      Tried Round-Up?

    •  

      Just a heads up . I bought the blower/trimmer combo and the trimmer is next to useless . Blower is fine .

      • +2 votes

        I also have the blower/trimmer combo and have both to be very useful. Trimmer does my little lawn fine.
        I've had them 18 months now, and used both this arvo. Today I noticed for the first time ever that the trimmer has a storage case on the handle for the little plastic blades. I've always chucked a couple in my pocket as you inevitably lose at least one as you go. Who knew…?

      Does Bunnings allow returns?

        Not sure if this is a joke haha?
        These Ozito products have a 5 year replacement warranty at any Bunnings store but make sure you keep a copy of your receipt

      All good on my buffalo lawn.

      •  

        Me too. The trimmer does almost as good a job as my 4 stroke mower, it just takes twice as long and requires two charges with its 2AH battery.

        Not bad when the mower uses a tank of fuel (say, $1) to do the same thing (but makes so much more noise, fumes and heat)

        Their cheap little trimmer is excellent. So much better than the line trimmer I used to have that took up so much time jamming up.

        Buffalo grass must be harder to mow than buffalo lawn

    Bugger! Just bought the cordless mower on the weekend for $199! :( Great find though!

  •  

    Had a quick look at Bunnings carseldine (Qld). They had one of the ozito "ultimate garden kits" right next to the clearance table. The box looked a bit beat up, but should be fine. I couldn't find a price sticker, so no idea if it's ACTUALLY on clearance, but it certainly looked so.

    I didn't ask for price as they were just closing and I wasn't really interested, but if someone stops by tomorrow morning, let me know if it was on sale and for how much :)

    Electric Mowers are a great idea…
    …too bad the only ones worth getting are the expensive Japanese/German ones.

    The cheap ones really aren't good unless you have a tiny strip/front lawn. Since an even cheaper petrol one will do the job easier and faster.

    •  

      bugger, really wanted to avoid petrol, so annoying with oil etc etc. have a small yard. which ones do you recommend?

      •  

        How many m2 area is the yard?
        Also are the grass really thick/tall/wet?

        Our most recent elec Ozito cost about $120 and about 2 yo. Have no complaints at all. Perfect for small yards. Quieter than petrol mowers and instant stop when you take your hand off the handle. Always keep the line on the side you have finished. We had an elec model before this one that was still going at 10 years, wheels and height adjustment were going wonky etc. Bever replaced the blade. Plastic and metal parts don't work so well when teens bash them about…

        If you are looking to compare battery ones find out the cost of replacement batteries first as you will need spares and replacements. Elec is better value for money really atm.

        Have had a few back ops and I can manage the light elec mower just fine. Our lawn is not that small really; bigger than most new houses these days. I don't mow in the wet or tend to let the buffalo /runner / mixed grasses turn into an overgrown mess. Enjoy the exercise.

        I’ve got a small courtyard (10x4m) and the nature strip on the footpath at the front (10x1m).

        My Ryobi 18v mower, trimmer and blower do the job just fine.

        The whipper snipper is pretty weak so you’ve got to avoid the edges getting long. Blower and mower work fine.

        I’ve only got one battery that I share between them. And surprisingly, I only need to charge once in awhile. I thought I’d be charging a lot.

        So, if your yard needs are like mine, an 18v mower/trimmer combo should do the job.

        Hope this helps.

      I mow a quarter acre block with an Ego 56v mower, which is a Chinese brand. I think I paid $450 for it 5 years ago (or so, not sure when I got it).

      Used a 2x18v brushed Ozito mower on the weekend at a friend's place. It's perfectly adequate to their small yard but I wouldn't consider it usable at my place. Mostly because the deck is so narrow it'd take twice as many laps. It would manage the cut itself though.

      I also noticed the kit deal at Bunnings for the newer version of the mower, with a brushless motor and a single battery. I had a look on the weekend. I think the older version, though more expensive, is a better deal.

      Something I really like about all of them is no fluids. Not having to deal with fuel and oil and servicing and bloody pull starters is brilliant.

        The one from ALDI/Gardenline is what I bought, when it reduced in price/clearance. On paper, it's one of the best models: brushless, 2x 20V, 40,000mAh. So it's got quite a lot of Voltage and Wattage, and it's very light for efficiency.

        I got 1 charger, and 4x batteries.
        I found the mower is much much weaker than petrol (or plugged electric). So it requires a high-cut first, then a medium-cut second layer.

