Ozito PXC 18V Grass Trimmer Kit (Includes Charger and 2.5ah Battery) $29 @ Bunnings [One Per Customer]

5870

Note: Price online has increased to $79, but is being sold for $29 in store

$29 for cordless whipper snipper , 2.5ah battery and fast charger.

I've paired this with the $159 ozito battery mower and $29 jet blower and couldn't be happier with the product (considering the price)
knocked over my 150sqm backyard and 100sqm front yard.

Looks like Bunnings is matching Aldi's mower and whipper snipper kit.

  • Word of caution: please look up reviews and make your own judgement.

    Anyone else can vouch for the quality?

    • i have this one, the quality is Ok. the only issue is the Trimmer Blades included are made by plastic and you can break it easily.

      For $29 with battery+charger - worth the experiment, even if buyer is cheaping out. Doesn't Bunnings is a return policy if you don't like the product?

        Bunnings doesn't have a returns policy if you simply don’t like it! Please please please do your research and make sure that the item fits your requirements.

        • Change of mind returns/exchanges
          We are pleased to offer change of mind returns or exchanges.

          Looks like they do to me?

          Edit: although must be in a resalable condition

          • @kcbworth: Change of mind returns:
            "All returned goods must be unused, in original packaging and in saleable condition."

            Though, they are probably more relaxed about it in practice as many here have returned used items.

            @kcbworth: Exactly it has to be in as new condition. If you’ve used it once, it’s not faulty but you don’t want it, Bunnings shouldn’t have to return it. If you abuse us you usually get your way but that’s incredibly sad.

            Many customers buy products against our advice and then wish to return them because they didn’t do the job. We knew it wouldn’t! We told you it wouldn’t.

            Disheartening.

        • I have returned things before I did not like in original packaging before. No issues

        • Why so many upvotes for a false statement??

          Bunnings does accept change of mind. Of course it has to be in a resellable condition which is totally in line with common sense

        • They do. I have returned a couple of things including LED Globe and a Tool kit (unopened and sealed).

        • This is NOT true.

        • I saw a guy at the bunnings returns area once trying to return a mop that had "never been used"… The clerk questioned the guy when she touched it and the mop was wet… she still accepted the return lol

      • I'm sure if the product is not fit for purpose and breaks, then that should count, amirite?

        • So what you are saying is if I buy a line trimmer and the line keeps breaking then I should be able to return it back, not just to Bunnings but any shop that I got the trimmer from?

        • @RocketSwitch yes… However chewing through a consumable item because you went too hard against the fence/brick/footpath isn't considered breaking, and (loosely) if you were "doing edges" then it's fit-for-purpose.

          @craving not quite… If you buy line trimmer just for slashing tall grass, and your line continues to break whilst the manufacturer/packaging/sales staff claims/told you/led you to believe it would do so without breaking line, then yes…

          It is my understanding of the ACL (not from a legal education standpoint, but my interpretation having had to deal with some serious claims made against the ACL during my employment), that returning this line trimmer because the plastic cutting tines keep breaking doesn't fall under this claim because they'd be considered a consumable item, and are expected to break through normal use (and for this very reason probably state something to similar effect in the product documentation).

          • @nashak: Expected to break through normal use, however, there's an expectation it would last for some time. Life expectancy should be decent enough.

            My Black+Decker one is plastic, hasn't broken yet in 3 years of monthly use.

      • Of course, if it is not fit for purpose and doesn't perform as expected then according to ACL, you should get a replacement or refund.

        Even if it is in used condition.

    • Second the cheap quality of the blade, if you so much as hit something hard it can quite quickly damage the plastic blade

    • I have it but don't really use it. It's alright but can't handle anything too thick or strong. Good for quick lawn manicures but you'll need something better if you want to do some real weed wacking.

      My neighbour loaned me his, and this is like the Cheap printer but expensive print consumables.

      They will get you on the blades.

      To 'test' the quality I tried trimming a bunch of stuff that shouldn't be trimmed. And a few things that should.

      I recorded the shenanigans.

      I found it pretty hard to break the blades.

  • For a small home owner wanting to trim some edges it'll do the job but don't expect to be cutting anything higher than a couple inches.

    Last week, the Ozito PXC 18V 2.0ah Lithium-Ion Battery $25 deal got 95 upvotes.
    For $4 more, this deal gets you a 2.5ah battery and fast charger plus bonus grass trimmer.

  • Hey Sapper50,

    How do you find the Makita? I saw someone across the road using one the other day and it looked weak.

    I've got other Makita 18v tools, and love them, but compared with my petrol one I cannot believe how many times the guy needed to go over the one spot to get anywhere.

    Pax

    • The Matika one out of the box is very weak as it comes with very thin rubbish whipper snipper line.

      I replaced with the cheapest ($4) 2.4mm line ( https://www.bunnings.com.au/saxon-15m-trimmer-line-2-4mm_p33... ) and it's a beast.
      I need to wear safety glasses now.

      I have used it with both a 3.0ah and a 5ah battery and does the job fine.

      The thicker line makes a HUGE difference.

      The whipper snipper it's is great. I abuse the crap out of it (like I do all my makita tools) and years later still runs fine.

  • I have this, recently replaced with a proper line trimmer as it breaks too many blades. Works well enough and long enough if you are happy with buying a lot of blade replacements.

    • Do you bought a line trimmer unit or modify the head and replace it with line trimmer head?

      • I bought a new line trimmer (Worx). If you have a 3d printer you can apparently print a fitting that just holds a short piece of line.

    • I have had numerous Ozito cordless power tools and this is the only one that I regretted buying - for all the reasons already posted. The plastic blades don't like hitting hard surfaces, which makes it less than useful for trimming along fences, paths, garden beds lined with bricks/pavers etc. When you use it against hard surfaces the blades wear quickly and break easily or fly off, so you're constantly refitting dislodged blades or replacing them. So it might be cheap to buy but be prepared for the ongoing cost of the replacement blades, which you'll need plenty of. The trimmer itself is only good for light duty (no good for slashing), trimming grass/weeds not adjacent to hard surfaces. I ended up taking to recycle centre at local tip and bought the Ozito line trimmer. It's a lot more expensive but works great.

      The best value here is the battery and charger!

    Seems like a cheap way to enter the Ozito PXC battery range with the included battery + charger.

  • Can I use this to cut my neighbour's grass?

  • I mainly use the trimmer against my brick fence, would these plastic blades just break hitting against that?
