expired Ozito Power X Change 18V 5 Piece Kit $198 (Normally $299) @ Bunnings

750

Great deal, matching the ALDI deal, but I find the Power X Change to be built to a bit higher standard.

Aldi does have two 4Ah batteries whereas the Power x Change only has a 2Ah and a 4Ah

Normal price from https://pricehipster.com/product/Rz9l4GSnK9NkNGJcyOBm-g~HJ1K...

Tools - 5 Year Replacement Warranty
Batteries and Charger - 3 Year Replacement Warranty

The great thing about Ozito's warranty is you generally can just walk into a Bunnings, and swap out the dead tool for a working one if ever the need arises.

    Got a drill of these, anyone know where I can get drillbits, including the usuals plus maybe ikea style hex ends?

    • +9 votes

      I find these packs to be reasonable quality drill bits for the price, they will be fine for general around the house tasks. For driver bits, cheap pretty often equates to nasty. This kit is pretty reasonable for the $$$ though and fine for the home handyman.

  •  

    You can’t get the drill bits from Bunnings and you can also get Hex IKEA bits from IKEA I’ve seen the bits in IKEA when I was there last

    poor offering from bunnings this time - no 2 x 4.00 batts major difference

    • +16 votes

      A difference, yes, a major one, no. I often find myself going for a smaller battery due to weight and bulk so there are advantages to both depending on what/how you are using.

      • +6 votes

        Agreed - weight can be a real issue with extended use. Some tools like angle grinders will eat batteries in minutes but drills can last many hours of normal use so a lighter package is often more useful in practice.

      •  

        small batteries fine for smaller tools but useless for bigger ones. prefer batts that can do all skins.

        also still have muscles…

    •  

      Given the specials they've had the specials on the batteries in the past it's not too bad if anyone who gets this finds themselves running short on power.

      I don't think so though imo. On my tools maybe except a blower, 3Ah/4Ah has been plenty for the jobs I need them. For the sort of person who'd buy a general Ozito kit I reckon they'd be fine.

  •  

    Doesn't seem to be offered in NT, when I try to get to the page it just takes me to the home page. If I pick a random QLD store it shows up. I suppose because there's no Aldi up here! Bugger

      I guess it depends on whether they bother stocking that five pc set up here. If they have it in store I reckon they would honour it. These sales are usually National. (eg. This Aldi matching deal from October 2017 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/335274 came good for me. Especially helpful post Marcus!)

    Wish they would ditch the torch and include something useful or reduce the price.

      Yes, like a impact wrench

      • +3 votes

        Yep, it would be nice of them to swap out a $20 tool for a $100 one, not really going to happen though. I have the work light which has actually copped quite a bit of use, the proportional price for this in this pack at this price would likely only be $10-11 so I don't think it's worth dropping for that discount.

    I've been looking for a new 18V li-ion kit to replace my Ozito ni-cad drill which is always flat. Any thoughts on getting this vs the Ryobi kits? I already have a 18V Ryobi blower with a 5.0Ah battery if that makes a difference. Already have a corded angle grinder and circular saw, otherwise I'd be on this without a doubt.

    • +1 vote

      Really depends on use, a second angle grinder can be handy ie one with a cutting disk, one with a grinding.
      I tend to view cordless more as complimentary to my corded stuff, but if you aren't using what you have much, an additional one isn't likely to be used to much either.
      You are more likely to get good deals on Ozito stuff into the future due to bunnings price matching Aldi whereas Ryobi will likely be RRP, but the importance of that really depends on how many tools and batteries you are likely to buy in the future.

      •  

        I probably will end up getting this. The cordless stuff will be handy for light jobs and saves plugging in extension leads. The Ozito skins are cheap too and I can see myself getting the pole pruner as well as other skins, especially with renovations. The Ozito system is cheaper and they have what appears to be a great warranty. Now to explain all the extra tools to the wife haha.

    • +1 vote

      Haha I'm in the same boat. The old green Ozitos are pretty bad, but I really like the Ryobi blower. I think eventually I'm going to get the Ryobi One+ 18V Brushless Hammer Drill Driver Skin for $149 or less. I just need a better drill, don't need anything else, not keen on more charger/batteries either.

    •  

      Ryobi have a great range of stuff. Look on there us site and they have even more things that aren't available in Australia. Oh and gumtree/cash converters always have heaps of Ryobi tools for sale if your looking for a better grade tool than Ozito but well priced compared to the tradie gear I'd recommend Ryobi

      I have been very satisfied as a home diy user with the red ozito range. Their brushless impact driver and brushless drill are great upgrades if you find yourself needing more power down the track, and the jigsaw is also a good buy too. This deal gets you a huge chunk of tools and batteries, to get you hooked ;-)

      Far easier to get tools from bunnings than having to wait for the aldi ones to come around again… and better value than Ryobi which are still low end tools.

