    What Aldi sale?

    I have this, it does the job well. I managed to get pick one up on the clearance table in bunnings for $35 including a battery which I was so happy about.

    Shame it's only 180Nm. Barely an upgrade from the brushed version (which I have 3 of).

  •  

    Oh, the hammer drill is the greatest single Ozito power tool that I own. It's got a higher torque than the impact driver as well.
    Only thing you'll need is an SDS chuck. I got a fantastic metal one from AliExpress.

    •  

      how did you replace it? Or just put one inside the other?

    • +1 vote

      Impact drivers are great though because they are so short and sufficiently wieldy. Much more so than a hammer drill…

    • +1 vote

      What SDS chuck did you get from Ali?

    •  

      From the specifications sheet in the manual the torque is nowhere near as high as their brushless impact driver. Torque / Max. Torque: 21 / 55Nm

      In the brushless manual for the impact driver it's 180

      •  

        I haven't used the brushless one, but it definitely screws in screws that the brushed one can't and that's supposedly rated at 150Nm.
        I don't have an explanation as to why that's the case, but it is.

        • +1 vote

          Maybe you aren’t using your impact driver correctly or it’s faulty. For impact drivers you can let the driver do the work don’t push and let it do that clicky thing.

        •  

          Then your unit has a problem because it doesn't push out anywhere near the power even the brushed model has

    • +1 vote

      There's no way the hammer drill will have a higher torque rating than the impact driver. It will also drive screws/bolts slower. Another thing is the impact driver won't have any kick back making it safer and avoid stripping screw heads.

      • +1 vote

        See above.
        The hammer drill actually turns very slowly if you're easy on the trigger. I haven't stripped a screw with it yet.
        I obviously don't have the hammer function on when I use it.

    •  

      Sorry, I should clarify, I actually meant the rotary hammer, not the hammer drill in the link above!

  •  

    d'oh about the price as I paid for my normal brushed Ryobi impact driver.

  •  

    Is an impact driver actually that useful over a regular drill? Back when I had a 12V drill set I never picked up the impact over the drill driver for any particular task.

    Already have the brushless drill driver.

    •  

      Depends if you Max out your current Torque. Basically unless you're having trouble driving into certain services or removing screws from certain services you probably don't need one.

    •  

      I made do for yonks with just a hammer drill. I haven't done anything requiring that much torque to need an impact driver, but it does do an easier job of driving screws and gives you a second tool to not have to change between drilling and driving bits.

      It's certainly useful but if you're short on pennies or would rather buy something else you can get by without one.

      If you've only got the drill-driver you're better off putting the money into a hammer drill imo

  •  

    How would the brushless hammer compare with Ryobi?

  •  

    Anyone know if the brushless impact driver would be good enough for undoing wheel nuts?
    180Nm sounds low… But I dont know if the brushless part helps much.

    I already have the brushed version of this ozito impact driver and it's useless for automotive nuts removal.

    Yes I know it's not a rattle gun… But impact drivers are more versatile…

      I would say no. None of my mates would dare

      I've tried with brushless makita impact driver (180nm) and no luck with lug nuts and such

      •  

        I borrowed a neighbour's Makita brushless impact driver and it got the job done where my ozito brushed couldn't.
        I even tried a breaker bar and couldn't get it to loosen (this was on a motorcycle drive nut)

      •  

        I have tried with an older non PXC Ozito and no good on lug nuts, unless you want to loosen them first but why bother? The tool was 79 bucks to match Aldi in the last sale

    • +3 votes

      No way, an air rattle gun is 3-400Nm and can have trouble….

    • +1 vote

      I would say no…unless you're doing them up with a torque wrench every time.

      The only thing in the Ozito range would be their impact wrench with 215Nm of max torque but no idea what kind of breakaway torque it is capable of. At a guess, even that's too small. I use a beefy DeWalt but that's a rather large, heavy, expensive thing lol.

      •  

        Good point.

        I noticed other impact drivers mention 'fastening torque' not break away torque.

    •  

      Get a 1/2" impact wrench, they're great and very versatile. The ozito one is 215Nm, which will undo wheel nuts if they've been put on properly. Keep in mind that a lot of people just put on wheel nuts as hard as possible - if you can't get it off with 215Nm it's either corroded or been put on too tight to start with. For example most Toyota models call for around 100Nm.

      •  

        The stupid mechanics over torqued the wheel nuts of my car. I used a cross brace and 1m long breaker bar with lots of force to undo them. It actually twisted the cross brace

    •  

      the aldi impact wrench @ 350nm a short while back would have been your best option

    For the Brushless Hammer Drill Kit, I need to install some curtain railings, which means I need to drill into some bricks, would that be powerful enough for the job?

