Ryobi PSBID01 Angle 5

Ryobi PSBID01

Quick take

The Milwaukee M12 Fuel 3453-20 is a true sub-compact impact driver, whereas the Ryobi 18V One+ PSBID01 is a hybrid impact driver with a performance profile and size between most 12V and 18V models. The Milwaukee 3453-20 is the better pick and doesn’t cost considerably more. Even with its smaller footprint and more compact design, the Milwaukee 3453-20 is faster under load and generates far more torque. The exceptionally compact footprint is also more agile and helps it fit into tight areas.

The compact shape of the PSBID01 is a welcome departure from Ryobi’s typical design approach, which frequently resulted in overly large impact drivers compared to the competition.

Outside its reasonably compact design, the PSBID01 leans slightly forward for solid reach. The entire grip is covered in a rubber overmold, which helps with shock absorption for a more comfortable driving experience.

An included belt is mountable on either side of the base, and there is also a lanyard hook, but no lanyard is included. Other helpful and common Ryobi impact driver features the PSBID01 didn’t build into the design are a bit holder and a magnetic plate to hold fasteners, though these can be purchased as third-party add-ons.

The 3453-20 follows the design language familiar to Milwaukee’s M12 impact driver lineup with a forward-biased handle and head angle that reaches toward the sky. The forward design provides excellent reach in certain driving conditions. The handle includes a rubber overgrip that feels more premium than other impact drivers and offers good shock absorption.

A belt hook is included and is mountable on either side. There is no bit holder or magnetic fastener holder onboard, unlike some Ryobi impact drivers with these features built into the tool.

The battery slots into the handle to give it a svelte design compared to other impact drivers. Milwaukee’s higher Ah M12 batteries are more traditionally designed to widen and lengthen the base, albeit remaining extremely compact. Without a battery, the 3453-20 doesn’t stand upright.

Weight

Ryobi PSBID01 On Scale

Bare weight (lbs): 1.85
Weight w/ 2Ah battery (lbs): 2.81
Weight w/ 2.5Ah battery (lbs):  Not tested
Weight w/ 4Ah battery (lbs): 3.49
Weight w/ 5Ah battery (lbs): Not tested

The PSBID01 is exceptionally lightweight in its bare tool form and with a battery, great for extended driving sessions where arm and hand fatigue can set in.

The working weight can differ significantly depending on the battery run in your setup, which is why we tested the weight in different configurations. To keep it lightweight, we recommend combining the PSBID01 with Ryobi’s 18V One+ 2Ah battery for a good balance of performance and weight.

If weight is less of a concern, pair the PSBID01 with Ryobi’s 18V One+ 4Ah battery for a longer run time and improved driving performance. With this battery setup, the PSBID01 impressively beats the weight of more expensive models with a larger capacity 5Ah battery.

The 3453-20 is nimble and incredibly lightweight in its bare tool form and with a battery. This impact driver is one of the lightest setups available on the market.

The working weight can differ significantly depending on the battery run in your setup, which is why we tested the weight in different configurations. To keep it lightweight, we recommend combining the 3453-20 with Milwaukee’s M12 Red Lithium CP 2Ah battery for a good balance of performance and weight.

If weight is less of a concern, Milwaukee offers several higher Ah M12 batteries in its lineup. However, you forego the in-handle design for a slightly bulkier footprint and weight. Upgrading to Milwaukee’s M18 lineup may be more suitable as the size increases.

Context is essential when discussing the PSBID01 and the fact that Ryobi brands it as a compact impact driver. It is highly compact and incredibly nimble compared to budget impact drivers and within the Ryobi lineup. The PSBID01 is one of the smallest footprint impact drivers Ryobi offers.

But the compact size can’t compete with higher-priced models from other brands, mostly when comparing the collet-to-back length and the length of the base, both of which are relatively large. This footprint limits the tight spaces the PSBID01 can fit into compared to more expensive models.

The Dewalt 20V Atomic DCF850 and Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20 are two of the smallest and most agile heavy-duty impact drivers we’ve come across.

