    wouldn't this be a better buy with all the extra accessories? - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/351332

      This has 2 batteries and is brushless which I would prefer.
      The Ozito has a better range of skins though.

      Ozito one is compact drill and I don't think it can be used for Masonry as this Rockwell impact drill claims - Drilling capacity: Wood 35mm, Steel 10mm, Masonry 13mm.

      I bought Ozito hammer drill from bunnings after representative there explained that hammer drills can later be used for masonry task. But, I wonder if I will ever use for that purpose :-.

        Yeah, as I understand the difference, Hammer drills apply an inward force on the bit, wheras Impact drills apply rotational force to the bit to assist twisting the bit through the substrate.
        Both apply a hammering force, but in different axis.
        Hammer is for drilling through masonry helping the bit to bite and then dig, Impact is for driving screws that require high torque.

          I think the issue is that they are simply calling a hammer drill an impact drill. What's known as an impact driver is totally different and only used for fastening. It may have something to do with this selling so badly (if it is selling so badly), because anyone looking for a hammer drill doesn't see this item on the SCA website. You are right about the axis part,but to my knowledge there's no 'other type' of hammer drill, they all work on the same principles with sds basically being slightly different but getting the same result (in that a bit with a chisel on the end chips away at the masonry but while the debris is routed out by the grooves and the spinning of the bit. If I am mistaken happy to be corrected.

    Shows full price when trying to checkout 😔
    Might be only for club members which is $5 to join.

      Nope, mine scanned @ $48.50 (Windsor Store, Qld) without using my member card.

        I just paid mine, hope it is a good drill for the household :)

  •  

    So is this an impact driver or a drill? Didn't know there was anything called an impact drill. Do you think SCA meant hammer drill?

      From its specification it looks like hammer drill -

      Drilling capacity: Wood 35mm, Steel 10mm, Masonry 13mm

      Impact drivers have 5 times the torque of this.

      I bought one a few weeks ago, and I had the same question.

      It is a hammer drill, manual shows a hammer, but actually never mentions the word hammer, it uses the word impact.
      But the manual is a little chinglish.

      I tried the hammer function but I feel it is a bit weak compared to the corded one I have.

      Other functions I am happy with for the price.

      I actually have bought two at $67 missed the $48 deals, $48 is a bargain. Stopping myself from buying a $48 one.
      One I bought for my dad, but rotating the setting to hammer is not smooth, requires a bit of force sometimes.
      The I have feels smooth. Actually they feel like different drills.

      Just the batteries and charger are worth more than $48. The batteries inside are made by Samsung but rated at 1.5Ah but are little low in my opinion.

    I just bought this last night for 65 bucks from the ebay store, anyone know if I can walk in to the shop and get an ebay refund or if not how I would go about it?

      Refund in store and will be paid back via original method of payment.

      •  

        Fantastic to hear, so much easier than going through some ebay debacle

        •  

          Just confirming that went into the shop and it was a painless, although a short wait while they managed the process which is understandable.

    Bless the Chinese and their "Badge Engineering"……. I picked up one of these drills this morning @ my local Supercheap and was most pleasantly surprised to see that the 18volt batteries fit and run on my Worx 20volt Brushless drill (also an OzBargain deal - from Masters). One of my Worx 20v batteries died a while ago. In addition, just checked the chargers and they appear to be identical - both have same Model# WA3860

    •  

      Supercheap used to sell Worx didnt they?

      •  

        They still do, available online. Can anyone confirm if the batteries fit the current line of works tools?