        And with all 4x batteries, it was barely enough to do my backyard (roughly 20-35 minute affair). Despite it was advertised to run 50mins on just 2x batteries, so I found the figures were off around x4-folds in real-world testing. And required 2hours to charge, so I could do the small front lawns and nature strip.

        I figured first time bad luck. So I waited 2 weeks later to reattempt the mowing challenge. No difference. I cleaned the machine well, put everything back into the original boxes, and asked for refund. Managed to get it without any issues.

        However, the whole affair left a bad taste in my experience. I'm not sure if the $300-$600 Ryobi ones will be better/upto the challenge (or work according to the advertising). Right now, using an old crappy petrol one borrowed from a sibling, I can do both the front and back lawn in 30mins without issue.

        I wonder if battery cars, when compared to petrol, are as bad as the battery mowers??

    Bought a grass trimmer and blower one a few months back, but probably just outside the warranty period … I must check. Beware of the blower; rarely used, looked after it, stored it inside etc. The switch appears faulty now. Does not work when switch is off or on but somewhere in between!? Weird and unusable.

      Use the benefit of 5 years warranty.

            @CranyFalcon: Great idea. One can always take pics with your mobile phone when out shopping too. I keep all my receipts, warranties and booklets together in a plastic paged folder. Just needed to find the time to locate them in there. Fortunately I don't have to do that very often. 😊

          I doubt you will need a receipt . I've taken back 2 ozito drills with no receipt and had no problems .

        My blower was purchased 3 months earlier as a 2 item kit (with a grass trimmer, battery & charger) for $99. Unfortunately no blowers were in stock at Bunnings (… apparently a replacement warranty is different from a regular warranty too … but they offered a full refund for both). Bit disappointed as just wanted the blower replaced, but ended up taking the refund and buying another blower with hedge trimmer (kit) $159 (inc. better 3.0Ah battery and fast charger) … and bought a new (and better) grass trimmer $79. Ended up costing me $139 extra after the $99 refund (Total was $238). Will just die if the new blower fails …

    What's the price of a replacement battery?

    • +2 votes

      $35 for a 2ah
      $69 for 4ah
      $99 for 5.2ah

      $49 for 3ah + fast charger (promo deal)
      $89 for 4ah + fast charger
      $115 for 4ah + 2ah + fast charger

        Protip: when Aldi have 4ah batteries on sale for $39 (for Aldi cordless tools) Bunnings have price matched in the past. They may not in future though… But if you don't need them now, it might be worth waiting.

    I have the Ozito line trimmer and it's ridiculously underpowered. Had to do multiple passes to get a cut and those blade things snapped with each session.

    End up buying a Ryobi petrol 2 stroke and it's a dream. It can probably cut a car in half IMO hahahaha

    •  

      Be careful here. The trimmer you have is literally just that, a 'Trimmer'. It's the cheaper variety with blades. It is not a Line Trimmer. The Ozito PXC Line Trimmer is a completely different thing and is pretty incredible. Uses proper Line not those crappy blades and runs with TWO batteries. Plenty of power for the typical yard.

      •  

        Ahhh yes, you are right. I had the trimmer that used the plastic blades. I was keen to try it out as I already had the batteries but yeah, eeeesh!

        •  

          The trimmer is this deal is the incredibly crappy trimmer with the plastic blades . Some people seem happy with it but I also found it utterly useless . Good for taking the daisy flowers off the lawn but actual trimming against walls or garden edges is like peeing into the wind .

    Just to be clear; these lines aren’t on clearance; it’s just midland making a store-level decision to clear the last of their units

    $399 for the garden kit - Bunnings Melville this morning

  •  

    Great find OP and lucky people in WA who manage to snag one.

    Is this mower the same as the one sold in Aldi as it certainly looks like it?

    I've had the Aldi one for a couple of years and has worked really well. Mainly use it on the steeper sloping areas and hard to reach parts of the property that is a chore to do with the 21inch petrol.

    The Aldi one cost me $199 on its own so this is a real bargain if same/comparable.

    And if you get multiple batteries when on special (at Aldi the 4Ah often go on clearance at $19) size of block shouldn't matter too much as can swap batteries in/out in seconds.

    •  

      Yes I believe Aldi and Bunnings use the same manufacturer (einhell), however the batteries are not interchangeable

  •  

    Could someone please upload a photo of the 4 pieces set, trying to get local bunning to price match.

  •  

    Anyone knows if there are any pieces left?
