seen homeowners and apprentices use Ryobi. I was on a job once and didn't want to run to the van to get my impact to drive in two screws so I picked up some guys Ryobi drill to screw them in. The RPM's were really low.
Spend a few more bucks and get Milwaukee, Dewalt, or Makita.

I was thinking Ryobi since I'm just starting out & over time getting Milwaukee's. Or starting off with Ridgid because of their lifetime battery warranty

I don't see anything wrong with the ryobi tools. Sure there not the best made or most rugged. But heck in this line of work when tools get wet and beat. Why not? I've had terrible luck with dewalt, and the ridgid tools. I am slowly building a Milwaukee kit but have been using the ryobi for a couple years now. Some of the add on tools are extremely handy. The mini air compressor is legit for under $40.00. I've tested water lines up to 90 psi with it no issues. I have the pistol snake and it surprisingly works pretty well for running through a kitchen drain.
