Description from Bunnings site :

18V Compact Drill Driver
18V Impact Driver
4.0Ah Battery and Compact Fast Charger Included
This cordless Compact Drill and Impact Driver kit from Ozito’s Power X Change range is perfect for a multitude of DIY jobs around the home. The drill driver is great for drilling holes and fastening screws, whilst the impact driver is a champion at driving bolts and screws. Pair the two together to power through a range of jobs such as building a deck, installing gutters, or assembling furniture. With a keyless chuck on the drill driver and quick-connect chuck on the impact driver, accessory changes are quick and easy. The integrated LED worklights in both tools provide visibility in low light areas, whilst the sure grip handles and variable speed triggers provide comfort and control while you work. The included 18V 4.0Ah battery and compact fast charger means you can pair these with some appropriate bits and you’ll be able to get started straight away.

      Return it then buy it again .

      As above….but, Even if you've opened yours, buy a new one and return the new one using the old receipt.

      If I had a dollar for everytime I'd done this I could pay for this drill. You'll be much happier knowing you've paid $79.

      •  

        I am keen to try this.
        But can I just ask the Bunnings staff nicely to refund the difference?

          i'd honestly just do the above. What you're asking sounds like more effort for them lol

            @Arty.R: Agree. Buy new one at self-checkout or tools desk, and then walk to returns desk and return it on the old receipt. Easy for everyone

    I am yet to start buying tools. Was thinking of starting with Ryobi one+ ecosystem as they have great varities. But this looks very tempting. What do you guys suggest? For basic home use and car polishing etc.

    • +8 votes

      Ozito is fine for home use. I started with Ryobi but since have mostly bought ozito, especially when its on sale. They have a warrenty and are cheap enough to chuck out if they manage to keep that long.

      • +3 votes

        Indeed, I've got a ozito circular saw an ozito drop saw……. I have punished those saws well beyond what they were built to do and yet they still keep going and going.

      •  

        Yep same, i started with 2 ryobi tools and have then bought another 3 ozito tools on special. And now i have 5 tools collecting dust in my garage. Seriously considering purchasing this pack to make it 7 tools in total.

      I own about 10 of the ozito tools and have had no issues with any of them

    • +1 vote

      You have 5 years guaranteed and probably much longer. Well and truly robust enough for home use.
      No worries at all.

      •  

        I agree, but if I want to buy something else to use with the same battery, then Ryobi offers so many varities thats lacking in the ozito ecosystem! Thats my concern :)

        • +3 votes

          All the OZITO PXC batteries are interchangeable- same as Ryobi. Any size, any tool. Ryobi is good but a little overpriced compared to this for home use.
          Only thing, for my main drill, I would get the brush-less motor one with the larger chuck. They are better

        • +1 vote

          Yep you are right, I have an extensive range of Ozito cordless tools but still think that in the long run the Ryobi is better choice and bigger batteries.
          (they have a lot of tool/gadgets that you can use for camping (spot lights, string lights, misting fan ect) or hobbies (soldering, rotary tool etc) that unfortunately Ozito lacks and their batteries go up to 9AH)
          But for these benefits be prepared to pay up to 30% more then RRP. (ozito can be up to 50% cheaper if you wait for sales)

          •  

            @gtech: I ended up buying this deal, was so cheap compared to One+, could not resist :D I was actually thinking for One+ Brushless Drill driver with battery and that was upto 269! Couldnt make up my mind to spend so much for very little use. And then came this offer, lol.

    • +1 vote

      Just think about if you would like to pay the price for other skins after the first set. For Ozito, just buy whatever you need/want, Ryobi, emmm sometime I will think if I have any workaround first.

    Waiting for a brushless hammer drill to match the Aldi's sale.

    •  

      Same. I have a bit of DIY pending based on how Bunnings plays their hand. Otherwise its Aldi's at 8AM on a Saturday

      • +1 vote

        For diy uses, brushed is good enough, also easier to fix if out of warranty.

        •  

          whats the difference?

          •  

            @furythree: From a quick google search.

            The difference between brushless and brushed drills comes down to the motor. Brushless drills use magnets to generate power. Brushed drills use carbon brushes to create movement. Brushed drills use friction which creates heat, but brushless drills are frictionless, so they generate less heat. This makes them more efficient and reliable.

      I got the ozito cordless brushless hammer drill when it was $99 a couple of months back. Severely disappointed that it couldnt drill through brick. Thought i could chuck out my old corded black and decker hammer drill. So the ozito is all boxed up waiting to be returned.

      •  

        Wow. I assumed that brick would be exactly what that drill was good for.

        I haven’t used a cordless to drill into brick yet. Assumed with a good enough bit, that the bit was the biggest deal.

        What actually happened when you tried??

        •  

          It just didnt have enough power and couldnt punch through the wall

          •  

            @georgedn: You or the drill didn't have power? I have a double brick home and have used it hundreds of times to drill through brick, and with a little effort, no problem.

        get a rotary hammer drill to do the job

        • +2 votes

          This. For brick and concrete nothing beats a rotary hammer. You can score a second hand Bosch Hammer for as low as $50 if you don't need it to be cordless.

          •  

            @bio: Makes you wonder why they bother with the "hammer" function on mobile drills. Adds size, weight and cost with minimal benefit. Shortens tool's lifespan too. But these are always in kits!