Motor

Motor: Brushless
Impacts per minute: 3,800.0

The PSBID01 includes a brushless motor that improves its longevity and efficiency over cheap brushed impact drivers where durability is a concern. Including a brushless motor partly explains the outstanding battery run time performance we experienced in our lab.

But consider that the advertised 3800.0 impacts per minute is middle of the pack, partly explaining why the PSBID01 underperforms premium competitors in most driving tests.

Motor

Motor: Brushless
Impacts per minute: 4,000.0

Brushless motors, such as Milwaukee’s Powerstate motor included in the 3453-20, are highly efficient, increase battery run time, and are more durable than their brushed motor counterparts.

The advertised 4000.0 impacts per minute are high for a sub-compact, partly explaining the snappy driving performance in our tests.

Drive modes

Drive modes: 1
Drive mode 1:  High speed 
Drive mode 2:  N/A 
Drive mode 3:  N/A 
Drive mode 4:  N/A 
Variable speed trigger: Yes

The PSBID01 isn’t a cheap impact driver or an expensive one. But where it sits at its price point, it falls far behind the competition regarding its single drive mode. Most similarly-priced impact drivers offer three or more drive modes to vastly improve driving performance across light to heavy-duty tasks.

The lacking drive modes is a critical letdown to consider if needing an impact driver that finishes screws accurately with a consistent recess. No high-speed drive mode is ideal for such jobs, but the PSBID01 finishes screws better than competing models set to the highest speed mode.

But impact drivers with several speed and specialty driving modes are highly accurate, and most are subtle enough to consistently recess screws into all material densities, even MDF and drywall.

The Makita 18V LXT XDT14Z and Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF845 are similarly-priced alternatives with several helpful drive modes.

Drive modes

Milwaukee 3453-20 Drive Modes

Drive modes: 4
Drive mode 1:  High speed 
Drive mode 2:  Medium speed 
Drive mode 3:  Low speed 
Drive mode 4:  Self-tapping 
Variable speed trigger: Yes

Four driving modes on the 3453-20 vastly improve driving versatility over single-mode models. Drive modes we label as 1, 2, 3, and 4 correspond to high speed, medium speed, low speed, and self-tapping screw modes. The advertised impacts per minute for the speed modes are 4000.0, 3500.0, and 1300.0, respectively.

Drive mode 1 is the best option for heavy-duty tasks, such as driving lag bolts and decking screws. This mode finishes screws nicely enough compared to the brute force high-speed modes on most 18V impact drivers. But any impact driver’s high-speed setting is rarely the best option for an accurate screw finish.

Drive mode 2 is the best for a clean and consistent screw recess in most materials. The mode has enough power to drive screws into dimensional lumber, treated lumber, plywood, and hard and softwood.

We found ourselves favoring drive mode 2 over drive mode 1 since the lower setting lacks power, and drive mode 2 is already highly accurate in all density materials.

The self-tapping mode works well enough driving common screw sizes in 1/2-inch to 1-inch lengths in thin sheet metal. In this mode, the collet spins until impacting and slows down to tap the screw.

This approach differs from other Milwaukee impact drivers, with a more consistent and versatile self-tapping drive mode. The Milwaukee M12 Fuel Surge 2551-20 has a better self-tapping mode. The 2551-20’s collet stops once a specific light rotational force is reached, and then it starts again slowly for a short moment. The 3453-20 doesn’t restart when holding the trigger, and we found this lacking feature reducing the self-tapping mode’s consistency.

Driving speed

GRK total driving time forward (sec.): 26.6
GRK average driving time forward (sec.): 5.3
GRK total driving time reverse (sec.): 19.6
GRK average driving time reverse (sec.): 3.9

The PSBID01 isn’t the impact driver of choice if you frequently drive decking screws, lag bolts, and other big fasteners, as demonstrated in our driving speed tests. It has sufficient torque to handle any task we threw at it, but the PSBID01 bogs down considerably with longer, bigger fasteners.

