Ryobi USA v UK

Now if you have been reading the posts over the last week you would have seen how important it is to shop around and in some cases ensure you buy enough or at a value that gets you in the free P&P zone.

Ryobi RLM18X33H50 18V ONE+ Cordless 33cm Lawnmower Starter Kit (1 x 5.0Ah)
Highest Price £229.95 Tooled Up and Lowest price £189.58 CPC = £40.37 Difference

Ryobi R18SW3-0 18V ONE+ Cordless Debris Sweeper
Highest Price £179.96 CPC and Lowest price £155.95 SBS = £20.03 Difference

Ryobi The R18USB-0 Charger includes 2 charging ports, 1x 1.0A and 1x 2.1A
Highest Price £31.99 Littlewoods and Lowest price £23.93 CPC = £8.06 Difference  

Having looked at the availability of Ryobi One+ equipment in the UK and joining a few Ryobi User groups one finds out just how the users in the UK are fundamentally being ripped off.

Saw this on one of the UK Resellers web sites
