Price matching Aldi on the brushless version of the Ozito PXC drill.
Thanks, just bought one, wasn't sure it was on special 😁
When I add to cart the price jumps back to $79.90.
Actually it jumps to full price when selecting my closest which is Seven Hills NSW.
Other near by suburbs are discounted.
These Ozito PXC deals are pushing me to Ozito from Dewalt.
I have both and nothing compares to the Dewalt drills but I grab the ozito and use it instead lol ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Price matching? Isn't aldi doing it for $49?
Just in case anyone is comparing Oranges w Apples:
The current Aldi deal (coming up in a week) is for a Ferrex drill very like this one which is rated at a similar 50Nm.
A very recent Aldi deal (from last month or so) was $79.95 for one like this with an alloy gearbox that does hammering, impacting and screwing as seperate modes. Also had a 2.0AH battery and charger included.
Here is the Ozito version of this previous Ferrex one. Making this clear as both are a step up from these $50-$60 drills in terms of flexibility due to their triple-action gearboxes: https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-pxc-18v-brushless-hammer-d...
Because… If you want one drill for all functions around the house, it may be better to pay a bit more now (and avoid having to buy a seperate impact driver and/or hammer drill when you find your standard drill isn't up to the task later on)
The only things I can add is don't over spec your drill just for the heck of it, the smaller lighter drills do save a purpose when doing light work that takes long such as assembling furniture. You don't want to be holding a bulky heavy drill all day.
Fair point. Except the gearbox adds about 6mm in length and only few grams. Best to stick with small batteries to save weight.
A decent drill/ driver with hammer can stop you ending up with having stripped/headless screws and not being able to hammer into a the odd wall.
Tip: For home (occasional) use, keep your batteries half-charged. Only charge fully before use. (Stored for long periods fully energised, Li-Ion batteries degrade internally).
@resisting the urge: I'm comparing the compact 9mm drill with normal 13mm drill and the difference in weight is significant (so is the difference in power).
@OpayuOnam: That's a different one from this deal.
Also a 9mm chuck is really too small for general DIY- good for smaller bits, detailed drilling. It will have a smaller motor, smaller lower voltage battery, etc. Probably even a plastic chuck, alone that would make a big difference in weight.
@resisting the urge: It's plastic chuck for sure. I only use it for assembly of furniture and really small jobs.
It's the only drill my partner will comfortably use.
So definitely horses for courses 😃
If you need to drill anything serious you need a bigger drill, even the 13mm I've got feels like a plastic chuck.
@OpayuOnam: Yes every manufacturer has a small one, I have 10.8V Dewalt drill with a quick change shank, like an impact drill. You could call it chuckless, and as such it is very light. Great for plastics and electronics. Can be used to drill holes with quick change drill bits. Main thing I like is that the clutch is far more sensitive (stopping delicate screws getting stripped), and the built in lighting is better than a chucked drill.
@resisting the urge: Very light but I wouldn't reccommend Dewalt 2.0ah or 3.0ah 12V battery. Get newly (or coming soon) Dewalt 5.0ah 12V battery to ensure sufficient power.
@Dark Zeus: Jus depends how long you need to go between charges The 108V is 1.5AH and is always enough for light duties. The big drill has a 20V/5.0AH which is necessary for making say, numerous holes in the hardest of hardwoods when doing things like construction, walls, roofs, etc.
Thanks OP, grabed one as the included drill in that $99 set is a bit weak for larger jobs.
Just went down and picked one up :), Thankyou OP
Is the the right tool for putting in decking screws?
No, get an impact driver for screws
But you should have a drill too, need to pre drill holes for the screws or you will split wood left right centre, and probably break heaps of bits and screw heads.
We have this drill, easily can drill into mortar and wood.
Despite the packaging, you will need a pretty decent drill bit to get into colourbond and metal. Dont think your $10 aldi drill bits will work.
The RYOBI 56 piece kit is always a popular one.
Would you recommend Craftwright 32 screw bits and 99 drill bits for in-house DIY?
You get what you pay for with that set. Extremely cheap Chinese drill bits that'll probably break quickly. I've never used them but you're welcome to try.
try step bits for sheet metals
Which battery do you guys buy? This item is skin only. Thanks

Is there anything else I should buy for having good comb? Thanks
Does Bunnings also sell an Ozito PXC 18V Brushless Drill Driver Kit that also includes the 4Ah Battery and Fast Charger ?
https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-pxc-brushless-hammer-drill... not the same drill though
Don't really get the point of this; would take a brushed hammer drill or impact driver over this imo.
I don't see an Ozito PXC Brushless Hammer Drill on the Bunnings website
Here's a link to it
Thanks mate. Has the Brushless Hammer Drill been on sale before ?
@Andy99: Yeah, I got mine as a kit with a fast charger and 2 1.5Ah batteries for $99 about 6 months ago.
@Vglencoco: Sounds good. Hopefully comes on again before EOFY
I suppose if you also had a dedicated rotary hammer drill, then it would make the hammer function redundant. And for some reason normal circular shank drill bits seem more to come in a much wider range than hex.
