If you think you’ve seen this somewhere before it’s because you have. Ryobi’s auto hammer is the second “automatic hammer” to market and claims dominance over the Home Depot territory while its competitor, adorned with the Craftsman logo, lives at Sears. That’s about the biggest difference other than price we can find between the two.
Just look at the packaging and you’ll come to the same conclusion. 3600 beats per minute, driving 3.5” nails, 12v power pack — sound familiar? It should, since the both the Ryobi Auto Hammer and the Craftsman Hammerhead boast these features. We have the feeling Ryobi and Craftsman feel like this little gem will be the new Dad-needs-this gift this year.
The only major difference here is that the Ryobi runs about $10 to $20 cheaper on average from what we can tell, and sits at around $90 stock — but that’ll most likely be cranked down even lower once the holiday retail in-fighting begins.