    • +2 votes

      Bricks? Yup. But if you already have a non-hammer drill, get this rotary instead.

      •  

        I dont have any drills at the moment so this will be my first one. Thanks for the link.

        More for usage around the house, I wont be drilling too much into bricks.

      •  

        What are the pros of the rotary over the hammer drill above? I'm pretty clueless.

        • +2 votes

          If you drill into masonry/concrete a lot, then a rotary will make easy work of that as they are more powerful.

        •  

          Make the hammer look like a toy. Chew through brick/concrete like butter, in comparison. Horses for courses, though. We don't all need the best,when considering the cost.

          •  

            @AssangesCat: Does a rotary hammer do nice clean holes? I think I read someone complaining his rotary hammer do a messy job, with brick chips everywhere

            • +1 vote

              @nfr: Yup, bits go straight in like butter, even more so if they are new. That guy might have also put too much pressure when drilling, with a rotary let it do the work.

  •  

    It seems to be better than the Aldi one, but I wonder if this combo is also better than the STANLEY FATMAX FMCK467D2-XE18V Brushless Hammer Drill + Impact Driver Combo Kit at its lowest price ($165.74). Or, from the 'best value' perspective, which I imagine many Ozbargainers would care about, I better go with the second-hand commercial grade ones from Gumtree or eBay? I'm not in a hurry and can wait until the next sale from Amazon or something popping up on Gumtree.

    • +2 votes

      I would go with Ozito over the Aldi/Workzone one simply for the fact that the batteries support a larger range of tools and you can easily pop in to any Bunnings if you need to grab a tool for another job rather than waiting for Aldi to stock it.
      I have no doubt the Fatmax is better quality but it's also more expensive. How often does it come up at $165? It depends how much you're going to use it. Both the Ozito and Workzone have 5 year replacement warranties so if it's only for odd jobs around the house, they'll be fine.

    • +1 vote

      Second hand commercial grade from tradies = already stuffed.

  •  

    I am planning on picking up both the hammer and impact so what would be a good drill bits set to cover just home DIY jobs?

    •  

      I also need to know this if someone can answer please?

    • +2 votes

      If this is your first drill/driver and you only want to do basic DIY tasks around the home then I'd recommend one of these Ryobi sets for $30 as they have a good range of drill bits but also a big selection of driver bits too.

      •  

        thanks bud!

        • +1 vote

          No worries. Please note that none of the drill bits in that particular kit are designed for hammer/masonry use. I recommend purchasing individual masonry bits as you need them.

          • +4 votes

            @SteveAndBelle: Just to be clear, in case any first timers are unawares, there are two basic types of normal drill bits: tungsten carbide masonry drill bits, and HSS (high speed steel) drill bits.

            The masonry drill bits are used for drilling in mortar/bricks/pavers/concrete/stone/tiles etc. They can be used with or without the hammer function. (Generally with, as it's faster/requires less effort.)

            The HSS drill bits are used for drilling in metal/wood/plastic/etc and should never be used with the hammer function.

            Some materials, like fibre cement/gyprock sheeting and plasterboard, are sort of in-between. A masonry bit will work but may result in a imprecise/ragged hole, whereas a HSS bit will leave a cleaner hole but result in the bit going blunt quicker. (Possibly a lot quicker.)

            Using a HSS drill bit where a masonry one is required will most likely ruin it1 and is not likely to work, or work well.

            A masonry drill bit used inappropriately will maybe sort of work and not be damaged on the softer materials, but not work and possibly be blunted on the harder metals.


            1. If the hammer function is used, the drill bit will most likely be permanently damaged. Otherwise, it could most likely be restored with a serious, proper resharpening.

              @jas2u: Had to jump in, the advice you ha e been getting is fine, however so eould be giving a shout out to Aldi workzone masonary bits. Basically a se that rangea from 5 to 10mm and includes I think 8 bits (some doubles) has been great for me. I have used craftright masonary bits and they are cheap but suck, but they are cheap. The aldi ones have lasted years.

              Also if you are a DIYer and not taking on big jobs, you can save a fair bit of money with just a standard 13mm chuck ratherr than an sds one, as sds bits are more expensive. Worth looking into at least

  •  

    Why do they say diy only…. Whilst the other brands ryobi rockwell do not

    •  

      They do, just in other forms.
      From Ryobi - "the RYOBI impact driver is the perfect addition to any DIY enthusiast’s toolbox." and from the terms and conditions on their website "This manufacturer’s warranty only covers Ryobi products that have been used for Do It Yourself (DIY) purposes."

