Ryobi posted a new video to social media, where they smash a Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0 tool box with a cinder block.
The Ryobi rep then drops the same cinder block on a Ryobi Link tool box, which remains unscathed as the cinder block bounces away and crumbles.
Ryobi should have opened the tool boxes to prove they were both empty, and they should have repeated the test a couple of times.
Maybe the recent Link promotion will precede an announcement of some kind.
It has been nearly one year since Ryobi last expanded their LINK system with any new tool boxes, accessories, or wall-mountable storage products.
My local Home Depot stores recently featured Ryobi Link products in their holiday promotional displays, but they gave much more floor space to Dewalt ToughSystem, Milwaukee Packout, and Husky Build-Out systems.
I’m not convinced an expansion is coming, but it’d certainly be welcome.
It can get entertaining when tool brands bash each other’s products – literally in this case. It will be interesting to see if Dewalt social media reps take this as an opportunity to destroy some Ryobi tool boxes.
Or, Dewalt can just point out that at least their tool boxes don’t look to be topped with a giant Lego brick.
