    @BoschPowerToolsAU what sort of warrant does Bosch Blue come with?

    • +4 votes

      6 years on tools and batteries if you register them online within 4 weeks of purchase

        Thank you. Not sure why anyone would down vote my question. Op has linked to Bunnings page which has got no information on the warranty.

          No idea either, gave you an upvote to even it out.

          Warranty info is here

    There's never a deal for bosch blue circular saws.. :(

    Can the impact wrench kit be used to remove car wheel lugs?

    •  

      350Nm of breakaway torque, provided you're not over tightening them with excessive ugga duggas, it should be able to crack them?

    •  

      I've heard some milwaukee's have over 1000Nm torque. Checked the price though and its… not pretty.

      •  

        I've got a DeWalt similar to this one, 1650Nm of breakaway torque which is great for big jobs but they're also a big, heavy piece of gear compared to something like this.

        Bosch also have a couple of Big Daddy's if you're in this eco system. 1050Nm of fastening torque, 1700Nm breakaway. 2.9kg vs 1.3kg (plus add on the battery and it's not really something you want to be holding all day)

  •  

    If Total Tools offer the same deals you might be better buying from them and getting loyalty credit on your spend but if you have a bunnings power pass and IF it applies to these deals that will probably be a better offer.

    Just picked up one of these packs for myself a couple of days ago, great build quality and great tool. I'll have to keep an ear out for further specials on batteries and other tools

    Why don't they make a 200Nm Impact Wrench with the 1/4 inch hex bit in the middle god dammit!!

      You looking for a fast way to snap 1/4" bits regularly?

    • +1 vote

      Not sure what you want from that comment….if it has a 1/4" hex, it's an impact driver, which the one in this deal is also rated at 200Nm. Or did you mean a 1/4" drive instead of the 1/2" drive? In which case, I don't think you'll get 1/4" impact sockets. 3/8" maybe but you generally wouldn't need an impact for the small stuff. Powered ratchet would suffice.

      •  

        Bosch make a driver that has 1/4 hex inside the chuck and 1/2 inch socket on the outside. It's the most useful tool they make. I'm just saying it's a shame they don't make that drill with more power because it's a bit gutless for some nuts/bolts.

        And these tools have adjustable power so no if you know how to use the tool you won't break anything lol

        •  

          Yes I know but that too is rated at 200Nm so I'm not sure what you're asking for.

          Did you mean you want it with 300Nm? In which case, I agree with the above in that it's beyond the scope of 1/4" bits and would be the wrong tool for the job regardless of having adjustable power or not (which I suppose is why it only comes with a 1/2" drive).

          •  

            @whitelie: Hey you are right they do make a more powerful double wammy. Havent seen them in stores before! Another thing to put on the shopping list haha

  •  

    Already got a drill, impact driver and a couple of batteries from the ripper deals last year. Very tempted to grab the impact wrench then sell off the battery and charger, would almost cover the cost of the tool if you play your cards right.

    Great deal though!

    •  

      Yeah am tempted to buy the wrench and the drill and sell one battery and charger and have some dirt cheap quality tools.

    •  

      Hi,
      Why don't you buy an adapter to turn your impact driver into an impact wrench?

      •  

        I've got 3/8" and 1/2" drive adaptors but the wrench will have much better breakaway torque than the driver. Plus my impact driver is 170Nm I'm pretty sure.

        •  

          I assumed that too but apparently the specs are identical for these two. Not sure if the adaptors would possibly snap using an impact driver as an impact wrench at higher Nm, but I use my weaker Bosch impact driver with adaptors all the time but it's useless for busting nuts.

          •  

            @subywagon: I use the impact driver to do wheel nuts up but then torque them with a torque wrench. I only do them up to 110Nm and they still need nipping up after using the "170Nm" impact

  • +1 vote

    A noob question: as I don't have anything like these at home yet, out of these 3, which one should I buy? We just moved from a unit to a house, and started seeing needs for tools like these.

    From the specs showing on Bunnings site, the impact driver and impact wrench are almost same, with the only difference is the head (one is the 1/4" hex bit, the other is 1/2"), so can I buy one of them and then buy an adapter? If yes, which one should I buy - the wrench or the driver?

    The hammer drill, in my understanding, is suitable for drilling into concrete/brick? If I only need to drill into timber, is either one of the other two (impact driver/wrench) good enough?

    Thanks a lot.

