Ozito Power X Change Brushless Cordless Drill Driver (Skin Only) $49.90, Brushless Hammer Drill (Skin Only) $79.90 @ Bunnings

740

My first deal post so please be gentle.
It is not on Bunnings website but I saw them in my local Bunnings (Altona VIC). You may want to check your local store to try your luck.

I assume they dropped down price to match the Aldi deal coming soon.

Brushless Cordless Drill Driver (Skin Only) 6290547 018.0020037 PXBDS-220 $49.90
Brushless Hammer Drill (Skin Only) 6290548 018.002
0035 PXBHS-100 $79.90

By the way, I also picked up the last one in store from this deal.
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/537229

Please note this post is for Skin Only so you may need battery as well if you don't have any yet.
I have checked the batteries & chargers sold separately but they are not on special price yet.

I also spotted stock from previous deal. However, the price here is $119
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/525346
Still great deal in my opinion as it comes with dual charger and 2 x 3AH batteries.
I personal bought the skin only for $80 a few months ago and the single charger & 2 x 3AH battery for $69 last August.

      still have 4 new 4ah batteries in boxes i got for $29 each a few months ago

      •  

        So no need to recharge them? Leaving them in the boxes for months ok or not? Does it have impact on battery life?

        • +1 vote

          Li-ion will have a shelf life in the box - probably safe for about a year so so comfortably from when made… more if kept in suitable conditions (cool 15 to 20 degrees I think? and dry). After which there could be a decline in battery life the longer it goes on or if it gets too hot etc. I personally wouldn't leave it more than 2 years max from date of manufacture without putting into a charge/use cycle (then don't leave them completely flat ever, and its best not to leave them fully charged either - about 40% to 50% is best). They are better than many other battery types though, and can last 10 years if treated properly.

    •  

      The black box 4AH ones are $39 now if you can find stock.

      •  

        Yep. Cheers. I've already grabbed four :)

    Are the brushless worth the upgrade?

      Everyday use..upgrade no, paying more for initial purchase, yes (longer battery life, consistent torque through varying speed).

      i have the cordless drill driver and its really powerful. i use my normal 18v drill to make pilot holes and the drill driver makes those screws their little bitch. well worth it + you can use it to do undo most bolts on your car/motorbike with a socket attachment (best to use a breaker bar to untighten then use the drill driver, works great in my experience.)

      • -1 vote

        I am doing exactly the same with my old Ozito cordless drill driver. Make pilot holes first, change bits and put in screws. However, maybe I should use the impact driver for long strews.

        • +1 vote

          just buy the normal drill or another impact, it saves so much time.

      •  

        Is a drill driver the same as impact driver?

        •  

          nah. impact has more torque, drill driver has 55nm vs 150nm for the impact. i have the impact too and its great.

        •  

          No.

          This video explains the difference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVMwp4Hm7OQ

          • +1 vote

            @trongy: I still don't get the point of an impact driver. my take away from that video was save the money on the impact driver and spend it on a better battery. The drill driver - whilst maybe needing slightly more effort, is way more versatile. both struggled with a low powered battery.

    They must be taking the price match deals off the website so that people can't go hogging them all with click and collect?
    Not to mention the usual marketing ploy of making people rocking up the store meaning they might walk out with some extra unplanned purchases … just like me! >_< LOL

    • +1 vote

      On the contrary, my case is often i see the deal online (i.e. i can confirm it is available in the store near me) so that I'll rush to bunnings before they are sold out and then ended up with some extra unplanned purchases.

      With the social distancing, unless I'm certain the deal is available at the store near me, I wouldn't just wander by to see if it is available…

      I also saw the other day Ozito PXC Chainsaw + Sharpener + Charger & 3AH battery for $199.
      I believe that was not the brushless version.
      Not sure why there was only one battery in the kit as I thought it may need 2 x 18V.

      • +1 vote

        That likely would have been the cheaper brushed model that takes the single battery underneath.

