On sale is this promotional Ozito kit that includes a PXC 2x18V Lawnmower, 18V Grass Trimmer, 10 trimmer blades, 2 18V 2.5Ah Li-Ion Batteries and 2 Compact Fast Chargers for $199.

Bunnings previously had this deal going last year and you can check out the comments from the previous deal. Comments said that the lawnmower is brushed and suitable for small / medium sized lawns. 4.0Ah batteries will also make the mower perform better.

    Thanks clear. I think this is the one ozito deal I can pass, but great effort on the post as always.

  • +3

    Where do you get the stock checks from? I thought the Bunnings API was unavailable now?

    I'm trying to get this inflator but there's no stock in stores however online says there's stock.

    https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-pxc-18v-240v-hybrid-inflat...

    • +2

      That inflator is decent btw. If you’re in Sydney and need to borrow one (vs if you actually need to BUY and own it) shout out.

      • Cheers - trying to purchase, just with all the crap weather in Sydney would rather do the tyres in underground carpark and I'd be more motivated to do the spare tyre under the car as well. I do my grandmothers car as well every so often so thought I would kill two birds.

        Good to know that it's decent, I've already got ozito batteries and also got power in my garage so combined with 5 year warranty it doesn't work out too bad.

        Thanks for the offer.

        • Yeah totally mate! Pain in the ass. I needed it for the motorbike, with the rain it’s just sitting lol.

          Operation of it is a bit finicky btw. Hard to get the nozzle latched on. Goes good once you work it out tho and seems to draw approximately zero power lol

    • Would be using their own script. The stock quantity per store for a given product is all getting returned through the website just not shown.

    • Oof. This was <$50 like 2 weeks back during their sale

      • Yeah I tried purchasing for $49.50 wasn't any C&C around me so tried to get it delivered, they gave it to a store near me that didn't have stock and ended up refunding.

        A couple days later I checked the product page and it wentup in price but also showed "in stock" on about 5 stores around where I'm based but then I went to two of them and there's only the display stock.

    • +1

      IMHO the inflator isn't great, the large volume flow part is very noisy and pushes out 10L/min which is pathetic. The high pressure inflator works well enough

      Id get a separate tyre inflator if that's what you need, recent Baseus deal looked good. For large volume inflating is definitely choose something else

      • You literally saved me some bucks. Thanks for the insights.

        • Actually I'd like to offer a different opinion - it's one of my favourite in the Ozito range. I use it all the time, particularly for pumping up the kids bike tyres. So quick and easy! Sure it's not the best for doing car tyres - takes a long time, but I use it on my caravan tyres before going away because it's way more convenient to carry that to the caravan than to take the caravan to a service station, even if it takes a few minutes per tyre. I bought at full price many years ago and have never had any issues.

      • At the same Bunnings where I took the photo they had a dozen returned for not working. Seems to be some QC issues.

    • I did a special order instore for the inflator. Took 5 days to arrive instore

  • I was at Ashfield NSW Bunnings last night and saw a few of these bundles near the Service Desk

  • +5

    I'm a fan of the PXC range, but not this mower, it's terribly weak and underpowered, even for moderately tall grass.

    • What about the more expensive steel deck one they do? Any better?

      • +4

        Steel deck are good. Have one.

      • +1

        Yep. It’s great. Two standard batts fully charged and I can mow my whole yard and front and nature strip and generally have a bit of juice left to do a partial whipper snip (650sqm lot w a small ish house).

        If the grass is super long it will run on a sort of turbo mode and you won’t get everything done in one hit (or I don’t), but if it’s normal cutting length, or neurotic suburban retiree cutting length (i.e. 1mm longer than his preference) it will last the whole time.

        • +1

          Chuck in 2x 4ah and it feels a lot more powerful.

          • @netjock: I don’t doubt it but it does the job perfectly as is and I don’t need batts for anything else haha.