    •  

      You need the hammer drill, it's the jack of all things. The name is a bit misleading to newbies, it's really just a drill that has an additional hammer function so you are able to drill into concrete/brick (useful to have if you only do this once in a blue moon, but does it nowhere near as well as a dedicated rotary hammer drill).

      An impact driver is specifically for driving screws in and is better at that job.

      An impact wrench is specifically for loosening/tightening bolts and fittings (for example loosening and tightening lug nuts on a car wheel).

      They're similar but meant for different things. Yes you can get an adapter to allow an impact driver to take 1/2" sockets but it won't have as much power as the wrench - so it may not handle a car wheel if it's on very tight where a wrench might. So it's the more versatile of the two.

      •  

        Thanks. But the specs say 200Nm torque for both of the driver and the wrench. Doesn't that mean they are same powerful?

    •  

      Between the driver and wrench, get the impact driver and yes, you can get an adaptor to use a 1/2" drive if you like. Impact driver is better suited to screws, wrench for nuts and bolts essentially but as you say, you can use an adaptor for light duty stuff. Don't use either for drilling, they technically can but it's the wrong tool for the job.

      You can turn the hammer function off on the drill so it will drill in to metal or timber fine. Can also use it for screws but it's relatively easy to strip the heads on them and an impact is better suited.

      Ideally get the drill for drilling holes and an impact for putting the screws in. With two sets you won't need to swap bits, batteries etc and can work faster. If $400 is too expensive for the little use you might get out of it, an Ozito or Ryobi set might be better value. If you had to pick one out of the three, the drill can do everything essentially.

      •  

        Thank you. So in conclusion, picking only one tool for drilling into timber and turning the screws, I should choose the drill instead of the impact driver?
        I tried to look at Ryobi in Bunnings, but one full set (one driver, one 18V battery, one charger) is already more than $200

      •  

        With the drill, it's possible to turn "hammer" off, how about the driver/torque, can I turn "impact" off?

        • +1 vote

          No you can't, which is why the drill will do everything but you can technically drill with the impact but it's not designed for it at all.

          There's this Ozito for $169. I think if you wait till they're price matching ALDI stuff you can pick up both seperately cheaper

          Or this Ryobi for $259

          I don't think either are Hammer drills though, so if you've got brick walls, you may have to spend a bit more.

          A lot of the mainstream brands have kits from $299 but if you want other tools for DIY around the house, these two eco systems offer the best bang for buck

          •  

            @whitelie: Thanks @whitelie.
            So I guess this one https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/toolpro-toolpro-drill-an... from ToolPRO is not as good as Ozito/Ryobi?

            • +1 vote

              @Averell: I'd take Ryobi, Ozito and then Toolpro in that order personally but they'll all be ok for DIY use.
              Just take note if they're Hammer drills or drill driver's. A drill driver won't have the hammer function, so can't drill brick, masonary, light concrete etc.

              Ozito is great for DIY because once you get in to that eco system, it's relatively cheap if you need to get say a saw or blower or whipper snipper etc without having to pay for more batteries and the skins will often get discounted to price match ALDI.

      Impact driver is the handiest. Especially putting furniture together or apart.

      I had the impact driver and hammer drill when I was reno'ing my house last year. I used the impact twice and the drill hundreds of times, if that helps.
      Hanging plaster sheets, framing, door hinges etc etc. I found the drill trigger easier to control speed as most of my work was into hardwood studs.
      Fantastic and sturdy set of gear. Highly recommend Bosch Blue.

      •  

        Thanks. That's a clear answer for me.

  •  

    I use my impact driver constantly for around the house. Have had it for about 8 years and she goes beautifully, although tempted by this deal and upgrade to brushless… 🤔

  •  

    May i please ask a stupid question. Is this a good suitable drill for an all rounder drill at home. For example, if i wish to put furniture together, drill into wood or brick to mount a camera? I understand an Impact driver is more around screwing things, rather than drilling, but is this drill capable of screwing things well also? How does it compare to something like this? https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-one-18v-brushless-hammer-d...

    I clearly have little knowledge, so thanks for your patience and any advice.

    •  

      An 'ordinary' drill is perfectly suitable to take a screw bit and drill screws all day. If you're only doing occasional bits around the house it'll excellent for your needs.

      An impact driver is a more specialised tool specifically for screws due to the way it operates - makes it faster & less effort when you're doing lots of screws e.g. a DIY deck. They're excellent to use if you've never had one before, but if you haven't got the use yet then don't stress about the impact driver.

    •  

      Just make sure you use appropriate drill bits. A normal wood drill bit won't go through concrete or brick. You need a masonite drill bit with a different tip