        The brushless 36v model is superior (and not in any combos I've seen) and has two batteries in front of the trigger vertically instead

    • +3 votes

      Yeah I've got the bigger 2x battery brushless one. Admittedly I've never owned a petrol chainsaw before, but have found it to be very capable for my uses.

    • +3 votes

      If it wasn't for the fact that I don't need another chainsaw (yet), then @SteveandBelle's feedback in one of the prior posts (along with the pic in the prior deal) had convinced me of its merits.

      Just as long as you go for the dual-battery brushless one, and NOT the single-battery model that's usually in the combo deals.

        Glad to have helped Switchblade :) I've since heard a story from a neighbour who bought one after trying mine that he let a rural fire/rescue dept have a go of his and they were so impressed that they bought a few to add to the artillery… not to replace existing saws but as a decent & affordable 'spark-free' choice to prevent accidental spot fires when using regular petrol saws… so there you go!

      • +2 votes

        I have a small single-battery chainsaw, slow but that means minimal kickback, so can be safely used single-handed for pruning, while the other hand keeps me from falling off the ladder.

    • +2 votes

      If your after something that will prune some tree limbs occasionally it will be fine. If your thinking of getting a load of wood with it, it’s not going to work. As with most cheap cutting things replace the chain with a decent one it will be much better. That being said I have This brushless hammer and driver it’s been going strong for 3 years now, and they are still as good as the day I bought them. They haven’t had an easy life either.

      They are pretty rare now. Ozito have widened the range enough that they are the go-to for the price match. At least it's not XU1 :P

      •  

        I got an XU1 grinder for under $20 15+ years ago. Its done a dozen bathroom reno's and kms of fencing and still going strong. She gets super hot, but never stops.

        I actually went to Bunnings tonight to buy the Ozito brushless SDS, but bought an XU1 again instead.

  •  

    Hi could anyone kindly suggest pick up this impact drill or the aldi's impact wrench. I recnon impact drill is a bit more all rounder than impact wrench but not sure if there is indeed any actual difference apart from torque output ( wrench may be a overkill for normal motorcycle nut ? )

    • +5 votes

      Please kindly note the tool in this post is not a impact driver if that’s what you are after.
      Ozito brushless impact driver is $99 normal price when I checked my store today. I spent $49 last year during special and of course I haven’t even opened the box yet.

      Get the Ozito impact driver, as you can always exchange with guaranteed stock on the shelf.

      If you need to use it for undoing nuts, get a set of hex to square drive adapters on eBay for $5.40 and keep it with your socket set.

          Using a hammer drill to drill into masonry of next to useless; it's really slow and inaccurate. Don't bother. If you actually want to drill into masonry you want a rotary hammer that takes SDS bits.

          • +1 vote

            @askvictor: I did it before but yeah it was really slow and hard. It was an one off job though, so if it's your 1st drill and you hardly use SDS hammer, a fake hammer drill is worth considering.

            • +2 votes

              @nfr: True, though given you can get a (corded) cheapie rotary hammer for $80, I don't think it's worth getting a (fake) hammer drill (instead of a non-hammer) 'just in case' you might need to drill into masonry. Just get the rotary hammer when you need it, and then you've got it for that occasion every few years when you need it.

              Or even better, borrow one from a friend or neighbour, or find your local tool library or men's shed! Or at least when these sorts of things start to tell reopen

      Get the hammer drill if you can afford it. More value for money.

      The hammer function is handy if you have to drill into masonry (bricks, stones etc).

      The only downside is it's bigger than the drill driver so maybe not as portable for long jobs.

          Well that's difficult to answer without knowing exactly what you'll be using it for and how often. Just weeding once every few months or maybe using it for pest control once/twice a year or fertilsing every now & then or are you planning to use it to actually water plants?!? On top of that do you already have other Ozito tools and/or a pressure sprayer?

          •

              @Niroshansira: Yep, should be good to go then. Obviously different if you only wanted to use it once a year or you didn't already have Ozito PXC batteries. Mine's good but I still also use my $6 pressure sprayer with great success sobits really down to the need & purpose.

