    Dang. This is hitting Ozito prices

      Nah I paid 400 in 2016 for my first brushless set. Same driver/drill no grinder but 3x3amps and charger.

  • +11 votes

    A 3 piece kit with the third piece actually being useful, instead of a filler!

  • +4 votes

    This is a good deal, the angle grinder alone retails for $319. Unfortunately this kit only has the standard charger and 3.0ah batteries, but a good deal nonetheless.

    Thanks OP. Been waiting for a decent kit to turn upon sale.Lets hope it is still available when I go to pick up my online order tomorrow.

    I got this last night and fully didn't pledge to ozbargain incase it was a pricing error.

    This is an amazing price.

    Better even that what was offered for makita powerpass deals right now.

    Damn wish i wasn't already heavily invested in ryobi stuff, gr8 deal

    • +2 votes

      Nothing wrong with Ryobi.. I've built houses with it and they have by far the best range. I've been mowing my lawns with two paralleled 18V Ryobi batteries for 5 years. Same battery powers every single other tool I use.. can't go wrong

      •  

        Hey @Slopshua, what lawn mower do you use? I've got two cheap 18V 5Ah batteries and a charger off of eBay and they work great! Better than the stock 2.5AH one imo. Would be dang nice to have a lawn mower that can use the same batteries.

        •  

          I have an OLM1840H but don't think you can buy one anymore.. Ryobi realised there was more money to be made selling folks a 36V battery to power their mowers so they stopped offering the dual 18V mower. I should correct myself too.. the batteries are run in series to make 36V. I use two 18V 5.0AH batteries to mow ~100sq metres of Buffalo and I still have 2/3 charge left on the batteries. Works great - will never go back to a petrol mower… it's light, fast, clean and you could mow in the middle of the night if you wanted to without pissing the neighbours off 👍

  •  

    Amazing deal. Have the impact driver already and a brushed hammer drill…… so damn tempting.

    •  

      I have only recently "discover" the impact driver.
      But have and used a cordless drill almost since birth …

      What do you use an impact driver for?
      Home use. Other than changing tires.
      Just home use.

      Honestly curious.

      •  

        I use it to drive in Tek screws for fencing or roofing panels. Simple fastening it also works for and I find it useful for its small size when you need to get into tight spaces.

      •  

        Anything that needs fixing with screws

        Curtain rods, blinds, doors, door handles, decking, carport, roofing, fencing, cupboards, shelving, computer cases, car sound systems etc.

        •  

          ThankU 2

          But isn't a bit of an overkill to use it for, say, computer cases?

          Also I'm guessing the torque force can be adjusted as well?
          Like in a common cordless drill when used as an electric screwdriver.

          Bugger … I'm starting to NEED one now.

          •  

            @LFO: On the model in the 2 piece kit for the model DTD148Z has 3 impact staging modes, so yes is variable on some models. Others just have speed control triggers. Small size comes from no clutch so without settings or a good trigger finger it will output its rated torque.

  •  

    are these as good as porter cable?

  •  

    Isn't this a better value?

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/545552

    I was at bunnings earlier and the attendant offered this to me but at 499.

    •  

      It is better value, depends on what you want.

    •  

      Vacuum, radio and case are more novelty than anything else.
      Handy? Maybe. Useful? Not at all.
      For the occasional home use, either one is more than enough.
      Home use warranty Makita 3yr vs AEG 6yr (AEG extended warranty invalid if used for business).
      2x 3Ah batteries are more than enough for a large home reno, especially with these being brushless.
      2x 5Ah batteries would be more useful if you intend to regularly drill into lots of brick, concrete, etc.
      If you can resell the bonus AEG stuff, it'd make it cheaper than the Makita set, but that's if people would buy it I guess

    Is this one possibly better, even though it's $90 more: https://www.bunnings.com.au/makita-lxt-18v-2-piece-li-ion-br...
    It comes with 5.0Ah batteries, a hard case, and the heavy duty version of the drill instead.

    •  

      I saw that as well. The included drills are :

      DHP481Z - 18V Mobile Brushless Hammer Driver Drill
      DTD148Z - 18V Mobile Brushless Impact Driver

      Not sure if the ones in this deal is better.

    •  

      Depends on what you intend to use it for.
      Occasional home use, this kit is more than enough.
      Regular construction work, the kit you linked would be more useful.

    •  

      I've added this to the deal. The combo you linked was $649. Thanks

    •  

      This one much better, I would pay $90 for the extra 2amp increase in battery.

      • -1 vote

        Technically 4amp because its a dual pack for the batteries. Those 5Ah batteries arent cheap either, and run significantly better than the 3Ah.

        •  

          how 4amp?

          • +5 votes

            @kofs2s: Admit my maths isn’t strong, but my somewhat complicated calculation is;

            2 + 2 = 4

            But if we were to expand it out a bit more;

            2 x 3Ah batteries = 6Ah of battery capacity.

            2 x 5Ah batteries = 10Ah of battery capacity.

            10Ah - 6Ah = 4Ah of battery capacity difference.

            …Probably worth someone double checking my numbers here, this is some complicated stuff.

    • +3 votes

      Much better deal for extra $90.

      DHP485Z = 50Nm Max lock torque
      DHP481Z = 125Nm Max lock torque

      DTD148Z = 170Nm of max fastening torque
      DTD148Z = 175Nm of max fastening torque

      Plus batteries would last much longer being 5.0Ah instead of 3.0Ah

      That's an awesome kit

      I've got the LXDT06 impact driver which is an earlier model of the DTD148Z ie. 3 speed settings

      It's made in Japan and has been totally worth the ~$280 I got it from the US several years ago plus I think I had to buy a separate charger and batteries. I've done so many fixing jobs with it like 3 houses worth, a carport etc.

