    wall plugs in bricks thats all I wanna do, will 18V hammer-ness cut it?

  •  

    Any idea if the batteries are compatible with black and decker or other brand tools?

  •  

    Have a browse in drills as there's an 18v Rockwell ShopSeries Cordless Drill on sale as well for $40

    •  

      It's not brushless

      •  

        Does it really make much difference for the home handyman?

        •  

          Probably not for me and I figure there is more to go wrong with the brushless electronics.

        • +4 votes

          Brushless vs brushed is not a great differentiator. However 50Nm max torque vs 18Nm makes this a better deal. If you are still not convinced consider the 13mm chuck vs 10mm and two batteries vs one battery.

  •  

    Thank you OP, pulled the trigger.

  •  

    Is this a better drill/deal than the Bunnings XU1 18V Li-Ion 2 Piece Combo Kit for $49 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/432220 If so, can anyone explain why? I'm struggling to compare the specs.

    •  

      This toolpro is brushless

    •  

      This one is a hammer drill which means you can drill into masonry / brick / concrete and a lot more useful than a drill driver or impact drill. Can't vouch for quality between the two but if you only want one tool to do most of the drilling / screwing this would be it

    •  

      It really depends on what you need. If you never see yourself drilling into masonry get the xu1, impact drivers are great for driving screws. If you do need to drill into brick, then get this and lookout for a conpatible impact driver maybe? Or buy the xu1 kit and see if you can find the xu1 hammer drill which was 39 bucks, then you have 3 batteries and 2 chargers.

    •  

      Yeah I bought both & the XU1 2 piece set is rubbish by comparison,to give you an idea of build quality this thing weighs more than both those put together, XU1 doesn't even have a 2 speed gearbox

  •  

    Reviews say batteries are failing pretty quick.
    Wouldn't trust something going on clearance when shit like that happens (unless you can find a workable adapter).

    Glad I picked up 2 x 4ah ozito batteries and a fast charger when Bunnings was honoring Aldi deals.
    Got a brushless drill driver skin and it has been awesome.
    Got a brushless jet blower with 2 x 3ah batteries and a dual fast charger for $149 also so feel like I should stick with the Ozito gear now I'm slightly invested in it.

    Since Masters disappeared a lot of this line (Stanley and its friends) has been pretty condemned I think.

      I miss Masters (even though I never set foot in a store). At least they provided some competition.

      • +3 votes

        If you had ever set foot inside a Masters store, you would know how disappointingly small their level of competition was. Half their products were the same price as Bunnings and the other half were more expensive.

        SCA, Aldi and others provide more competition than Masters ever did.

      •  

        Bunnings thanks you.

    •  

      Are Rockwell and toolpro stanley? Are the batteries compatible?

  •  

    Can you use this as a screwdriver?

  •  

    Thanks. Got one.

    Bunnings offer a 12v brushed version for $59 with 2 batteries so this deal sounds good

    Don't waste your money on these no name drills, even home handy man stuff around the house. The poor man really does pay twice when it comes to power tools.

    •  

      well in my case this is my 5th drill… haha….

      i really am poor now…

      1st - some really cheapy 18v nicd drill driver before li-ion was mainstream
      2nd - 18 li-ion 909 brand
      3rd - corded ozito hammer drill. Actually pretty good but only negative is that it's corded
      4th - ozito power xchange 18v li-ion brushed. This is pretty weak.
      5th - this ToolPro drill

        I personally stick with Ryobi stuff it's above average quality and performance at a DIYer price, plus plenty of second hand skins or kits on gumtree/cashies

      • +1 vote

        Pick up a dewalt when on special.
        works above and beyond. I can focus on the project and not on my gear.

        You’d be able to afford one by now too. It was only $180

        I second the ryobi too. Had one for years and beat the crap out of it

    •  

      Second this advice - better off getting the $200 AEG hammer drill / impact / torch combo at Bunnings. Much better quality and opens up all the different skins AEG produces + 6 year warranty

      • +4 votes

        The AEG brushless drill has some serious (verging on dangerous) torque and rotation speed.

        I badly sprained my wrist with it once when a spade bit got jammed at the end of breaking through a joist; and the drill body plus my arm turned instead of the bit. I always make sure the clutch is on now.

        Also, brushless motors are annoyingly loud

      •  

        I didn't think it was brushless?

    • +3 votes

      I would completely and respectfully disagree with you. The people buying these drills will find them perfectly fine in nearly all cases and wont be soending 200 bucks on an ornament they wont use.

      The tradies, thats a different story.

      • +2 votes

        Agreed.
        I have a 800w Ozito corded drill that has been going strong for 15+ years. And a couple of cordless drills. One 18v I've had for 6 or 7 years, a 12v one for 10+. Both were under $50 with 2 batteries. The batteries are failing more quickly these days, but when it gets annoying I will replace them with a new drill.

        Brand name drills cost at least double, and the batteries wear out too.

    I want to bolt a rack of shelves to the concrete slab in the garage. Will this do the job easy? Or do I need something more powerful?

    • +1 vote

      This should do just fine.
      It's usually the cheap bits that add the effort required for drilling through concrete - get a decent hammer drill compatible bit to go with it and you will go through that floor in no time.

    What's with SCAs new site. I go to search this item with 'Toolpro 18 v or Toolpro 18 volt" and nothing. It even did it with those Black & Decker bargains
    Anyone else find this?

    Is this good for removing nuts from a car wheel? If not which ones better, the Bunnings impact drill from the kit? Thanks!

    • +1 vote

      Impact is what you want

    •  

      Bunnings ozito impact driver will not remove wheel nuts (or probably any nuts at that) . I'm speaking from experience.

      Rated at 150Nm and cannot undo nuts that were torqued on less than that.

      I had to use my neighbours Makita brushless impact driver to do this.

      Note there are specific tools you can buy to do nuts and bolts - aka a rattle gun.
      But unless you only work with nuts and bolts then it's an expensive purchase as the cordless ozito rattle gun is $199 in a kit.
      Better off buying a branded brushless impact driver that you can use with screws (primary use) and also nuts (secondary). Will likely still cost $200 but has dual purpose.

      Edit

      Rattle gun is the same as impact wrench but different from impact driver

    •  

      https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-one-18v-3-speed-impact-wre... that would be the best bang for buck for 360nm of torque

    Can anyone suggest a set or a couple of inexpensive / decent drill bits, so they do perfectly in brick?

    Anyone else with this issue?