            •  

              @Sneaky1: Hammer drills work fine on materials like hollow bricks, which is used to build inner walls in some other countries (I believe mainly European ones). They are mostly useless for solid brick outside (not powerful enough)/plasterboard inside (overkill) houses we have in Australia.

        Did you use a masonry bit, George?

        • +1 vote

          Yep :) same drill bit worked on the corded drill. But hey, maybe i was doing something wrong. Would be interested to know if anyone has used it successfully on brick. Would be delighted if i could get it to do its job.

          • +2 votes

            @georgedn: I've gone through brick with the ozito hammer drill without issue. I did have to use a smaller drill bit first (maybe 8mm?) and then go to a larger 12mm for the holes I needed though. What size bit were you using?

            •  

              @NigelTufnel: Thanks, good to know. Maybe will give it another shot with different drill bits. Think it was about 6mm. The kit came with the two batteries so it did seem a shame to let go of a cheap drill (provided it works!)

              • +1 vote

                @georgedn: Yes, that the one I got too. Does the trick for me. OK maybe not as much juice as a corded one but hey, pretty good for cordless/

    •  

      Was thinking this too. People buying this as their first drill for occasional DIY at least get a hammer drill.

      Not that I've used Ozito drills but I agree the idea of the brushless model is not about needing brushless but because they might build it a little bit better overall.

    •  

      I don't think bunnings has an issue moving brushless stuff when on discount vs Aldi, the last time they matched brushless rotary hammer, stores ran out on the day ….. that also means buyers who wanted one to do a job at normal price couldn't get one …………the brushed stuff bunnings has by the pallet, brushless they seem to keep less shelf stock.

      Ryobi is overall better, but I find them a bit "in the middle" (i.e. quality vs value). Entry level Makita kits start from $299.

  • +4 votes

    Note that the drill has a 10mm chuck.
    So if you intend on using bigger bits, eg 11mm 12mm 13mm, then this isnt for you.

    • +4 votes

      Not necessarily:

      e.g.
      https://www.bunnings.com.au/sutton-tools-viper-metric-drill-...
      "Drill sizes above 10mm & 3/8" feature reduced shanks to suit 10mm drill chucks"

      • +2 votes

        thats costs more than the drill AND driver !

        •  

          But most +10mm bits will have a 10mm shank. e.g. https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-12mm-hss-drill-bits_p00971...
          I've never found it an issue at all.

          •  

            @NigelTufnel: Surely it cant be most ?
            Ive used many bit sets, and never came across these reduced-shank bits in any of the sets.
            Only ever seen these kinda bits individually.

            •  

              @wildchill: Not sure about most. I'm just a DIYer, but the set I have with 11 and 12mm bits that I bought without thinking have 10mm shanks. So all I know is they're not hard to find if you need them…
              You can even get them with 1/4 quick change shanks. Though I'm not sure how much I'd trust those.

              But I'd say you're better off getting a set up to 10mm anyway and getting an individual bit for any larger on the off chance you need it.

    •  

      Anyone know if this Bosch set would work with the 10mm chuck?
      https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B00GGKMNTO

      • +1 vote

        Yes, it would. The drill bits in that kit are between 3 and 10mm. You'd only have issues with bits thicker than 10mm unless they have a reduced shank.

    Is the brushless impact driver same power as the standard impact driver?
    Any advantages of having brushless impact driver over this standard

    Looking for your expertise comments please……

    • +1 vote

      I have both.
      The brushless has a bit more torque, the trigger control is actually better it feels like it has more speed steps. And obviously being brushless would last longer battery wise.
      The brushless is ok too.. Nothing wrong with it. These are a lot stronger than my makita brushless sub compact and even my brushed makita version. However the ozitos are larger.
      I've noticed it's always good to have multiple impact drivers especially when you have a friend helping.
      I got the brushless for $40 from the deal a few weeks back. One of my best purchases!

            •  

              @Clear: It's always been a super corrupt/incompetent council even many years ago when I lived in Hobart. Maybe they should try and staff the council with personnel who don't live in Glenorchy. That might help.

              •  

                @ash2000: There's been a real problem with many councils here having aldermen living on the mainland. There's too many councils and they need to merge.

                  @Clear:

                  There's too many councils and they need to merge.

                  The same in NSW, but I must admit Tasmania's 29 LGA's for 500k people does sound horribly inefficient.

                  •  

                    @ash2000: Especially when a lot of the councils only have a population of 1000 or so people.

    Pulled the trigger. Previously purchased Stanley fatmax brushless hammer drill skin only andwas looking for battery and charger for it. It was another $120 bucks. So planning to get this combo( I know its not at the same level as stanley brushless), but for small fixes at home - i dont think its wise to spend another $120 bucks on battery/charger alone. Planning to sell stanley brushless and get some money back.

    Would these work for drilling into bricks or tiles?

      It doesn't have hammer function, so it will def struggle.

      Bricks I would definitely not. Needs a hammer function. Tiles I think would be ok.

    •  

      With the right drill bit, you should be able to do a few bricks at minimum

    Maybe a dumb question but do these come with any bits? If not, is there a standard kit I can buy that has the necessary pieces? Just need this for some general screwing/unscrewing and drilling smaller holes.
