      • Haha, that's a typo at 2am

    • +3

      This deal is $24 cheaper than the skin only. Good deal.

  • Wow, with 2 batteries and charger.
    That's a bit unusual of bunnings, trying to beat Aldi? Is there an Aldi deal?

  • +3

    Bought this earlier this year at full price, and it's worth every penny.
    At $75, it's a bloody steal!

    • +4

      Buy another one, return it with the old receipt.

      • +6

        Yeah, who needs honesty these days.

    Been eyeing this for a long time, never goes down

    • How much is it usually?

      • +11

        $49.98 is the current usual price. And it has gone down before, though rarely: $45, $39.89, $30.90

      Whew, bought this 2 days ago and thought you were going to hit me with a new, lower, price! Great bit of kit BTW.

    • +1

      It was $55 for RRP for quite some time, went OOS during early Covid, came back at $49.98. Bought one. Works well.

      • I wouldnt bother with the Circ saw. have one and it bogs down really quickly. Definitely the worst cordless tool I own. If they brought out a brushless model maybe ??

        • Correct, but found this helpful, use 4 amp battery & be patient with it, let it do the work & don't push, was able to cut 50mm plus hard wood consistently

        • They do have a brushless model circular saw, I have it and works well so far (soft and hard wood)

          https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-pxc-18v-184mm-7-brushless-...

        • I didn't even notice it wasn't brushless. I assumed all PXC products were. The brushless is pretty pricey for the brand. Hopefully that gets marked down at some point. The only other batteries I have are for Bosch Blue 18V and those are around $300+

      Thank you Aldi for keeping Bunnings honest.
      lol to Bunnings on the markup

      • +4

        Both Aldi and Bunnings are probably selling these at a loss. Aldi is to lure customers to their stores and Bunnings is to match Aldi. I don't think Bunnings' margins are very high with Ozito stuff. They are much better than no-name junk and come with a 5 year warranty, which is a huge cost by itself.

        • +3

          Trust me when I say this that both Bunnungs and Aldi make profits on these items. Can say as an ex-Bunnings employee

  • Thanks OP. I've been wanting to get a drill and this combo drill is a bonus.

    holding out for their brushless rotary drill

  • Wow! Thank you for posting OP. What a great deal…also with batteries and charger!
    Cheers :)

      Fast charger!

      • I'm so thrilled about the kit. Now I can free up my own batteries and kit when I'm out gardening with the Mrs lol :)
        Thanks to my nightshift I was able to swoop in on this before it's sold out.

    • +1

      2 x 1.5Ah batteries!

      • Woot Not bad for this price. :)

  • +1

    Dumb question but can you use this hammer drill like a normal drill?

    • +7

      Yep, theres a tab that let's you switch between 3 modes

      • Thanks mate! Will buy then

      • So you can turn this into a normal drill, so is it suitable to attach a brush and turn it into a polisher?

        • +4

          you could, but depending on what youre polishing you probably shouldnt. polishers should be random orbit otherwise you may see circles on whatever youre polishing

          • @hongerwonger: Probably not good for polishing cars. Do you know if this drill set fit this drill?
            repco

            • +1

              @htc: They are all under 13mm, so yes, they will fit.

            • +1

              @htc: Yeah it won't have any problem.

    • +9

      Yes, and you can also use it as a normal hammer

      • +4

        You switch it to the hammer tab then you can use it to bash objects.

    • +3

      That's not a dumb question

  • +1

    Already have this, the brushless drill and non brushless drill but at this price I'll add another!

    • Is it worth it over the non-brushless? I have that one.

      • I also have the non brushless hammer drill. I have been happy with it so far, haven't had any issues with power, except if the battery is running low. For DIY stuff it is sufficient.

      • +1

        When is the last time you had to replace worn-out brushes?

        Not usually a big deal for DIY. Tradies are more likely to care.

        • +2

          I don't know about Ozito, but often the brushless is also an upgraded tool. For example the Ryobi brushless impact driver has more torque than the brushed one.

      • If yours is this one then yes, this one has more torque (55Nm vs 40Nm) than the non-brushless one.

  • Is this the comparable Ryobi and is it worth the higher price?
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-18v-one-4-0ah-hammer-drill...

    • +6

      It's more about the battery ecosystem. Ozito are much better value in that respect, especially when Aldi has a sale and Bunnings price matches.

      • +1

        better value yes. Ryobi has a larger range of compatible tools though.