      I wanted a cordless drill so picked up a kit this morning to confirm the DTD148 is made in Japan but unfortunately the DHP481 is made in China

      With the angle grinder I claimed however it's a fantastic overall price!

      Impact driver ~$280
      Drill ~$220
      Charger + Batteries ~$150
      Grinder ~$220

      Total value ~$870

    That drill is an absolute beast. If you don't have some decent guns, i would go for the cheaper drill.

    it sits around 2.3kg if i recall, and can rip your arm off if using one handed and it gets jammed.

    • +1 vote

      Yep I have that drill and can confirm it's an 'arm ripper offerer'. Doing up a nut one day I didnt realise it was in drill mode. Nut stopped and drill kept going with my arm attached. Lucky I have Popeye forearms ;)

      Is heavy and cumbersome for around the house use.

  •  

    Is this useful for general home use? I can understand if you are a person who would say knock down a brick fence and build a new one. For others, when would this be useful?

    • +1 vote

      General home use, this is more than enough. Ryobi is the same as well, one of the good things about Ryobi is that they have a lot of tools using the same battery. So you don't need to buy into a different eco system to get the tools you want.

    •  

      Makita is overkill for general home use imo. You are much better off with Ozito's power range because their pricing is really good value for what you get and is quite reliable these days, esp since they are dirt cheap and all come with 5 year warranty. Makita is targeted towards tradies who use their tools all day long. If you ain't pushing it to it's limits, you're basically throwing money away.

      In saying this, the $500 packaged deal above is a steal because you're literally paying Ozito pricing for the BMW of power tools.

    3Ah battery is more than enough to drill all the holes you need. Definitely don't want a bulky battery on a drill.

  •  

    Is it safe to assume this sale finishes on the 30th?

  •  

    Can you use this impact driver to undo wheel nuts ?

  •  

    Dumb question, is the larger capacity battery (i.e. 5aH) actually translate to more power/torque? or does it simply lasts longer than the smaller 3ah battery? thanks!

    •  

      Its probably due to battery wear but the 5Ah's I use seem to give more current for longer vs the older 3Ah's, even when theyre both fully charged. The difference isnt so noticeable when theyre fresh fresh, but once theyre slightly drained, its quite a bit different. Do note that the 5Ah's are heavier.

    •  

      Yes. While the aH rating is a capacity rating (how long it lasts), the higher aH rated batteries can also typically put out more current which does translate to more power/torque. Some of the higher power tools like cordless saws really need 5aH+ batteries to work well.

    Total tools is selling this Bosch deal BOSCH 18V BRUSHLESS 2 PIECE 2 X 3.0AH COMBO KIT 0615990J4K. Which one is better?

  •  

    You can get a better impact driver and drill set with free angle grinder via redemption for not much more than this, I think I paid $569 about 3 weeks ago bunnings. Hard case also, well worth the extra $$$

  • +1 vote

    I picked up one of these the other day, can't find it on the website but it's in the Catalog.

    $279 for a driver and hammer drill (not the same one as this deal), no case but 5ah battery.

    Suited my needs better.

    I am looking for a kit for my new home, mainly to setup some blinds in the new house and outer patio.
    What would be the best kit? Will these be overkill?
    I would also use them to setup IKEA's tables and other small house tasks.
    Or is there any cheaper kit for my purpose?

  •  

    This is a good comparison video between the major power tool impact drivers. It's worth noting though that the makita driver in the video is the flagship model, not the one in this deal.

    I am crazy, I have the latest set of dewalt, bosch blue, and now makita - all together 20+ tools. Now I understand why my wife want many handbags and shoes.

    •  

      What do you use them for?

      Has your wife used all her handbags, shoes?

    •  

      Is there a reason why your split across multiple ecosystems? For me I have 18V with AEG and my 12V is all Milwaukee.

      •  

        I now have ozitio (5 batts), milwakee 12v and this now, plus an old dewalt converted to ozito lol

        got a shed now too which helps!

        •  

          When I first started out I had Ryobi. Then I got myself a new AEG kit, progressively buying skins along the way (for anyone else, buy a larger kit. In the long run you save money. $2000 kit now compared to spending $3000 or more by adding skins) and then I got gifted a Milwaukee M12 kit, which I have now slowly built up.

      •  

        No reason but ozbargain's way. I forgot I also have the Standley set as well.

        •  

          lol that sounds about right. I try not to get into to many ecosystems. For example all my corded tools are Makita, cordless its AEG and Milwaukee. But i guess if the deal/price is right, there is no harm in buying a different ecosystem.

    I think I picked up the last ones ($500 kit)at oakleigh VIC. Got 2 kits so I can get a couple grinders + batteries too, as since doing a bit of welding and metal work my old ozito drill (40~nm vs 125) just doesnt have enough juice to drill through metal without getting super hot, and the ozitio grinder stalls when cutting though metal the ozitio brushless grinder punches alot hard than the cheap one.

    The chuck on the makita I notices is super straight, no wobbles with a bit in it, unlike all my ozitios ive had.

    Impact driver is made in japan too and is just nice, quality on all the tools is alot better.

    I think if you got plans to do stuff with your gear, the $ saved doesnt really line up as the ozitio system is not cheap when compared to these prices