More of the shank that can be gripped the better
Any owners want to give some feedback?
I own the cheap brush version and find the gearbox releases at a pretty low torque.
I’m not unhappy, but an old Makita 7.2v has more grunt with a fixed gear. The other brand 18v tools I have used have delivered much more torque.
Right tools for the job and all, but i was expecting more.
I should expand a bit and say the cordless drill hasn’t let me down with drilling small holes or screwing small stuff. But I expected an 18v system to deliver similar power to a corded drill, like my $20 600w cheap ass drill. But the clutch slips in the battery drill with much less torque than the corded drill, and my tradie brother in law has a brand name 18v cordless that performs similarly to a corded drill.
I guess a way to describe it would be I need to brace the corded drill or a AEG 18v cordless against my knee or similar when drilling with a fat bit, but the ozito gives up and clicks well before that, and I can hold it with my wrist against its maximum torque.
I've been using the Brushless Hammer Drill for the last 6 months and the only thing it struggled with was drilling into the brick on the outside of my house, but in saying that my 900w rotary hammer drill struggles a little with that and the Fridgie that installed my split system's Milwaukee used almost 2 full batterys to drill through. But other then that it has been flawless.
So does the hammer drill function work ok on bricks ?
@Andy99: I've only tried it on my bricks but everything seems to struggle with my bricks. Worked fine going into concrete.
@Vglencoco: But did you use the hammer function?
And what brand did you use for drill bit?
I reccomend Kango drill bit.
@Dark Zeus: Yes, I was using Hammer function, if you read my comment previously as well you would see it's not just that drill that struggled with my bricks, I could've sat there and chewed through battery after battery and it would've got there eventually but even my 900w Rotary Hammer Drill struggles
For Hammer Drill I was using a Bosch drill bit and with my Rotary Hammer Drill I was using a Kango bit.
@Vglencoco: Very strange, i suggest you to return it for a replacement.
@Dark Zeus: Why? I'm fairly sure its the bricks not the drill as even more powerful drills struggle?
"mskeggs" might help if you tell us exactly which model brush version Ozito drill your talking about, there are a few.
Strange that bunnings has this drill when they sell this one:
is this cheaper one to compete with Aldi?
Many people have a rotary hammer drill, why pay more for a second drill to have hammer function when it won't ever be used.
I also think it's a little heavier and longer than non hammer.
Last time I bought this one with a battery and charger for 50$, was a better deal.
Picked one up this evening but you can only adjust the torque a quarter of the way. Faulty :(
2.5Ah Battery with Fast Charger is currently $39 (was $59.99)
So, $39 for 2.5Ah battery with fast charger + $69 for 4Ah battery = $108 < $115 for 2.0Ah and 4Ah with fast charger
Bought one along with the $39 2.5Ah battery n charge. Now need a deal for brushless impact driver.
Would be BETTER to buy a package which including battery (2x), standard charger (fast charger if you are lucky, along with Hammer driver and Impacted driver) as they are cheaper.
Want the brushless versions of tools but they are not sold in package so have to wait. Also the brushless drill in package was with a smaller battery so bought the bigger battery n charger separately.
Can someone please recommend an all purpose drill and hammer for DIYS?
It will be my first set so no idea which brand and what kind should I go for but I do not want to upgrade etc for please someone recommend something that will be sufficient for a long time yet affordable including bits
DIY (home, basic, plain, simple - Ozitos, Ryobi
Professional such as registered builder, hardcore handyman - Dewalt, Matika, Bosch (Blue), Milwaulkle.
The best thing you can do is figure out what you want the tools for, the 90% of the time you're using them, then buy into a brand/platform that fits your budget. Go to Bunnings and just browse through their Ozito and Ryobi products.
•I'm a beginner DIY and I'm holding out for an 'Ozito PXC 18V Brushless Hammer Drill' deal for my first drill. I've tried Ozito tools before, they are cheaper than Ryobi and are perfect for what I need at home. I didn't even know how to use one properly until I saw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5dx6Xf2b3U
•For drill and screw bits I went with the Craftright cheapies from Bunnings. These worked fine for me as I was only drilling small holes and replacing the door locks around the house. Look for drill bits that are either general purpose or fits the material you're working on. For screw driver bits, look for a set that has alot of Phillips Number 2 screw bits in it for home use.
My dad is a hardcore DIYer. Electrical, plumbing and carpentry…etc he does it all. He uses mostly second hand tools like his Dewalt DCD970 drill and impact driver, Makita circular saw and Bosch rotary hammer for the past 10-15+ years.
Thanks for taking time out and sharing all of this useful information. I am very thankful :-)
As the Bunnings stores are currently closed in VIC due to the shutdown, when does this discount end ?
Picked up last one in my local Bunnings. Also got this battery pack https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/624814 (full price shown on sticker price, but scans at reduced on checkout).
Also got the kango masonry drill bit set https://www.bunnings.com.au/kango-10-piece-masonry-set-with-...
Cn you use this battery oack with the Ozito brushless hammer?
No idea this is my first drill. I can post a pic of the back of the battery if you like
