thanks to those who helped educate me on transfer pictures :thumbright:
still working on that

back to subject

the ryobi performs in a similar fashion to the 10.8v bosch both have similar swings 3 degrees
both osscilate at 2000
the ryobi is around 50mm longer with a more bulky battery apart from that they are a similar profile

the ryobi has an illumination lamp and the head un-clips for 4 position use as in clock face 12-3-6-9

the head is interchangeable but no other heads are offered yet suspect the aeg one may be similar as both are from the same parent company the body does have a reverse switch

the ryobi is slightly angle so with the battery hanging down the blade will still cut flat this could reduce its use in restricted areas as the top is about 5" above that point although turning it through 90% will reduce that but still restricted to 65mm as the battery width against around 50mm off the bosch

the blade fittings are different from the bosch style there is an adapter supplied that turned up one way gives you 4"pegs" that match the bosch
turn it up the other way you get another 4"pegs" slightly closer together i assume for the fein blades

i will add further comments later