GRK total driving time forward (sec.): 21.7
GRK average driving time forward (sec.): 4.3

The 3453-20 efficiently and impressively drove long GRK screws into treated lumber, far outshining other sub-compact impact drivers in our driving speed tests. But consider that the driving speed for big screws and lag bolts doesn’t compete with more powerful 18V impact drivers. So, it’s not an ideal fit for heavy-duty driving jobs only.

For the most common driving tasks around the home, the 3453-20 is fantastic. It powerfully drives decking screws and quickly drives common screw sizes into dimensional lumber, plywood, softwoods, and hardwoods.

The PSBID01 is branded as a compact impact driver, so we know out of the gate that it won’t win any podium spots for torque.That said, the PSBID01 is moderately powerful for its size. Its torque profile sits between light-duty 12V models that are perfect for around the home and woodworking and heavier-duty 18V impact drivers most suitable for driving big screws and fasteners.

A frequent theme in Milwaukee’s flagship Fuel lineup is a trade-off between torque and speed depending on the task. Milwaukee gears most of its Fuel lineup to speed through the most demanding tasks, giving up some speed performance to competitors in lighter-duty jobs. This approach explains why the 3453-20 is geared to generate such high torque output.

The 3453-20 packs in a powerful torque punch in the 12V class. It not only secured the podium position for torque output in our Summer ’23 sub-compact test fleet but it also outpaced many larger 18V impact drivers.

Battery run time

Power type: Cordless
Battery run time (min.): 58.0
Battery tested: 18V One+ High Performance 2Ah (PBP003)
Voltage: 18

The PSBID01 is a battery run time champ, as demonstrated by hitting nearly 1 hour of no-load battery run time in our tests.

We tested battery run time with the 2Ah battery version. With an 18V One+ 4Ah battery, expect the battery run time to continue outperforming competing models running the same Ah setup.

In later updates, we’ll test battery run time under load to see if the results hold.

Battery run time

Power type: Cordless
Battery run time (min.): 19.0
Battery tested: 12V Red Lithium CP 2Ah (48-11-2420)

The primary downside of the 3453-20 is its poor battery run time performance, which is one of the worst results we’ve encountered.

We tested battery run time with the 2Ah battery version. With a higher Ah M12 battery, expect the battery run time to continue underperforming competing models running the same Ah setup.

The practical run time may differ under load since Milwaukee offers highly efficient and powerful motors. But we haven’t tested beyond no-load run time to understand how it performs.

Battery lineup

Ryobi 18V One+ Battery Lineup

Ryobi offers 1.5Ah, 2Ah, 4Ah, 6Ah, 8Ah, and 12Ah batteries in its 18V One+ lineup, and some versions come in a standard or high-performance model. Upgrading to the higher Ah options increases battery run time and improves driving performance, though we’ve not tested all of these batteries to understand the cost tradeoffs.

Having at least two batteries in your setup is best so you don’t miss a beat when draining one battery. We recommend buying a Ryobi 18V One+ High Performance 2Ah and a Ryobi 18V One+ High Performance 4Ah battery for most 18V One+ impact driver setups on an excellent performance, price, and size balance.

Battery lineup

Milwaukee M12 Battery Lineup

Milwaukee offers 1.5Ah, 2Ah, 2.5Ah, 3Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah, and 6Ah batteries in its M12 lineup. Upgrading to the higher Ah options increases battery run time and improves driving performance, though we’ve not tested all of these batteries to understand the cost tradeoffs.

Having at least two batteries in your setup is best so you don’t miss a beat when draining one battery. We recommend buying two Milwaukee M12 Red Lithium CP 2Ah batteries for most M12 impact driver setups for a good balance of performance, price, and size.

Many Milwaukee impact drivers come in kits with chargers that charge multiple voltage batteries in one, conveniently saving space in your shop if you have several M12 and M18 ecosystem tools.

The PSBID01 turned in below-average RPM results in our tachometer testing. Whether this performance is a pro or con depends on your intended usage.

We find that lower RPM models more easily set screws than higher RPM impact drivers that ramp RPMs quickly and mostly spin out on the work surface.

On the other hand, higher RPM impact drivers finish driving tasks more quickly, as evidenced in our driving speed tests.