      •  

        How can they prove it wasn't uaed for diy

        Guess they could check your tax records to see if it wa claimed as a work expense -___-

          If you use a trade account to buy it I presume.

        •  

          It's as much a warning that you won't get trade performance/durability as a protection for them. If you were using for trade you'd possibly be wanting/needing to replace it every couple of months, they might catch on you're not using for DIY then. Tradie contractors are super rough on tools they don't own.

  • +3 votes

    Ok, I'll chime in too but everyone already knows what I'll say :) I have both of these and have used them very heavily during a DIY resto/reno of a timber workers cottage over the last few years and they've been brilliant. Sure, the drill has cut out a few times when boring 25mm holes through the original 110+ year old hardwood frame and I've hit the limits of the impact driver when attempting to unscrew vintage coach screws from various things but overall these two Ozito tools are excellent value for money even at the normal price so for this price they're a true bargain!

    •  

      I know this Ozito kit is excellent value for its price and very popular, but there’s still a few saying it’s not as ‘comfortable’ or ‘controllable’ as some other higher brands. I wonder how true it is, and whether it means a Makita or DeWatt driver will make the job easier for DYI newbies?

      • +3 votes

        Not sure why they're saying that. I'm no hardcore builder or anything but those thoughts have never crossed my mind when using my Ozito gear and I've used plenty of other brands in the past too. For the money maybe buy this Ozito stuff now while it's on sale then go out and also buy a Makita and/or Dewalt and decide for yourself! I assume you're looking at buying these because you have a specific project in mind?

        •  

          I’d only buy these for odd jobs around the house. And thanks for your comment. It give me more confidence to go ahead with the Ozito :)

          • +1 vote

            @GreenRomeo: Well yes, you've answered your own question :) Even if the Ozito is uncomfortable/uncontrollable (which I've never experienced) then it probably wont really effect you if you're just using it for odd jobs here & there anyway. All I recommend you do is keep the battery topped up so chuck it/them on the charger once every few months then store them away in a clean & dry environment until you need to use them. Letting them discharge too much due to lack of use or leaving them on the charger isn't recommended for a few reasons.

            •  

              @SteveAndBelle: Thanks for the advice. I’ll make sure to take care of the battery properly.

              @SteveAndBelle:

              All I recommend you do is keep the battery topped up so chuck it/them on the charger once every few months

              huh? That is the opposite of the recommended way to store lithium ion batteries (do not store long term at 100%). I deliberately keep mine all around 2-3 bar (to guesstimate 60-80% capacity) as who knows how long until I use them next - but still plenty of capacity left for the odd job if it comes up.
              Worst case tool battery chargers are so fast these days just get out the kit an hour beforehand and charge it up to full, or charge up the other to full while using the other battery.

              •  

                @dufflover: I see your point however I was going more on the issue in GreenRomeos case regarding leaving them sit for too long letting them discharge below a reasonable point and therefore destroying them. I've got a bunch of Ozito tools & batteries at a family members house purely for me to use for projects when I'm there so I don't have to lug my tools over each time. I visit once every few months and most of the time I don't even need to use the tools but I do get the batteries out, put them on the charger to make sure they're still all good to go then put them back in storage until the next visit. I've been doing that for over 2 years now and the batteries are still in perfect working order!

                •  

                  @SteveAndBelle: In your defence you are also probably using your tools a lot. More than the avg DIYer.

                  I would say though that anyone thinking of getting a hammer drill for odd drilling jobs should first consider getting an old school corded hammer drill with a 13mm metal chuck. You can pick one up for 15 bucks, never worry about batteries and as long as you can get a cable to the site you are fine. Anyone who doesnt have one of these should absolutely buy one first as it will be more powerful and less likely to leave you stranded (but I assume you have 5 already :))

      •  

        I've been using my drills every weekend on random DIY stuff, so ended up buying some DeWalt gear at ozbargain prices. The main thing I notice over my Ryobi drills is not the drilling, but everything else:
        - The impact driver is easier to change bits (just stick it in)
        - The lights are brighter and stay on longer
        - The belt hook and magnetic bit holders are great
        I also believe that if you're building a up tool collection, not sticking to one brand means you can snag more bargains. I snapped up a Dewalt cordless jigsaw for cheaper than a Ryobi.

  •  

    Yay. I'd been putting off installing new brake roters because i'm too lazy to undo the bolts. :)

  •  

    Would this be overkill if I'm only using it to drive screws for IKEA stuffs?

    •  

      Absolute overkill, yes. IKEA furniture should really only be assembled by hand… unless you're building hundreds of units for some reason and in that case you should look at a much simpler & less powerful tool anyway.