      • You can get off brand batteries for the Ryobi One+ series from Amazon/Ebay for a decent price.

        • you can also get battery conversion kits off ebay. I use makita batteries on all my ryobi tools.

    • +2

      The Ryobi one is not brushless, I'd pick the Ozito.

      • New to the power tools. Can you explain why brushless is better?

        EDIT: answered below

        • +3

          For a random office drone doing DIY projects or repairs at home only a few times a year, brushed tool will last 20 years, brushless will last 40 years plus. It's the batteries that die when not taken care of like storing it discharged for a year unused etc, leaving the battery plugged into the tool for most of the year until use time to charge it.

          • @dreamscene: So the real question is, what tool are you going to be able to buy replacement batteries for more easily? I'm putting my money on Ryobi.

            • @macrocephalic: Ozito PXC batteries are almost always cheaper, as can be seen from this deal. Ryobi tools are better built though but for the occasional DIY user I don't see much difference.

              • @bio: You can get non-genuine batteries for the Ryobi One+ system easily - because they're a big brand.

            • +1

              @macrocephalic: whatever batteries you have, there are conversion kits you can buy on ebay. so I have 5 makita batteries and I buy a $60 converter so I can power all my other brands with just makita batteries

          • @dreamscene: Yes, I've just had a Metabo battery die on me from letting the voltage drop too low from prolonged storage. It cost me $75 for 8x good 18650 batteries from Ebay and an hours work to solder them into the pack last time it happened. It's better for me to buy this kit from Bunnings.

          • +1

            @dreamscene: Ahh no brushless wont survive 40 and maybe brushed for 10 max (but after 10 years batteries prob wont be made for it or the motor will be like 50% less effective if its a well made motor ( brand). You are going bit too far there matey. Brushless motors can die sooner, as much as a brushed. Its your use and how hard you push it, excessive heat build up can take out magnetic field strength or cause (severe) de-magnetization. Usually bearings wear first. You show me a 40 year old brushless motor working fine lol. Brushless motors haven't been out long enough in Australia in power tools compared to other devices that have been using brushless R/C and other tech. Gotta love ignorant people 40 years haha no not even 20 years! Ignorance. Also depends of the motor build quality. Some brushed motors could out last a cheap and nasty brushless. Brushless is just no maintenance and no moving parts and instant torque.

          • @dreamscene: Thought so until more or less a week ago. Had to drill quite a few holes in break wall and my Matrix branded 20V drill started to generate lots of sparks and smokes. Did not bother trying to replace the brushes but instead looking for a brushless one, then I saw this. Perfect timing.

            I did not use that drill much and did not really pay much attention to it neither. It has been just over two years, used it a couple of times for tightening screw etc. but nothing serious like drilling lots of holes in the break wall. Surprisingly the battery is still strong, I could not remember when did I charge the 2Ah battery last time, but the remaining juice actually almost finished the job. There were only 5 or 6 holes to go, so I recharged the battery and continue and then the brushes started to spit fire when just one and a half holes left.

    • Compare the warranties. Last time I looked the Ozito one was better.

  • Thanks OP, bought 1.

  • Is this enough to drill a 10mm hole into brick for a clothesline

    • +7

      Yes provided you use a masonry drill bit

    • +15

      Drilling into brick with this drill on hammer mode can be very hard work, but it gets there eventually. If you're gonna be doing lots of brick drilling consider a rotary hammer drill instead they go through brick like butter.

      • +1

        Second this. I have this drill, AND the brushless rotary hammer… The brushless hammer struggles/is very slow with brick (even with a masonry bit) but the brushless rotary hammer chews through brick like butter. The brushless rotary is also seriously useful for demolition work, we're used it to chip away concrete and tiles, of which it's done an excellent job.

        Highly recommend forking out for the rotary hammer if you can afford it.

        On the other hand, the brushless hammer does still have good utility as a standard drill driver on top of having some hammer capabilities, if you don't already have a standard drill driver.

      • +2

        though if he/she only has 1 clothesline to put up, then this would be a better buy, as its a more versatile tool. But as you pointed out, it's not the best tool for the job.

      • +2

        Depends what brick. It is fine for a 6mm hole in clay brick, with a decent bit, to hang a shelf.

        For a bigger hole, or concrete, I get out the rotary hammer.

        • +4

          Yes, and if you are really stuck and have to use this for masonary, drill a smaller hole first and then go larger after, it was be much quicker and easier

    • +3

      I would advise to drill a smaller hole first, provided you have a few different masonry bits.