          • @netjock: Surely this is a must, I can't see the 2.5ah batteries doing much

            • @Jackson: 2.5ah does my front yard and nature strip. 8m x 15m but will be out. Not enough juice left to run the trimmer. Therefore suggest getting another battery if people want to do it in the one go.

              2x 4ah would do all of the front confidently and a bit of my back yard about 15m x 3m before it runs out.

    • +4

      Can concur, although a fully charged 4.0amp battery seems to give it decent kick.

      • +1

        +1 to 2x 4ah

  • +3

    I prefer the blower mulcher kit which has 2*18v 4ah batteries for $180. Bought that then all the other cheap skins.

  • +4

    This mower is crap. Get steel deck or don't bother.

  • +4

    the trimmer is junk, there's a review about similar one which supposedly better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JguHJyPYjwk

    • +3

      Agreed, the blades break far too easily, you'll go through 10 each job based on my experience.

      • +2

        Yes they break too often! I found that half length blade last much longer than the full length for some reason

      • You're being too rough, I go through one, maybe two max. each time I trim my lawns.

        • +2

          Maybe, but you have to be too careful around hard things. I've since ditched it for a proper string trimmer & haven't looked back.

          • +2

            @dojomojo: Yeah, it's a different tool for a different job. I think a lot of the issues people have is from using it like they would a line trimmer.

            It's effectively a plastic knife, and isn't designed to constantly impact things you don't want to cut. Along fences, edges etc, a line trimmer is much faster as you don't need to be as precise with the position.

            • @Prong: My old one would wear down real quick near concrete, the blade wouldn't actually fall off. Meant I just had to be careful that I wasn't roughing it against a concrete edge for 5+ minutes. It was fine in the dirt/grass. Current one just melts away.

        • I'm pretty similar but still I end up with plastic blades shooting off into the distance and not being able to find them.

          It's really frustrating. They've gotten far worse over time too. I had one with two blades that worked far better than my current single blade one.

          • +1

            @lancesta: Seems more like hazard. What is falling blade hits someone at near full pace. 🤔

      • Drill a hole. Attach a cable tie…

        That being said, I can clear a 600m2 block with one blade and one 4.0Ah battery. Some kind of sourcery! Must be quality difference between blades.

    • +1

      Yes they are pretty bad, I just use the hack where you can put a trimmer line into it instead by heating one end and creating a bulb. It works a bit better.

      • how did you do it?

        • +2

          Cut off a 8-10cm bit of trimmer line. Melt one end with a lighter into a bulb (not too hot or it vaporises). Let it cool and then stick the line into the hole (top down) where the blade usually attaches until it hits the bulb. Might not last very long either, but cheap and easily replaceable.

    • +9

      IMO the trimmer is pretty good. Here's a dumb video I made where I trim stuff that should not be trimmed.

      https://youtu.be/LK5G7c8vPcQ

      This is the same trimmer included in this deal, from that older 2020 deal where it was $29 with a 2.5Ah battery.

      It's still going strong and I think it is decent enough. I have never actually broken a blade, and only very occasionally had them come off in normal use. You need to catch them on something solid for them to come off, but you can just put them back on.

      The blades in that video you linked are not the same as the blades mine came with. I did test some cheap third party blades from eBay, and those break very very easily - usually at the attachment point.

      The blades in that video appear similar to the blades I got from eBay. The proper blades have different markings and mould lines, and seem extremely tough. That said, Ozito may have changed blades at some point, or had bad official blades. But I still have some of my original blades, and in my experience, they last a long time.

      • Yeah there's a lot of comments about the blades being changed. I used one in 2015 which I felt worked far better, not sure if it's just because it was dual blade or something though.

        • +1

          Interestingly the photo for the replacement blades on the Bunnings website closely matches the ones in the Gymjunnky Productions video.

          His purchase timeline is about 3 months ahead of mine, so further supports the idea that Ozito changed the blades supplied.

          In 1.5 years of fortnightly use, I have worn down 7 of my 10 blades, including ones when testing. Next time I am at Bunnings I will grab a pack of new ones, and see if they are the same or not.

