    If it is about all you can afford I say get it.

    I run a woodworking business as well as lawn care and have bought Ryobi tools for years for different things. They are definetely not in the same league as other manufacturers but sell very decent products for the price. Now I can only speak for the woodworking tools but they are not as user friendly and don't have as much power typically, but they defintely have there place in my shop. Not bottom of the line cheapo type of stuff. Somewhere in the middle.