      • +1

        See the one thing that always scares me is how do you know if there's a cable running behind the wall that you could drill and electrocute yourself from?

        • +7

          well, with brick you would rarely drill all the way through…

          With other walls, often a stud finder has an electrical cable finder. Also, well, not drilling near switches, power points, etc helps. And if you're really worried, turn off the circuit at the breaker, then after you drill, if there's no copper pieces around you've probably missed them.

          Though perhaps people with more experience can offer some tips.

        • +2

          Switch off mains power first if you’re worried

        • +1

          Based on inspecting my house and my children's during construction (all double-brick), the electrical wiring in the internal brick walls is installed in conduit inserted in a channel cut into the face of the brick. The conduit runs directly from the electrical fitting up to the top of the wall. So I just steer well clear of drilling in the area above any electrical fitting in a direct line from the fitting to the ceiling - with a margin for safety as I get further away from the fitting. However, if you have multiple fittings on a wall I suppose there's always a possibility they might have run a conduit that services all the fittings and therefore might not be directly above one of the fittings……. hasn't been an issue for me yet.
          If drilling in an external brick wall my wiring is run in the cavity between the internal and external brick walls - and I've never had an application that required drilling all the way through an external brick (or close to it). However, I still check to see what electrical fittings are on the internal and external walls in the vicinity of where I am drilling.
          If there's any doubt, I would just switch the power off at the meter box. Another reason why battery powered drills are so handy!

          I think you can buy a device that can detect wiring (live?) running in walls. So if there's doubt about where you're wiring is run it may be worthwhile investigating one of those.

          Don't forget there may be water pipes to stay clear of as well.

        • +1

          If it's a brick veneer house (bricks on the outside, plaster on the inside), like most houses now, then the cables are going to be in the space between the plaster and the bricks - not running through the bricks. As long as you don't drill all the way through the brick to the other side then you're not going to hit a cable. There's really not any practical way to run cables or pipes through the middle of normal house bricks.

          • +2

            @macrocephalic: I have electrical fittings (powerpoints, lights etc) on some internal walls in my house that are face brick on both sides . So there's obviously some way of doing this (running power in normal house bricks), probably utilising holes in the brick to run insert conduit or hose(?) when they are laid. So, I'd check for electrical fittings on either side of walls before drilling and if in doubt, switch power off at meter box or get someone who knows what they're doing to do the job.

            PS - just realised you were probably just referring to external brick walls - and my comment is about internal walls. Nonetheless, just be aware it can be done - but unlikely unless just a single face brick wall i.e. not double brick or brick veneer as there are easier options than building capability within the bricks when they are laid.

            • +1

              @bean_counter: Are you sure those walls aren't double brick with a frame between? Are they besser blocks? I could see there being enough space to run things through besser blocks, but you'd have to be really dedicated and careful to fit anything through the holes in most normal house bricks - especially after the brick layer has splashed mortar all over the mating surfaces.

              I could be wrong, but it's not something I've ever seen.

              • @macrocephalic: Absolutely certain. These are single brick walls with face brick on both sides. One has an archway in it and you can look along the line of the wall and see that is single brick and also see the light switches on both sides of the wall in the same position on each side. The actual bricks each have 3 vertical holes, each larger than a 50 cent coin, spaced fairly evenly along the length of the brick. I suspect the holes at each end would line up with the centre hole of the brick above it in a wall so that you could have a continuous vertical shaft in the wall so long as the mortar was not allowed to block the holes. The holes would be large enough for either conventional or corrugated conduit to be embedded in the wall as the bricks are laid.

  • How does it compare to the $99 DeWalt deal Bunnings had on Father’s Day?

    • DeWalt is a better brand, and it was a bit more powerful (57.5Nm vs 55Nm) but it was not a hammer drill. Depends on where you want to use it.

    • +3

      More powerful and durable motor. Not that hard to Google brushless vs brushed drill

      • Google — yeah, my point was to have some opinions

        • honestly brushed can be as powerful if not more and the home gamer is unlikely to ever need to change brushes. that said you'd have to compare the specs. I think they make 4 different drills .

        • If you are comparing brushed vs brushless drills of equal torque, the brushless will be a lighter and have a bit longer battery life. The brushes in the motor will eventually wear out after thousands of hours usage if, but may be replaced.

          In my opinion the difference is not large enough for me to care about as a home user. If I was using them professionally on a daily basis then I would definitely want brushless.