With its lower-than-average RPM, the PSBID01 is better suited to medium-duty tasks, which are the most frequent jobs for homeowners.

The 3453-20 is one of the fastest impact drivers we’ve come across. The High RPM performance partly explains why it breezes through driving common screw sizes and lengths. The high RPM also helps set screws quickly, though there is some cam-out risk with such a high RPM. However, the cam-out risk is reduced significantly by using the other drive modes and by the fact that it’s a 12V impact driver with less torque than an 18V impact driver.

There is no significant measured RPM difference between forward and reverse for each drive mode. Some models increase RPM in reverse for specific drive modes to help bust loose bolts and stubborn screws. We didn’t encounter a situation where the 3453-20 was underpowered removing screws.

Driving clearance

Min. interior width clearance (in.): 8.000
Min. top edge clearance (in.): 1.125
Min. interior 45-deg. clearance (in.): 6.500

We don’t recommend the PSBID01 if you want an impact driver that is agile enough to fit into tight spaces and clearances. The footprint is too long from tip to back and on the base.

However, as we’ve discussed already, context is vital. The PSBID01 turned in some of the best results of any Ryobi model tested in our interior clearance tests. It is a standout pick for one of the most agile Ryobi impact drivers available.

The 3453-20 performed well in our clearance tests due to its sub-compact size, narrow footprint, and in-handle battery design. The short collet-to-back length results in outstanding interior 45-degree clearance. Outside our standardized tests, we found the 3453-20 highly agile in practical situations with easy access in tight corners and spaces.

The PSBID01 is moderately loud with no load but is louder than most models in our test fleet under impact. The latter performance when impacting is more critical since the impacting noise of any similar tool is harmful with prolonged exposure.

The Milwaukee M12 Fuel Surge 2551-20 and Milwaukee M18 Fuel Surge 2760-20 are other options to consider. Both are hydraulic impact drivers with much quieter impacts.

The work light on the PSBID01 is relatively bright, though it doesn’t always directly illuminate the work surface at the tip. The work light shines upward from the base, a design that works well when driving 3-inch and shorter screws.

But as the screw length increases, the focus area of the light begins to illuminate slightly above the tip. The illumination won’t be a problem for most driving scenarios, but it’s worth considering if you frequently drive longer fasteners in darker environments.

The work light doesn’t act as a dedicated flashlight, like some Makita impact drivers, and can’t be disabled.

Collet size: 1/4-inch hex
Quick-change collet: Yes
Bit-eject collet: Yes
Easy-insert collet: Yes

One-handed bit changes are easy with the PSBID01, thanks to the easy-insert and bit-eject mechanisms built into the collet. The bit-eject mechanism jettisons bits more powerfully than other impact drivers, sometimes resulting in not catching the bits. But after a few rounds of usage, catching the bit is easy and isn’t an issue.

Collet

Milwaukee 3453-20 Collet Closeup

Milwaukee rarely includes a bit-eject feature on its impact drivers, but some models have an incredibly smooth easy-insert design, both of which are true with the 3453-20.

Many Dewalt impact drivers include easy-insert and bit-eject collets that are smooth with the best collet design we’ve come across.

App integration

App integration: None

There is no bluetooth app integration to review impact driver diagnostics or to customize driving profiles. Dewalt’s ToolConnect and Milwaukee’s One Key models offer app integrations that track impact driver usage, display tool diagnostics, and allow you to set custom driving profiles, such as adjusting the RPM for each drive mode.

Warranty

Tool warranty (years): 3
Battery warranty (years): 90 day

Ryobi offers an exceptionally-long three-year warranty on its impact drivers. However, Ryobi’s battery warranties don’t come close to matching the length provided by most other manufacturers. Ryobi has a 90-day battery warranty, whereas other manufacturers commonly offer two to three years of coverage.

Warranty

Tool warranty (years): 5
Battery warranty (years): 2-3 (depends on model)

Milwaukee stands behind the durability of its drills with exceptionally long warranties. The 3453-20 has a five-year warranty, which is among the longest offered by any manufacturer. Milwaukee’s M12 Li-Ion batteries have two or three-year warranties, depending on the specific model.