    I was bummed to miss out on the Bosch deal from a few weeks ago (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/534533). I haven't got any power tools or batteries yet so I'm not tied to any particular vendor. I'll be using for DIY renovations around the house mainly but could be anything from building a deck to hanging pictures. What's the general consensus on Ozito tools? Are they good quality or just a good deal because they're generally cheaper than the bigger brands?

    One other question - I plan to get an impact driver when I see one on sale (the Bosch deal would have been perfect). If I were to buy one of the skins in this deal should I get the hammer drill over the drill driver because it offers that extra functionality?

    •  

      I personal own a few Ozito tools I think they are low end cheap plastic ones most of the time. Having said that it is good enough & value for money for me for DIY jobs like IKEA furniture plus garden work.
      I would prefer the new Bosch deal if I am not committed to the cheap Ozito batteries I already have.

        I built a 6.5x3m deck with Ozito 18v tools. They handled the job no probs. Drilled and screwed over 1200 screws and they handled it with ease. Used an Ozito drop saw for the main cut but also use an Ozito 18V circular saw for simple cuts. I have the 5 piece kit and the only one I think is useless is the angle grinder. Anyone who knocks them probably hasn’t used them before. They offer impressive bang for buck.

          Grinder isn't powerful, but is EXCEEDINGLY portable compared to a corded one.

          Easily my most used tool!

          I too agree with eciuji. I've used a lot of Ozito tools over a 5 year period doing various reno work and they've held up well. I own a Bosch blue drill and driver combo and as I use them daily I wouldn't cheap out there, but in saying that I don't have experience with Ozito drill and drivers. I do own two Ozito drop saws, reciprocating saw, track saw, circular saw and multi tool. They are all great. The circular saw is a little cheap feeling compared to my battery Bosch circular saw, but it does the job. When I have had any issues they've replaced them without any trouble. I haven't tried any of their battery tools but am considering. I'll see what offers are available come tax time.

      • +6 votes

        Agree with Eciuj. I've now gone nearly all Ozito PXC and I'm renovating an entire 115 year old timber workers cottage with it all. Yes some of the original Ozito PXC tools could've been better but their newer current models are great and will only continue to improve too. It's actually a bit of a badge of honor telling/showing people through the renovated half of the house then letting them see the tools I've been using ;) Some comment, others don't and others think I'm an idiot bit hey, it's all doing exactly what I need it to do for less than the price of ONE of my high-end branded tools that catastrophically failed on me a few years ago.

    • +3 votes

      I would definitely get the hammer drill over the drill driver. That way you can drill into masonry if required.

      I have some Ozito tools and I would say they are more than capable. Probably not good enough to use everyday if you're a professional. However, for the average DIY weekend warrior, it will do the job. It could easily be used to build decks and hang pictures.

      Plus the warranty is great. 5 years for tools and 3 years for batteries. If it ever breaks on you, just take the receipt to Bunnings and they'll replace it.

      So much I could comment on.
      But Ozito aren't even "cheap". There's turd much cheaper.
      Honestly, just grab a heap of Ozito when-you-need-it, though.
      There's a time and place for everything Ozito & above.

    Is it this one, can someone please confirm. I am looking for buying a drill for DIY proj (weekend DIY warrior ) https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-pxc-brushless-hammer-drill...

    Also can i use this hammer drill to multi task and drill holes into the tree stump and use hand saw to cut it down (15-20 cms in diameter ) rather than buying chain saw for one time use.

    Hammer drill makes more sense to be used in other task so wanted to ask the question.

    • +1 vote

      Your link is the combo kit, the pic is for the skin only with no battery. Combo kit isn't on sale though.

      You can definitely use the brushless drill for helping pull the tree down, but the hammer function will only be needed to drill in bricks and concrete.

      If you're going to get a couple of tools and batteries, there might be a better combo kit to get with bigger batteries (3Ah is ideal) and a charger.