        • Bought some extra blades. They appear the same as the good ones that came with my trimmer. Maybe slightly neater moulding, and have a 6 where the older ones have a 5. They seem the same in use to me, and very hard to break. Definitely different to the older ones.

          • @Prong: Thanks this is good news. The ones that came with my trimmer literally melted off rather than wearing down. I might try some of the new ones and see if they work any better. If I'm rough I get less than 5 mins with it, if careful I'd be lucky to get the front done in half hour. So not sure what I might be doing wrong

      • Great video, shows the abuse it would cop from most uneducated users.

      • Haha… Thanks for the laugh.

      • They look similar to my Bosch blades, which are reasonably durable in my experience.

  • 2 x 18V 2.5Ah Li-Ion Batteries will only last enough to do the front nature strip. Unless you want to wait until the battery recharge to use the trimmer and blower, you should also get another set of batteries.

    • +2

      Use the 4.0Ah Ozito batteries and it'll work much better. Same applies to all the PXC mowers.

      • yeah, I have the 4.0Ah ones and I usually get just enough out of them without recharging.

    • +1

      I guess this depends on how high your grass it - I have this kit and have 2x2.5Ah batteries. It does the backyard and half the front yard. 500sqm block with 250sqm grass. I have two more 2.5Ah batteries so can continue cutting whilst the first lot charges. Then I use the battery to do the edges with the line trimmer.

      I cut my grass every 2-3 weeks as have rye grass which grows like weeds.

  • +1

    I have this and the Ozito $59 blower and a couple of extra batteries (2x4A for $99) and it is perfect for my 150m2 of lawn and edges front and back, as long as I do it every 2 weeks and don't let it get too long. And if it struggles just lift the cutting height and do 2 passes on the offending area

  • I bought several kits which included the battery for as low as $39. One was a garden sprayer. Another a buffer. A mother was a brush kit for cleaning pavers and the like. That last one was $79. In addition to the lawn mower kit. If the batteries die, I’ll just grab the next 2.

  • +1

    Great post OP!

  • +2

    I have this trimmer and it's useless. Won't recommend.

  • Rockingham has not had it. They never had it, as told by the employee

  • Anyone can share me a receipt please?
    Or the item number?
    They can’t find it in Rockingham

    • +1

      There's an I/N in the OP but Powerpass shows I/N 0296589 which is the same as the one on the Ozito product page

      I think this is the regular promotional product price? Powerpass shows it as retail price

  • +5

    Got this kit.

    The 2.5ah battery will fit the Sander skins that were cheap.

    Upgrade to 4ah black batteries for the mower and it will do just fine.

    $48 4ah batteries coming back into stock this weekend to counter the Aldi tool sale.

  • It’s a terrible lawn mower if you have a Buffalo lawn. I had to struggle with my 100 sqm lawn every time until gave up after a year and decided to return.

    Positive part was that Bunnings returned it without any fuss.

    • Perhaps you were trying to cut it too low? That's not good for the grass.

  • its plastic like a toy - I got a makita after much research. But I do have the Ozito PCX handheld tool ranges and love them!

    • Its super light though, which may be good for some people?

    • Does the Makita still have a plastic base? Should go look it up myself I guess lol, but if you've already researched electric mowers, could you please see my question further down \/ \/ \/ ?

  • +1

    I just need the batteries lmao

  • Bought the Aldi 2 X 20V Mower Kit - inc 2 x 4.0ah batteries and charger $229 in Dec - very decent mower with 5 year warranty.

  • +2

    I needed the cheapest mower I could as I have one or two rent inspections before moving into an apartment with no need for it any longer. It honestly did really, I set it to the highest grass setting as grass was around ankle to shin height in parts. Grass was relatively dry and I used 2x4.0ah batteries and did around 90m2 pretty comfortably.

    • I was meant to say 'really well' but a word.

  • I've got the ozito 18v PXC cylinder mower which is great for a small mower that never gets mentioned. I paid $169 for the skin.