    •  

      pretty sure the li-ion batteries can replace the ni-cad (in the tool not the charger)

  •  

    If I didn't have the 2 drivers I would be all over it, bl..dy cheap for what you get.

  •  

    Would have picked up a set of these if I do not have a collection of ryobi … have over 10 pieces and it keeps on growing.
    It seems illogical to maintain 2 battery systems

    5 years warranty a very smart move from Ozito, in fact the expert handyman will buy a better brand for intense use and the occasional handyman will use these tools not that often to have problems with motors.

  •  

    Very tempted to buy…

  •  

    Any of these tools brushless?

  •  

    Hey guys can I just add that the tumblers that are on sale next Wednesday (4 for $15) are amazing. They're basically Marquis by Waterford style and quality. We have both and guests can't tell which one is the ALDI one.

  • +1 vote

    Only thing missing from this to make it a great wide usage kit is a hammer drill for brick work (even if it's the odd couple of holes for garage or hanging some plants, etc.)

    Would've been more useful than the angle grinder or combine the impact driver and drill to give a hammer drill instead.

    Looks like Bunnings is giving ALDI same treatment as they gave Masters.

  •  

    What aldi deal are they competing with?

  •  

    Was this deal better https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Xceed-Combo-Kit-5pc-18V-Drill-Im...

    At least with ozito I have the batteries :) and I already have a ozito Recipro saw.

  •  

    This was advertised (incorrectly) for $189 at the Fountain Gate Bunnings Store. Just bought it for that price!

    Might still be the same price tomorrow :)

  •  

    Does this circular saw can cut accurately for 45 degree? Not good experience with my ozito drop saw before. It couldn't cut it accurately and all angle guide was not accurate either. Anyone tried this circular saw for 45 degree?

  •  

    Are this brushless? Noob in diy here

    I bought the 'Ozito Power X Change 5 Piece Kit' mainly for the Impact Driver. It is a PoS!

    Even though the impact driver is rated at 150Nm, the Torque is actually LESS than the Drill Driver which is rated 40Nm of Torque.

    Tried numerous times to drive a basic screw into hardwood and the Impact Driver was unable to drive in the screw.

    I don't believe the impact driver has 150Nm of torque, it must be less as it performed worse than the Drill Driver.

    Returned and am looking if there are any Ryobi on special that maybe better.

    •  

      Sounds like you might have got a dodgy one, mine (that I got a year or two ago) does screws into hardwood without dramas, definitely has more torque than the drill.

    • +1 vote

      I actually did the same thing yesterday. Return this 5 piece kit to bunnings after experiencing the similar issue. The power of the impact driver was soooo weak! I think it has the same power of my old Ryobi drill driver.

      •  

        Interesting…
        I wonder if that's why they are trying to move these large kit stocks
        Because the impact drivers are either faulty or they are no where near the 150Nm stated specs

        That's dodgy as !!

        •  

          Maybe go in with a fitting and attach it to one of their torque wrenches and test it, if it fails, ask for a brushless one as a replacement.

  •  

    13 left at Castle Hill if anyone is interested.

    I used the impact driver to put together a kid's play gym. I know not the highest torque requirements, but it was absolutely sufficient for that job.

  •  

    was looking for a kit over the weekend and yesterday and haven't found any store which has them in stock (tried Moorabbin, Mentone, Keysborough, Dandenong, Fountain Gate and Oakleigh South) if someone bought and doesn't need it in Melbourne, will be more than happy to buy it :)

    •  

      You can ask in store and they can look up to see who has stock, think you can also see online if a specific store has stock.

      •  

        already done, nothings has been found, alll stores mentioned that Mentone has 2, but when I called to Mentone store they said "sold out"

  •  

    Guys apologies for the silly question but what’s the difference between the drill driver and the impact driver?

    Can I use normal drill bits with the impact driver without the need for a drill driver?

    Also is it worth paying a bit more for the brushless versions? Longer life possibly?

    Thanks in advance.

      Impact drivers only takes hex shaped bits. You can't use a circular drill bit with an impact driver because it doesn't have a collar secure a non-hex bit - with impact drivers you pull out the retaining ring, put a new hex bit in, then release the ring which will secure the bit. With drill drivers you turn the collar to loosen/enlarge the opening, insert the bit (either round or hex), then turn the collar again to secure the bit. See this for a closer image:

      https://ozito.com.au/main/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Ozito-P...

      Impact drivers usually have more torque too and are designed to drive screws over and over again. Also, some drill bits aren't designed for high torque applications and may break if you use them with an impact driver.