    • +1

      Been a price rise on those in the last few months, they're $192 or thereabouts now.
      Good mower though, just need more weight to them

  • +2

    1 less in Chatswood now.

    • +2

      Just mowed 300 square metres with included 2.5 batteries.
      Stopped for 15 minutes to give them a top up charge since thet were not fully charged out of the pack.

      Wet grass in Sydney so gave it a bit of work and just kept going.
      I'm impressed so far.

  • To make finding stock easier I've included all the stores with stock for the I/N 0203462

    Are you sure this is the right number, I went in store and the blower/trimmer kit ($99) came up…

    • That's what it was previously listed as on their website. If you're able to get the I/N I can double check.

      • Sorry, didn't see the final number in the end.
        After looking up the I/N, the lady from Bunnings looked up again but with the name and found it in store after all.
        Same I/N is mentioned here

    • +1

      I commented earlier about the I/N being 0296589 which is on Powerpass and the Ozito website
      0203462 is the blower/trimmer kit as you say.

      • Sorry, I missed that.

  • I've had two electric mowers. Rocks slowly shattered bits of plastic underneath the first one until it was as floppy as an Allen's Killer Python. When the first chunk of plastic broke off the Ryobi I sold it off and went back to petrol. The only way I'd consider another electric or battery mower is if someone makes one with a metal base. I have some old petrol mower metal bases and electric motors lying around so I was thinking about making my own… but does anyone already make one? (Electric, metal base, and 18 inch or wider cut?)

    • Ozito make an 18" 18V steel deck….I think they're hard to find though, there was a post about them a while back. Would have been a good buy I reckon

    • Ozito has a steel deck one (referred to in above comments) and yes others do too. The Ego mowers are great but quite expensive, and the Victas I believe make a steel deck also

    • Great, thanks. :-)

  • +2

    This mower is useless. I returned mine because the 15 year old petrol mower which works great, btw, was having to clean up after this.

    • +1

      Petrol mowers will always win if you compare them to the cheapest electric mowers.

  • +3

    Completely useless piece of toy. Waste of time and money. Don't bother with it.

    • +1

      My neighbour has an EGO with more volts. I have this one.
      It works on my Buffalo - I don't care that mine is smaller than his.

  • I love these deals!! I'm a gardener and 8/10 of my clients run Ozito or Ryobi. They then call me to do their lawns at $120 an hour because they simply cut out.

    This is excellent business for me.

    If you want a decent mower then look at something with a 196cc engine. Extremely hard to find now due to emissions but it's what's needed. Alternatively a honda hru196 buffalo pro which needs to be professionally tuned.

  • +2

    The trimmer and mower look good together in the landfill where they belong

    • Even on a commercial scale finding GOOD mowers can be hard now. Either everything is out of stock due to covid and not coming back till August / September or companies just don't make them powerful enough due to emissions which came in 3 years ago.

      Even Victa got rid of their Commercial mowers now they sell for a pretty penny second hand and sell in minutes.

      I think we're left with Bushranger and Toro now for the Aussie market.

  • Any aftermarket batteries available for the Ozito PXC range yet?

    • I don't believe so, but at $48 for 4Ah on special I think you'd be hard-pressed to save much.

  • Bought one after seeing this post. Mowed our lawn approx 100sqm and it looks as good a job as our 20 yr old petrol mower, which does a decent job but is on its way out.

    Not sure how long the mower will last but for price and warranty (with ease of returns at bunnings), it is very good value for money especially for smaller yards. A great purchase for us.

  • +1

    Got it yesterday night. Have three other ozito tools and this was a no brainer.

  • I had one in the cart, but Bunnings staff keep trying to convince me that it is crap, won't last 20 minutes, quality is bad, only useful for tiny lawn etc. Ended up didn't go a head with the purchase.

  • Thanks Clear, the old petrol mower broke on the weekend, so perfect timing to grab one, will do the job on the small 60m2 back yard we have. Picked up from Northand (VIC), there are about 7 of them there.

  • If you bought the mower grab a couple of the 4Ah batteries and it'll work better
